The Haim girls really make Wrecking Ball their own in this cover, Haim-ifying it with some synth and  vocal weirdness. But since what I love about Wrecking Ball is the strength and RAW EMOTION, I’m not sure how actually effective Haim’s detached and ethereal take is. I’m impressed with Lead Haim’s ability to go so low during the “I will always love youuuuu,” and I think the cover really hits its stride around 1:40.  Overall, this is a good, but not my favorite, Haim song, while the original Wrecking Ball is my favorite Miley jam of all time. But watch and judge for yoself!
