Allmusic.com gave Back in the USA a 4 1/2 star review:
While lacking the monumental impact of Kick Out the Jams, the MC5’s second album is in many regards their best and most influential, its lean, edgy sound anticipating the emergence of both the punk and power pop movements to follow later in the decade. … Back in the USA captures a live-wire intensity 180 degrees removed from the group’s live sound yet perfectly suited to the material at hand, resulting in music which not only salutes the power of rock & roll but also reaffirms it.
