This wasn't in the script. We were supposed to think they were cool. We were supposed to think that they updated the soft-rock of Fleetwood Mac providing a kooky West Coast edge and R & B stylings. We were not meant to think that they were even worse than Wilson Phillips.
But of course the thing is that Haim were always terrible - even when indie types were supposed to sorta secretly like them. They've just now just rubber stamped it and underlined it in triplicate. This limp slop of a record is so bad that the word 'vapid' in the dictionary is now accompanied by that picture of the band in their new matching sunglasses. At best it's inoffensive pop lite that you might like if you are a) 13 or b) want to see the return of Five Star.
Pitchfork and the Observer (amongst other publications) are completely comfortable with telling you this is ok to like. It's not, it's turgid rubbish that even a million dollars spunked on it can't save.
TEST: Try to remember at least one of the songs after it has played. You won't be able to.
