@AndyShore The world anxiously awaited Justin Timberlake’s return to the music business. His acting career has yielded mixed reviews and we were ready for a new, genre breaking, Earth shattering album. While we didn’t get that, the 20/20 Experience was a great listen and “Mirrors” the best track off it. Everyone didn’t know they were waiting for Haim, but we’re all sure glad they’re here. They compete against the silky vocals of JT with their harmonic blend that only shared DNA can create.
@Andyshore Haim combines the old with the new for a sound that has the melodies and drums of an 80s song and electronic elements of a current pop hit. In a lot of ways, Haim reminds me of Chromeo. “Falling” is a track that I could have bouncing around my head for days. It’s fun, catchy and has some great guitar riffs … and those harmonies. Seriously. It’s not even fair. Gone are bands like the Staples Singers and The Jackson 5. Why did we stop having family bands? Vote for Haim and let’s bring that trend back.
@ZackTeibloom Bring family bands back? Bring sexy back! As soon as “Mirrors” came out, I e-mailed Andy to tell him to get ready for the new song he’d have on repeat for weeks. He didn’t buy in as heavily, saying it was no FutureSex/LoveSounds. I couldn’t disagree more. I loved every bit of this epic 8-minute anthem. Even the preposterously long “you are, you are, the love of my life” refrain. I eat it up. I put this song on an “epic” driving song mix, I run to it, I can get down to it while sitting at my desk. Nine months later, it’s still a “play on repeat” song for me. I love the whole HAIM album more, but this song just does it for me.
