Professional ratings
Review scores
AllMusic4.5/5 stars[2]
The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings4/4 stars[3]

The AllMusic review awarded the album 4½ stars stating "in the case of Science Friction, the result is yet another peak in his recording career -- although when one considers Berne's other releases of the early '00s, the peak looks more like a plateau".[2] The All About Jazz review said that "Compared to Berne's earlier efforts, Science Friction represents a high-water mark. Berne remains one of the most distinctive voices in modern jazz, who—best of all—seems to have an uncanny ability to assemble sympathetic musical collaborators who share his vision".[4]
