Taylor Swift - reputation (6th Album)

Discussion in 'Pop & Justice' started by sexercise, May 5, 2017.

  1. The video is good-ish to me but I miss Taylor having fun with her music.

    Everything is just so bloody serious this era so far that I actually feel drained watching the videos/performances.

    Bring back Taylor who injected life in to her eras.

    Oh wait, she's dead. I forgot.

  2. I mean - me. But I don't necessarily wish her well, so...

    All true.

    I honestly just find her... utterly repulsive. The video does nothing to change that.

  4. “End Game” is still the cute Fifth Harmony summer jawn that wasn’t.

  5. Which should come as zero surprise for an artist who built her following on country-pop with emotional depth and clever turns of phrase.

    This new sound and image is effectively antimatter from that standpoint. No one's gonna be crying in their bedroom at two in the morning to End Game and LWYMMD. Well...not for the right reasons at least.

    It's still better than anything on Reputation [​IMG]
  10. No song in their discography is touching Delicate or Getaway Car but my post was also a joke ddd.

  11. Down is a passable basic bop that is an abysmal single choice and is pretty much the reason why their career is borderline finished. Wasting the minimal hype they had on a shitty retread of their previous hit with no consistent promo & bizarre handling by their label was fucking stupid.

    He Like That is a bop that would work well on radio. It would've been perfect as a lead single.
    There are at least 2 songs on Reputation that are better than anything Fifth Harmony ever has & will release and that's the tea.

    Edit: Nn I thought this was happening in the 5H thread. Excuse the mini rant.

  12. Jesus christ are we actually comparing 5H to Delicate and Getaway Car
  13. I really dislike Taylor, but Down is by no means better than the strongest stuff on reputation.

  14. I thought the video was glossy and lush. Watching it made me wanna pour myself a mimosa, wear my best clothes and meet my hunties.

    Im also quite fond of the song now. I dig the steady percussion and mid 00's urban vibe shes serving. Reminds me a little of 'Umbrella'. I also don't hate Future's verse... or Ed's.

  15. Let's not pretend Work From Home isn't better than Taylor's entire discography. Heck, Down is better thank anything she's recorded outside of 1989, but this is not the thread for that.

    I think my issue with this video is that the joy and verve exuded in things like 22 and Blank Page that made them so much fun is completely absent here. With the first two videos of this era, I figured she was playing a character, so it was part of the role. With End Game, it's just Taylor being Taylor, and I've come to realize what a dull concept that ends up being for a video.

    *Reads posts about 1989 being super popular because of its upbeat 'Carly Rae' songs.*

    *Reminds self that Emotion, the album that made Carly Carly, came after 1989, and people posted about it being the album 1989 wanted to be.*

    *Oddly remembers Blank Space, which was compared to Lorde, and Bad Blood featuring Kendrick Lamar, being the two biggest hits from 1989, not Style or Out of the Woods, the more classic pop tunes.*

    *Thinks Taylor might have remembered these details as well.*

    *Posits End Game, with its sparse chorus vocals, big hooks, and features is a calculation based on hits from 1989.*

    *Sees dozens of posts saying what is she doing, why is she doing this, she's lost it, she's repulsive.*

    *Utterly confused.*

    Quick, @BEST FICTION, make a Lotus' impact joke.

  18. (Would it be a more unpopular opinion if I replied that Down was one of the worst songs of 2017, or that 1989 is Taylor’s 4th best album)

  19. Definitely that 1989 is Taylor's 4th best album. Opinions on Down are pretty divided on this forum.
  20. A true conundrum.

    What I can tell is you is I don't agree with your taste in the slightest.
