Am I The Only One Who's Disappointed?,
This review is from: Red (Audio CD)
I've been a Swiftie since I heard 'Lovestory' and I was so hyped up about the release of 'Speak Now' in 2010 and even more hyped up this year about the release of 'Red'. I thought, this is Taylor, she'll bring out an amazing album.
And honestly? I'm disappointed; so disappointed. The album in general is a let down for me; I expected better from her. The album is too much of a mix of different genres. I hope her next album is better and she does it the normal way, that's how she does it best. Speak Now was absolutely brilliant, because it was all her, but Red has too many outside influences, which is what's let it down, I think and too much production.The songs I do like though, are State Of Grace, Red, I Knew You Were Trouble, 22, Starlight, All Too Well, I Almost Do and Begin Again. In all fairness, I think the bonus songs are better than some of the songs on the standard edition.
Overall, it's a 'meh' album.
I know I sound like a hater, or a biased fan and that the album must be brilliant because it sold 1.4 million copies in the first week, but that's because she sold out; she went mainstream :'(

I do agree with you but i think it strange you are calling her a sell out when you do like the songs 22 & I knew you were trouble as those two are the most mainstream on the album

Just because I like it, doesn't mean I can't say she's selling out. Exactly; that's my point, they're mainstream, not country. Sure, after months of having the album, I've grown to like the album, and grown to like the songs I initially didn't like (However, I strongly dislike the song with Ed Sheeran. Don't know why; love them both, but dislike that song).
