Taylor Swift review
Taylor Swift devotes her highly anticipated fourth album to emotions which she saw in her mind as bright red.
She has two duets on her fourth album, “Red” — one with breakout artist Ed Sheeran and the other with Snow Patrol’s lead singer, Gary Lightbody. Sheeran and Swift make a perfect duo in the song they wrote together, “Everything Has Changed.” The song has a catchy beat that gets the lyrics stuck in your head in an instant. While her duet with Lightbody, “The Last Time,” is soft and slow, in which listeners can feel Swift’s heartbreak during the song.
Swift experiments with new sounds, from the upbeat dubstep tunes in “I Knew You Were Trouble” to the way she leans more toward the pop genre rather than her usual country songs. Country fans of Swift will still appreciate her more mellow songs.
Songs like the hit “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and “Starlight” have more upbeat tunes as opposed to “I Almost Do” and “Treacherous,” which are better suited for lazy days at home.
Swifty fans can pick up a copy of “Red” at Target and receive six bonus tracks or download the record on iTunes for $14.99.
