Taylor Swift New Album Review

Taylor Swift just released a new album, and you cannot miss it.

A new album by one of the most well-known and prosperous artists in the world was just released. Taylor Swift has already released in 2021 her recorded version of her old album Red and as she likes to call it, Red (Taylor’s Version). Now in 2022, she decided to make her fans happier by releasing a new album called Midnights.

The album was released on October 21 this year and it has been a hit ever since it came out. When it was released, Midnights occupied the entire top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, and it made her the first artist to ever do so. Some of her songs remain in the top ten weeks later. Midnights is also the best selling album of 2022 so far. So, listening to her new album now is a great idea. Don’t miss out.

As a longtime fan of Taylor, I was anxious to hear the new album. I already knew it would be a good album even before listening to it because Taylor never disappoints.

Lavender Haze
This is the first song on the album, and when I first heard it, I knew I’d like it. This is a perfect song to start an album, it really reminded me of her old pop albums such as 1989 and Reputation. It is so catchy, and it makes me want to dance. It has a midnight vibe and feels like the perfect song to play on a late-night drive. The lyricism, the beat, and the flow are just so perfect. One of my favorites from the album for sure.

I’ve been listening to Taylor ever since I was a kid and I’ve always known she was a great songwriter. One of my favorite aspects of her songs is the songwriting. She doesn’t just sing a song; she tells a story in each song. This song is just so brilliant. Without actually speaking the color red, Taylor was able to say it six times. She said all different shades of red including burgundy, wine, scarlet, maroon, blood, and rust. She just plays with words so easily and sings them so beautifully. I absolutely adore her lyricism and this song was beautifully written.

This song is so beautiful and relatable to me personally. She sings about toxicity, self-loathing, insecurities, and how we bring ourselves down. I love how she mixes a catchy beat with honest and vulnerable lyricism. It makes you want to dance and cry at the same time. This song was perfect to be the lead single for the album. It’s so intimate and personal; I loved it.

Snow On The Beach (feat. Lana Del Rey)
When I heard, Taylor was going to make a song with Lana Del Rey, I knew I’d like it. I love Taylor and Lana so much. Even though I was a bit disappointed she just sang a small portion of the song and was performing background vocals, she still did a very good job and the song turned out to be very enjoyable. The way Lana harmonized in the chorus was so nice to hear and essential to the song’s overall mood. Their voices complement each other so well. This song is not only relatable but sad and beautiful at the same time.

You’re On Your Own, Kid
The beginning of this song had a fun and catchy beat that led me to believe it would be a dancing tune, but I was mistaken. The lyrics start off being quite depressing but ultimately have a pleasant ending. I also noticed how Taylor frequently incorporates details and words from her previous songs and albums into her new songs, and this is no exception. She included lyrics from Taylor Swift Debut, Fearless, Speak Now, Red, 1989, Reputation, Lover, Folklore and Evermore. This song was perfectly written.

Midnight Rain
Taylor is so creative and such a great storyteller. Like I said before, in each of her songs, she tells a story. This song is so magical and well written. For me it defines the struggles of someone having to choose between their dreams or the love of their life or a relationship. It reminds me of her song Champagne Problems. It also gives me Reputation vibes. This song brings tears to my eyes, it’s so beautiful.

I personally thought this song was incredibly underrated and I was surprised to find out it didn’t get the attention it deserved. It starts simple but the chorus it’s magical and sweet. The feeling it gives me, it’s nostalgic. It made me a bit disappointed that it was short, but I still liked it. I also thought it was great how she used a sample from her own song, Out Of The Woods, to improve it. She told a complete, deep and touching story in 3 minutes. I’m not surprised she wrote a marvelous song like this.

Vigilante Shit
Honestly when I first heard this song, it gave me chills. She wrote this song on her own, which just goes to show what a great songwriter she is. It gave me Reputation vibes again and I loved it. It’s so dark, angelic, and devilish at the same time. My theory, which I hope is correct, is that it’s a continuation of her song Mad Woman. It would make sense if it was. I think this song is the definition of Dark Pop Perfection.

Another underrated song that didn’t get the attention it deserved. The lyrics are beautiful and sad, but the beat and flow are catchy and happy. It’s somewhat the opposite of her song Mirrorball, in my opinion. Although they are completely different songs, it kind of reminds me of them. It’s a pretty song with a great aesthetic. I personally loved it.

When I first heard it, it made me want to cry. It really reminded me of Mirrorball and this time. I like to think that this song emphasizes the chaotic, maze-like state of mind. It’s a very relatable song for people who are trying to get over people they’ve liked but it’s so hard and they haven’t gotten over them yet. The lyricism of this song and flow are perfect, it is so beautifully written and her vocals in this song feel so magical and angelic. It feels like heaven and paradise.

When I saw the title of the song, I knew I would like it. Taylor is very well known for talking about karma in her old songs and albums. She did not disappoint with this song. This song is about revenge but instead of it being about getting revenge, it is more about trusting that karma will come to whoever deserves it. It is like the saying “You get what you want”. This song is so fun and truthful. Personally, it’s my favorite one from the album and I could talk about this song forever.

Sweet Nothing
This song is so soft and sweet. It feels like a soft kiss on your forehead from someone you love or listening to a lullaby. I feel like this song perfectly expresses what it feels like to be comfortable with someone you love and share all your secrets and fears. Taylor wrote this song with her boyfriend, and it shows us that real love exists. It makes me happy for her and makes me want to have a relationship like she does. This song is adorable.

I think this is her smartest song honestly. She’s telling a story of how she got the person she wanted from the beginning, and they got together by “coincidence”, but it turns out she planned that all along. I love the message of this song. It shows us that if we really want something we shouldn’t be afraid of trying to get it. It’s so smart, honest and vulnerable. This song is so ethereal, catchy and romantic.

After releasing her new album, she released a deluxe version of Midnights, and it had 5 more songs and here are their reviews!

The Great War
Listening to it at first, it doesn’t sound like something Taylor would do. She doesn’t sing many songs like this. But the chorus does sound like her so much. It is so catchy. She’s telling such a deep and interesting story. I feel like this song but could be in a movie or you could make a movie or write a book about this song. The lyricism of this song made me speechless, and the bridge is so perfect. In my opinion this is the best written song on the album and my favorite one from the Deluxe Version.

Bigger Than The Whole Sky
This one is probably one of the saddest songs on the album. I like to interpret this song as a song about healing after losing someone you loved or someone you didn’t get to meet yet or someone you didn’t spend enough time with. I love that she was able to sing about this so beautifully and the message behind it’s so deep and emotional. The beat, the flow, the lyrics, it’s all so sad and it brings tears to my eyes.

This song feels magical. It makes me want to walk around Paris holding hands with my lover, surrounded by lights as I dance around. Even though I’ve never been to Paris, this song makes me want to go there and live there forever. It’s so catchy and the lyrics are very beautiful. Taylor is such a marvelous songwriter.

High Infidelity
Honestly this song is very relatable, honest, and so sad. The story she tells, it’s beautiful and heartbreaking. She writes meaningful and impactful lyrics. I think this song shows how volatile all of our inner moralities are. Many times in life we see things as wrong and criticize it, but then repeat that same thing. She moved from writing about being cheated on to cheating herself.

Another underrated song of Taylor in this album that didn’t get the attention it deserved is Glitch. It has lo-fi vibes and I loved it so much. It’s so nice and interesting to hear and the lyrics are so simple but adorable. It reminds me of her album 1989 and it seems like she’s hinting that she will release the new recorded version of 1989. I hope she does. I also loved how the beat and the flow glitches; it fits with the title perfectly.

Would’ve, Could’ve, Should’ve
I think this is one of Taylor’s most vulnerable songs with a very deep meaning and sad message behind it. This song is for the people, especially young girls who were preyed upon and manipulated by bad people with bad intentions. They had their innocence stolen from them and their lives completely changed because of that. I’ve been through some bad stuff like this, so this is so relatable and heartbreaking to me. It makes me want to cry but I’m happy Taylor made a song like this. It feels like she wrote this song especially for me and I love her for that.

Dear Reader
This is her last song but another underrated song that didn’t get the attention it deserved. It’s so emotional and vulnerable. I feel like Taylor wrote this song to her younger self and now that I’m a little older, I wish I could tell my younger self the things she sings about in this song. It feels like listening to a diary or a personal letter. It’s so beautifully written and the beat and flow are magical. It’s a perfect song to close the album.

So, this was the album review of Taylor’s new album Midnights. I personally loved this album so much and it’s one of my favorite albums from her. I could dance, cry and sing to these songs. Taylor always writes meaningful and impactful lyrics. Each song on this album compliments each other so well as a whole. I felt a mixture of her old albums and it gave me so much nostalgia. I once saw that one of her fans wrote on a YouTube comment section and I strongly agree with it. “Midnights have the unwavering happiness of 1989, the depth of Folklore and Evermore, the heart of Lover and the middle finger of Reputation.” If you haven’t listened to Taylor’s album yet, you should. Her album is still trending worldwide and going viral so you’re not too late. Enjoy it!
