The Skinny

On World Wide Pop, Superorganism find the sweet spot between chaos and structure, silliness and depth.

90
DIY

‘World Wide Pop’ is a joyously over-the-top explosion of audio technicolor, where the group embrace their oddities and eccentricities.

The world sucks and is continually hard but every once in awhile we get treated to a band as fun, wildly awesome, and sweet as Superorganism Here’s to more to come.

London collective’s second album is a big, unrelenting alt-pop record which is never, ever boring.

Uncut

World Wide Pop sounds like a Tumblr feed brought to life.

Gigwise

With World Wide Pop, Superorganism’s sound is refined and sharpened, and as representative of their wacky, colourful universe, it is an excellent manifesto.

Record Collector

World Wide Pop is like the soundtrack to a video arcade orbiting the planet, in the best possible way.

Under the Radar
The results can be overwhelming and unrestrained, but they also capture a freewheeling euphoric high that is undeniable. Even if you may want to enjoy it in moderation, the band’s universalist vision of indie pop has a little something for everyone.

Exclaim!

This is an album that throws everything at the wall, and most of it sticks. Best enjoyed in the present.

The Line of Best Fit

Ultimately, World Wide Pop works best in small doses. Still, Superorganism’s displays of creativity and personality are admirable and will get them farther than most in modern indie pop.

Rolling Stone

The fire hose of arch-pop cleverness will overload even the sharpest mind.

The Needle Drop
A mostly fun sophomore effort from the indie pop outfit.

AllMusic

A second album can be a true test of whether a band has lasting power. Judging by the tepid performance of World Wide Pop, it doesn't look good for Superorganism or the fans who were transported by their debut album.

Slant Magazine

The indie-pop group’s sophomore effort doubles down on their copy-and-paste approach, but this time with mixed results.

Still Listening

London-based indie-pop quintet Superorganism’s second album World Wide Pop is as chaotic and as confused as its predecessor.

If Kidz Bop made original music.

'World Wide Pop' serves as a step forward to Superorganism collection of albums. The indie group that released a truly original debut self-titled album in 2018, comes back years after to show how much they developed their sound; This time around, the production is clearly more interesting, mixing a lot of electropop with indie rock, some 2000's pop nuances with also loads of new hyperpop influence. What makes them stand out it's actually the fact that they mix a lot of genres and somehow make ... read more

It's enjoyable despite being a couple pegs short of their debut.

Album #9 from Album Safari 2022.
Everything Falls Apart, ironically, was the only one that caught my attention. Simply put, it’s too safe to be interesting.

World Wide Pop is still a fun ride, even if Superorganism sound seems a little safer this time around.

I came to this album knowing that Superorganism’s music is really hit or miss, and that's exactly what I heard. I liked some songs, loved some songs, didn't really enjoy some songs, didn't like some songs at all, and I’m ok with that. This album, as all of their work, is incredibly creative and risk taking, heavy and crazy on the production, always with a really fun, shiny and bubbly sound. And i enjoyed the journey here, because even if i didn't completely enjoy/like about half of ... read more
