    Another unoriginal boring album not unlike their previous pile of rubbish. I would not recommend it to anyone with a modicum music listening experience.

    Clearly inferior to their previous and wonderful album, uninspired, with less tunes and much more standardized production values, I really am amazed at all the critics who define it as a career peak. Gets really boring and I am even disturbed with Victoria's new-found voice. Disappointing to say the least...

    Melodies, hooks, and choruses evince Beach House's candy core, but the nonexistent separation of sound makes the Blooming disc sound as if it's filtered through a dryer vent.

    It is a lot like Teen dream, but novelty is hardly the point: if Beach House are your type, then Bloom is unlikely to see the attraction wither. [Jun 2012, p.93]

    Bloom has continued making Beach House a Thing in indie music, a band that has a feasible future, that won't be just forgotten and left by the wayside. It's nothing to get excited about.
