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.

MarkoP, Wednesday, 23 August 2017 20:31 (one year ago) Permalink

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.

now available on ~all the streaming services

i gave it one listen and can't say i'm particularly eager to give it more. "delicate" and "new year's day" are really nice but i might just end up cherrypicking those two and a couple others. like i mocked "gorgeous" when it came out but it is honestly a stronger cut than much of what is on here lol.

dyl, Friday, 1 December 2017 15:38 (ten months ago) Permalink

Yeah I listened to the album the first time last night and had a pretty similar reaction though I'll give it another try.

"New Year's Day" is interesting to me (as well as great) because it doesn't really sound like a throwback Taylor song - it sounds like Paramore's "Tell Me How" more than any prior Taylor for me actually. It's like it takes some of the disconnected choppiness that is a collateral component of her pop move and applies it to more confessional balladry territory so you get this song that feels really... impressionistic?

I can imagine Taylor, if she crawls out of her current hole, moving more into this territory rather than necessarily back to the rigorous craft of her earlier work.

"tell me how" immediately came to mind for me

Christ the album isn't even Top 10 as of tonight in the UK, only 3 weeks after release. I guess a single that they can take off the album becoming a massive hit is the only thing to save it.

Tim F, Friday, 1 December 2017 23:27 (ten months ago) Permalink

on this side of the pond "...ready for it?" is close to fizzling out and "end game" is starting to take off. i think "delicate" could also do well but who knows, wishful thinking on my part certainly.

If "End Game" isn't hammered by radio incessantly over the next few months i'd be...very surprised! I'd also bet on "Don't Blame Me" becoming a single given its Ragin Binman aesthetics.

I'm basically at the point with this where I've made a playlist of Dancing With Our Hands Tied - Delicate - Getaway Car - Dress - Call It What You Want - New Year's Day and am pretending the album is an EP.

monotony, Saturday, 2 December 2017 03:18 (ten months ago) Permalink

Predictably pro forma at a radio station thing last night (not really her fault, tbf). But I was briefly standing by Taylor's mom, and wow, it was nuts to see her fans react to her like she was a superstar herself. Taking selfies, making tearful confessions, waving signs. Pretty adorable.

one month passes...

I listened to this a lot around the time it came out; let it rest a few months; and just came back to it this week. Wasn't sure how it would hit me, thought its appeal may have faded... but it sounded great! The beats, the production style (all those layered background vocalizations), the tunes... it was all fresh & exciting as when I first got into it. Even the weak lyrics in spots (the weakest I've heard from her, and this album's Achilles heel IMO) didn't bother me so much (at least in this first re-visit). Not sure how it will age over more time, but any doubts I had about this album being made to sound good in "late 2017 only" are def. gone.

(It also maybe helps to be a few months removed from the semiotic pileup surrounding a new T. Swift release; for those who had a hard time bracketing all that stuff – and I don’t blame you – you can now just enjoy the album for what it is. Notwithstanding, of course, that the “drama” is baked into half the the lyrics...)

I read the review of the show in the Times, and whatever I think of Swift it seems like such a generic conflation of every big pop diva arena show (which I generally like). A total lack of visual ambition. I mean, I saw Shakira like 10 years ago and even she had a giant snake. Maybe it's the same one.

Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 12 May 2018 13:23 (five months ago) Permalink

I used to kind of want to see her live, until I watched an “intimate” concert she performed for DirecTV or something, a few years back – it really quashed my interest.

i’m still stanning (morrisp), Saturday, 12 May 2018 13:27 (five months ago) Permalink

Also, as much as I like the last two albums, I wish she’d re-engage with the “mature, ’80s-tinged pop-rock” approach of (much of) Red... that was such a great direction.

Saw her in Foxboro last night with my 11 year-old daughter for her first concert. A bunch of songs I kind of wrote off on the CD—King of My Heart in particular—really came to life live. The lady can put on a show.
