    Making perfect pop isn’t easy, but Troye Sivan is a star who’s done his homework. With one foot in pop’s past and another in its present, Bloom is a record that could turn its considerate maker into one of mainstream music’s most revered and fascinating talents.

    Here, Sivan has created an album that does away with any apology; instead it sees him seize happiness with both hands.

    Bloom is an exceptional pop album, but maybe more importantly it’s a beacon for queer people who struggle to reconcile our neuroses--societal and personal--with our potential for joy and love.

    Occasionally sentimental but always endearing, it's impressive stuff. [Oct 2018, p.116]

    At a taut ten tracks, Bloom is an unambiguous statement from Sivan, clear in its intent to celebrate the highs and lows of queer love through the eyes of a proud pop star in the making.

    The results are characterful. Bloom is done and dusted in 35 crisp minutes – a time at which some pop albums are reaching their mid-point--and feels like a coherent, artist-led album rather than a bet-spreading collection of songs designed to hit every popular musical base.

    The songs that leave the most lasting impression are the most downbeat.

    this album is a solid 10 and here's why: his songwriting is really good, original and you can relate to it A LOT, the cohesion is amazingthis album is a solid 10 and here's why: his songwriting is really good, original and you can relate to it A LOT, the cohesion is amazing (there isn't one single song that doesn't fit with the concept of the album) and also his growth in creativity, because to put up visuals, songs and production like this you must me a hard-worker genius Expand

Troye Sivan stunned Bloom after Blue Neighborhood was nominated for Grammy in the category "Best Music Film" is an outrage not to have been nominated for the 2019 Grammy's. Collapse Expand

    As a huge fan of Blue Neighborhood, I was enormously excited for this album, and if Sweetener hadn't come out the week before it would easilyAs a huge fan of Blue Neighborhood, I was enormously excited for this album, and if Sweetener hadn't come out the week before it would easily be the biggest disappointment of the year. i struggle to think of an album more middling and mediocre, so noncommital in all of its facets, so easily forgotten and confused with a million other projects most of which at least have a few high points. There's only one good song on the album-Animal-and even then it's more just good within the context of an awful album rather than good when stacked against other projects. The most frustrating thing about the album is that you sense there was potential here-and indeed, Blue Neighborhood showcases Troye's undeniable talent. That talent is invisible on this record. If you thoguht Troye was uncharismatic on BN, he's a brick wall here, unmoving, uncommitted to whatever he happens to be seeing about. The lyrics are as basic as can be. Only a few are outright cringey, but they're bad all the same. The production is the true saving grace here but with a performer who sounds so bored, the life is sucked out of the songs before they can even find their footing. Expand
