Glitchy snakes and courtroom sketches. What a strange aesthetic this album cycle is bringing.

The fact that Markers left these borads just before all this started cannot be a coincidence imo.

At this point, I am going to be disappointed if Taylor's new stuff doesn't sound like Demdike Stare.

it's probably just going to be jewelry. there are gold chains with that pattern. and the song is called "timeless" which i'm sure some bullshit jewelry company uses as a slogan. maybe bulgari?

i'm most curious about how she's going to adapt to pop radio being allergic to women with distinctive voices. the 50 shades song felt like a test of the waters on that front.

Unless she decides to make more songs like Shake it Off and Bad Blood, because those were two of the biggest hits from her last album.

It can be hard to remember that she and Kendrick had a #1 hit, it just sort of disappeared. I still hear "Blank Space" and "Style" on the radio, but not "Bad Blood."

I was hoping her taking a break was to clear people's minds of all the annoying kanye/kim bullshit that nobody but the press and fanboys+girls gave a shit about. that way she could come back with something
a little fresh and removed.... instead the vibe is... "guys i am back with some zingers. remember Bad Blood? shit gonna get real snarky but in a slightly sad and ineffectual way"

I know she's done stuff like "Mean" in the past but I'm hoping Swifty's savvy enough not to make an entire album about the Perils of Celebrity. I don't need to hear her Yeezus.

I don't know that a reaction away from pop necessarily involves going back to country. There were a lot of styles she was exploring on Red in particular that seemed to really suit her - I think an album of fake rock (basically the space mapped out by "State of Grace" and "Holy Ground") would be a great look for her while still allowing her to "mature" in terms of tone, subject matter etc.

Tim F, Friday, 10 November 2017 21:16 (one week ago) Permalink

But if she does that, it probably will involve Dave Grohl, and noboby wants that.

"Shit that sounds like Ed Sheehan" could really mean anything but I assume you mean greyscale earnest soft-rock?

I was thinking more "Behind These Hazel Eyes" personally, though I could also see a Laurel Canyon detour happening.

New Year's Day is really good, better than anything on 1989 IMHO. She hasn't lost her ability for positioning herself at the end of things and looking back on them with tenderness. I can't think of any other songwriter who's able to bring such perspective and to be so articulate about things that have ended very recently or are even still happening.

There are several other great tracks here. I really like Delicate, Don't Blame Me, Dress, Getaway Car, King of my heart. The singles and pseudo-singles sound much better in the context of the album.

cpl593H, Friday, 10 November 2017 22:55 (one week ago) Permalink

i think this album is pretty awesome. if it was 12 songs instead of 16 it might be one of her three best records.

the songwriting is really strong throughout, i wish the production was more engaging but that feels like a bit of a minor complaint now

flappy bird, Saturday, 11 November 2017 01:14 (one week ago) Permalink

good tracks: Delicate, Getaway Car, Dress, New Year's Day. the emphasis on "de-li-cate" is a bit awkward though

a significant chunk of this feels like Bad Blood was the template which is really not a good thing. the production is generally bland. the I Did Something Bad bridge is especially odd?

Call It What You Want is almost good but I kept expecting a real chorus that never came and the title hook is really awkward rhythmically. the chorus feels more like it should be a pre-chorus or verse variation before the real thing when it happens the first time. King of My Heart suffers from its half-hearted cut-up post-chorus

Got a girl from the south side, got braids in her hair
First time I seen her walk by, man I 'bout fell off my chair
Had to get her number, it took me like six weeks
Now me and her go way back like Cadillac seats

Body like a back road, drivin' with my eyes closed
I know every curve like the back of my hand
Doin' 15 in a 30, I ain't in no hurry
I'mma take it slow just as fast as I can

The way she fit in them blue jeans, she don't need no belt
But I can turn them inside out, I don't need no help
Got hips like honey, so thick and so sweet
It ain't no curves like hers on them downtown streets

Body like a back road, drivin' with my eyes closed
I know every curve like the back of my hand
Doin' 15 in a 30, I ain't in no hurry
I'mma take it slow just as fast as I can

We're out here in the boondocks
With the breeze and the birds
Tangled up in the tall grass
With my lips on hers
On the highway to heaven
Headed south of her smile
Get there when we get there
Every inch is a mile

Body like a back road, drivin' with my eyes closed
I know every curve like the back of my hand
Doin' 15 in a 30, I ain't in no hurry
I'mma take it slow just as fast as I can

I'mma take it slow
Just as fast as I can
(Body like a back road)
(Drivin' with my eyes closed) Got braids in her hair
(I know every curve like the back of my hand)

Ann Powers--

https://www.npr.org/sections/therecord/2017/11/10/562360434/the-old-taylors-not-dead

...Too often, African-American music has been treated as delicious forbidden fruit that white performers have plucked to become more sensual. From Mae West in the 1920s to Miley Cyrus in the 2010s, white women performers especially have slipped into something dangerously close to blackface when they long to publicly loosen up. Swift does not go that far on Reputation — it's no Bangerz — but she has stepped over a previously self-imposed line.

I swear this isn't a shitposting - I actually really like End Game. And I fear I'm the only person who does so :( I like how it's a little melodramatic and there's some yearning going on, but it doesn't take itself too seriously (unlike look what you made me do, which, ugh) also the guest verses are nice

take the first three songs and "Look What You Made Me Do" off this and it's a pretty good pop album. Still not anywhere near the standard of 1989 or Red but not the disaster I was anticipating. The key change in "Getaway Car" is such a moment, I can't tell if it's shamelessly brilliant or just a step too far. I miss her lyrics being evocative rather than descriptive but some of the melodies are gorgeous.

Meanwhile Jeppo released another new single yesterday, it's the Kid Froopy situation all over again eh?!?!

I like Ann Powers' take on this album. I think Swift's made an album that she wanted to make, in sync with her tastes, and I'm happy for her. I don't know how much I love it yet but as ever I'll live in the album for a while before I settle on anything.

she's never put out an album this short but if the tracklist just ran like this i would put it above all of her albums except red & fearless. in its actual form i think i rate it next to speak now as her very good but ultimately flawed albums.

but i'm gonna listen to this way more than 1989 in reality bcuz i'll just listen to it the way i just outlined. it's kinda how i rate beyonce's 4 very high because i take out the 3 bad songs and tack on the much superior bonus tracks in my head.

yes not a patch on red or 1989. it's just not memorable at all and it seems weird to have made this move; it's like, moving intentionally into a kind of pop music that is rapidly losing relevance. wish she'd doubled down on her strengths. oh well I'm sure it'll be successful and she'll do another great thing at some point.
