This week I thought it would be nice to travel back in time a little bit and review the album that lead up to her current status as an artist.
I decided to sit down with my camera and film my reaction to her 1989 album Deluxe Edition. I had a lot of fun doing this since a lot of the songs were actually singles on this album. So I will go track by track and give my opinion and thoughts on them.
1. Welcome to New York - This starts the album off right with a nice introduction of where Taylor is taking on new adventures and bringing us along for the ride. I used to hear this song all the time everytime I went to McDonald's. I was like this sounds like her but this wasn't an official single that I know of. I think it was good way to start things off.
2. Blank Space - This was the third single I believe. I remember the first time I heard this I was like "Ok TAY!" I was surprised by the more urban feel of it since she doesn't normally do that. I remember it getting a lot of play on radio during the time. The music video also shows a a new way of kind of like seeing Taylor. She gave off the more crazy side!!!
3.Style - This song makes me feel like I should be on motorcycle driving down a long desert road. It is supposedly about One Direction member, Harry Styles. It is a solid pop number and also got lots of radio play too! It is another GOOD one to have on the roster. There was A pull for this 80s sound on the album and the songs for the most part fit this vibe.
4. Out of the Woods - This is one of my personal favorites for the ALBUM. I remember when the music video came out I was impressed and I loved the song as well. It makes me wanna get up and go running. It also kind of gives me this Duran Duran or The Cure vibes. I really love this one!
5. All You Had To Do Was Stay - I think this is another well written number and I like how they say "stay" to help emphasize the word. It is catchy and fun to move along to.
6. Shake It Off - This is the big lead single from the album and pretty much is the stand out track being the most pop centric one out of the whole mix at least in my opinion. This makes you want to get up and get active. I love the message and find it kind of empowering. At some point you do have to shrug off what others say and just do your thing and not worry about the outside so much. I remember an aerobic workout video being synced up with the song at the time.
7. I Wish You Would - This is an OK song but unfortunately due to it's placement on the album it feels a little underwhelming after Shake It Off. To be honest any song that came immediately after Shake It Off was destined to pale in comparison.
8. Bad Blood - This was the big single but not this version of it. The remix with Kendrick Lamar was what I first heard and that version is the one I really loved and repeated several times. When I first heard the album version I was disappointed. I expected the rap to come on and it didn't. I have come to like the album version a little bit more but wish it was the remix here instead.
9. Wildest Dreams - This is another one of my favorite tracks on the album. I freaking loved the video which was so cinematic upon viewing. The song goes off a very moody kind of feel of reminiscing . In my reaction video I really act this one out!
10. How You Get The Girl - This is an OK number. It kind of feels closer to filler for me, personally. I am sure this song has it's fans but it just doesn't really pull me very much.
11. This Love - This song is very nice and calming to listen to. I can imagine doing a yoga to this, honestly. This isn't something I am gonna jam to necessarily but it is a nice number to rest to and think about love.
12. I Know Places - I found this song a little different from the rest of the pack and one of the more stealthy numbers. I like the sense of adventure and freedom it seems to project. This one I definitely liked.
13. Clean - This is another album favorite for me! l like the analogy of drinking in comparison to getting over a person or letting go of a relationship. I like the overall feel of the song and it has kind of a sober feel to it. This song also ends the standard edition of the album.
14. Wonderland - This is the first of 3 bonus tracks. This song uses another analogy of Alice in Wonderland in comparison of a new relationship. It is a solid song but not a track I felt that necessarily went with the standard edition.
15. You Are In Love - This is slower number and similar to "This is Love" earlier in the album. It is a sweet number and an easy listen. I like how her vocals are layered here. A soothing number to say the least.
16. New Romantics - This song was a single actually and I liked it upon first hearing. It makes you want to go out and have some fun! This was a fun way to end things out.
So overall there are a few numbers I could overlook but for the most part this is a solid pop album . Its is well produced and written. A lot of the numbers sound fresh and cohesive. If you love pop music the this could be the ticket for you!
