    How do you solve a problem like Taylor Alison Swift? How do you catch a cloud and pin it down? These are the questions that have bounced around in my brain the last few weeks leading up to this rate. I've sat and tried to write this many many times in the last few days, and I've largely come up blank, so we’re just gonna wing it, girls.

    In 2006, at the ripe old age of 16, Taylor Swift released her first album, and I was immediately smitten. These songs captured something that I--a thirteen year old gay boy living in the rural south--could connect with on a very fundamental level. She was this seemingly ordinary girl. She had crushes on boys. She got her heart broken. She wasn't breaking any new ground here, but there was an immediacy there for me. She was writing about all these things as they happened to me in real time, and she made those emotions make sense to me. She felt like a trusted friend. A confidant. Somebody who understood just what it was like to be me even if our circumstances are drastically different.

    I essentially grew up with her music, so it's increasingly difficult for me to talk about her objectively as the years go by. Each of her albums has soundtracked a very specific part of my life, and separating them--and her--from those memories is no simple task, but maybe it's not supposed to be. The emotional connections that sounds build can be just as important as the musical strengths of those songs. The fact that these albums can effortlessly take me back to those times in my life is a tremendous sign of their staying power, and I won't shy away from that even if she's an insufferable asshole these days. Taylor Swift took me through those early days of adolescence. The uncertainty, magic, and terror of being thirteen years old floods back to me. Fearless is the rush of all those high school emotions, how badly you want to love and be loved even if it's seldom as perfect as a fairy tale. Speak Now came out just as I got my drivers license and my first car. It's that first step into adulthood. The first taste of freedom, and all the bittersweet heartache that comes along with growing up. Red covered those tumultuous first steps out into the real world away from my parents. I can confirm I was happy, free, confused, and lonely at the same. 1989 in its world-conquering confidence saw me through that whirlwind of the kind of self-assurance that only oblivious kids in their early 20s have. Anything was possible. Reputation is the comedown from all that. When you've hit 25 and realize that life isn't exactly everything you envisioned. It's messy, cynical, and frankly a mixed bag. That said, it only makes you appreciate the moments of bite and brilliance more.

    So how do you solve a problem like Taylor Alison Swift? You don't. You watch from afar with a combination of horror and admiration that you're not entirely comfortable with while she burns it all to the ground. She's talented, smart, savvy, petty, vindictive, and her own worst enemy. I have faith that she'll rise up from the dead. After all, she does it all the time, doesn't she?

    Let's go over some rules before we start rating everyone's favorite sociopath turned country sensation turned pop superstar.

    1. Rate all of these songs 0-10. Decimals are allowed, but don't go overboard.
    2. You all get one and only one 11 that you may present to your favorite Taylor song.
    3. Don't troll. That ballot will go right in the cease and desist pile.
    4. Commentary is encouraged but not required.
    5. Please please please submit your scores in the order we list them. It makes everything easier for everyone.

    So please submit your scores to both myself (@Petty Mayonnaise) and my lovely partner in crime @ohnostalgia BY SEPTEMBER 30TH. That's a lot of weeks y'all.

    Speaking of Stalgy, more from her momentarily.​

    *clears throat as if she's dropping some bars*

    Somewhere in the depths of my overcrowded wardrobe there’s a hastily folded sweater. Two sizes too big, seagulls swirling up and over a blue pastel sky, it lies abandoned. I still remember the day it arrived. My normally bare lips painted bright bright red, hair pulled back into its usual ponytailed mess, sitting in front of the bathroom mirror, hunting for angles. I hate taking selfies but I was determined to recreate the 1989 cover and post it to Instagram. I wish I could remember my caption but it’s digital waste, floating somewhere in the vast cyberspace. I deleted the picture a year ago. Maybe earlier. It’s hard to remember. It’s hard to remember a lot of things.

    Yesterday I went for a walk. I needed to clear my head, remind myself why I liked Taylor Alison Swift. A difficult feat these days, I must admit. There’s nothing like walking during twilight in the summer, watching the sun slowly relinquish the sky. Half an hour, one hour, maybe more. I strolled down abandoned streets, filling my lungs with lush green air. A gentle breeze sent shivers up my arms, nothing like the viciously hot wind that nearly sent me flying out a shop door earlier that day. I was on a mission. Even before I’d slipped on my walking shoes I knew what I had to do. It was time to recreate the moment I fell in love with Taylor’s music.

    Three and a half years have passed, but the memory does not fade. How could it? It was like an electric current running through my veins. I felt completely wonderfully alive. I let the music wash over me, twirling round and round my apartment, mangling notes and lyrics with fearless abandon. Illuminated by my laptop screen, I was also trading emails back and forth with a dear American friend. Despite the shocking spelling, the beyond insular jokes, the nonsensical ramblings of a friendship built upon four years of shared fandoms, I refer to it as my 1989 Live Blog. Much like my sweater, it’s archived. Stored safely in my gmail, only the ghost of our friendship to keep it company. It’s funny how people fade in and out of our lives, temporary visas taken out on our hearts. The next day it snowed. But I didn’t care.

    I was determined to walk the entirety of 1989, bonus tracks included (fifty seven minutes for those keeping score). Not a long walk, by my standards. By Blank Space my mind was whirling into overdrive, tangent upon tangent walking with me. It was frightening clear- not only had Taylor Swift soundtracked the last three years of my life, her music was etched into my consciousness. I’d taken her words and twisted and turned them until they were mine. I weaved them into countless self-narratives, most especially my sexuality crises and the constant ups and downs of my mental illnesses. But they were never mine. I learned that the hard way.

    My mind turned to the reputation era. I ran through a series of choices - the Kanye debacle; the continued Katy Perry feud; aligning with Lena Dunham, white feminist extraordinaire; refusing to speak out against white nationalists - and how they magnified within the greater context of American society and my own white privilege. And here we come to perhaps the fundamental question of this rate. When you’ve invested so much of yourself in an artist and they pull the rug out from under your feet, what happens next? Do you dust yourself off, separate the artist from the art, and carry on as normal? Do you burn every bridge, delete all her music, never give her a cent of money again? Do you hit out against her critics, blind to the dangerous path she’s taking? Do you try to walk some middle ground, owning all her faults in a way she never will? Do you-

    As the opening sirens of New Romantics burst into my ears, I rounded on my apartment complex. I reflexively smiled, my steps grew lighter, I twirled on the empty street. I’d remembered every lyric and hook over the previous fifteen tracks, but it was all building to this. It always did. And then- the past echos, images of myself at twenty-six, twenty-seven, twenty-eight, shouting, screaming, mumbling, humming That One Line. The Best One. ‘Cause baby I could build a castle out of all the bricks they threw at me. And then I remembered (I never forgot); this too is tarnished and ugly. No longer mine to keep.

    As I walked up the stairs my feet felt heavy, weighted down. The remembering always hurts the most.

    One post, y'all. One post.

    It's not even the best song on Red.

  8. Great write ups, beautiful write ups.

    After being a cynical, bitter hater of Taylor for these past 8 or so months, diving back into her older albums this past two weeks has reignited my Like for her again, or at least of the “old” Taylor (R.I.P.). So nevertheless, I’m psyched for this rate. I only know her more “pop” albums quite well but I’m looking forward to dive into her country albums, especially Speak Now since fans speak of it so highly.
    Rem, Island, GimmeWork and 5 others like this.
  9. Honestly Red is one of my favourite albums of all time, but Reputation one of the worst. Excited to bolster the former and tank the latter.

    ‘State of Grace’ or ‘Out of the Woods’ might just be my pick to win.
    GimmeWork and ohnostalgia like this.
  10. P.S this might be obvious but do the /‘s (for example ‘State of Grace’/(Acoustic) and ‘Bad Blood’/Kendrick) indicate we’re rating both versions?
  11. this is the title we picked for the first round? it couldn't have come at an upsetting elimination?

    hello yes i'll get on this.
  12. Yes please.

    No idea what my 11 will be though.

  13. I Knew You Were Trouble of course!
  14. Not that I personally care for it, but shouldn't Ronan be among the extras?
