AllMusic Review by

Full of energetic, memorable pop songs, the Super Friendz' full-length debut is a smart and sweet concoction. Witty lyrics and brisk, hopelessly harmonious arrangements are peppered throughout, and while several songs wander into mediocrity, crisp standouts like "10 lbs.," "Undertow," "When They Paid Me" and "Better Call" make up for the album's few weaknesses. The Wings-ish "One Day" is a wonderfully melodic denouement. Sometimes moody and observant, often sentimental and wistful, Mock Up is a noteworthy introduction to the Friendz. The album was nominated for a Juno award in 1996 for Best Alternative Album.
