    At the heart of Reputation lies a sequence of songs that chart the rise, fall and fallout of a fleeting relationship and offer a masterclass in pop songwriting along the way.

    I’ll venture to call it her most focused, most cohesive album yet.

    For all its flaws--it’s overlong, and sometimes seems too keen to be meta and self-referencing--it’s full of energy and often makes for an exhilarating listen. It may not quite measure up to the heights of 1989, but whether she’s Old Taylor or New Taylor, there’s enough here to demonstrate why she’s still one of pop’s brightest pop stars.

    1989 fans will breathe a sigh of relief when "I Did Something Bad" kicks in, though, which starts off a string of shiny pop songs that not only feel like a more natural progression from the last album, but improve upon each listen in that sneaky way Swift songs tend to do. ... The moments on Reputation that Swift stans appreciate the most are likely the ones casual listeners will be quickest to dismiss.

    It’s full of bulletproof hooks and sticky turns of phrase. But in committing to a more conventional form of superstardom, Swift has deemphasized the skill at the core of her genius.

    Part rumination on engaging with the pop icon and part deep end even after eating the meal, Reputation keeps the ball in the air, argues for moving forward, even if it’s herky jerky.

    With Reputation, Swift seemingly has the idea that bigger, wider, and louder is necessarily better, but the dopamine rush that modern pop music can so reliably produce never arrives.

Not only is it good, it also marks a great musicalI never thought I could like a Taylor Swift album as much as I like this piece of work. Not only is it good, it also marks a great musical evolution for Swift. Although her sound is very different, we can still see the influences from her previous album in this one. It has a more cohesive and mature sound than ever. Definitely worth the wait. Expand

And that's saying something, because Lorde's sophomore album was very good as well. Taylor took everything people are saying about her and turned it into lyrical gold-as she always does. Buy it. Buy one for your grandma, grandpa, dog, cat, fish, sugar bowl. Literally, everything could use a little reputation in its life. :) Expand

It starts with a high bass song ...ready for it? which is absolutely a great song for the introduction and finally ends with a softer song New year's day which completely focusses on Taylor's voice and no high music. Almost every songs are catchy and are not explicit ones. It's completely blended and her voice finally adds Beauty. reputation is a masterpiece and there's no doubt in it. Expand

Taylor Swift dominates the charts, and this album is yet another reminder why she is considered the modern day, Queen of Pop. With songs including titles such as "Ready For It?," "Delicate," "End Game," "Dancing With Our Hands Tied," and "New Year's Day," in addition to the perfect blend of slow and upbeat songs, Swift takes her audience on the ultimate roller coaster ride- being young and falling in and out of love. For all you Taylor Swift fans out there- don't hesitate, Reputation is an album well worth the purchase! Expand

    This collective is musically and narratively unforgiving from an artist bias. Swift is respectfully credited writer and producer on thisThis collective is musically and narratively unforgiving from an artist bias. Swift is respectfully credited writer and producer on this album, but to no degree of a focussed outcome. Songs lack appeal and the polish that is perceived seem very blindly committed. No advancements in sonics and boring aesthetic, very inspired by the target focus of the lead single. A very weird and bad album. Expand
