    The new Red is even bigger, glossier, deeper, casually crueler. It’s the ultimate version of her most gloriously ambitious mega-pop manifesto.

    This re-recording is a better, brighter version of a terrific pop album. Red is dead. Long live Red (Taylor's Version).

    A collection of [new-to-us] songs that doesn’t have a real dud in the bunch.

    In anyone else’s hands, 30 tracks might feel bloated and indulgent, but Swift tempers length with careful curation, sequencing and a respect for what made the original Red such a superb pop record.

    As ‘Red (Taylor’s Version)’ shows, this is an exercise in catharsis. Leafing back through the storybook of our own formative years, we feel it all.

    Red (Taylor’s Version) is a highly rewarding listen for fans both casual and manic, bolstered by its excellent source material and Swift’s steady hand in rewriting her own looping history, with a few thrilling footnotes tacked on. ... Red 2.0 is another towering victory, which should be coveted by fans as Swift is surely already onto the next re-recording, furthering the worthwhile fight.

    The highlight of these is a ten-minute version of "All Too Well," a bitter ballad that was already one of the peaks of Red and is now turned into an epic kiss-off. This, along with excavated songs, are reason enough for Swift to revisit Red and they, not the re-recordings, are the reason to return to Red [Taylor's Version].

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Si bien Red ya era un álbum perfecto, tener la oportunidad de volverlo a escuchar con una voz más madura por parte de Taylor lo hace aún más perfecto. Increíble que después de tantos años de haberse estrando, Taylor Swift pueda cantar sus canciones con el mismo sentimiento con el que las canto la primera vez. Expand
