Upon release, Cutterpillow received positive reviews from music critics, most of them pointing out the more mature and cohesive, brimming with enjoyable, substantive songs.
In retrospect, David Gonzales of Allmusic gave the album four and a half out of five stars, noticing the more substantive sound with only a touch of "kiddie pop", where he described their previous record Circus as "lightweight and superficial". He applauded the song "Back2Me", saying "[the song] moves on a punkish vibe, the reverb-drenched guitars overlaid with the vocalist singing a catchy, snappy melody reminiscent of Green Day. He further described the opening reverb-edged guitar figure of "Waiting for the Bus" as "enchanting, as is the song itself, highlighted by a rapturous chorus". He likened the song "Poorman's Grave" and stated "In fact, there isn't a bad song on the album".
He also compared "Ang Huling El Bimbo" to that of The Beatles, and added "This is a fine, enjoyable album, one of the best ever made in the Philippines.
