Taylor Swift (1989) 2014

Just like everyone else on the planet, we all know who Taylor Swift is in spite of never listening to single song of hers. Well, personally I had never bothered to listen to anything she did, especially when she was the biggest Country Star. I'm not a fan of the music, so naturally I never had any desire to listen to her stuff . Well, this all changed for me once a couple of her songs (Shake It Off and Bad Blood) dropped as singles. I knew that 1989 was suppose to be heavily influenced from the 80's, making this a true Pop album, far removed from Country. Naturally I was curious to hear what the rest of the album would be. I love the two songs I mentioned, but I was highly skeptical an entire album would deliver. Very happy to say I was wrong. 1989 is a great album. It really exceeded my expectations and yes, it's definitely a Pop album and draws heavily from the best of the 80's. This just might be my new Party Album for the future. She sounds great, but I was more enamored with how the songs were crafted and arranged and how the songs worked in relations with each other throughout the entire album. It was fun to be able to pick up influences from 80's stuff.

A little fun fact about my Taylor Swift night tonight. I put my request for 1989 with my Library over 3 months ago. It arrived today and got to dive into the album tonight. In a twist of fate, Taylor was performing at Petco Park tonight. Totally forgot that she was even in town tonight. So, it was kind of an odd (or preordained) that the album would arrive 3 months to the day that she would be in town. Anyway, if you are looking for an allbum full of catchy tunes that actually sound great and unique from the tired old crap that passes for songs today, definitely give this one a Rent. Personally I will be looking for a Used Copy to Buy on eBay.
