I personally think TS 10 will be in the same place lyrically and sonically. The anti Taylor critics will start coming around and become more accepting of her. People just don’t like commercial music, especially from a person like Taylor.
Anyways, in personal news. I just got vaccinated for Covid last night and will be recovering from it (I feel terrible). And I’m going back into hiatus for a little while. I get the next few weeks off, gonna unwind. Hasta luego amgias.December 14, 2020 at 2:26 pm #1203920103
…..I like evermore better than folklore. 😐
The songs are more singable and more relatable and less about Taylor and more about her new musical universe she’s created.
No Kanye, Label drama, just Olive Garden and I’m ok with that.December 14, 2020 at 9:08 am #1203919098
Y’all care too much about review scores.December 13, 2020 at 2:03 pm #1203917620
Honey, Taylor Swift better thank her lucky stars that Adele has NOT released.
Taylor has released 4 albums since Adele released not to mention Taylor went on hiatus for a year.
While a blockbuster Adele has taken too long to be compared to Taylor anymore. One has 3 albums of the same genre and the other has 9 ranging from country to pop to rock.
Adele while amazing, lacks variation.
I know this must hurt you Gucci after all these years (legit has been 7 years) Taylor Swift is more relevant than she was then and is now reaching the upper echelon of music history.December 13, 2020 at 11:15 am #1203916956
The Rolling Stone singled out “Marjorie” as one of Taylor’s best songs. Looks like #13 is gonna be the standout of the album.December 12, 2020 at 1:37 pm #1203915073
I think evermore is gonna perk a lot of voters to swing her way for folklore. They’re getting similar reviews and what not.
If folklore loses evermore will be waiting for next year. If she wins evermore will be lucky to be nominated.
At this point it’s turning into “when” and not “if” Taylor wins a 3rd time. Especially if she’s popping out critically acclaimed albums every five or six months.December 12, 2020 at 12:53 pm #1203914954
I really don’t think people should spend more of their money when a lot of people are not financially secure right now. So this is irresponsible to say.
It doesn’t matter how many units the album sells it. The most important thing is that her fans enjoy it.
I have no idea why people still think sales matter anymore. Almost everyone I know has Spotify or Apple Music at this point. I only see people who buy are buying vinyl records.
Everyone at this point knows the power of Taylor Swift. I find it idiotic that people buy more copies than the need to boost her sales, she’s a millionaire and doesn’t need you to spend 100$ on 5 copies of her album.December 12, 2020 at 5:34 am #1203914003
Yeah, she’s never coming back to songs like ME wanegbt lwymmd.
However I don’t think she’s left pop forever. Folklore and evermore both have some pop elements.
I think she’ll release a mature,chill or dream pop album in the future.(like delicate,wildest streams,maathbp,blank space,Cornelia street,getaway car)
We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, shouldn’t be put in the same category as the other two,
1) got great reviews and ended up year end lists.
2) the production values were amazing.
3) was written by a 21 or 22 year old girl.
4) was a jam.
What I’m saying is there’s never going to be a LOUD Taylor Swift pop song. They’ll be fast breathy pop songs. I think for the next few albums we’re going to get experimental sounds. The days of her going for commercial success and “writing for a stadium” are done. Considering she’s not going to tour until whatever is going on with her mother is over.December 12, 2020 at 5:06 am #1203913977
Not much like folklore, evermore is a grower. I do believe she’s over saturated herself here which is why this will be her last surprise from the forest.
I feel like with her last two albums she’s found her Beyoncé avenue but on steroids. She’s going for acclaim but unlike Beyoncé, she has one thing working against her, her name. The really picky critics would never give the singer of ME and Look what you made me do a perfect or damn near perfect review.
Now, the thing they’re forcing themselves to look at, Taylor Swift has made two stellar albums made within 4 months each that will go down as her best albums.
Adele takes half decades, Beyoncé has been doing side projects like crazy for a few years, Rihanna is taking over other industries, and Gaga well she went back to stale Gaga that no one really likes other than her monsters from 2012.
You have to give her props, Taylor has raised the bar to two surprise albums that have been well received, and written at a lightning pace. I’ve said it before, she’s the Bob Dylan of our times even Dolly agrees Taylor Swift is the best female songwriter.
I think evermore has bumped her chances at AotY and especially SotY up exponentially.
My favorites are
Long Story Short
No Body, No Crime
Tolerate It (the one most personal to me)
I fell like folklore was the moody emo sister to evermore which is more optimistic and full of more upbeat empowering colorful songs.
folklore just came out first and established this “Taylor Swift ran into the forest and never came back” narrative. She’s never going back to pop if she does it will only be songs like Delicate or The Archer.
People forget, Lover got her best reviews at the time.December 11, 2020 at 5:10 am #1203911335
I like it, it’s just more folklore. Which she said it was going to be. folklore was the real surprise which is why I think everyone is going over this with a magnifying glass.
Is it my favorite album of hers? No.
Is it one of her best? Yes.
I Bon Iver on evermore was extremely grating and out of place. Probably shouldn’t have had that feature.
Gold Rush, Tolerate It, and No Body, No Crime are my favorites.
I would give it a 9/10.
It’s not better than folklore or RED though.
I do believe her next album is not going to be the same, but she’s not going to make top 40 synth pop anymore. She off into that Beyoncé territory now.
