I was one of those people who did not understand Taylor Swift-dom. And I’m a country music and K-pop aficionado. I did not think her that special, as a singer or songwriter. That it, until 1989, her latest album. Catchy beats, pointed lyrics and just the general vibe of the album is refreshing. I especially love Welcome to New York. Much have been written about that city, but Taylor captures the moment of arrival so well. I still remember well the moment I caught sight of the Manhattan skyline, the moment of driving crossing the bridge and of walking down Central Park at late fall. Well done, Ms. Swift!
PS: Is anyone reminded of Martika when hearing this album?
