No next album poll this week, I’m choosing the next one as a Christmas present to myself


Don’t care / abstain.


Couple of great songs that I would happily listen to any time, but no interest in listening to the whole thing - starts to feel too samey and blurs together

Will given it another listen today though, in light of giving her two 2020 albums quite a few run-throughs

Saw her at Hyde Park when she was touring that album.
Easily my best Hyde Park concert. Great memories, great album.

A few bangers but she’s released better records before and since. 7.

I think this is the correct opinion!

What has she released since that’s better? Folklore is the only one that come close and even then I still much prefer 1989. Red is on the same level as 1989 I reckon, I tried listening to one of the pre-Red albums (Speak Now I think) and thought it was poor

Favourite song - can’t choose between Blank Space, Style and Wildest Dreams but there’s no a single song on the album I’d skip.


Singles and a couple of other tracks are great. Lot of forgettable stuff in between. 6?

I would agree with Red being on a level with 1989. Personally, I think that both records she’s released this year are better than 1989, but it’s a narrow margin.

I actually voted 8 because I think 7’s a leeeetle harsh

10/10 perfect pop album.

Body is not too similar


That’s a fib actually sometimes I cba with HYGTG but it’s still not without its merits.

Yep, the only track I consistently skip

Lover is better. And folklore. And probably evermore once I’ve given it a few more plays.


It’s a really fantastic pop record. There’s a load of great tunes on there, only a couple of stinkers really (hi Bad Blood). This was probably the album that pushed TS up that last step to all-conquering massive popstar right? - and for good reason. Don’t really have huge amounts to write about it, just good fun isn’t it.

Clean narrowly misses out on best song. 8


Blank Space is a heck of a pop song though isn’t it


pretty harsh, he usually posts good stuff
