Taylor Swift Music Review: 1989

1989:
1989 is clearly the superior Taylor Swift
album. This is a well accepted notion
among many fans, Keertana Addagudi,
who for some misguided reason argues on
behalf of Swift’s Evermore album can’t
help but admit that “it is the most awarded
pop album”. She also reluctantly admits
that she thinks “You Are In Love” off of
Taylor’s 1989 album is “…her best song”.
Sanjana Addagudi, Folklore apologist,
confesses “..I just love 1989” even goes so
far to say “I was going to do that one but
you took it first”. 1989 is Taylor Swift’s
album and even those who are supposed to
disagree can’t help themselves!!!
1989 is Taylor Swift’s official transition into pop music. The widely praised album
inexplicably reveals Swift’s duality. Although 1989 may be behind in terms of lyrical
sophistication, Evermore’s over-complicatedness makes it too sophisticated to
understand. Even English teacher Mr. Hokkanen is confused and perplexed by some of
Swift’s lyrics on Evermore!
In regards to other arguments, a lackluster song doesn’t break an album in the
same way that a great one doesn’t make one. The argument that some songs on 1989
lack sophistication and complexity is completely beside the point to its greatness as
an album. An album does not need to be entirely lyrically complex to be the greatest,
and any argument against this pushes that good music is complex, and is essentially
purple prose that is up for analysis.
I believe that the greatness of 1989 lies in its musical impact and overall catchiness.
TheMusic.Com says “No other album has had the same cultural impact, winning the
Grammy for Album Of The Year, and setting the tone for the next five years of
commercial pop. And what makes good commercial pop? Catchy songs with
straightforward lyrics about love and loss and finding inner strength, paired with
beats that gallop persistently forward, and invite listeners to feel something.” Good
music doesn’t have to use big words to show how great it is, the songs and the impact
they have speak for themselves.

In all honesty we all believe music is subjective and everyone’s opinions matter. However we would
defend all these albums with our lives! (Clearly shown lol). But now it’s up to you to decide. Hearing
these arguments, what do YOU think is the best Taylor Swift album out of these three?
