instead of knocking this person
people should be getting down on their knees bowing to her

she proves that people will still pay for music they like,
no, it really does not want to be free or uploaded to your iTunes without you choosing it.

Taylor Swift is the least offensive pop artist out there IMO At least she doesn't act like a tart and promote hip-hop culture cliches. Besides that I respect the fact that Taylor actually plays an instrument and is largely the main composer of her music. Most other pop acts are just glorified karaoke singers who have to purchase their music from a team of professional writers and beat makers. Pathetic!

Heard this album over the weekend.

While I think Red had stronger songs, I thought this album went together much better. The sequencing on Red drives me crazy - fast, slow, fast slow through the middle, for example - and I thought it could lose a few tracks, specifically the duets. Make those changes and I think Red is a great album instead of very good.

With 1989, take away Bad Blood and Wildest Dreams, and I'm pretty much liking the rest, although the Stay song could be removed as well for redundancy purposes. Those first four tracks are killer.

And thus ends my cameo for this thread.

Well, I was listening to the album and reading the credits and I could swear that the bad-old Max Martin wrote and composed 90% of that $#!|.
I'm not sure if in this 1989 this bland blonde is as different from all those Rhianna's, Beyonce's, Katy Perry's and all that trash that pays for someone else to write songs for them which have one or two lines/words written by the now-new-owners and giving them the right to appear in the first place in the credits as if they composed it themselves.

Funny how being forced to hear Shake it Off 758 times in a week makes you come to love it.

The vinyl/record edition just came out. So typically in the facebook group vinyl community I post in the few people that like her and posted pics of their copies were greeted to typical misogynistic comments by creepy old record collectors who think 1970's ZZ Top and Styx were the last great rock groups and believe nothing good was made after 1980. It is funny and sad.

So I actually bought this album recently. Mostly cos a cute girl told me to, but also I do think she's written a lot of great pop songs.

Bit shit that the two best tracks (You Are in Love and New Romantics) are not on the album proper. I loved Clean (helped a lot having Imogen Heap on board) as well as How You Get the Girl, Shake it Off, Wildest Dreams, This Love.

Out of the Woods is one of the worst songs I have ever heard. The chorus is abysmal.
