Re: Official Pop Music Discussion Thread

wow, some strong conviction for her new album.

her last album was good, wasn't anything special though, as i think i only ended up keeping one or two songs on my itunes. but i do like her, and i've heard this album is an improvement. can't wait to give it a listen.

cool and smooth, that's how i play.

Re: Official Pop Music Discussion Thread

I think both Fearless and Speak Now(at least the first few tracks I've heard so far) are fucking fantastic. Then again, I mark for Taylor probably even more than some people on here mark for Punk and Jericho.

The other 4 Speak Now songs that I've heard so far(Mine, Speak Now, Mean, and Back To December) are all great too, but Haunted is on another level IMO.
I'm assuming you've only got the RAR file and havent extracted the files out of it yeah? Extract them using WinRAR

Best album of the year btw, not that there's been much competion but w/e. Had it playing all day. So many great tracks. Not good but great. Better than Fearless too btw I thought.

Re: Official Pop Music Discussion Thread

Yup, after listening through Speak Now, it's definitely on the level and maybe even better than Fearless. Like I said, Haunted(especially the acoustic version) is great and so are alot of the other songs from the album.

And on another note, IMO Long Live was a perfect choice for closing track. Just a really great, heartfelt song.

Re: Official Pop Music Discussion Thread

so i've given Speak Now a listen, and i still went in with no expectations just because it's not my style of music and i didn't think THAT much of Fearless, but WOW. i am wow'ed out. this is such a step up, such an incredible improvement, and a delicious country/pop album. this is honestly miles ahead of anything she's done, she's just gotten straight legit.

i think if someone asked me to make an hour-long playlist of Taylor Swifts best songs, i'd just fuck all the rest and give them this CD. this will definitely make it in my top twenty at the end of the year, it's tough competition for my top ten though but its got a shot.

cool and smooth, that's how i play.

Fuck yes. Concerning the part about her best songs, I considered Love Story as by far her best song before Speak Now, but Long Live, Haunted, and possibly even a couple more from Speak now surpass Love Story now IMO.

I'll give it a listen. I do really like some Taylor songs so im sure ill probably like some on the new album...but i really doubt it will change my opinion that she's a very average vocalist.

Re: Official Pop Music Discussion Thread

my personal favorites from Speak Now were "Speak Now," "Dear John," "Better Than Revenge," "Haunted," and "Long Live."

and it's not to discredit Fearless, i thought that was a really solid effort, but i just feel this is a much more grounded, matured, and even more focused Taylor Swift. she brought heart, she brought emotion, and a little twinge of extra attitude that wasn't as prevalent on Fearless. totally impressed with her work here.

cool and smooth, that's how i play.

Re: Official Pop Music Discussion Thread

I am really looking forward to hearing Ke$ha's "Cannibal" EP

We R Who We R <3

Also, has anyone ever heard her song "Im The One"? It is my favorite song of her's and it would be cool if it was released on this album.

Re: Official Pop Music Discussion Thread

Bought the actual CD today and I think I love Speak Now even more.
