    If Taylor Swift decides to have the TS7 era to be as lowkey as the rep era then i'm sorry lads but i'm not gonna be here for it. NO FAM, there's reason for me to keep on waiting and getting excited every 2-3 years only to be let down. Things have limits. I love Taylor to pieces but the rep era was a DISASTER (not commercially obviously), and she should take the fan criticism by heart. Not because i'm being negative, it's because of feedback in order for things to get better in the future.

    The rep era NEVER needed to pander to only her fanatics. There are many fans who expected a REAL comeback. If you're not comfortable enough to come back to the spotlight then why start it in August 2017 in the first place? Just because ''its for the fans'' it doesn't excuse as to why the era had to be silent, lowkey and BORING. Her previous eras managed to bring new fans because taylor was willing to promote and many people got the chance to hear her albums. Let's be honest with ourselves, how many new fans did the rep era bring? Yeah............in fact fairly few to almost none, because taylor was doing absolutely nothing and to make even matters worse, many people forgot that she released new material because of the lowkey nature of the era. I'm not making this up.

    Yeah but why make a throw away era? It's very clear that she suffered a massive public fallout in 2016 and everybody thought that she was ''cancelled''. For that regard, the rep era was gonna be the comeback era, in other words, the comeback era to end all comeback eras. because of that, millions of swifties expected a lot from this era and so did i. But what did she do? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. This was essentially a comeback without making a comeback. Not to mention her fan interactions were non existent compared to her previous eras.

    I really don't wanna seem like i'm beating the dead horse here but I HATE THE REP ERA SO MUCH. It's an absolute disgrace in the name of one of my fave artists out there.

    What i'm about to say will get lads pressed but i couldn't care any less. The reputation era is honestly probably WORSE than Katy Perry's Witness era and Ariana Grande's Dangerous Woman era. Say what you will about Witness and Dangerous Woman, but AT LEAST Katy Perry and Ariana Grande actually DID some promo and attended some award shows. As for the rep era..................NOTHING HAPPENED!!! Yeah, sure it was far more commercially successful than Witness and DW but that's just about it. The era was BORING, miserable and infuriating beyond comprehension. Taylor did absolutely NOTHING with the singles, sat home, went silent and did no promo whatsoever. To make matters worse, Taylor released the Swift Life and PROMISED that the fans can contact with Taylor but it NEVER HAPPENED. To add, at least Katy and Ariana didn't have the stupid Ticketmaster Verified Fan which asked the fans to empty their wallets by buying merchandise as a way to ''increase the chances of getting tickets''. It was such a greedy marketing move from Taylor's label and i have NO IDEA why the bloody hell she went along with it. As if that was not bad enough, only 5% OF VERIFIED FANS got the chance to buy tickets for the tour. ''why do you care? at least the tour is breaking attendance records'' because swifties are willing to eat things up quickly. On the other hand, I AM A SWIFTIE FROM ATHENS, GREECE FFS, i am coming from a nation which suffers a massive economic crisis and yet her tickets are OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive. Because of this, i couldn't afford to go see her in London.

    Yeah but people didn't sign up for an era where Taylor stays silent. People signed up cause we expected promo, award shows appearances and live tv performances.

    Well.............i wasn't saying that the era has been a mess ''commercially''. The album and the singles did pretty well but at the same time, the promo rollout has been tragic and also Taylor's habit of attending award shows has been lacking except the time when she attended the Billboard Music Awards last May.

    As a fan, it frustrates me because this year was supposed to be her year, the Sweetener era is supposed to be the era where Ariana delivers the goods after a frustrating DW era and also snatch wigs left and right on award shows. But on the other hand, her mental health does come first. The very least we would want to see is Ariana attending an award shows, trying to put on a brave face and ending up breaking down to tears.

    Fair point but at the same time, her comeback has been highly anticipated. It wasn't just a comeback, it was supposed to be the comeback to end all comebacks after the 2016 public fallout which supposedly ''cancelled'' her career. Considering Taylor's standards, i expected something so much better. I don't disregard Taylor's mental health because looking after yourself is the most important thing but at the same thing you shouldn't forget to please your fans. I mean, i saw plenty of swifties feeling alienated for the fact that Taylor has been silent throughout the era. It's not just the fact that i didn't experience the excitement as a new fan but it's also the fact that there was barely anything exciting about that era compared to her previous ones. ''the album captures everything she wanted: harsh, cold, dark, bitter, sad feelings'' As i've mentioned previously, i think she does a pretty good job in conveying those feelings through her lyrics and i do believe that on the 1st half of the album, she subtly says a ''f*ck you'' towards the media by playing the character based from media's perception of Taylor. However, the feeling of darkness should have been conveyed much more effectively with much more interesting instrumentals. I mean come on fam, how can you expect me to buy into ''Taylor's darker look'' when she decides to follow the route of generic trap pop music with IDSB, LWYMMD, So It Goes and End Game? These songs feel like as if they are leftovers from Post Malone, Cardi B etc. A more effective way of conveying dark feelings, is adapting a dark synthwave sound. it's a billion times much more interesting than doing generic trap pop.
