Taylor Swift’s 1989: A Track-By-Track Review (1 of 5)

This Love is the opposite when it comes to sound on 1989, with soft multi-vocals and slow warm synths that contrast to the hard-hitting synth guitars and drums that are constant in the instrumentals of most songs on the album. Many fans have ranked this song one of their lowest out of the 16 songs on 1989, but proves itself to be instrumentally, lyrically, and emotionally unique compared to the rest of the songs on the album.

Goodbye country music! Taylor Swift released her first documented pop album, 1989, on October 27th. For her fifth studio album, Swift focuses on the sound of late-80’s synth-pop.

Swift left her country roots to evolve into pop music, collaborating with a few of pop’s biggest producers and artists. Max Martin, Johan Shellback, Jack Antonoff, Ryan Tedder, and Imogen Heap are a few who co-wrote and co-produced the album with Swift, making the synth-pop centered album complete.

Storytelling the past two chapters of her life remains constant in this album, but it’s not centered around love this time.

“The last album I made [Red] was a devastated record because [while] I was writing it, I was devastated by a big heartbreak. For this new record, I was in a different place, so it has a new kind of emotional DNA. It’s about exploring the world on your own terms,” the 7-time Grammy winner said.

Stay tuned for part ⅖ of the review.
