Now2/5 stars[5]

Exclaim! gave I've Failed You a positive review, referring to the album as Kittie's "most accomplished release to date" and that the tracks "We Are the Lamb," "What Have I Done" and "Empires (Part 2)" feature some of their best songwriting to date.[4] About.com gave the album a positive review, opining that Kittie's "musical chops have grown stronger, their songwriting more consistent" while "The songs on the second half of the album aren't quite as memorable as the first half, but there are still plenty of quality tracks."[6] Allmusic gave the album a two and a half star rating out of five, stating that the album "sounds nearly interchangeable with their previous releases, which may provide solace for some of the quartet's many fans, but will likely provide a whole lot of ammunition for their detractors."[3] NOW gave the album a two star out of five rating, criticizing the album as being "devoid of memorable lyrics, riffs or melodies"[5]
