Taylor's personality shines through, I think.

The song itself came out of a can, with a pop tab.

I saw that last night when I watched some of the Stand Up To Cancer telethon. I cried like a baby. Beautiful song, well done Taylor.

New song is out off Red. Definitely sounds like Taylor went shopping with Max for that big lead single; this fits in much more logically continuing out from Speak Now.

"Ronan" is still one of the best things she's ever done. Can't say enough about it. Perfect.

Not totally sold on "Begin Again" yet. It's pretty, and the chorus is nice, but it's nothing too memorable.

I'm also troubled by the lyrics in the bridge. Seems to be a bit of a fuck-up, syntactically.

And we walk down the block to my car and I almost brought him up
But you start to talk about the movies that your family watches every single Christmas
And I won't talk about that for the first time


I like the image of "the movies that your family watches every single Christmas" but to follow it up with "and I won't talk about that..." would mean that she's not going to talk about the Christmas movies. But, I'm sure what she means is that she won't talk about the ex-boyfriend. The sentence just comes off a bit strange to me.

"Ronan", though. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.

I hate myself for it, but every time I hear We Are Never Ever Ever Getting Back Together on the radio I feel extremely happy. Such a fun song, and she manages to fit her personality into there with all of the studio chatter. It's adorable.

And Ronan is awesome.

Red is going to be one of her best.

I can't help but like that song, too. I particularly love the video, she looks adorable in it and it's really cute (the people in the animal costumes crack me up).

Red the song is now out

Well, Taylor's not playing the neighbor next door anymore. Lyrically it's mostly stitched together with similes, so there's kind of a human-shaped empty chalk outline in the middle of the song where we're told what he's like and not what he is. If that makes sense.

Autotune! Maseratis! Synesthesia!

I really like this one. It's a propulsive track. Strong natural momentum. Kicks in in the chorus.

Faster than the wind, passionate as sin. Definitely more exciting than "Begin Again", which I'm still not very fond of.

Even newer song is out. Never Ever is my favorite of the new songs, so far, even though musically they all sound a lot like chasing existing trends (the new song's chorus follows the Party in the USA template). But I guess when you get it right, it's like Walter's blue meth: there's a calculated formula, but you can't help but admire the craftsmanship.

By the way guys:



That Fucking Cursive Font.

Cursive font sucks.

"Trouble" is hot. Don't really see the Party In The USA comparison.

Apparently the deluxe version of the album has 22 tracks. Can't wait to buy that shit.

Well, what people are calling the "bass drop" these days in the "trouble, trouble" part of the song seems to me like a slightly deeper version of the bassy synths when the chorus kicks in for Party.

I'll try and give it a fair shot when it leaks in a week or so, but I'm not really taken by anything yet.

Well, the word everyone's throwing around about that bass drop in "I Knew You Were Trouble" is dubstep.

Sure, whatever the fuck it is, it's awesome. One of the best pop choruses I've heard in a long time. Max Martin helped on this one, too, but the part before the TROUBLE TROUBLE TROUBLE TROUBLE drop is pure melodic Taylor word manipulation shit. The delivery is fucking fantastic.

Just has a bit of a different coating on top.

Other notes:

1. Apparently "Begin Again" is the closing track on the album proper. This puts the song in a different perspective in my mind, and I've already started to like it more. It's more powerful if one looks at it as a final statement of moving forward/it'll be ok after a a bunch of heavier breakup songs. Also, the album closing with the words "begin again" harkens back to Taylor's badass conscious choice to have "play it again" as the closing words of her debut album.

2. Along those same lines, I love that, even with these new styles she's playing around with, the lyrical touches feel familiar: Opening with "Once upon a time", like she did on "Forever And Always", but switching the rest of the tone completely. Instead of FUCK YOU!... it's I FUCKED UP!

3. I have more notes but I'm heading out now. I'll be back.
