Best one yet!
By My other name was 'too long'
This album proves that Taylor Swift is 100% the real deal- a talented singer, songwriter, musician and entertainer as well as being one of the bravest women in the business by sharing such personal and relatable experiences through her songs- despite the negative and unfounded backlash from the media and her haters. ‘Reputation’ showcases different sides of Swift, whether it’s with a tidal wave of confidence hitting back at all her haters in ‘I Did Something Bad’, ‘End Game’ and ‘This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things’ (and absolute bop) to a much more vulnerable and insecure side of her in the form of ‘Delicate’ which displays all her recent fears and anxieties over her fragile new relationship and the impact the media frenzy of 2015/16 had on her reputation and confidence for everyone to see. It is hands down the best album out there in the music industry. Plus, after watching her perform ‘Don’t Blame Me’ live on her Reputation Stadium Tour, I can confidently say it is a holy experience and definitely one of the best tracks on the album (drawing with ‘Dancing With Our Hands Tied’ in my opinion)- almost continuing the narrative she started in ‘Blank Space’ about her being so consumed and addicted to her one ‘drug’... love. It truly shows that Taylor can rise up from the dead (as she claims in her controversial ‘Look What You Made Me Do’) and forge a new Reputation for herself out of the ashes- an image that remains true to herself and focuses her family, her fans and her undeniable passion for music.
