    A defined indie pop album. With Saves The World, made MUNA, even though pretty much like any other great indie pop acts, really delineate themselves to the point where they're recognizable.

    Shockingly good!!! Went into this only having heard Number One Fan and came out extremely satisfied. Top 3 albums this year for sure.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. MUNA really saved the world with this album. It’s filled with sad bops, they really snapped with this one! Expand

    One of the most solid pop albums to come out this year. They’re definitely the gay Dixie chicks. Queens snappedt

    Saves the World approaches adulthood with unabashed honesty, so you’ll be ready to smash the system a little more gently. And while MUNA’s pop is preoccupied with that greater sense of purpose, it carries its heavy heart to the dancefloor.

    The thumping drums and syncopated string throughout still channel the 1980s, while Good News (Ya-Ya Song) harks back to the summer of 1999, all clipped guitar and MTV beats. [Oct 2019, p.114]
  3. Often ‘Saves the World’ is brutal in its specificity – with devastating effects.
