Life's a Trip received a lukewarm response from critics. Charles Holmes of XXL described the album as "indulgent, polished and deeply personal", adding that "Vocally, his balance between restrained and bombastic delivery is unmatched."[7] Scott Glaysher of HipHopDX praised the album's experimentation and genre-blending: "His young artistry shines through as he paints life pictures across all genres – not just with hi-hats and thundering 808s."[1]

In a mixed review, Alphonse Pierre of Pitchfork noted monotony in the production and a lack of identity: "Life’s a Trip is stuffed with forced production choices that impair Trippie’s over-the-top voice from hitting all of its quirks. It’s clear Trippie needs more time to develop his sound and iron out a direction that doesn’t feel like a detour. A great Trippie Redd album is possible, but first he needs to destroy all of the guitars in his vicinity, block Diplo’s cell, and use his voice and Soundcloud rooted style that got him here in the first place."[6]
