A review written in a bit of a hurry cos I’m off on holiday later (I might have mentioned this?) It’s since been pointed out to me that Geoff Barrow of Portishead made the Shania comparison a couple of days ago, albeit in a far more disparaging manner. I plead ignorance.
To say I was confused when I first listened to this album a few weeks ago would be putting it mildly. I’d never heard any of Haim’s music but was aware that seemingly every music site in the UK was going crazy for them. I didn’t get it. I listened to the album many times to see if it would click and I still don’t get it. In fact, I’d say it’s more of a 2.5 album but what’s half a star between friends?
