folklore by taylor swift | my favorite lyrics + review

28 August, 2020

Taylor Swift is her own genre, the best artists are. She released folklore  unannounced last month, less than a year from her last album, and with story telling we have never seen from her before. Folklore has the gentle personality of her Red  album with the unfiltered honesty of Reputation. Although at my core I'm a fan of rock music, I've been a fan of hers since the very beginning and can say this album is one of her best and came at the perfect time.

I am in love with how wordy this album is. I've always loved Taylor's songwriting and her ability to tell stories and I think people often over look how talented she is. A lot of her pop songs are fun to listen to and have different plays on words but this record really shows her raw talent for writing that her fans have loved in Red  and what we saw in her way back when she wrote her debut album. Lyrics are the main reason I listen to music and folklore gave me all those words I cherish so much. As a writer/ poet/ artist, I'm so excited to have 16 more songs to pour over and find something new inside each time.
