Oct 27, 20141989 isn’t a “crossover” success. It’s the album every subsequent blockbuster must now reckon with.
Oct 29, 2014There's evolution with purpose in every fibre of 1989, and far from jettisoning her integrity in this drastic lunge, she's proved in her bold, risky decision that she's got courage in her convictions to pull it off and faith in her fans to accept the new direction.
Dec 1, 2014With 1989 she has succeeded in leveraging the most cordial and familiar of pop music outpourings to something that feels like a statement, a work of note and the sinew of some kind of emotional connective tissue–binding tastemakers, rock critics, guys I work with and my 12 year old cousin; irrevocably and unexpectedly.
Oct 30, 2014Swift’s songwriting is as consistently razor-sharp as it’s ever been.
Oct 30, 2014Taylor Swift may not be challenging societal norms in the same way as Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and my own band CHRIST ALIVE are, but she’s relatable and that counts for a lot. I spent a surprising amount of 1989 rooting for its protagonist and sharing in her triumph.
Oct 27, 20141989's standout tracks retain the narrative detail and clever metaphor-building that distinguished Swift's early country songs, even amid the diversions wrought by the aggressive studio production on display throughout.
Oct 27, 20141989 is a deeply catchy, sleekly-produced pop record with the slightly juiceless quality of an authorized biography, a would-be tell-all bleached of the detailed insight she’s trained us to expect from her.

Jun 16, 2017Se no seu antecessor, o “Red”, Taylor havia apenas experimentado trabalhar com o hitmaker Max Martin em apenas 3 faixas, desta vez elaSe no seu antecessor, o “Red”, Taylor havia apenas experimentado trabalhar com o hitmaker Max Martin em apenas 3 faixas, desta vez ela resolveu colocá-lo à frente do que viria a ser o “1989”, o tendo como companheiro na produção executiva do disco que foi descrito por Taylor como seu "primeiro álbum oficialmente pop".
“1989” apresenta o notável afastamento dos trabalhos anteriores da cantora, trocando as influências country por synthpop, pop alternativo e o bubblegum pop. Taylor descreve o álbum como o seu “renascimento”, por isso resolveu chamá-lo de ‘’1989’’, pois foi o ano que nasceu e também pela influência do pop do final dos anos 80 em boa parte do disco. Liricamente, Taylor manteve a qualidade dos trabalhos anteriores, porém mostrando amadurecimento ao escrever sobre uma nova fase de sua vida, cantando sobre temas como autodescoberta, liberdade, o assédio da mídia e, é claro, amor. Mas diferente dos trabalhos anteriores, neste álbum o tema amor foi abordado com uma nova visão mais realista.
“1989” foi o terceiro disco de Taylor a vender mais de 1 milhão de cópias em sua semana de lançamento, a consagrando como única artista da história a conseguir este feito com 3 álbuns.… Expand
Oct 27, 2014I absolutely loved this album. I was already expecting to be good, but not on this level. This is a pop masterpiece. She not only brings a popI absolutely loved this album. I was already expecting to be good, but not on this level. This is a pop masterpiece. She not only brings a pop original, that has nothing to do with this mainstream pop out there, she brings ferocity in her work. The lyrics for this album are good, and it gets even better when you realize that this is a pop record and it's not full of **** lyrics. And it's perfectly produced as well. Her best work ever. Album of the year.
Best ones: Style, Bad Blood, I Know Places, This Love, You Are In Love and New Romantics.… Expand
