The album has received generally mixed reviews from music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from critics, the album received an average score of 52, which indicates "mixed or average reviews", based on 4 reviews.[4] Gregory Heaney of Allmusic described Siren Charms as "a bit too casual." However he stated it as "a solidly written and executed metal album" and that fans of the bands latest material will likely enjoy it.[1] critic Chad Bowar wrote: "While not a perfect album by any means, Siren Charms is not the abomination some have made it out to be." He also further added: "There are plenty of solid songs, with the album’s charms diminished by a few uneven ones."[5] Kyle Ward of Sputnikmusic however panned the album, describing it as "an unforgivable misstep containing oversights in both songwriting and execution that such a veteran band should be able to spot and correct."[7]
