CRITIC REVIEWS

HipHopDX

MGK’s latest album, bloom, finds him largely shedding the ways of his youth in favor of thoughtful musings over sophisticated production.

XXL

The rapper finds his footing with bloom, an album that showcases his varied skill set and taps into the dimension of the artist he has the tools to become.

Alternative Press

Bloom feels less like the work of a persona than an authentic attempt at sorting out a sometimes messy life—far from perfect, yet perfectly compelling.

AllMusic

While Bloom isn't as thrilling as his debut Lace Up, fans of 2015's General Admission will appreciate the familiar blend of pop-savvy rap and the occasional guitar riff.

This album's so commercialized and lacks of actual unique material, it somehow fails at even being what it wants to be - a generic pop rap record made by an equally generic rapper. Bloom is the most embarrassing result of quantity over quality.

bloom is a fun and surprisingly rocking album full of nice trap flavored radio rap and pop rock tunes. Kelly's flows and lyrics are solid, and though there are a couple duds this album is solid.

Favorite tracks: The Gunner, Go For Broke, Rehab, Let You Go, 27

Least Favorites: Can't Walk, Trap Paris

With a new sound, Kells is surprising us with a new style which is not as corny as it was in some parts of "General Admission", but it's not as good as some parts of the previous album. His singing part wasn't the best and the auto-tune was used in the wrong way too. Despite these facts, he had some enjoyable songs and awesome collaborations with artists like Quavo, Ty Dolla $ign, James Arthur, Hailee and Camila Cabello.
