Taylor Swift 1989 Album | Review





A slightly different post from me today, exciting! I am a huge fan of Taylor Swift and when I heard she was releasing a new album, of course I had to buy it! Today I thought I would do a review of her new album and I have been playing it none stop - whether its at home listening to the CD or on my Iphone when I'm out and about!

It is, of course, a slight music style change for Taylor as her usual style is more country/pop but I really love this album as much as I do her other albums! I have to be honest, when she released 'Shake it off' a few months ago, I wasn't really sure if I liked it and was skeptical about the new album - but after I listened to it a few times, I found myself humming and singing it even when I wasn't listening to it as its such a catchy song and I love the album too!

I bought the normal version of the album but there is also a deluxe version available with three extra songs as well as a few demos and obviously there are 13 songs on the normal version as its Taylor's favorite number and her birthday date!

I think the album cover is great and the title - 1989 - is very personal to Taylor, herself, as its her birth year. As with a lot of people who have bought her album, I really love the little sleeve with the Polaroids as its a personal and unique touch and that seems to very fitting with the whole album as the cover is a Polaroid photo of Taylor and a line in her song 'Out of the Woods' refers to a polaroid photo; '...you took a Polaroid of us...'.

My favourite songs on the album - aside from 'Shake it off' (which you can listen to below) - include Welcome to New York, Style and Blank Space! Although 'I Know Places' and 'How You Get The Girl' are also great catchy songs too!

Overall, I think its a really catchy album and although is different to Taylor's usual music style - it is still very similar due to the deep personal lyrics in every songs. Definitely one of my favourite albums I have bought this year!

Do you like 1989? What are your favourite songs on the album?
