Ha, yes, I don't just blindly make opinions on albums I've never heard. I just don't like it. A couple songs are really good, but for the most part I find much of it boring and the lyrics annoying and immature.
She's a good performer and makes some good pop songs, I understand her popularity. But there are many, many other albums and artists out there that I enjoy more and relate to more as a male in his late 20's.
Haha, just checking. Mostly when I hear people classify Taylor Swift songs as annoying, they're either speaking more of her radio ubiquity and the overplayed nature of her singles or they are projecting her media/tabloid presence onto her songs. I don't find the lyrics on Red
anymore immature than most of the bands this website hypes: they're just honest, diaristic confessions about relationships, set to highly melodic hooks. That's pretty much the formula for 90% of pop rock or pop punk bands, so I don't find it surprising at all that people around here are coming around to Swift more and that she is, resultingly, a part of this list.
