Exclaim!

It's a lack of originality that turns the sound stale rather quickly.

AllMusic

The Toronto native is in a similar mode here, over predominantly trap-styled tracks that are more about creating a low-wattage soundtrack for chemical and sexual mischief than foundations for songs.

Nav is little other than a smelted down, half-heartedly rendered image of a bad trend, disserviced by bad and difficult to distinguish songs. As a result, NAV is front-to-back one of the blandest takes on the genre so far. Now that's an achievement, however dubious.

NOW Magazine

NAV’s songcraft is sharp, but the lack of dynamics ultimately makes this debut feel one-note.

Occasionally good, mostly mediocre. I mean i guess it isn't bad but it's not impressive. There's not much to this album. He just sometimes makes a good song, and that's it.

Sounds like every other Toronto rapper/singer out there. Bryson Tiller, Tory Lanez, Drake, The Weeknd, PartyNextDoor etc. Traces of all of them are here. It's incredibly generic, the only people that I could imagine liking this are people who have no concern for musicianship, songwriting, inventiveness or anything like that, and just want to be fed the same ol' same ol'. I however, prefer music with y'know, actual creativity, so I fucking despised this mixtape.
