I originally compared this to Yeezus, but the more apt comparison was The Life of Pablo. The drastic sound change could have been a disaster, but the artist is too damn great to let that happen.

First listen rankings!

1. Call It What You Want
2. Delicate
3. New Years Day
4. Gorgeous
5. Dress
6. Look What You Made Me Do
7. End Game
8. King of My Heart
9. Ready For It

10. Don't Blame Me
11. Dancing With Our Hands Tied
12. Getaway Car
13. This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things
14. I Did Something Bad
15. So It Goes

It's awesome. Taylor could have made an egotistical mess like Yeezus but went the other way and made it feel from the heart like earlier albums just with a pop sound.

Not really. I'd give "So It Goes" the edge over the worst song on 1989 (This Love) and Red (Sad Beautiful Tragic) though.

I think Getaway Car is my favorite followed by End Game, and ...Ready for It? has really grown on me.

Getaway car is good. Not sure whether I like 1989 or this better.

Very balanced album. No clunkers (Dancing With Our Hands Tied is my least favorite), but also nothing that feels like her best song ever.

Ya, I agree.

I think this may be better than 1989 but there's nothing as standout as Style or Blank Space.

So this album is pretty much a disappointment commercially? It didn't have one well received big hit. Even Future and Ed Sheeran couldn't get the album a third top 10 hit. All the singles have tumbled down the charts.

It's annoying how she thinks she's too good for her music videos to have anything to do with her songs. I enjoy her going all Weapon of Choice but why do it one of the most romantic songs on the album (Delicate)?

Delicate sounds so recognizable and un-special, but on the other hand I kind of fricking love it.

Disappointing era for Taylor on the charts. #BringbackoldTaylor
