AllMusic Review by

Save Yourself, the Make-Up's sixth album in just over three years, reflects not only the group's prolific nature but the corresponding growth spurt in their sound as well. Though it's not as eclectic as their singles compilation I Want Some, Save Yourself's nine tracks include rave-ups like "White Belts" and moody, psychedelic pieces like the title track and "I Am Pentagon." Brendan Canty's clean production and the songs' intricate arrangements make this album the most accomplished and limber blend of punk, gospel, psychedelia, and soul from the Make-Up -- that is, until their next album.
