A fun indie rock album with a few great tunes. The album starts off great, but never quite reaches that high again. Good debut, and i’m exited to hear more from this band,
A very strong debut album from Stockport's finest. Great live sound and great songwriting, Blossoms are going places. Having seen them 7 times this year I've not got bored of their sound.

Blossoms looks like 80's British pop bands. This album is really unbelievable.

My favorite songs : Cut Me and I'll Bleed, Charlemagne and Blown Rose.
Generic white indie boy band present underwhelming, pound shop psych/indie-rock that is more likely to provoke a yawn out of you than any reaction that could be interpreted as joy or genuine enjoyment. Maybe their sophomore record will present something a bit more interesting but at this point, Blossoms are off my radar for the time being.
Catchy, melodic record. Instant favorite.
