Product Description

Style Name:CD

She is, quite simply, a global superstar. Taylor Swift is a seven-time GRAMMY winner, and the youngest recipient in history of the music industry s highest honor, the GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year. She is the best-selling digital music artist of all time, and the only female artist in music history (and just the fourth artist ever) to twice have an album hit the 1 million first-week sales figure (2010 s Speak Now and 2012 s RED). She s a household name whose insanely catchy yet deeply personal self-penned songs transcend music genres, and a savvy businesswoman who has built a childhood dream into an empire. But the numbers don t tell Taylor's story half as well as she could. After all, it s the intangibles that elevate Swift into the stratosphere of our pop culture planet, allowing the 24-year old singer-songwriter to orbit in a more rarified air. Her large-scale charitable contributions are one thing, but it s in the small gestures the notes of compassion she posts on the Instagram photos of lovelorn fans, the genuine hugs she distributes without discretion where Swift proves time and time again that platinum-selling, record-setting success has not changed her inherent nature. She is awkwardly honest and powerfully empathetic; a brazen superfan, loyal friend, fierce protector of hearts; and one of the world s greatest ambassadors for the power of just being yourself. Granted, for Taylor, being herself tends towards shimmering, gossamer perfection but that s an image regularly blown whenever she dons fake braces and a tri-pony to clown around on late night TV. She s the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at #1 with three consecutive studio albums, and while she s been named one of Time magazine s 100 Most Influential People in the World, she s probably the only person on that list who uses social media to post notes to her best friends and videos of her cats. -- Whitney Pastorek

I don't normally leave reviews, but I can see that Taylor made sure this was pressed properly. It plays perfectly without any distortion unlike a lot of 'new' pressings that try to squeeze too many songs on one record and well they distort like crazy. Very nice addition to my collection. Sounds great. Songs are good. My system is fully custom, so you cannot buy it anywhere. Oh, if you have a properly calibrated turntable, you will know that you're supposed to clean even a new record or it will skip...

TAYLOR'S MANY FEATS:

Taylor Swift's 1989 debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with the largest sales week for an album since 2002, and sold 1.287 million copies. It's her fourth No. 1 album, following Red (in 2012), Speak Now (2010) and Fearless (2008). Swift is the only act to earn three million-selling weeks with an album. She also racked up million-selling weeks with the debuts of Red (1.208 million) and Speak Now (1.047 million). 1989 is immediately the biggest-selling album released in 2014, and the only one to sell a million in total, after only a week on sale. It jumps ahead of Sam Smith's In the Lonely Hour, which has sold 746,000. Incredibly, after just one week on sale, 1989 is the second-largest-selling album of 2014, behind only the Frozen soundtrack. The latter has sold 3.2 million this year. (It was released in November 2013 and has sold 3.5 million cumulatively.) 1989 and Frozen are the only two albums to sell a million copies in 2014. (What a sad state of affair)

The lead-off single Shake It Off debut at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 (rare feat!), stayed at No. 1 for 2 weeks, then got bumped off by another gigantic hit All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor (I enjoyed her performance on the American Country Music Award), which stayed at No. 1 for 8 weeks. During this time, Shake It Off was stuck at No. 2. This week, Shake It Off triumphantly returned to No. 1 again after 11 weeks on the chart. Wow, I don't think anybody is going to "shake her off" any time soon. Swift is the first act to crown the Artist 100, Hot 100 and Billboard 200 in the same week.

CONTENT:

This standard edition has 13 songs. Beside Shake It Off at No. 1 for the 3rd week, the single Blank Space debut at No. 19 on Billboard Hot 100 this week.

This is a very good sounding record. The only thing I could be critical about is the depth of the recordings done in Virginia Beach are slightly deeper and therefor warmer sounding than the recordings done in LA. Other than that everything else was satisfactory. The vinyl itself is very good as well with very little surface noise. An enjoyable listen.

I must preface this Taylor Swift review by mentioning that my motives were harm-free when I unintentionally left out that my view of Taylor Swift’s popularity was inspired by reading up about how others also saw her fame rising (in my previous review of her song “Shake It Off”). I must give out credit to multiple people without mentioning them only with good intent and because I first heard of her song “Teardrops On My Guitar” back in 2007 via the radio when I was living in Florida (I also believe that a radio deejay is endorsing the possibility of an artist becoming famous when they play their music on mainstream radio stations. With that said, I had the chance to purchase and enjoy Red by Taylor Swift back in 2012. 1989 by Taylor Swift is even better than Red even with the musical experimentation into having a more poppy/dance sound. I would most likely check out any music video that she releases from 1989. However, I would have to say that in addition to Shake it Off, I also enjoy the following songs the most on 1989: Blank Space, Style, Out Of The Woods, Wildest Dreams, This Love, I Know Places, and Clean. 1989 by Taylor Swift is best for those who have liked any of her previous music offerings and/or enjoy country or poppy dance type music.

http://diariesofacatnamedvirtute.com/2014/11/18/episode-twenty-seven-in-defence-of-taylor-swifts-1989/

It’s no secret that Virtute and I share a mutual love for Taylor Swift. On many evenings after a long day of writing (or in Virtute’s case shifting around the house looking for the sunniest spot to sleep), we often enjoy letting loose to the epic Taylor Swift album, Red. I dance around the house and he usually chases the “Virtute limited edition one inch mylar crinkle ball“. At the time, Virtute had described the album as “A deep rumination on the fickleness of relationships, a gruelling grappling with the pressures of normative gender constructions, and the small beauties of new loves.” So, as you could imagine we were both anxiously anticipating the release of Taylor Swift’s 1989.

Upon a first listen, I was devastated. The album seemed to strip the personal and thoughtful work that T.Swift puts into crafting her lyrically driven music for a bubble-gum pop that was lacking in substance. The release of the video for “shake it off” seemed to confirm my fears. So after a few weeks I had to ask Virtute his assessment. As usual, he surprised me with his take: “The album on many levels is indeed a move away from the personal, but that doesn’t mean that it is without merit and upon deep reflection we come to understand the new paradoxes gripping Taylor’s life. It seems as though we spend too much time policing the decisions of young women in music as in life. While it is evident that Taylor Swift has always been a mainstream pop artist, it at least appears as though she is having fun with the writing process and sometimes we should be open to experimentation and play in music. Even Kendrick Lamar thinks so.
