There's a certain sentimental value to this album for me, so hopefully you don't mind the personal bias. But for what feels like a long while, this album has been a solid ground for me while a lot of my own life has gone all over the place, through lows and highs. A strong therapeutic connection that I can't -- nor want to -- get rid of at this point. It means a lot to me.
Favorite track: On the Sea.
Bloom is the fourth full-length album by Baltimore-based Beach House. Like their previous releases (Beach House in 2006, Devotion in 2008, Teen Dream in 2010), it further develops their distinctive sound yet stands apart as a new piece of work. Bloom is meant to be experienced as an ALBUM, a singular, unified vision of the world. Though not stripped down, the many layers of Bloom are uncomplicated and meticulously constructed to ensure there is no waste. Bloom was recorded in 2011 at Sonic Ranch Studios in Tornillo, TX and mixed at Electric Lady in NYC. The band co-produced the record with Chris Coady.
This is the type of album where your favorite track changes every other day because it's just that good and if anyone told me any song was their favorite, every option feels like a right answer. DudeHowEvenTho
Resonance. The track we all know and love. Introduced me to my favorite genre of music. Thank you, Randy. Goffe taught me about synthwave through the most nostalgic piece of music to ever grace my ears. And for that, I'm forever in your debt. theslicingsword
