“folklore” might be the title of the album, but it drinks from the fountain of more melancholic folk music rather than drenching itself with mythological narratives. over the course of sixteen tracks that embrace a swirl of themes around the faultless songwriting of hers, Swift even gets to tenderly encapsulate a volatile love triangle amidst the overall tranquil and sad-sounding ambience that her sudden eighth album evokes, thus handing out her best lyrical work — as well as ... read more

it’s funny how the darkened red artwork harmonizes well with the lyrical self of half the songs from the album that constantly exposes his vulnerability with one-sided flings, counterfeit relationships and the loneliness that come from countless experiences gone wrong. how the other part of his expressionless face can be secreting something also harmonizes well with the “one side of the story” saying, or perhaps it’s just the fear of being seen. i don’t think ... read more

if you were to come up with a concept of heaven and hell, you’d have plenty of references (from the bible and in the pop culture there is a few) to approach the thematic. the problem with me is that i expected too much from it when in reality, pop music has always been there to “just to make people feel good rather than making them think,” therefore no one is going to mention The Divine Comedy Trilogy (if you mention the acts itself, maybe it counts), but that’s ... read more

the value that Taemin’s third full-length album possesses is his epitome as an artist. the title is something he would think about with dread – thereby, the personal atmosphere to it arouses –, whereas the title track’s cinematographic vision was a creation of his own. he masters dancing, singing and projecting well, considering the conception of the project as a whole. it constantly pokes various genres throughout its highly-produced ride that it feels like a different ... read more
