Simply put: this is an exceptional masterclass in music making. It’s been a long time since I’ve enjoyed an album of this sort, and it’s mainly down to the fact he’s a musician in the know; he has the knowledge and the tools to attain what he wants.

AllMusic

While Voicenotes can be loosely classified as a fame-response album ... it counteracts Puth's artistic frustrations and in every aspect surpasses Nine Track Mind

60
Rolling Stone

While his efforts on Voicenotes are valiant, he still has a bit more work to prove he can cut his teeth with the Justin Timberlakes and the Nick Jonases of that over-saturated world.

60
NME

After the beige offering of his debut, album two puts his stellar songwriting and cheeky lyrics front and centre, and in doing so, starts to carve him a place as a popstar in his own right.

Spectrum Culture

He’s not much of a horndog—but who is he? On an album that is supposedly more liberating, the artist should give us more of an idea.

The Young Folks

Puth definitely took a step forward artistically. There’s sprinkles of ambition and ingenuity all throughout Voicenotes. However, the songwriter’s lyrical limitations were exposed multiple times on creative choices that were obviously encouraged by the label.

It's pretty pretentious and generic but honestly, there are some cool things here and there, specially some of the melodies and bass lines. Not enough to make me enjoy this project tho

Charlie Puth has chosen a better musical way! THIS IS HUGE SURPRISE when we compare the material with the debut. I always hope, however, that the musician will choose better music.

I KNOW! THIS IS A COMMERCIAL MUSIC BUT IS BEAUTY PREPARED AND DOES NOT CONTAIN TRAP !!!! THIS IS A GREAT THING.

The Way I Am is one of the singles of the year and Boy or Slow it Down is also great songs at a very good level.

I love such transformations.
