℗ 2020 Taylor Swift
I did not care for Lover at all, but I was completely blown away by this album! This album feels more mature and inviting with thought provoking lyrics and beautiful music. Maybe she should leave Pop behind!
I know, some people say “She doesn’t know how to write songs” but if you listen to betty, you will find that she tells a story in every single one. This album is calming yet sad, chill but fun, and everything that Taylor is. She put her love into this album for people to listen to during quarantine. She put this whole thing together in only 10 or 9 months. Just for people to listen to, just to make them less bored. This album does not deserve all the bad reviews it gets. That’s your opinion, but Taylor worked hard just to make her fans happy. So the haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate and the swifties gonna shake shake shake shake shake 😊 love ya Taylor!
I love this album so much, I wasn’t much of a fan after she wrote lover, but this made me love her music again. It’s that good, cardigan is my favorite, it reminds me of some characters from my book and anime, and that touched my heart.
I am a Taylor Swift fan and when the album first came out I wasn’t really into it but it’s a amazing album! My favorite songs on this album are August and cardigan! ♡︎𝕂𝕖𝕖𝕡 𝕦𝕡 𝕥𝕙𝕖 𝕒𝕞𝕒𝕫𝕚𝕟𝕘 𝕨𝕠𝕣𝕜 𝕋𝕒𝕪𝕝𝕠𝕣!♡︎ 𝕔𝕒𝕟’𝕥 𝕨𝕒𝕚𝕥 𝕗𝕠𝕣 𝕞𝕒𝕟𝕪 𝕞𝕠𝕣𝕖 𝕒𝕞𝕫𝕚𝕟𝕘 𝕒𝕝𝕓𝕦𝕞𝕤𓆉
With the rising popularity of alternative, Taylor Swift decided to change brands for the millionth time. However, titling your music with lowercase letters only and making slower tunes doesn’t make something alternative, and it certainly doesn’t make it listenable. What I hear in this album is a mainstream, watered-down, sloppy attempt at alternative and it is not entertaining in any way. The lyrics are neither profound nor deep- they’re just as generic and bland as her pop tunes’ lyrics. Everything is vague and about love, which is quite the opposite of what a real alternative song’s lyrics are supposed to be- thought-provoking and real. The only thing that made her pop music bearable- the beats and tunes- are now gone. Alternative tunes aren’t supposed to be bland and boring, they’re supposed to be reinvented- a deviation from the norm. Taylor Swift completely missed this and instead made what was essentially a failed take on mainstream-music-washed lo-fi. Her very mainstream pop singing style further reminds you that you are listening to a failed conversion of pop to alternative. Taylor Swift tried to jump on the alternative bandwagon but missed and landed in the dirt.
I never really had an opinion of her but I knew the words to the songs that were overplayed on pop radio. But this album, I've devoured it forward and backwards a few times. I absolutly love it. It's soft and deep. Soulful and real. Honestly, this album is right up there with Fiona Apple. It tugs at your emotions while also gently petting your heart like you would pet a cozy cat.
I love this album! I listen to it all the time and it makes me really happy. I really like anger songs and songs that tell story kind of like her reputation album but this is incredible. The one thing I would change is that I am 12 and I am not allowed to listen to her songs that have bad words in them so I would change it in being a clean album. But I love it. 🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰
I love all the songs, but 1. If you didn’t team up with Bon Iver I would have given this a 5 star rating. The next time you do a song with an artist from the alternative group do one with Twenty One Pilots, Halsey, Imagine Dragons, Walk The Moon, Neon Trees etc!
I don't care what anyone thinks, this was bad. Same boring tune in all the songs, meaningless unrelatable lyrics, and nothing innovative. Taylor should focus on what she does best and do it well.
At first listen I didn’t like this album. I must have been in a funk. Also i listened to the album out of order so maybe that has something to do with it. But it has so many beautiful songs. As always, TS has beautiful intricate lyrics but also beautiful sounds to this one. I can listen over and over again. It is soothing. And I REALLY appreciate that she let us have the option of a clean album. Love that!
Never before have I listened to an album for the first time and loved every single track. Well I have now! Brilliant. Moving. Sultry. Deep. Loving. Inspiring. Wishful... Simply a roller coaster of emotions. Thank you, thank you and thank you...
First of all this isn’t, in any way, lo-fi. Secondly yes it’s different from her pop but it just sounds like her country. It isn’t bad. But it definitely isn’t as “different and unique” as everyone is saying. Feels like going backwards. BUT if she is happy with it than good for her. Be yourself, always.
This sounds like all the songs are exactly the same except different lyrics and slight shift in instruments changing chords. Sounds almost like she reverted back to her early country song days which to me all sounded the same too. I’m a fan of her last three albums but not this. Sorry I can’t get behind slow sounding music. Not my jam.
I bought several of her CDs from her website (all 8 editions) plus I bought some single songs here on iTunes for loved ones. (Thank you for the gift a song/abum option). I also got the clean version for my 10 yr old niece. This is the music we needed to heal our souls during the pandemic. It's The 1 good thing to come out of this mess. Soothing instrumentals with magical vocals. It's like listening to the Fae singing their songs of folklore through the ages. Thank you, Taylor Swift! Now I'm off to find a misty cool forest to dance in. I love you to the Moon and to Saturn. ~Lisa
I was never much a TSwift fan, except for occasionally liking her catchy songs like “Trouble”. But THEN!!! My sister told me to check out Miss Americana on Netflix, and I nonchalantly agreed to, not knowing what it’d be about at all!!! I’ve fallen in LOVE with all things Taylor Swift ever since!!!!!!!!!! 🤗🤗🤗🥰🥰🥰 Lol, fr fr- I actually feel sorry for anyone who rated this 1 or 2 (or even 3 or 4! 😂) out of 5 honestly bc they don’t appreciate good music and don’t have much an understanding of the music-making process!!!
