    I think folklore has a unique replayability, all modern commercial music kinda lacks the authentic factor and flow between tracks, it is not about hitting the catchy hooks, it is about indulging the listener in a harmonious 16 chapter melody story telling . This is her magnum opus, she is very mature in her lyrics, her expression, her outros, her tone.

    Cardigan is the pinnacle of songwriting, a masterpiece.

    I agree no-one of her generation could pull this type of project, even some reviewers noted. As written in the 5/5 review of Guardian:

    Folklore proves that she can thrive away from the noise: if you interpret “classmates” as pop peers, Swift is no longer competing.

    I really like Folklore, but I feel it’s a tad overproduced for what it is. I can see the reason she chose to include each productional choice, but because they all serve to create one single mood, in the aggregate the song feels a bit too on the nose.

    Her songs have always been bombastic, which I admire and fit perfectly for power ballads or pop rock songs. That’s why I hope to see her go Speak Now route.

    Hopefully she’s got something up her sleeve for later this year, when final voting starts.

    While folklore’s current hype and success might be enough for her to secure some key nominations (and even so, it’s still quite a big question mark whether cardigan & exile will get nominated), I fear the album will be old news by December, when voting begins.

    And considering how the massive campaigns of her competitors and how inactive she’s been since its release (no interviews, only 1 performance), I feel like she’ll just let this album play out and will see how far it can go on its own, for which she might have her reasons, but in terms of Grammy recognition, it could end up with her going home empty-handed, which would be such a shame for an album like this.

    honey. It’s October. People said the album would be old news after release week. Folklore is a successful era with longevity. I see it passing the double platinum mark before the year ends, and scoring at least two more weeks on top. Tay is fine.

    Get real! Mama did NOT “serve the album of the pandemic.” Let’s stop being delusional.

    Taylor is a smart girl, she is not using all her tricks at once. The others need wild promo to be considered. Imagine if she released a new video in August as fans were asking, it is October and Folklore made it to Top of BB200 and her only promo so far is Betty in ACMS.

    I just checked what people said they would personally pick for their Grammy Ballot and after reading a lot, I thought it was interesting how the Taylor Swift predictions were all over the place in the fact that people couldn’t pick one song to put. I saw a couple Augusts’ and Exile’s and lots of her other songs on the album. I think it just goes to show how great of an album this is because there isn’t just one standout because the standout is pretty much the whole album. Really hoping for lots more success for her this year!!!

    IMO it’s actually pretty smart of her to not do much during the first round of voting because she’ll make the top 20 in all three GF categories no matter what. If she starts campaigning aggressively too early on, she’ll be seen as too much of a threat and will be taken out of AOTY

    I’m following on the main thread and idk what to think. After hours doesn’t scream pop to me like at all. I mean Folklore isn’t 100% pop either but Taylor is mostly a pop artist. Voters might not vote for him just because they expect him to be in R&B. The real question is if Taylor pulls of the BPVA win, can Abel win AOTY? It’s too much.

    why?

    The Weeknd is submitting to Pop Vocal. I think she still has a good chance to win but it’s just not as easy as we thought anymore.

    This Year is insane now. Also the fact that the main thread has over 1000 posts and the moderators probably haven’t realized yet or just don’t care
