AllMusic had highlighted three official versions of the song as “AllMusic Track Picks”: the Bob Sinclar Remix, Jason Nevins Mix and the original version of the song. A reviewer from the publication Resident Advisor awarded the song four stars out of five. The reviewer said “This is a solid package from Curvve Recordings. “Free” has already received widespread plays from jocks worldwide, this time around it appears that it may well do the same. An absolute crowd puller, and an essential release for any house DJ that is looking for something to fill up a dance floor in seconds.” Dave Sholin from the Gavin Report commented: “Don’t let this one slip by without a careful listen.”
