On Metacritic, which assigns a rating out of 100 based on reviews from mainstream critics, the album gained an average score of 37, based on 7 reviews, indicating "generally unfavorable reviews," making it the 15th worst critic-reviewed album on the website.The Guardian's Rachel Aroesti gave Nine Track Mind three out of five stars, saying, "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." In a negative review for Pitchfork, Jia Tolentino -- recognizing Puth's talent and "considerable abilities" -- wrote that "the album's emotional range covers the spectrum from light longing to light infatuation, contributing to the overall sense that Nine Track Mind is aimed exclusively at hairlessness: children, prepubescents, the discomfitingly waxed."
