Taylor Swift’s ‘Reputation’ Has Arrived

Recommended Posts

dancing with our hands tied is so good! 

tbh I only listened to 1989 and this album so I don't know if it's Taylor at her best

overall it's a decent pop album but doesn't live up to the hype

It’s crazy how Taylor got all of Britney’s people. She took max Martin and took Joseph Kahn.

that's Britney's fault tho, she doesn't want to spend and invest in her music so.

I'm in love with this album!

It's a solid album, I'm a casual fan of her's (1989 was woefully overrated, aside from a few tracks) but I'm digging this album.  It's not anything new musically but does it's job.   :urite:

I love Phonography (Thx Gaga) but that Taylor product doesn't resemble it at all. Matter of fact;

I did listen some songs from Reputation and I cannot connect with :huh: Taylor  She just doesn't do it for me. Doesn't represent my emotions. :weirdmeout:

I love the album as a whole and I get the coherence of it, but I just don't enjoy two songs the way I do with the rest! Taylor used the same formula for this album as she did with 1989, but this one has a more mature style of writing and a darker sound - if you're a lover of pop music, you will understand what I am saying. I find the first half of the album perfectly choosen and she can release whatever she wants as a next single! End Game, I Did Something Bad, Don't Blame Me and Delicate are definetely a stand out and they deserve a video; I can see Delicate as the fifth single and End Game the third single, she needs ASAP another huge song because Ready For It is dying slowly without having any impact! Dancing With Our Hands Tied is also a great contender for the next single and Call It What You Want has this moody and chill sound, perfectly going with this sound from the charts.. Overall, it's a great album and as The Guardian says "superb songcraft meets extreme drama"! 

p.s. I bet This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things is about Katy and Calvin! The most fun song on the album; unexpectedly funny track! :bang:

Nice Things is about Kanye West. The second verse talks about the Phone Call that Kim leaked about Famous.

 

Overall, I’m not sure how I feel about the album as a whole. I can definitely see how it’s cohesive and works better as a whole than individually (we can thank Max Martin for that...). But there’s something missing. Like a huge hit like Shake It Off or Blank Space. Every song on 1989 could’ve been a single and gone top 10, reputation doesn’t have that. 

Getsway Car is probably the closest to Red and 1989, so it should be single 3 or 4, to win back people who liked her old stuff but weren’t impressed with RFI? Or LWYMMD. 

Oh and I find her “talk singing” to be extra annoying on this album for some reason.

I give props to the albums creative director. The album cover and booklet are AMAZING! It’s what I was used to from Britney.... yet the best we get now is a music video screen capture....

I don't buy the whole "the old Taylor is dead". This is honestly the same old Taylor with new tunes surrounding similar lyrical content. The whole "new Taylor" was just a marketing strategy to make people curious of her new music. Smart marketing strategy, I'll give her that.

She’s a good marketing/business woman, she knows her vision and is in charge of it unlike most mainstream artists which is why she’s unbeatable at the moment. Bigger labels should take notes on this and see what their artists are capable of if they had control over their image like Taylor does.

Just listened. There are standout tracks where the production is amazing but a lot of songs are Taylor Swift doing what she's always been doing. In a lot of songs, she talks (fast sometimes) over the music she's not singing, and I don't understand how Antonoff was able to craft an amazing album such as Melodrama with Lorde and he does that with Taylor. The album is a mix of every pop music we hear on the radio with inspiration (I would guess) from Superchicks (old I know) and every other pop act that has been successful in the 2000's. I don't think Martin did his best. A few song lyrics sound like the pages of a high school girl, while some (a couple) are more adult. Overall with the hype and the fact that it's Taylor Swift, the album is disappointing and "Ready" and "LWYMMD" don't reflect at all the spirit of the full work. :NYsassy::byebitch:

Ready is a disappointment. Had potential. But it just sounds so dated, like Britney already passed that with Work B,

Taylor never explicitly credits Britney but she definitely studied Britney's eras. Even in Look at What she does this little Britney move when she's with the boys (the hand in hair smile). 

Too bad her new stuff is nowhere as innovative as Blackout and her sexy image feels so forced. The dancing I cringed. But she's yet to say something about Britney Hmmm.

Taylor's music... 

I wouldn't be surprised.  Taylor has no personality / individuality... so :tiffcackle:

Because we don't have her problems maybe? I mean she did great on Bad Blood, i can relate but on this one it's even more about herself.

It kinda grew on me but I totally get your point. The song is not timeless and it hardly reaches a climax. To me, it's the best on her album but out of it, the song isn't really a standout. It's very generic.

I was just at Target and I have to give Taylor credit on one thing. She does promo very well. When will Britney?
