"1989 Taylor's best work"

Taylor Swift is written for definition under 'America's Sweetheart'. The blonde, clean-cut, poster child unravels her fifth album. Swift embarks on a journey to embody every pop element that floats around New York City, her departure from Nashville will allow her to neglect her country roots for a while. Taylor is the varsity cheerleader of the industry. She's likeable, adored by professionals, a grade A student with a flawless reputation and dates the most popular guys in school, her music reaches the masses with friendly lyrics and unforgettable melodies

''Shake It Off'' the easy-listening guaranteed smash isn't synonymous with Red hits such as ''22'' or 'We Are Never Getting Back Together'' with opening guitar strums and memorable lyrics instead it's connecting it's verses around a upbeat saxophone line. The idea of a perfect lead single generating great numbers to strengthen the arrival of Swift after a two year hiatus.

Swift is a skilled songwriter no doubt, wording her lines with an edge she writes on the nostalgic track entitled 'Style', ''You’ve got that James Dean daydream look in your eye/ And I’ve got that red-lipped classic thing that you like'' it doesn't seem dumbed yet easy enough to understand for the average 16 year old first time

Hip-hop beats and popping ’80s bass lines are used on the track 'Bad Blood' a song showing no remorse, displaying invulnerability, the statement is ''I'm not going to be the victim anymore''

''Wildest Dreams'' is straight Lana Del Rey

Swift doesn't push or redefine pop music in the way that Beyonce or Gaga does she doesn't need to nether does Katy Perry or Rihanna they give you those great pop records that never get removed from your head.

Every track could effortlessly be used as singles they're all anthems. Taylor was bound to eventually create a full on pop album and she did it well. She left her guitar home for this one.

    Never actually given her a listen to, this one sounds too young for me too but good points comparing her music to other artists and why it works for her.
