He was already a published author on various matters of pop culture.

Iron Yuppie just threw down the gauntlet, GAF. What are you going to do now?

He's already admitted that the comparison was not warranted. We are at peace. But GAF, that avatar is really scaring me.

Ha, my bad. Joakim Noah is a scary guy, though.

Let's talk about how the guitar solo in "Enchanted" sounds like 2000s era The Edge.

So it's the same four notes played over and over again?

Impy makes his inaugural post in my Taylor Swift thread!

I was waiting for the day.

Yes, that is what it is. Simple structure. But it's an effective solo.

If it's like Edge in the 2000s, it's probably not an effective solo.

Singing in a band with the guitar player from The Cult, and writing books about The New York Dolls and James Dean (that were actually published).

Let's talk about the string assault at the start of "Haunted"

Seconded.

It's a good album, really. About three songs too long, and far too ballad-heavy near the end, but her stronger vocal presence and heightened personality, as well as the more sophisticated lyrics, compensate for this. I do prefer Fearless, I know that much. I'm not sure I will want to hear Speak Now in full again for a long time.

Best tracks:

Speak Now
Mean
Story of Us
Enchanted
Innocent

Nice choice. Round About Midnight is, predictably, a tremendous night record.

I like your short list. Although if we're talking the uptempo songs that sound like they're destined for big radio play, I prefer both Sparks Fly (penned when she was 17) and Better Than Revenge to The Story Of Us. That's just me of course. I'll be shocked if The Story Of Us isn't a single at some point, though.

I would have slapped you if you hadn't listed Enchanted. Best song of her career so far. Song of the year. Good lord.

If the singles aren't
Mine
Mean
Enchanted
Speak Now
and possibly if she's trying to fully recreate Fearless, Never Grow Up, but better option Story Of Us

then I don't know what she's thinking.
