If it makes you feel better, my brother doesn't know how to illegally download, so I'm sure he bought it.

Come on, you know I don't steal music.

I'd give it a listen via some stream and if I liked it I'd buy, and if not, that would be that.

But the fact that I'm contemplating a listen of the whole album is a testament to your.....so many words to choose from......fervor.

If you like your lattes with an extra shot of Swift, Starbucks is selling the CD as well.

All I can say is that I can't wait for Avril Lavigne's next album.

Early word from retail is that Taylor Swift’s Speak Now (Big Machine) is “huge” and “exploding,” with some initial projections in the 800-900k range—downright stunning for this day and age. On top of that, half of the iTunes Top 20 tracks are from the album. So how high can Speak Now go in week one? Won’t be long till we find out.
Kill 'em, Tay.

"Enchanted" is the song of the year.

Please don't be in love with someone else
Please don't have somebody waiting on you

PLEASE DON'T BE IN LOVE WITH SOMEONE ELSE
PLEASE DON'T HAVE SOMEBODY WAITING ON YOU


Meanwhile, the Rolling Stone review is a rave:

Speak Now by Taylor Swift | Rolling Stone Music | Music Reviews

Quote:
People like to fixate on Taylor Swift's youth, as if to say, yeah, she's pretty good for her age. But that just begs a question: Where are all the older people who are supposedly making better pop records than Taylor Swift? There aren't any.
Quote:
At this point, she's like the new Morrissey, except with even more eyeliner.

Alright, let's be reasonable here...Taylor Swift does not deserved to be mentioned in the same breath as Morrissey.

I am not going to question anyone's taste in pop music, but to compare a twenty-year-old child writing songs about her crushes to one of the most profound and eloquent lyricists in the history of popular music is completely unwarranted. Sorry, GAF, I just can't get behind that one.

I don't even understand where that comparison is coming from...


...I also didn't read the article so...

It to me is clearly a tongue-in-cheek comment. I thought it was funny, and decided to quote it. I'm sure Rob Sheffield knows it's a ridiculous comparison as much as any of us do.

Although, what was Morrissey doing when he was 20?

Taylor's got the jump on him!

Brooding, moping, and/or crying?
