Sputnikmusic noted the album's differences from its immediate predecessors, which could turn off longtime fans although the album "plays to enough of Boris’ many strengths that longstanding fans will be quick to pounce on it. "Pitchfork called No the best Boris album in a decade, squeezing the band's many interests into "these breathless 40 minutes."
Treble magazine noted that the album "cuts right through the feedback and drone in the interest of a more direct delivery of thrashy riffs and crust-punk intensity." Post-Thrash noted that the album is likely to satisfy both longtime Boris fans, plus fans of hardcore punk and heavy metal. A reviewer for Metal Storm noted that Boris is still capable of delivering surprising new sounds like those on No, after more than two dozen albums.
In the review for AllMusic, Thom Jurek claimed that "While hardly a political album, No reflects the frustration, anger, fear, and helplessness of the 2020 pandemic in a global zeitgeist. While its stylistic hallmarks are undeniably part of the band's musical signature, here they pay homage to the past while simultaneously reflecting the tense uncertainty of the present and future, directly and consistently, making No the band's strongest, most visionary outing since Pink."
