Taylor Swift - Red (Taylor's Version)

Available:Out of Stock

    Taylor Swift’s atmospheric fourth album, 2012’s Red, was a career-defining moment. It diversified Swift’s country pop roots to include solid experiments with dance, indie rock, electronic, and folk music. The results comprised a beautiful mess of genres and feelings, a roller coaster that saw the melancholic “I Almost Do” followed immediately by the snarky “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” As Swift notes in the message accompanying her re-recorded Red (Taylor’s Version), the album reflected a heartbroken person who was then all over the place, emotionally.

    For fans who devoured the original album, Red (Taylor’s Version) operates as a profound time-travel machine of sorts, a throwback to their own growing pains. For new listeners, it’s a strong introduction to Swift’s prolific songwriting abilities. Her recipe is simple: She takes poignant personal anecdotes and connects them with hard-hitting, universal emotions. The album’s narrative thread embodies the intensity with which a younger Swift processed relationships, identity, and her place in the world—through her artistry. - avclub.com
