Bubblegum pop? I wouldn't say that at all. Bar a few songs most of the album is nothing like bubblegum pop. I wouldn't describe songs like "out of the woods", "I Know Places", "Wildest Dreams", "This...

Not all of her songs have to be lyrical masterpieces. On the same album you took two of those songs from she also wrote lyrics like

"And you call me up again just to break me like a promise, so...

I've slowly become a fan of Taylor over the years since her Speak Now album and believe me, it's not hard to see why this girl does so well.

First off her songwriting IS incredible, whether people...

Listened to this lots over the past 2 days and it's truly brilliant. Don't agree at all with those saying the songs sound the same. It's s very cohesive album and intentionally so, and I think Taylor...

She'll do her usual pre-recorded track and it will be subtly touched up to sound better and then she'll mine to that but will put on a big show to distract people from it.

She left Syco after a good majority of her second album was done but lost all the tracks she'd recorded with them, and had to start from scratch with RCA on a much cheaper budget. She chose a generic...

Selena was just saying the other week how Taylor has always been there for her etc, so I doubt it.

Plus Taylor said she wrote the song about a female artist that for years she could never figure...

Agree with this. I think the open letter was great, and I think it was necessary. But she said it all in the letter, Leona's always kept it classy so I hope she stops now and let's her music say...

I think Alexandra WITH Beyoncé is unbeatable. But Alexandra on her own, whilst she delivers a stunning vocal, Melanie Amaro sounds better because her voice has a lighter tone. Because Alexandra is so...

Can't believe Bethany is a teenager now! Though it has been 7 years since they left.

It's annoying that they're doing the generic "wild child" route with her, but will be good to see Sarah back

Yeah I'm loving the 80s inspired pop sound, it's good to see that even though she's gone pop she hasn't chosen the generic route. Shake It Off is probably the most generic out of the 3 songs so far,...

According to Wikipedia, Red is platinum in the UK with 300,000 shipments! Which is pretty great, but I can definitely see 1989 selling more than that overall, I think 1989 will go 2x platinum! Her...

Taylor Swift - 1989 (Album Discussion)

Couldn't see a thread for this.

What are everyone's expectations for 1989 based on the 3 songs we've heard so far?

I really love Shake It Off and Out Of The Woods. I think Welcome To New York is...

I don't think Leona would give the album title away so easily, she posted a photo in the studio and hashtagged #sessions because that's what she's been having, studio sessions. At least, that's what...

Steal My Girl doesn't seem to be doing too great does it? Perhaps when a video is released it will rise again.

Although I think whilst the song itself isn't bad, it's more 2nd or 3rd single than...

One Direction?

Coldplay (they've had a lot of successful songs but I don't think they have that one signature one everyone associates them with)

I think Sam Smith will get the John Lewis gig too. Or maybe someone less commercial like Jesse Ware.

I can't even see Leona being a consideration to be honest, though you never know.
