Pages has received generally positive reviews from the music critics. Allmusic's Jared Johnson found that the duo on the release "stretch their legs in the pop realm and rely less on straightforward worship", but "there is little to distinguish this album from other worship projects out there". At CCM Magazine, Andy Conway opined that "Pages is honest, oftentimes in-your-face, deep and challenging" and shows "these guys are great writers/musicians." Linda Michaels of Christian Broadcasting Network called the release "Soulful and soothing, intimate and inspiring". At Christianity Today, Russ Breimeier noted that "Pages is as pretty, passionately performed, and worshipful as you'd expect from Shane & Shane, plus chock full of interesting ideas", however at the same time "the music isn't as compelling, and frankly, sometimes boring." Iain Nash of Cross Rhythms called this "a beautiful album filled to the brim with strong ballads, each song [reflecting] upon the salvation and freedom that can be experienced by resting in the presence of God." Jesus Freak Hideout's Jessica Gregorius proclaimed it to be a "spiritually satisfying release", and wrote that the duo "continue to amaze".
