Hard Rock Hideout said that the album was Warrant's best since Dog Eat Dog , and that "the whole vibe of this [album] sounds like Warrant in their heyday". [4] Allmusic said that while Born Again did not "stretch the boundaries," it was nevertheless a "superb set of hard rock songs that sound and feel better than most music from the '80s" and praised the band's willingness to keep "consistency and faith in the original concept" of their music.
