SourceRating
AllMusic4/5 stars[3]
PopMatters8/10 stars[4]

Stephen Thomas Erlewine at AllMusic gave Shockwave Supernova four stars out of five, calling it "proud egghead music that grooves on its own technical acumen" and that it "feels like a collaborative record; it's as fun to hear [Satriani] play with his band as it is to hear him soar on his own."[3]

Jedd Beaudoin at PopMatters gave the album eight stars out of ten, describing it as "one of Satch's most memorable adventures" and "a record that will please the casual listener as much as the musical scholar". Praise was also given to the "crazy good" rhythm section of Minnemann and Beller, with Beaudoin saying that he hopes for Satriani to release a live album featuring the two musicians.[4]
