Beats by Dre Wireless are excellent headphones, with crisp sound and excellent noise reduction. The headphones filter out lower noises well, but higher noises, such as nearby voices, can still be heard albeit much less than without headphones on. They are the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn, and are very durable too.
The only pitfall with Beats by Dre Headphones is the price - for much lower prices, one can get headphones almost as good as Beats by Dre. Thus, it becomes a question of how much one is willing to spend: if you are a sound quality enthusiast with a few hundred dollars handy, go with Beats by Dre. Otherwise, for the average listener Sony also has great headphones beginning at $20.
Get ready for an hour of 100% pop, loud, nonstop drums, and sharp sounding melodies. As a fan of earlier Taylor Swift albums like Fearless and Taylor Swift, I liked her country more than the endless pop that is 1989. Thus, in my opinion, all the songs on 1989 are mediocre or good at best, but not the take-your-breath-away country pop crossovers that songs like You Belong With Me and Enchanted were.
I didn't like Bad Blood, a stripped pop song with a weak melody and weaker lyrics, but Wildest Dreams and I Know Places were enjoyable songs due to their original melodies and strong lyrics. Overall, her lyric writing is excellent as ever, but melodies are a bit lacking in some songs.
Song list: Welcome to New York, Blank Space, Style, Out Of The Woods, All You Had To Do Was Stay, Shake It Off, I Wish You Would, Bad Blood, Wildest Dreams, How You Get The Girl, This Love, I Know Places, Clean
Taylor Swift - Ms. Swift's debut album - has a very full country sound, full of guitar twangs and fiddles. The album's songs are consistently good (not mediocre, but not flawless either), with a few that fall flat.
In my opinion, Taylor's voice has not finished maturing and has still has a nasal sound and her accent is apparent in her singing. It makes her stripped vocals a little less appealing; however, her excellent songwriting makes up for this weakness.
In my opinion, sonically, the best songs on Taylor Swift are: Tim McGraw and Teardrops on My Guitar; my least favorites are I'm Only Me When I'm With You and A Perfectly Good Heart.
Full song list: Tim McGraw, Picture to Burn, A Place In This World, Cold As You, Tied Together With a Smile, Stay Beautiful, Should've Said No, Mary's Song (Oh My My My), Our Song, I'm Only Me When I'm With You, Invisible, A Perfectly Good Heart, Teardrops on My Guitar, The Outside
Fearless, Taylor Swift's sophomore album, is composed of 13 songs including the two hits "Love Story" and "You Belong With Me", the latter renowned as Ms. Swift's best song to date.
This album has obvious country sounds mixed with a dash of pop. Lyrics revolve around romance, from unrequited love to new relationships. I liked the way Taylor wrote with rare poetic skill, singing lines such as "and I don't know how why but with you I'd dance in a storm in my best dress, fearless" (Fearless).
In my opinion, the album's songs are all excellent with the minor exception of Tell Me Why and White Horse. I think that those who enjoy Red, Speak Now, and Taylor Swift will enjoy Fearless; however, 1989 fans may not enjoy this album as much.
Full song list: Fearless, Fifteen, Love Story, Hey Stephen, White Horse, You Belong With Me, Breathe, Tell Me Why, You're Not Sorry, The Way I Loved You, Forever and Always, The Best Day, and Change.
