Positives


Overall a strong album by Taylor Swift that results from new beats and mesmerizing melodious patterns.

Negatives


Total contradiction to Taylor Swifts past albums – a sense of maturity in her writing whilst finishing from her stained acoustic guitar days. This can be viewed down upon by her fans that prefer her older songs.

Full Review

Taylor Swift sweeps us off our feet for the beginning of a new start evoked by her 5th studio album, 1989. The majority of the songs of this album influenced by 80s glam pop shocked her fans since it was a risky move in her musical career, yet she managed to gain just as much recognition and became the elite hot topic of star news worldwide.

Taylor Swift started pursuing success in country music at the young age of 14 yet practiced since the age of 5. She then released her first debut album at the age of 16, merely something so successful for a young age. Now at the age of 25, she shows the impact of maturity in her musical style going from desperate to satisfaction. She can be modelled as a powerful icon for the “girl-world” due to the lyrics of the songs in her new ground-breaking album which makes her all the more successful.

Whilst she matured drastically in her style of 1989 compared to her previous acoustics albums such as Red and Speak Now, the change in the album was demonstrated as something exponentially influential and revolutionary. Though, when comparing 1989 to her older albums, the lyrics have a deeper connection, yet contradicts with the new style of upbeat music. These two features that are divergent to each other meld together creating something beautiful and even more successful than anything before. The mainstream aspect of the album all together makes it even more successful due to its glam and lively lyrics.

Essentially, this album is still the art of music that explains the emotional impact of her ex-lovers, yet the lyrics are less “lovey-dovey” and more optimistic than ever before. The album displays her unusual retrospect on her love life, going from temperance of her ex-lovers to a more positive single attitude. Such as in Style, we get the feeling that she doesn’t really care about the breakup and just thinks of it as another failed relationship. The song is just part of the story that Taylor Swift is trying to approach – a story that tells the single life of someone who is known yet unknown on a personal level for the right reasons, something fans are able to relate to.

The whole album displays an eclectic mix of influential music styles like pop, rock and synthpop. In the songs Bad Blood and Shake It Off we see the deep change of perspectives of Taylor Swift, from a good girl attitude to the reckless woman behaviour. However, we still have a sight of the old Taylor Swift with the lyrics of songs like Out of the Woods and All You Had to Do Was Stay.

Along with the story that Taylor Swift is trying to write within the album, she created one of her most highly popular songs called Blank Space that demonstrates the lack of hopelessness in her love life, but the contrary well-being of a single woman that doesn’t show heartbreak yet a healthy behaviour towards a break-up – something the reckless youth should learn.

All in all, it’s evident that Taylor Swift takes pride in her choice of moving to New York (as stated in the first song of 1989 – Welcome to New York) to live her single life happily. Also, Taylor Swift demonstrates the power of change and perspectives that makes her influential and iconic to many. The one word that can simply describe her album in the most honest way is revolutionary. Unmistakeably, Taylor Swift brings meaning to the phrase of “out with the old and in with the new” and that’s something worthy of learning from her.
