Released: November 10, 2017
By: Taylor Swift
When she released “Look What You Made Me Do,” Taylor Swift told us the old Taylor was dead. But while her music may continue to change, the forward-thinking artist in her is still there.
Taylor explodes into this album with the hip-hop/rap song “…Ready for It?” Some of her songs have more of a pop-rock feel, while several on the second half remain in the type of pop from her 1989 album. The flow is strange, but the music is solid.
While some fans might have been turned away from this album based on the first two song releases, you have to give it a full listen. She’s hidden the best gems. Songs like “Delicate,” “King of My Heart” and “Dress” are among the best and are interspersed throughout.
Final say: Swift continues to surprise in the best way. ★★★★☆
