Jul 24, 2020Swift explodes the expectations of anyone preparing to call her music "diaristic," writing songs from different perspectives while putting her already-detailed work under a microscope. ... A content smile of an album on which one of the world's biggest pop stars, charts be damned, forges her own path and dares listeners to come along for the ride.

The whole album has a complex lyrics, creatively written and she still sticks to her writing style, which she uses metaphors and imagery on each songs.She brings magic and sparks to the tracks on folklore. The fact that every swiftie/non-swiftie that listens to the album has a song to claim or a song to relate to.
