Critical Reception[]

"Hearts in Armor" was immediately released following Trisha Yearwood's divorce with her first husband and has been considered one of her greatest albums.

The album received mostly positive reviews from critics. Thom Jurek of Allmusic called it "one of the best heartbreak records country music delivered in the '80s and '90s."

Alanna Nash of Entertainment Weekly gave the album an "A+", writing: "Despite the infectious but empty little ditty about an achy breaky heart that captured the nation’s teeny-weeny attention span this summer, an increasing number of country performers today embrace what might be called Nashville’s New Realism. Rejecting gimmicky tunes for lyrically strong songs packed with power and emotion, they also, for the most part, shun glitzy stage presentation and manufactured image for superlative musicianship."

In its review of the album, Rolling Stone wrote: "On a disc that offers much to admire – Garth Fundis's sparkling production, sensitive instrumental support, first-rate songs – Yearwood's singing is the most compelling element. She has added both sass and depth to her seductive tone. Hearts is hard country, starkly rendered and personal to an often-startling degree; it tests listeners' expectations as fully as the artist tests herself."
