Days Are Gone is the debut album from Californian sisters Este, Danielle and Alana Haim, joined by drummer Dash Hutton. The album showcases the girls' rocky style and 80s influences to great effect, demonstrated by hit singles such as "Don't Save Me" and "Falling".
Top Customer Reviews
The sister-act rock band Haim are from the sunny LA, and you can almost feel the sunshine seeping through the album. The songs are sparkling, danceable and infectious, and this is a classic Haim sound. Yes, it is their first studio album, but Haim have been cultivating their sound for over fifteen years, and [some think] they are much better live than recorded. There are debates around the fact that Este, Danielle and Alana Haim let the producers rub the edges off their talent, and I agree. If you saw them on Jools Holland (or any other life performance) you can tell some of the momentous live energy has been lost in production of "Days Are Gone". But it does not make the album any less enjoyable and easy-listening.
Can't stop playing this CD. I recognise the comments that this CD is studio produced - but what do you expect? Studio sound is always different. One day there will be a Haim "live" album, be patient. Although personally, I can't wait.
In the meantime, the studio production brings out to the full the depth of the tracks. Not only the singles, but almost all the tracks are very strong. As with any album from a successful singles band you have to listen to the rest with a little more care.
My faith in contemporary music restored, thanks girls.
You did not say you will save me but you did save me.
Now, where is Haim's 2014 European tour website ... ?
Are the songs good? No doubt they certainly are (hence the 3 stars), but they struggle to make an impression under the weight of programmed beats, samples and keyboard hooks that simply neuter their rock appeal and turn them into almost joyless covers, unrecognisable from their tight funky live counterparts. You would certainly never know that Haim are predominantly a guitar band from listening to this.
Trust me, I really like this band (particularly the bass player whose face emotes every note she plays, making her hugely sexy) but the album is an opportunity missed as far as I am concerned. They had the chance to make a cutting edge rock album, which I think could have catapulted them to massive things, but this record is not that. I have a feeling that classic rock is where the girls hearts lie and that someone in their management or record company told them that a straight rock record would be too "old school" for today's market.
I think anyone buying this on the back of a gig or live show will feel the same and, conversely, anyone loving this record first and going to see them live will probably be equally surprised and disappointed because they won't get what they are expecting either.Read more ›
