Critical Reception

Allmusic's Andrew Leahey gave the album a rating of two-and-a-half stars out of five, praising the first track, Thriller/Heads Will Roll, as well as Paltrow's appearances.

However, he found monotony in Glee's conventional mix of popular music and show tunes, even with the two original tracks.

Rolling Stone's Jody Rosen gave Loser Like Me a four-star rating out of five, and felt its message related well to the show's theme. While initial sales projections were set at 75,000 copies, Glee: The Music, Volume 5 sold 90,000 copies in the US, debuting at number three on the Billboard 200. The album debuted on the New Zealand Albums Chart at number thirty-five and climbed to number three the next week. On the Australian Albums Chart,Volume 5 debuted at number one, becoming the second album by the cast to reach the top spot, following Glee: The Music, Volume 3 - Showstoppers. In Canada, the album debuted at #3 on the Canadian Albums Chart, selling 5,700 copies in its second week of release. The album debuted in Ireland on April 14, 2011 at number five.
