Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic described the album as "the sound of a aging outsider, reconnecting to his rebel roots, and that's what's appealing about I Killed the Zeitgeist: it's rough and unfinished, but it's utterly alive, with its misfires as interesting as its successes, which makes it not only a strong solo debut but some of Wire's most compelling music in years."
