Album Review: 1989 (Taylor’s Version)

Album Review: 1989 (Taylor’s Version)

On October 27, Taylor Swift’s new re-recorded album, with 5 new vault tracks, released, and Swifties went crazy. Right as the album released at 12 a.m., millions of fans crashed both Spotify and Apple music causing a delay on this release due to an extreme number of people trying to listen to the album all at once. Within moments, however, these issues were resolved and fans around the world were able to listen to 1989 (Taylor’s Version).

As a fan of the original 1989 album, I knew I was going to like all the classic songs that I grew up loving, like “New Romantics” and “Style”. However, I was also very impressed with the new vault tracks released; I feel like they really added to the album and the whole ‘vibe’ of it. My personal favorite vault track was “Is it Over Now?”. I really like how Talyor re-records her albums, not just for the reason of getting the rights to her music back, but also, I like getting to hear the slight differences in the songs as she re-records them. For example, in all these new re-recorded albums that she has made, I feel like you can really hear how far her voice has grown and developed as she has grown older.

Later that night of the release, Taylor shocked fans even more by releasing the deluxe edition of this album including the 5 vault tracks as well as a fan favorite song, “Bad Blood” featuring Kendrick Lamar. This beloved album re-record has been topping the global music charts and breaking records. With the release of this re-recording, Taylor was able to reach the milestone of billionaire status and once again, own the right to this album and the songs included on it. Now Swifties will just have to wait to see which album she will re-record next… my bet is on Reputation!
