The album The Desaturating Seven received an average score of 68/100 from 9 reviews on Metacritic, indicating “generally favorable reviews”.

AllMusic's Neil Z. Yeung: The album is "typically eccentric, it's an interesting exercise, although nonessential outside the sphere of Primus/Claypool devotees."
Nina Corcoran of The A.V. Club had a positive impression, noting the album's digestibility and admirable message.
A consequence of Sound's Brice Ezell criticizes the album's length, saying that it "errs a bit too much on the side of brevity, resulting in a record that feels like an EP that has overstayed its welcome."
Alan Ranta of Exclaim! said that The Desaturating Seven "demonstrate[s] songcraft beyond the great majority of Primus' catalogue."
PopMatters' Chris Conaton also lamented the album's shortness, but he praised its music, calling it "the tightest, most focused album of Primus' career."
