EDITORS’ NOTES

Whether she's strapping on her glitter-covered acoustic guitar or luxuriating in exquisite electronics, Taylor Swift is a romantic at heart, holding onto hope no matter what. The wistful “Forever & Always” unspools its doomed love story over gently insistent strumming; “Speak Now” keeps its guitar-pop strut even as Swift teeters into despair; “All You Had to Do Was Stay” pairs dreamy sonics with could've-been lyrics.
