The album charted at number 129 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart.[10] Upon its release, One Day It Will Please Us to Remember Even This received generally positive reviews from most music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalised rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 75 based on 25 reviews, which indicates "generally favorable reviews".[11] Allmusic writer Mark Deming gave it 4 out of 5 stars and complimented the songs' "frequent philosophical musings and multisyllabic constructions", stating "this is heady stuff coming from what was once was a band of decadent street punk fashion mavens".[1] Entertainment Weekly's Tom Sinclair noted that the album is characterized by the "rowdy professionalism" of lead singer David Johansen's early solo work.[12] Andrew Perry of The Observer wrote that "Rather than try to replicate Thunders's edge-of-collapse riffage, they simply try to imagine how great they would have sounded if they had actually had their shit together back in the day".[3] Doug Brod of Spin gave the album 4 out of 5 stars and called it "a striking return to form".[7]

In contrast, Pitchfork Media's Stuart Berman expressed a mixed response towards the band's less provocative style on the album and stated "In a sense, the Dolls personify the changes their hometown has undergone in the past three decades; the streets still bustle with tension and excitement, but the fear of getting mugged has subsided considerably".[4] NME gave the album a 4/10 rating and stated "What's left of the genius glam-punksters has returned in the guise of an above-average pub-rock band".[11] Chicago Tribune writer perceived a "lack of personality" from the band's new members.[13] Charlotte Robinson of PopMatters cited its songwriting as "the real head-scratcher" and described the album as "an odd little number perched somewhere between being embarrassing Dolls-by-numbers and true to the original band’s memory".[5] Leonie Cooper of The Guardian gave the album 3 out of 5 stars and noted its "beefed-up production and Johansen's more gravelly voice" as a "giveaway", but noted that band's lyrics "have matured".[14]

Q called it "a career highlight", while Mojo noted "What's most remarkable is just how like the old Dolls this new record sounds".[11] Eylsa Gardner of USA Today described the album as "a swaggering, nostalgia-free blast of blues-drenched R&B raunch".[8] Rolling Stone writer David Fricke viewed that the band "have honed the legendary mania of the early records into a tightened combustion that is part 'Personality Crisis' but also packs the matured anxiety and tattered-Sixties classicism of Johansen's 1978 solo debut".[6] Writing for Blender, critic Robert Christgau called Johansen "far more practiced and studied" and commended his songwriting.[2] In his review for The Village Voice, Christgau viewed that Johansen's lyrics incorporate "religious feelings" and stated "He has internalized his mortality so thoroughly that he realizes he won't be 56 forever. This is a true Dolls album ... But it also expresses the worldview of a lean, strong-piped guy who understands what makeup is for and knows that he may not be pretty in pink forever".[9]
