Unfortunately, I didn’t quite like this album as much as I did the last one. Folklore has grown on me since I listened to it earlier in the year and some of the songs are starting to resonate. It’s not my favourite Swift album by far but I like it. This one is just so slow, so chill, so very Dessner, it doesn’t grab me at all. I was really not looking forward to the second listen through, although it was nowhere near as bad as I had built it up in my head.

My first listen through this was, I’ll admit, a bit disappointing. It has a slow, slow pace, with very few upbeat songs, and I thought it was a bit boring. As always, the first listen isn’t the one to fully judge an album on. Second time through, I could start picking out the good songs, and that gives me something to work with.

Took a little while to get my head around this one, after the bitterness of Reputation. The first track is something of a similar vibe and I was worried we were going to be in for another hour of ranting at the enemy. Thankfully, Taylor seems to have mellowed a little, and this album is much more like 1989.
