Critical ReceptionEdit

At Metacritic, which assigns a normalised rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, "Strip Me" received a weighted average score of 60, based on 4 reviews, which indicates "mixed or average reviews".

Mikael Wood of Entertainment Weekly gave Strip Me a C rating and wrote that it "plays like one long, increasingly desperate pep talk. The only breather? 'Unexpected Hero,' a lovely late-Beatles-style ballad."

AllMusic editor Stephen Thomas Erlewine noted the album for "retaining [the] same blend of well-manicured R&B and European sophistication" of Bedingfield's debut album and commented that she "plays it exceptionally safe, to the extent that she even tones down the self-empowerment of her first two records, preferring pristine blue-eyed soul and adult contemporary ballads, all tailored for an aspirational upscale lifestyle".

Slant Magazine's Jonathon Keefe found it "single-minded in its uplifting, inspirational tone", writing in conclusion that "Bedingfield uses her powerful voice to oversing most of her material, making Strip Me feel like even more of a sermon. It may not be the year's worst pop album, but it might just be the most exhausting and heavy-handed."
