Today’s pop music is a lot of beat and very few good lyrics and feelings behind the word. Taylor Swift brings the country theory of “Three chords and the truth” to her venture into pop music. There is something about Taylor’s music that is missing from the pop world, which is universality. Everyone no matter who you are can relate in some way to her music.
People were worried about her foray into pop music, but this album proves they had no need. In Rolling Stone‘s review, they write, “Deeply weird, feverishly emotional, wildly enthusiastic, 1989 sounds exactly like Taylor Swift, even when it sounds like nothing she’s ever tried before. And yes, she takes it to extremes. Are you surprised? This is Taylor Swift, remember? Extremes are where she starts out.”
Taylor took the past two years to write this album and you can tell she is at a very different place in her life than she was in 2012. She has been involved with fewer people, moved to NYC, and has stopped caring (as much) what other people think about her. All of these are evident on 1989.
Taylor has never stopped being Taylor and her fans are among the most loyal in the world. When the album leaked earlier in the weekend, Swifties world wide refused to listen and took to social media to speak their minds about the leak. Listen and enjoy.
