This review is from: Bloom (Audio CD)
Having taken a while to fully appreciate their last album "Teen Dream" it has now become a regular late night listen. This new one is much more immediate, and mainstream without losing the dreamy quality from before. There seems to be a growing confidence in their work, the vocals and guitars are clearer than before. It's still pretty cool and detached stuff, despite it's new found accessibility. Its not exactly packed with hit singles, but a proper album that needs to be heard all the way through rather than picking out indivdual tracks.
This really is absorbing and beautifully crafted music. I fully expect this to be in lots of year end best album lists in 2012.
