Critical reception

Tamar Herman of Billboard described the track as an "evocative pop-rock ballad that serves as an ode to the band's time together, with the members promising to return to the fans after their mandatory military service. Herman also highlighted that the "poignant rap from T.O.P at the song's climax" which was "accompanied by a sample of cheering fans" was a way of incorporating Big Bang's fans "into their farewell for the foreseeable future."[2] Jeff Benjamin of Fuse complimented the "powerful, pop production and subject matter" that gave "Last Dance" an "emotional punch". Benjamin also felt that the single "reads like a love letter", demonstrating the close connection between Big Bang and their fans.[12] In a review of the album, KKBOX wrote that the anxious menssage of the single felt "realistic", allowing the listeners to feel "fascinated" and "moved" while listening.[13]
