Upon release, Trustfall was met with a positive response from music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalised rating out of 100 based on reviews from mainstream critics, the album received a score of 71 out of 100, based on reviews from nine critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".
Maura Johnston of Rolling Stone wrote that the songs on Trustfall lyrically "don't shy away from irascibility or eye-rolling" but "feel like they're coming from a genuine place" and that "Pink's appeal comes from her ability to turn the everyday into the stereo-ready". Cady Siregar of Consequence found the singer "still wearing her emotions on her sleeve, keen to embrace a deep sense of vulnerability as she processes some extremely difficult events", publishing her "most overt attempt at storytelling and introspection" in her discography. However, Siregar wrote that Pink "is playing it safe" because "trying to radiate emotional honesty without the risk of coming off as slightly banal is something even the best pop stars find hard to do". 041b061a72
