I hope you’re enjoying your summer (if you can lol). I can’t believe it’s already August!!
This year took forever but it also went by super fast and it’s really strange but I mean, has anything been normal this year?
Sooo this post is about Taylor Swift’s new album that she announced on July 23rd (rip 1D’s anniversary) and released on July 24th, THAT FAST. I was so confused when I saw the post about it because she had just released her last album (Lover) less than a year ago so nobody was expecting this.
The album was written in the first 3 months of quarantine so you would expect the quality of work to be a little less but it is her best album to date. It’s not her best album in the conventional way of being full of radio engineered pop hits with catchy melodies and stuff, it’s more about the lyrics and the fact that the album is so well-written and a lyrical masterpiece. If you haven’t listened to the album you should do that right now (after reading my post heheh) because I love ittt.
My ranking of songs when I first heard them is so different to the ranking now, I can’t believe I put some of those songs that low at the beginning lol. Also it’s impossible to rank them because I love almost all of them equally but here is my attempt right now:
the last great american dynasty
my tears ricochet
this is me trying
This is such a soft and storylike album that you should listen to on a rainy night, with pretty candles, wrapped in a cardigan (heh) and while drinking tea?? maybe?? Something super cool she did is she wrote three songs about a teenage love triangle and each song is from the perspective of a different person, if you don’t listen to anything else at least listen to those three (cardigan, betty & august). It’s so interesting once you see the lyrical parrallels in those songs.
Anyways I hope you enjoyed reading this post even though it isn’t as interesting because I really love music and it’s fun to tell other people about music ☺️
Let me know what songs you’ve heard/liked from the album in the comments or just tell me about your favourite album from any artist, I love reading your comments! 💖💖
