‘Folklore’ demonstrates Taylor Swift’s musical abilities to the max. This 8th entry is such a refreshing and captivating alternative piece of work with some beautiful melodies and songwriting. Swift really takes a huge step up even if it was risky. This feels like a project never to be forgotten and easily champions itself as the best album of the year. It’s simply a beautiful piece of fiction.

It’s nice and welcoming for sure. It does feel pretty glued to one sound but I’d say it still manages to carve something out of itself. It’s still not really an extraordinary spark in modern pop but it’s riding with the waves that the household names created and that’s still a fair shot.

Just like Taylor Swift’s Folklore, Phoebe Bridgers soft, aesthetic folk album is perfectly nostalgic and dreamlike. It’s got a sense of vulnerability and allows you to feel and explore these hard-hitting moments in a peaceful mindset tuned with some very poignant songwriting.

Music is universal. I’ve always spent time looking at lyric translations and I do occasionally review and enjoy projects in a foreign language whether it be in Spanish or Korean or French, it doesn’t matter because it’s the music that speaks to you.

‘Music To Be Murdered By’ does really feel like it’s album title. Eminem is not as interesting as he used to be, he never really reinvents himself into a new sound he’s always stuck with what he’s been doing for the past 5 albums except it’s even more painfully average.

Treat yourself Meghan, there’s no need to treat us.

Her vocals aren’t really something I particularly like especially on the overall sound design the album has. The album is trying its hardest to be current but it’s just failing in a load of levels.

Hm, I surprisingly liked Reputation and didn’t understand the hate, but I didn’t expect anything like that. Hell, I didn’t know what to expect at all. It’s a great album ngl, wasn’t thinking the production would be that clean. Haven’t listened to the deluxe version as I don’t know the difference between the og and that one.

I really liked it, I hadn’t heard much else from her that I’d say I’d truly loved, but this album was amazing IMO. The first half was really strong and only a bit fell apart in the second half. One of my top albums of 2020 for sure
