    They translate desolation into richly searching music, putting familiar sounds through their distinctive filter: fluttering G-funk (3am), homages to Walk on the Wild Side (Summer Girl) and Joni Mitchell at her most seething (Man from the Magazine, an acoustic riposte to a leering journalist), and Led Zep bounce (Up From a Dream).

    Women In Music Part III just hits it from top to bottom. It is the album in which Haim at last fulfil their potential, a summery California pop rock treat in which the blissful ambience is backed up with emotional grit and substance.

    Sprawling and intimate, breezy and affecting, Women in Music Pt. III is a low-key triumph.

    We’re graced with upbeat music, the antidote for the negativity that surrounds us. They speak out and speak up about the wrongs that surround them, like the patriarchal limitations placed on them ('Man In The Magazine'), but also explore the joy of the everyday ('Hallelujah').

    Women in Music Pt. III is by no means perfect, but its strengths assuredly outweigh the weaknesses. Haim feel completely in the moment here, and are working stronger than ever as a unit.

    This new album shows that they are capable of not only subverting the expectations of the audience, but subverting expectations of the music world in general.

    HAIM on record comes across best when not overly fussed up or cluttered over and the many standouts on Women in Music Pt. III prove that point repeatedly. The remainder of it could do with some trimming of the fat and taking it easy on the condiments.

HAIM encontra nos percalços da vida um combustível para a criação do que é o melhor registro do trio. Letras intensas, acordes impecáveis e vocais únicos. Aliás, HAIM é único. Ninguém faz música como essas meninas. De longe um dos melhores álbuns do ano! Expand

Going back to their older records you can clearly hear a sense of evolution within both their songwriting and production.

    Just proof that females do rock better than the guys. Brilliant album, they've set the bar in the stars.

    It's their best album! Lyrics, production and vocals are on point. It was totally worth the wait.

    Light and mature at the same time. WIMP III comes with a messier sound but with somehow much clearer messages. I love my sisters!

WIMPIII is layered, offering an eclectic mix of tracks that span over multiple genres that ALWAYS hit. Production here has never been better thanks to Danielle taking the producer role here as seriously as she ever has. HAIM has always been a small-crew, and they keep that up here, it’s just as well of an oiled machine as they’ve been yet. Expand
