Critical Reception[]

Kyle Mullin of Exclaim! commented: "Her chemistry with her bandmates, along with the album's producers, is evident. And there's little wonder why — Ruby gleams like a pristinely produced jewel in comparison to Gray's aptly named 2016 LP Stripped, which consisted of raw, overdub free takes for the singer and a small band".

Simone Torn of Spill Magazine stated "This album is appropriately called Ruby, because it’s a pure gem. Whoever says music has lost all soul clearly has never heard Gray’s new album".

Pablo Gorondi of The Detroit News wrote "Macy Gray sounds mainly joyful and enthusiastic on Ruby and the zest evident across her 10th album, even when the theme is misfortune or heartbreak, is infectious. Her trademark jazzy soul and R&B foundations are accounted for, but the arrangements have a deceptively light touch and let Gray’s vocals and effervescent personality shine through".
