Critical ReceptionEdit

Allmusic wrote: "Gray still wields her hoarse yet tuneful voice like a genius, hitting every note she wants despite the cracks and never letting it sound overly contrived. Unfortunately, she also continues to be the victim of chart-focused, overly market-tested arrangements that never break out of the mold of soulful, organic R&B and pop."

Entertainment Weekly wrote: "To call Macy Gray's new album, The Trouble With Being Myself, delightful is to minimize its sensual intelligence and considerable emotional depth."

Vibe Magazine wrote: "While less preposterous than her second album, The Id, this is still a frustrating piece of work."
