    Ya. She so desperately wants everyone to think 'Oh look, she can poke fun of herself! She's such a good sport!'

    But it's all so artificial.

    Delicate is perhaps my favourite on the album so that automatically makes it a bad single choice. That video is also just dreadful. How are they getting it so wrong this era?

    Happens when someone gets too successful - no-one around to say "no" or "how about this?".

    And they make that fatal mistake of thinking that everything they put out is a guaranteed success. Entertainment by nature is so fickle. You're only as good as your last hit, which in Taylor Swift's case is unbearable to begin with.

    Reminds me a lot of Gaga.

    I’m not even sure that’s the issue here - although it’s certainly not helping.

    It just to me feels like she’s got such a SKEWED perception of herself based on the fact that a few people have had a dig at her since she went full-on mainstream pop. Which is really par for the course when you move into that domain.

    Difference between Taylor and someone like Mariah is that the former actually makes a shitload of BANK so it gets WORSE!

    10 ‘…Ready For It?’
    09 ‘End Game’ (feat. Ed Sheeran and Future) - I still cringe at BIG REPUTATION. BIG REPUTATION. OOOH YOU AND ME GOTTA BIG REPUTATION AAAA…. but the rest is gold.
    03 ‘I Did Something Bad’ - oh my God this IS SHIT.
    05 ‘Don’t Blame Me’ - if Mercy on Me aborted Take Me to Church’s baby, this is how it would have sounded. Reductive.
    09 ‘Delicate’ ISN’T IT? ISN’T IT? ISN’T? ISN’T IT? ISN’T IT? ISN’T IT/ ISN’T IT? ISN’T IT? (08 before the video)
    11 ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ - QUEEN!
    05 ‘So It Goes…’ - this is something Rihanna would have KILLED for back in 2009.
    09 ‘Gorgeous
    05 'Getaway Car’ - overrated af.
    06 ‘King Of My Heart’
    08 ‘Dancing With Our Hands Tied’ - something like this could revive Nelly Furtado’s career. :(
    04 ‘Dress’ - no.
    06 ‘This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things’
    09 ‘Call It What You Want’
    05 ‘New Year’s Day’- mess at queens calling this an ace closer. #revisitGloryplz

    Still a considerable drop from 1989, and her self-referencing tropes have been that much more unbearable as of late but still a good album for what it's worth

    06 I Did Something Bad
    06 Don’t Blame Me

    At the moment I just feel like she can’t really hack being a pop star and she should probably go back to country where it’s a little less hostile.

    A stripped-down acoustic album would be a good move for her actually. An "Unplugged" with a couple of new songs. Like hitting the reset button in a way.

    Well, either that or an album with Tony Bennett.

    Having ditched the album after a couple of plays, the release of "Delicate" has re-piqued my interest. It's not quite at the level of "Style" or "Blank Space", but it's really very good nonetheless.

    yes but bitch did ZERO promo for it hence breaking her Billboard #1 stride
    apparently it was about harry styles (zomg!!!) and she was over it by the time it became a single so she disowned it

    Style wasn't a huge hit because it simply isn't as good as what came before or after. It's an underbaked song. She should've released Out of the Woods instead.

    Er, "Style" is fantastic :oi:

    By the time it gets to the glorious chorus modulations and adlibs at the end, I'm in TAYLOR HEAVEN

    I never got "Style". Much prefer "Under You" by Nick Jonas.

    I've got no interest at all in Harry Styles (though he was actually QUITE GOOD in Dunkirk) but that doesn't make this song any less CORKING

    You've got that
    JAMES DEAN
    DAY DREAM
    LOOK in your EYES
    And I've got that
    RED LIPPED
    CLASSIC
    Thing that you LIKE


    1989 really is WALL to WALL absolute BANGERZ :disco:

    Said no one ever.

    Nick might be a (very short) HOT PIECE but but apart from "Levels", he's really not delivered the goods on the song front.

    But is Style actually about Harry Styles? Out of the Woods is the one referencing him innit? (also the best song of her career)

    Style didn’t stand much of a chance did it? Wasn’t it not available on streaming at the time? And with no promo and not an event video it wasn’t going to rule the charts.

    She has never performed Style other than during her 1989 Tour. It wouldn't surprise me if this bitch DITCHES it on her next tour and forgets about it forever.

    I mean we all knew she wasn't the greatest singer but the combo of her NOX (drowned out under backing traxx & three backing singers BIEN SUR) in addition to her new Beyonce thighs and nervous 'sexy' moves was just a bit too much. And enough with that trademark red lipstick already, it's tired.

    Her hair looked nice though.
