Marty Sartini Garner of Pitchfork praised "Trippin' on a Hole in a Paper Heart" as a representation of alternative rock "whose burning chorus would've fit on Alice in Chains' Dirt ,and whose choppy,pepped-up verses cleared a happier path out of grunge that bands like Third Eye Blind would gladly follow."
In 2015, Loudwire and Stereogum ranked the song number six and number one,respectively,on their lists of the 10 greatest Stone Temple Pilots songs.
