Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote a positive review for Allmusiccommenting that "There may not be singles that are as immediately grabbing as " It Ain't Over 'til It's Over ", " Let Í Tígullaga Dal - Todmobile - Opera Rule " and " Are You Gonna Go My Way ", but there are no dull spots, either, and this easily stands alongside his first three albums Right Brigade - Bad Brains - Rock For Light a set of classy, near-irresistible pop for listeners weaned on classic and college rock, which is a wholly welcome surprise.
This is the exact antithesis of everything music stands for. Its stale, unoriginal, formulaic, repetitive, and shows as much originality and passion as a tribute band. This is nothing more than a self-indulgent, artistic void of turd poured into plastic". Sal Cinquemani wrote for Slant Magazine that "the singer's classic rock influence and devoted recreation of it is once again evident on Lenny, with tracks like "Yesterday Is Gone" and "A Million Miles Away" recalling the crisp harmonies of John Lennon and the electric guitar riffs of Jimi Hendrix.
