overall: good album, really liked jack antonoff's influence. better than reputation imo on first listen. i'll give it a bit more to digest but i'm really digging it so far, a few bum tracks but overall strong

Still hasn’t leaked yet

It’s been leaked to 4 hours now. I’m surprised took this long for someone to make a thread

This is her best album ever imo. I’m not even all the way through and I’m obsessed. It’s so.. confident and varied and emotional. And the lyrics really hit me

On the first listen. I really enjoyed the album. Way more then I thought and more then reputation. I really like the overall production on the album. It’s more minimal compared to reputation (which isn’t a bad thing). I also love the 80s synths on the tracks. This is definitely has 1989 elements but obviously different then that album. But it’s s good body of work overall. It’s pretty impressive this far in her career she can still make a quality album

Only Miss Americana, Paper Hearts and Cornelia Street stood out for me. A 1-2-3 punch.

The rest...

I have to admit that as much as I LOVE Miss Americana, I don’t understand it . I feel like it’s supposed to be political but it’s so subtle. 

 

My running theiry: she’s singing to/about Hillary Clinton

I’m obsessed with Paper Rings.. I cant help but think it sounds like Avril Lavigne though? Anyone else get that? It literally sounds like it could be her

How would you guys rank it among her other albums after initial listen? Does it really give pop Red 2.0? How does it stand to her pop albums?

 

I am still waiting to be surprised. jj2

This is absolutely Red 2.0 in my mind. I love it. It’s her best album on first listen in my opinion.

Oh, that's lovely. oprah7 Everything pointed out it would turn out as the Red 2.0 considering first couple of care-free singles then The Archer and Lover rolled in and it already felt that it had many layers to it. 

Standout tracks?

Everyone here is naming Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince, Paper Rings and Soon You'll Get Better, so I am assuming those definitely belong among stronger ones. But what about the other favorites or soon to be favorites? jj2

i've just had the first full listen and it's really good but she WONT RISK ANYTHING

6803d85e1e3eabdd4980d87645da6c371c62addd

i was waiting for some twist and this is such a rehash of her whole career im mad

6803d85e1e3eabdd4980d87645da6c371c62addd

Paper Rings is super fresh in the context of this record, Cornelia Street is a cute bop, London Boy just hits me home hehe and False God's sax is great

6803d85e1e3eabdd4980d87645da6c371c62addd

for now it's

1. 1989

2. Red

3. Speak Now

4. reputation

5. Lover

6. Fearless

7. debut
