Lover Review - PART ONE

I Forget You Existed - This track is really underrated imo. I like the simplicity of the production & the spoken lyrics are so satisfying. I like how she trails off in certain portions of the songs. It really feels like an intro to the new era putting her past behind her and generally moving on from the reputation era in a graceful way. 

Cruel Summer - I like this song a lot, but I feel like it was overhyped. I love the lyrics and the 80s synth production, but it isn't what I expect from a usual second track from Taylor. Maybe that's a good thing? I think this feels like the perfect song for a later half of the album, you know? I think the bridge is amazing, and the chorus is beautiful. It's probably gonna grow on me.



Lover - this song is beautiful and perfect classic Taylor. Every lyric is amazing tbh, and the video is fantastic. I love this so much. 


The Man - I wasn't really hyped for this song at first because the lyrics didn't really flow in my head when she shared, but after listening to it I love them. The song is super catchy and fun to listen to while having clever and poignant lyrics that speak to this generation and generally the inequality she faces. It feels so #feminist in a fun and empowering kinda way without feeling preachy. 

The Archer - this song is amazing and introspective and generally self reflective while also capturing those insecurities you feel in a new relationship. Such a beautiful song

I Think He Knows - I love this song so much! SSers are on crack. The production is soooo good and lifts it up so amazingly. The soft and seductive verses paired with the BLAST of the chorus is orgasmic as well as her sensual groans and its so beautiful. It's so unique too. The chorus is so simplistic yet filled with clever imagery that whips you back into the mind of her first hookup with Joe. "wanna see what's under that attitude" is such a clever and amazing lyric. Turning personality based idea into something sexual (getting to know someone better).
 
Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince - Taylor's lana cosplay is always fun. I love the lyrical storytelling in this as well as the dark vibes and generally atmospheric feelings of this album. I think the political story is very raw and real and relatable regarding wanting to be close to those you care about most during times like this. 

Paper Rings - this feels like such a classic Taylor song, the cute and sweet lyrics paired with the rock-pop-slightly country vibes, it's beautiful. I love the chorus cause it feels like the montage of a cute girly rom com.

Cornelia Street - this is definitely my favorite of the album (or Daylight). I love the storytelling and generally the feel of the song, it feels both hopeful and also anxious. The worries of a relationship failing are really raw and real in this song, you can feel it with every lyric. The storytelling lyrics are so classically Taylor showcasing her ability to tell a story through lyrics, while also taking into account some of her newer imagery-idiom based writing that comes together in one of her best written songs ever. "Memorize the creaks in the floor / Back when we were card sharks, playing games / I thought you were leading me on / I packed my bags, left Cornelia Street / Before you even knew I was gone" feels like a lyrical mashup of all her ideas and styles of the past brought together. 

Death By A Thousand Cuts - This is another classic Taylor song, it feels so romantically heartbreaking in a way. I love the production and her voice, as well as the lyrics. It has some of the strongest lyrics on the album with the way they flow and tell the story. Also I love how it is inspired by Something Great, even though I haven't seen the movie yet. It kind of reminds me of something that would be in Speak Now lyrically, especially with the lyric "You said it was a great love, one for the ages / But if the story’s over, why am I still writing pages?" is such a deep and introspective lyric with multiple meanings. When you're in a relationship you tend to believe it is THE ONE, or at least sometimes you do. But when the relationship ends, what does it mean? Feelings lie to us. Time lies to us. Because a relationship of the ages sometimes has an end, but it stays with you forever. Which is why she's still writing about it despite it being long gone. INTERESTINGLY, this isn't an actual break up song! It's completely hypothetical which adds this whole meaning to the song. "Why am i still writing pages?" is all about DOUBT. She's worried that the relationship will fail and the time she's putting into the story (their relationship) is in fact pointless, fruitless, and will go to waste. It can also mean that you're putting a lot of effort into a relationship that you're worried is already over, but perhaps is only internal and you in fact are internalizing this idea.

CS/DBATC are the best 2-parter ever.

Lover is probably my favorite Taylor album. Honestly didn’t think she’d top Reputation, but man this is a knock out.

We have a payload to deliver to the heart of our nearest star. We are delivering that payload cause that star is dying and, if it dies, we die, everything dies. So that is our mission, there is nothing, literally nothing, more important than completing our mission. End of story.

Reputation didn't even top because of Red and Speak Now though. It fell out of my top 3 with Lover now, which I do agree with being her best.

I prefer Reputation to Red and Speak Now, personally

I would care if I was a reputation fan. But I'm not outside King of My Heart, So It Goes, End Game, Getaway Car, ...Ready For It?, and Call It What You Want so. 

Rolleyes

Anyways, Lover continues to scalp me daily... Cornelia Street is hauntingly beautiful.
