Reviewing 1989. (The album, not the year)

 

I know it’s a little late, but I’ll be reviewing T.Swift’s new pop-online album. First off, I wanted to say how I was initially concerned that I wouldn’t like the album, but I really do like it. It’s well-written and very catchy. A+ Miss Swift. Can I just say how yesterday at chapter, our president asked who had this album. I proudly raised my hand: it’s that good.

Tracklist for 1989:

Welcome to New York. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this song!!! And not to mention, it came out the day I found out I was accepted to go to NYC this summer. I call that fate. It’s so catchy and peppy. It’s making so excited to be in the city this summer. And it’s the official NY tourism song, insane right? Yes, “New York has been waiting for me.” Love this song.

Blank Space. Easily one of my favorite songs off the album. It’s pure perfection and I love it! “It’s gonna be forever or worth the pain. I got a blank space baby and I’ll write your name.” I love it. PERECTION in terms of a song.

Style. So peppy and upbeat, it makes me want to dance! 🙂 Ugh, I’m waiting for a dance to it on DWTS!

Out of the Woods. The iTunes preview doesn’t do this song any justice. It’s great. And is it really about HARRY STYLES??? Can someone confirm? As a journalist, I want to know the truth! (Haha, lol.)

All You Had to do Was Stay. Amazing. Love it. So great. 

I Wish you Would. LOVE LOVE. Great song. So peppy.

Bad Blood. Oh wow, this is so catchy. More importantly, who is Taylor feuding with??

Wildest Dreams. At first, I didn’t like it. But it’s growing on me as a sweet ballad.

How You Get the Girl. I LOVE THIS SONG. Hands down, one of the best off the album. It’s very dance-y and I love it. It’s even my alarm. 

This Love. Not bad, a sweet ballad.Screen Shot 2014-11-06 at 4.49.14 PM

I Know Places. Kinda haunted. (haha, I just realized that pun. Oh wow, that was not intended.) But, really good.

Clean. The one song I’m not crazy about. 

No matter my tastes, I think we can all agree that Taylor did a great job on this album, and as Brad Paisley said, “New York’s gain is Nashville’s loss.”

And speaking of music, One Direction just released a new track off their soon-to-be-released album, called “Ready to Run.” I love it because it’s more than their traditional past songs that are very dance-y. It’s a beautiful ballad, and I really like the mature sound. Great job, One Direction, great job. It’s mature, well-written and catchy. I love it. People are comparing it to Steal My Girl: but I don’t see that. (Partly because I wasn’t a fan of the previous single, but Ready to Run: it’s good.)
