Jul 18, 2022Generally though, World Wide Pop is full of inventive, bold pop music – sometimes sugary sweet like the acoustic led Crushed.zip, and sometimes big and anthemic such as the CHAI and Pi Ja Ma collaboration Teenager. And, as ever with Superorganism, it’s never, ever boring.
Jul 15, 2022While the highs on the album are high, the lows are apparent and hard to ignore. There is a battle between the band’s influences and their own vision for their sound which leaves them with a batch of great ideas that weren’t executed to their full potential.
Jul 11, 2022Ultimately, World Wide Pop succumbs to sameiness, with several songs in a row set to a similarly frantic tempo and overly compressed, treble-heavy sound mix. Rather than allowing individual sounds to stand out, the chaotic placement of samples makes them all run together.
Positive: 1 out of 1
Mixed: 0 out of 1
Negative: 0 out of 1

I thought that the singles were great, even though I felt like they relied on their features way too much. I see a lot of critics giving this album mixed reviews (50s), and while I agree that the tracks on this album that aren't very good are quite repulsive at times, I don't believe that this record is bad nonetheless.
The highlights on this record were great, such as the singles and "Don't let the colony collapse". I can even notice (and clearly hear) some Avalanches influences in there, going as far as re-using the same samples from their 2020 record "We Will Always Love You"… Expand
