I now live with the constant fear that Taylor Swift could drop an album at anytime.
Soo, last week, Taylor Swift dropped her new album “evermore”, the sister to “folklore” and I want to share my thoughts on it. But before, I think I should share my quick thoughts on “folklore” because they are sisters.
In the first listen I didnt like “folklore” but then I started loving it, its not my favorite album from her but its not my least favorite; my favorite songs from the album are (in order): 1. illicit affairs. 2.mirrorball. 3. exile. 4. The 1. 5. The last great american dynasty.
Now, lets talk about “evermore”, I like it more than “folklore”, I know that it is an unpopular opinion, but I like more songs from this album than “folklore” and I only skip two songs when Im playing the album. I also like that its a more diverse album, we have breakups, murders, having a crush and having a crush from your hometown; and the melodies and vibes are very different form song to song, the perfect example is “tolerate it”, “no body, no crime” and “happiness”, they are all next to each other in the album and are very different. I feel like this album has vibes from every album in some of the lyrics, for example in “willow” the lyric “But I come back stronger than a 90s trend” has such reputation vibes to it.
Now lets talk about my three favorite songs from this album (in order)
1.happiness. “There’ll be happiness after you / But there was happiness because of you”
I love this song, its my favorite from the album. This song is really sad but for some reason when I sing it I smile omg. I highly recommend this song to anyone. Even if you dont like Taylor Swift, listen to this song.
2. no body, no crime “Good thing my daddy made me get a boating license when I was fifteen / And I’ve cleaned enough houses to know how to cover up a scene”
Ms. Swift didnt have to go this hard in a song. I was actually debating if this was my favorite or not, but it is a close second. I really like the story she tells in this song, it is very different from the rest of the album and I love a murder mystery story, soo this had to be one of my favorites.
3. gold rush “But I don’t like a gold rush, gold rush / I don’t like anticipating my face in a red flush”
The vibes of this song are like no other omg. I love this song, it makes me want to be in love with someone that everyone wants omg. I really like the daydreaming vibe it has, because we all have done that at some point.
Honorable mentions are “’tis the damn season”, “champagne problems” and “long story short”.
I love this album, its not my favorite but its in the top 5. I really hope that there is a documentary like the one they did for “folklore” because in that case it made me appreciate more songs and I also want the live versions of my favorites omg.
Hope you enjoyed this entry and see you in the next one!!!
