    While his traditionalism can feel staid (even Ed Sheeran, Puth’s UK equivalent when it comes to lovelorn beta-male balladeers, takes a risk once in a while), 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.

    Much of the album is G-Rated tales of love (songs about beautiful girls and boys who love them) drowning in an ocean of power-pop gloss.

    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.

    There are flashes of something special on Suffer, and the surprisingly sultry Selena Gomez collaboration We Don’t Talk Anymore, but in general, Puth’s anonymity is infuriating.

    The most standout feature of Nine Track Mind might be its rhythmic consistency, an exercise in deceleration.... inoffensive dross.

    It doesn’t help that Nine Track Mind is all ballads except for three tracks, two of which are duets (Trainor, a sleepy Selena Gomez) that somehow still feel like ballads. Puth cannot fill this frame of sentimentality with any genuine sentiment.

    Charlie has a long way to go. He has to learn how to better express himself. This album is just a start of a exceptional vocalist. HeCharlie has a long way to go. He has to learn how to better express himself. This album is just a start of a exceptional vocalist. He certainly needs guidance and experience. "One Call Away" is anyway a wonderful song. Expand

    Es claro que Charlie tiene talento, pero esto es simplemente tedioso y aburrido. Si tuviera que describir el álbum en una palabra sería MONÓTONO.
