Haar vorige albums waren niet altijd echt mijn ding maar deze 1989 is voor mij een schot in de roos een aanrader als je van pop muziek houd
Her best album so far, that's for sure.

Ich mag Taylor sehr, doch "1989" war für mich lange Zeit einfach ein Album das ich dank den Singles gehört habe :P
Was eientlich ungerecht ist, den das hier is eines der besseren Pop Alben der letzten Zeit! Taylor vermag mit fast allem sehr zu überzeugen!
Ihren Erfolg damit hat sie komplett verdient!
Ich die Era sehr und bin unglaublich zufrieden was sie für Singles gewählt hat!
Shake It Off

Honestly I've never been able to like Taylor Swift a whole lot. I'm not exactly sure why that was, but it might just be the tunes. So often she'd take off with tunes that hit me in the most flat way possible. I couldn't hate her, but nothing ever justified the hype (well, I get that her down-to-earth likeability is part of that, but it doesn't go far for the music).
To add to that, I never really relished the idea of listening to any of her mega-selling albums, which felt more like a potential chore than anything, just as someone who's not really into that sort of thing. This isn't particularly fair to her though, as I think some of her finest tracks are among the deep cuts, but it's just all the stuff around it that's the problem.
Understanding "1989" to be something different for her, I still didn't see myself changing my views (I don't really have an issue with country Taylor vs. pop Taylor, I'm just after the good tunes. Whether or not it's legitimate or not, I never find myself feeling as though she's lying to everyone when she makes more upbeat tunes, it just feels like another extension of her personality to me).
But something does seem to be different this time. It's not that she's written a whole bunch of pop songs, it's that she's written a whole bunch of GOOD pop songs. I mean, I detract Shellback at every given opportunity, but the guy can write a hit. I guess it's a matter of whether he's working with someone who can bring their own flavour to the table, as opposed to him sucking it out of them. It seems to be a team up that can work, but then it's not 100% reliable. I mean, I don't really enjoy the singles from "Red" that they made, and I don't think that suddenly everything's perfect here, because it's not. "Bad Blood" is a misfire, but otherwise, it's much more in the way of hits, with the first half of the album having few complaints from me. Enough so that I can say I've bought a Taylor Swift album, your move Katy & Rihanna. 4.2
This is an absolutely stellar effort from the evergreen Taylor Swift, it's quite possibly the best album of 2014.
When the album flies, it soars.
'Style', 'Blank Space', 'Out Of The Woods', 'Shake It Off' and 'Wonderland' are all pop gems with huge hit potential.
The melancholy 'Wildest Dreams' sees Taylor doing a better Lana Del Rey than Lana Del Rey herself. In further imitation mode, 'Bad Blood' is bratty and bitter, it seems to have been ripped straight from Avril Lavigne's 2007 hit album 'The Best Damn Thing'.
Taylor crafts a beautiful track in 'Clean' with some hefty-handed help from Imogen Heap. The former bringing her pop sensibility, the latter her poignant lyrics and quirky instrumental.
The deluxe offers tracks worth paying extra for, with 'Wonderland' (a.k.a. 'I Knew You Were Trouble' Pt II) and the big chorus sing-a-long moment of 'New Romantics'.
The album rarely dips in quality, but even when it does it's still listenable. Opener 'Welcome to New York' hopefully doesn't put off too many listeners from continuing with the album, whilst 'I Know Places' has one of those vocal patterns that people will distinctly love or find unbearable.
Taylor Swift may have gotten the hype and sales in 2014, but she damn deserved it.Laatst gewijzigd: 12/06/2015 13:36
Incredible fifth album by one of the most legendary singers of all time.
Is it weird that I like country Taylor more than pop Taylor? I'm probably the only one (besides the country community) but I feel more of a connection to her country stuff. Nonetheless, this is a solid transition to proper pop, with really good production and vocal, and the songwriting component hasn't gone downhill for the most part. I liked pretty much everything on here except for Bad Blood which sounds awfully juvenile, but there are a lot of bright possibilities on here, and I feel like the album will only grow on me as more singles are released over the coming year. She has branched out, and done it exceptionally well. Good stuff. 4.6/6.
I was and still am disappointed that Taylor has ditched country completely on this album as I prefer her in that genre to pop, but I like the mix she's had prior to this. Still, this is a strong pop album and she sounds great as always.
This album has the same musical direction of the last one (Red), the cd it's pure Pop (That's the result of working with Max Martin). I like the tracks: Bad blood, Style, All you had to do, Shake it off, Wonderland and I know places.
I dare say this isn't a bad album. But the way that every track from it, (minus, say, How You Get The Girl) has been ridiculously overplayed, made this album totally unlistenable. And do not even get me started on the blatant Lana Del Rey ripoff that is Wildest Dreams. Its a decent pop album, designed to top the charts, but for now I cannot stand it. I do not hold very high hopes for her next album either.

Each Taylor Swift album in has gotten better and better in my opinion. With each album she grows as a songwriter and as an artist. She tries out different genres and different sounds as she goes along.
This album is undeniably her most pop sounding record, but at the same time is not just simple bland pop. She once again brilliantly uses storytelling through the songs and throws all her emotions and feelings into the songs. Her and super producer Max Martin (P!nk, Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson) go together extremely well on this album and the result is an all round great sounding album.
So glad that she won the well deserved accolade of 'Album of the year' at the 2016 Grammy's. Can't wait to see what she does next! Laatst gewijzigd: 27/04/2017 19:34
das Grauen ist wieder da!
Hét album waarmee Taylor Swift van country- naar popartiest is gegaan. Ik was vroeger nooit zo'n fan van haar, maar ik moet zeggen dat dit wel een prima album is! De hoogtepunten zijn 'Blank Space' (5*), 'Style' (4,5*) en 'Bad Blood' (4,5*). Ook 'Wildest Dreams', 'New Romantics' en 'Shake It Off' kunnen ermee door!
