|We were both young when I first saw you I close my eyes & the flashback starts I'm standing there on a balcony in summer air See the lights, see the...||See the rest of the song lyrics|
I'm moved nevertheless by what can pass for a concept album about the romantic life of an uncommonly-to-impossibly strong and gifted teenage girl, starting on the first day of high school and gradually shedding naiveté without approaching misery or neurosis.
Swift may not possess the vocal power to fully sell her more lyrically generic material (Underwood's great gift), but for the most part, this remarkably self-aware adolescent's words don't falter, masterfully avoiding the typical diarist's pitfalls of trite banality and pseudo-profound bullshit.

Música country muy popera, con pocos arreglos, con una voz preciosa y unas letras que por momentos son melosas y edulcoradas. Aún así, su música sencilla, sin pretensiones, no me produjo la misma sensación que la música de los Jonas. Esta chica no parece prefabricada, no parece hecha a medida de gustarle a un determinado público, porque objetivamente, el country no es lo que más vende entre los adolescentes estadounidense, pero aún así, ella armada con su guitarra, su aspecto de niña buena y su voz dulce está siendo todo un éxito entre los chicos y chicas de su edad.… Expand

The songs are more diverse than her previous album. I liked how catchy the songs are and how they are written with indelible melody, but what really bothers me in this album is the mediocre production and Taylor Swift's poor singing. The production's flaws are clearly heard in the songs "Forever & Always" and "Change".… Expand
