This is okay. If you liked Teen Dream then I'd imagine you'll like this but you won't be blown away by it at all.

Beach House have just churned out their most loveable album to date with their fourth LP Bloom! i could happily just leave it at that, but you guys probably need something a little bit more convincing to go on i'm sure. Myth and Lazuli are two songs that have been used as bait to reel in potential newcomers with free streams available of them before the albums official release. And it's hard to query their logic, their both stunners featuring glistening keyboards, impassioned singing courtesy of Victoria Legrand and that familarly distinctive sound of Alex Scully's Fender Stratocaster. All in all honesty though i could have just described any of the songs on Bloom as they all feature similar instruments give or take some scintillating percussion. what seperates these wonders is the plethora of inspired melodies each track has to offer combined with the heartfelt and thought provoking lyricism that's also brought to the fore. "What comes after this momentary bliss, the consequence of what you do to me" almost sliced my heart in half when Victoria Legrand romantically bellows this on Myth. And the melodies on Bloom are some of the most tender i've heard since Yo La Tengo's gorgeous And Then Nothing Turned Itself Out.

The revolving riff on "Irene" from 3.30 on follwed by the flurry of cymbal crashes is so transcendentally stunning you'll wish the song goes on for a lot longer then it's 17 minute length (or that they'd filled the silence in between at least). The moaning MY bloody Valentine guitars in "New Year" always get me to, their filled with such nostalgic melancholy.

This album has a similar dreamy soundcape to the previous excellent Teen Dream . It features lots of moody keyboards from Victoria Le Grand with Alex Scully accompanying on guitar and keyboards . There are often dense arrangements, creating an ambient soundscape wash. Victoria Le Grand's lead vocals can sometimes be difficult to make out, but more lyrics emerge from the mix than on the previous album. These songs grow on you, with subtle nuances discovered on repeated listens , and they continue to create their own unique sound, maybe not disimilar to the Cocteau Twins at times. The arrangements are perhaps a bit more varied than on the previous album, but overall they never stray too far from the characteristic sound that they make together. So this is a gradual evolution, nothing revolutionary, ploughing their own distinct furrow. 10 new tracks gently flow over you ,immersing you in their ambient sound. With the high quality of their last offering, they seem to have taken the attitude if it ain't broke, no need for a radical fix, just a few tweaks here and there. It is their second strong album on the trot.

By Red on Black TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 14 May 2012
Format: Audio CD
How do you follow an album which was a dreamy pop masterwork that single handidly made a lush electronic form of shoegaze music the height of fashion and left a trail of broken hearts from New York to Newquay? It also saw young men (and rather aged males) fall hopelessly in love with the dulcet dones of the sultry chanteuse Victoria Legrand and give fulsome admiration to the musical wonders conjured by Alex Scally from his pole position in Beach House. 2010's opus "Teen Dream" was a wonder indeed and from the minute Legrand crushed you with longing regret of "Walk in the park" or had you singing at the top of your voice to the wonderful distortion of "Norway" you knew you had encountered something very special.

In terms of the Baltimore duo's latest offering its safe to say that if you loved "Teen Dream" the romance is about to be rekindled. There is certainly progression on "Bloom" which makes it a cleaner more pure pop form of music but at the same time this album is certainly the first cousin of "TD" and if you had put the lovely opener "Myth" as the eleventh track on that album frankly no one would notice the joins. It is a scintillating pop song full of huge Legrand choruses and Scally instrumentation which concludes with a huge finale of bells, guitars synths, kitchen sinks et al. Next up is "Wild" a song which your reviewer has become so smitten with it is with a sense of regret that the third track comes on. It is a pounding shimmering pop song with a superb vocal and imbued with that latent regret that the sweet raspy voice of Legrand should seek a patent to protect. Equal wonders follow not least the lifting bliss of "Lazuli" (appropriately a stone, revered for its intense blue radiance) where music pundits have noticed the Liz Frazier dimensions of Legrand's huge vocal.

Absolutely stunning! It was the first Beach House album I've listened to and I was simply bewitched by its depth and beauty! Some absolutely outstanding songs! Now when this album led me to 'Teen Dream' I can understand the comments regarding the lack of novelty but to be perfectly honest, I believe that ''In Bloom' is definitely a step forward because it is slightly darker, deeper and a tiny bit more mature... I absolutely LOOOOOOOOOOVE IT!
