I liked the album. It will get airplay and keep their fanbase growing. It’s slick, commercial and destined for success.

NME

For the converts there’s enough familiarity and boundary pushing to justify continuing to invest in this band ... But for the doubters and sceptics still on the fence, this album might prove even more enjoyable and surprising. Only a fool would deny themselves this collection of big pop bangers.

Being loyal to the indie code of conduct can be hard these days, but Blossoms are doing a pretty good job. A young super-group who are growing at a fast pace, their third album is glorious, ambitious and fulfilling, and it can take the band to new places and...loving spaces.

'Foolish Loving Spaces' is Bloody Good Fun, and we defy anyone to not dream of festival season when they listen to it. Bucket Hats at the ready, readers, Stockport has done it again

Euphoric, danceable and smile inducing, this strong work is one of the purest and sweetest albums in a while, and from a band at the top of their game.

Ogden’s declarations of love become a little breathless by the end, and Romance, Eh? leans too far into drippy, good-boy 70s music, but the band’s marvellously uncool overhaul is endearing and well turned.

My first album review of 2020.

Foolish Loving Spaces is the third studio album by Stockport's very own Blossoms. I have been a big fan of Blossoms since their debut self-titled album released back in 2016, including seeing them live. Since then the band has derived from the indie-rock sound they went for back then, with them more recently in their sophomore album, Cool Like You opting to incorporate more synths into the mix. Foolish Loving Spaces is no exception and has seen the band continue ... read more

There are some good tracks, decent tracks, and annoying tracks all spread out amongst one short record. So while it is pretty inconsistent, it has it's high moments and they are pretty enjoyable highs...

Very fun record. Blossoms have nailed a distinctive indie-pop sound at this point. Real standouts are 'If You Think This Is Real Life' and 'The Keeper.'

It is a simple puppy love album, nothing exciting or remarkable.
Same old Blossoms sound.....
That's said, there's no bad song here, so it would be an enjoyable listen.

Blossoms' third studio album, Foolsih Loving Spaces, is an indie pop record (of course it's Blossoms) with elements of Synth-Pop to create a danceable and fun record which ultimately is just generic for me. I don't think this is a bad record but it is not for me. It sounds too clean (idk how to explain it) and it's not something I will return to soon.
