CRITIC REVIEWS

The Guardian

While his traditionalism can feel staid, the standard of his songwriting is consistently high, and his central theme – romantic obsession that verges on the masochistic – makes for a record that softly burns.

Entertainment Weekly
He’s made his ambitions clear early with the album’s lead singles—the inescapable and irritating “Marvin Gaye” and “One Call Away”—but the 11-track collection here won’t get him into the same clubhouse as Justin Timberlake.

AllMusic
Vulnerability is often an asset to singers, particularly in matters concerning love, but Puth's problem is that he feels stage-managed; you can sense him hitting his marks

Spin
We’re not in Timberlake or even Bieber territory here — limiting our musical parallels strictly to the competition Puth deserves, Nick Jonas is Stevie Wonder by comparison and the Cash Money-vetted teenster Austin Mahone is West End Records-era Peech Boys.

Pitchfork

Like the best-selling (i.e. blandest) model home in the up-and-coming suburb, Nine Track Mind is demoralizingly well-constructed as a means to an end, and it’s because of Puth’s considerable abilities, and not in spite of them, that the album induces such despair.

Marvin, sorry for Charlie Puth and Megan Trainor.

Utterly repulsive.
Complete carbon-copy horse shit that gets mass produced week in and out.
I've thankfully never been subjected to his music before seeing all the negative attention it's been getting on here, which is what made me want to join in on the fun.

This was NOT fucking fun.
