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.

Northern Transmissions
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.

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.

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

Record Collector

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

Exclaim!

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

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.

Rolling Stone

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

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.

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

Slant Magazine

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

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.

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.

While a bit of a mixed bag, I felt the experimental and happy-sounding millenial pop offered here was overall enjoyable.

Top tracks:

In no way as polarizing as their debut (possibly because this one isn't so incredibly nostalgic) but still a great listen from one of the most exciting bands to go viral in the late 2010s. Also that cover is by far one of my favorites of the year.
