Taylor’s new single is sweet and fun and all, but the announcement of the album underwhelmed me if I’m being honest. I was hoping for an album very similar to her self titled album, something more heavily country - yet she’s gone the other way and has decided to do a predominantly pop album. Taylor’s been my favourite artist since 2009, with Taylor Swift and Fearless being my favourite 2 albums of hers; it’s clear to see why 1989 doesn’t excite me as much as the past albums have. This is like the situation with Yeezus, as much as I loved that album it just did not compare to the likes of The College Dropout and Late Registration - I hope this isn’t the same with 1989.
