    From a glimpse of his rock star lifestyle to transparent parables of his quest for inner peace, Machine Gun Kelly crafts a well-rounded effort that is likely to raise his stock and push his name back into the conversation of respected rappers. Bloom is an effort that’s just short of a comeback, but is very much a step up for Cleveland’s finest.

    Admiringly, it’s taken him his entire career to get to this point and a project like this finds him breaking out of the box he’s occupied since arriving on the scene.

    Bloom feels less like the work of a persona than an authentic attempt at sorting out a sometimes messy life--far from perfect, yet perfectly compelling.

    While Bloom isn't as thrilling as his debut Lace Up, fans of 2015's General Admission will appreciate the familiar blend of pop-savvy rap and the occasional guitar riff. Even though MGK assumes a dark and brooding energy for much of the album, the efforts toward introspective maturity are admirable.

I know he can do better than this! Just watch his Double XL cypher and tell me THIS is what he's been reduced to! With laughable production, just AWFUL flow and lyrics, and a guest appearance from a former Fifth Harmony member, this is truly unacceptable from one of my favorite white rappers. 1/10 Full Review »

Especially "27" and "Kiss the sky" song. That's showing that Kells is writing from his heart and the music he puts out are the parts of his soul. He did really great job with this album.
    Слушаю Келлса со времен Half Naked & Almost Famous, и, на мой взгляд, Bloom вышел тоже по-настоящему классным. Келлсу всегда есть, что сказать, поэтому лирика, как всегда, насыщенная. Он поэкспериментировал со звучанием - и получилось здорово.
