13 Songs, 48 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Taylor Swift's '80s-inspired fifth studio effort is her first "official pop album," with heavyweights like Max Martin, Shellback, Ryan Tedder, and Jack Antonoff helping construct a sleeker, glitzier sound. "Shake It Off" mimics "Hey Ya," OutKast's own pledge of allegiance to populism, and echoes of Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, and Belinda Carlisle can be heard throughout. 1989 is a juggernaut, as brash and brilliant as the lights of Times Square.

Unexpected but Surprisingly Savvy

I applaud Taylor for this. I like how she stepped out of her usual genre for this record. It really shows growth in her as an artist.

"Shake It Off" sounds more poppy than I would like it to but it's just the first single like her last era with "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together". Who knows what gems will come from this record.

Love Taylor!!!!!

While I love Taylor, I wish she wouldn't have gone all pop. Shake It Off is a great song with a great message. Just miss the old Taylor a bit.
