The British music news site Gigwise wrote in a news that it considers the song a highlight of the longplayer.:
"'Show Your Bones', the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' second album is ram packed with superb tunes and 'Turn Into' is one of the highlights of a long-player certain to feature high on the 'Album Of The Year' polls come December."[2]

Slant Magazine album review (2006, April 6)

The American online magazine Slant Magazine considers the song a heady closer on the album:
"At turns blunt ... and cryptic (O. repeats the phrase “I know what I know” on heady closer “Turn Into”), Show Your Bones is an album that, through sheer force of will, transforms anxiety into confidence."[3]

PopMatters article (2006, March 29)

The international pop culture magazine PopMatters describes the song as a gorgeous rock ballad:
"Though the resulting album produced some utterly gorgeous rock-ballads (“Dudley”, “Cheated Hearts”, “Turn Into”), the recording sessions were rife with tension, largely because the whole album began as a Karen O solo project;"[4]
