  1. 9.1 |   Pretty Much Amazing

    It’s a hearty mix, but that’s not to communicate that Superorganism are just good curators, they also are fresh creators

  2. 9.0 |   Exclaim

    Superorganism easily meets and exceeds the hype surrounding this talented group
    Read Review

  3. 8.3 |   Consequence Of Sound

    The bizarro eight-piece's self-titled effort offers up a bounty of rich aural textures

  4. 8.0 |   Clash

    The disorientating utopian ride you take when listening to this album in full will no doubt bring you glee, and maybe some weird dreams if you think about being a prawn too much

  5. 8.0 |   All Music

    Superorganism know exactly what they are doing at all times, slicing and dicing like master chefs, then reassembling the bits and bobs of pop ephemera into a concoction that has a sugary kick sweeter and fizzier than an ice-cold cola

  6. 8.0 |   Earbuddy

    Infectious, electronic pop that sounds pieced together from Internet DNA
    Read Review

  7. 8.0 |   Uncut

    Benefits from a surprising amount of focus and discipline that belies the woozy feel of the group's fun and savvy synthesis of the bricolage hip-hop of vintage Gorillaz and Avalanches, and the Day-Glo psych-pop of Animal Collective. Print edition only

  8. 7.8 |   Pitchfork

    The debut from the UK collective is a hugely accomplished reflection of the present, a magpie-friendly collage of pop all glued together by the laconic voice of Orono Noguchi

  9. 7.6 |   Paste Magazine

    It’s pretty irresistible stuff, and they seem to know it
    Read Review

  10. 7.0 |   Mixmag

    Fans of wacky earworm ‘Something For Your M.I.N.D.’ will be pleased to find that nothing here strays too far from that winning formula
    Read Review

  11. 7.0 |   music OMH

    This is a startling debut that pulls off the trick of sounding utterly disposable and simultaneously full of substance

  12. 7.0 |   Under The Radar

    While it's more than a little uneven, however, there are more new things being attempted on Superorganism than you might find on 10 other artists' records combined. They may not always nail their landing, but Superorganism at least max out their scores for creativity

  13. 7.0 |   God Is In The TV

    Superorganism’s production is Red Bull-fuelled. It’s muliticoloured yet haphazard and spontaneous in its pace
    Read Review

  14. 6.8 |   Gig Soup

    The internet collective release their much-hyped debut with fairly mixed results
    Read Review

  15. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    Are these just basic pop songs adorned with a multitude of bells and whistles, or are Superorganism pioneers in their field? It’s most likely the former – but that’s okay, too

  16. 6.0 |   NME

    The pop collective channel Animal Collective and MGMT on their kooky debut
    Read Review

  17. 6.0 |   DIY

    Every song is born from the same basic stem cells; fuelled by the same thirst for weirdness
    Read Review

  18. 6.0 |   Mojo

    Cute, but tiring over a whole LP. Print edition only

  19. 6.0 |   Q

    Standouts Everybody Wants To Be Famous and Something For Your M.I.N.D.. The rest divides between disposable cut-and-paste experiments and breezy indie-dance. Print edition only

  20. 6.0 |   The Skinny

    Recalls the energy and fun of early-mid 00s electro indie pop but ultimately lacks in substance
    Read Review

  21. 3.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    On the one hand, it’s perhaps unwise to overthink the musings of a 17-year-old and her pals; on the other, it’s perhaps unwise to record and publish them
