I hope you’re all doing great and enjoying the start of the holidays (if they’ve started for you yet).
I am aware that I’m here with another Taylor Swift album review just around 4 months after the last one but IT’S NOT MY FAULT! I blame Taylor for releasing another amazing album so fast.
Lol the only thing I’m upset about is that I was planning to talk about Little Mix’s album ‘Confetti’ and I already wrote most of the post but then came evermore and I just … I couldn’t not. If you guys wouldn’t mind/would be interested in a post about Confetti do let me know cause I really love that album, it’s in my top 5 of the albums released this year.
So yeah, onto evermore.
Taylor decided to once again drop a surprise album less than 5 months after the last one (folklore). evermore and folklore are sister albums so the sound is almost the same and the songs are still written as if you’re telling a story. But evermore sounds a bit more mature to me and the production sounds a lot more magical while folklore sounded more melancholy. The topics of the songs are really interesting too, like a rejected proposal, a murder mystery and a song about her grandmother.
It’s just such a good album and ohmygosh the lyrics, the lyricssss. The lyrics are heaven sent and that’s all I can say. Plus the fact that this album was made in around 4 months??? and it’s a masterpiece??
Now here are my top 5 lyrics and my current ranking of the songs. Super hard to decide by the way.
You had a speech, you’re speechless. Loved slipped beyond your reaches. And I couldn’t give a reason. – champagne problems
I don’t like that falling feels like flying till the bone crush. – gold rush (I HAVE BEEN OBSESSED WITH THIS LYRIC SINCE THE SECOND I HEARD IT, incase you were wondering ☺️)
I know my love should be celebrated but you tolerate it AND I made you my temple, my mural, my sky. Now I’m begging for footnotes in the story of your life. – tolerate it
Don’t treat me like some situation that needs to be handled. I’m fine with my spite and my tears and my beers and my candles. – closure
Finally, here is my ranking of the songs which has changed *so much* since my first listen.
no body, no crime
long story short
’tis the damn season
cowboy like me
Now actually tada lol. There it is.
I hope you enjoyed this post and if you made it this far you deserve a round of applause *cue the applause*.
Have you listened to evermore? What are your thoughts and which songs do you like or dislike? Do comment because I’d love to chat!
Love, Hreem xx
