Folklore for me, but Evermore is also great.
ugh. I honestly can’t decide. Both albums are incredible. 😭 However, evermore is much more raw, the production on these songs are career best, vocally this is her best album, it’s more experimental than folklore.

non fan perspective:
evermore felt more consistently good but folklore had higher highs. so i’m not sureDecember 27, 2020 at 2:13 pm #1203948225
I put evermore. Could just be recency bias.

I agree with this. There isn’t a mirrorball or epiphany or hoax on evermore but there also isn’t an august or a betty.

Evermore is great, but, imo, folklore is betterDecember 27, 2020 at 3:27 pm #1203948380
Folklore has fewer skips for me so I’d go with that, but both are superbDecember 27, 2020 at 3:30 pm #1203948388
Folklore is better, but Evermore is just as good.December 27, 2020 at 3:37 pm #1203948396
Folklore had more songs I like. Willow is probably the best song out of the two albums thoughDecember 27, 2020 at 3:44 pm #1203948400

There are no skips on folklore, all songs go from “very good” (the 1, invisible string, epiphany) to excellent (exile, cardigan, my tears ricochet, hoax) to great (TIMT, august, mirrorball, seven). All the ones i didnt mentioned are also excellent.
While evermore has highs as great as folklore (tolerate it, evermore) it also has lows (“ok” songs like gold rush or dorothea), and more songs that are just very good as opposed to excellent or great.December 27, 2020 at 4:00 pm #1203948417
Folklore is more “baity” and accessible for critics. It’s the “better pick” in terms of Grammys and other award shows. It’s a lot more cohesive and “put together”. Everything just flows.
Evermore, to me at least, is something she made primarily for her fans. It’s definitely not as cohesive, more upbeat, radio friendly, and “raw”.December 27, 2020 at 5:01 pm #1203948498
I think Folklore takes the cake here. It has songs that are just TOO incredible to top like mirrorball, august, and seven, especially when you factor in that killer stretch from exile to illicit affairs.
Evermore has songs that are pretty much just as good, like champagne problems, tolerate it, gold rush, and evermore, but they seem to be spaced out between just “good” songs, like coney island, dorothea, willow, etc.
To me, Evermore is more accessible and musically diverse, while Folklore reveals itself more with every listen in its lyrical complexity and superb tracklisting.Not now
