Critical reception

"Let Me Know" received positive reviews from music critics. While reviewing Overpowered, Mark Edwards of The Sunday Times commented that the song's hook is "strong enough to compensate for the album's duller moments." Nick Levine of Digital Spy gave the song four out of five stars, stating that it "melds propulsive synths, a nineties house piano riff and Murphy's crystalline vocals to create a groove that's harder to resist that a night of passion with Brad or Angelina (or both of them—whatever floats your boat, eh?)." Gemma Hampson wrote for musicOMH that it "retains a bit of that Moloko odd-ness that set the band aside from all the other disco, funk, dance groups around at the same time. Murphy's soft and feminine voice sits well above the '80s bouncy bass and funky electro percussion. It's got a good, retro beat, ruined slightly by the dated fake piano heard all too much in dance in the past 25 years."
