My Red Reviews

Tue, Oct 23, 2012 at 4:26 PM By: InLondonToday

So yesterday I came home from school to a lovely surprise. My mom brought me home the Red Target Deluxe(Thanks Mom!). So I've listened to the album on repeat any chance I've gotten. So here are my reviews.

{State of Grace}
I really like SOG. The lyrics are really deep. But I found it a little confusing. Maybe it's just me… But I really like it! It's got great instrumentals.

Favorite Line:I'm walking fast through the traffic lights;Busy people busy lives

{Red}
Red is probably my favorite prereleased single. It's so catchy and always stuck in my head. I love how she uses the colors to describe feelings. All around a great song!

Favorite Line:Like the colors in autumn, so bright just before they lose it all

{Treacherous}
I really love Treacherous. It's just great. I don't know what else to say.

Favorite Line: This love is treacherous

{I Knew You Were Trouble}
I love IKYWT so much, It's stuck in my head, I even made up a little dance to the chorus. It's so different than anything she has ever done before. Probably my other favorite pre-released single. I love how it has just a pinch of dubstep in it. It's so unique!

Favorite line: Flew me to places I've never been/Now I'm lying on the cold hard ground

{All To Well}
ATW is so mellow, but the lyrics are beautiful. So pretty. Just her way of remember these things and the compoiton of the song. It's beautiful.

Favorite line:Photo album on the counter your cheeks are turning red

{22}
This is the most poppy song on the album, but it has taken over my brain. I love it so much. Whenever I hear it I can't help but sing along. I just want to get up and dance. Plus, it's hilarious. Like, let's dress up like hipsters and who's Taylor Swift anyway? EW!

Favorite line:It feels like a perfect night to dress up like hipsters/And make fun of our exes, ah ah. ah ah./It feels like a perfect night for breakfast at midnight/To fall in love with strangers, ah ah. ah ah.

{I Almost Do}
This song. It makes me cry because it is so relatable to me. It total describes this "relationship" I had with this boy. It's exactly how I feel about him right now. Just so confused and trying so hard to not. It's like Taylor got into my heart and poured it into a song. Thanks Taylor for this song.

Favorite line:I bet you think I either moved on or hate you/Cuz each time you reach out there's no reply/I bet it never ever occurred to you that I can't say hello to you

{We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together}
When will I not love WANEGBT. Seriously when will I not love it. The music video makes me giggle. The song is just so peppy!

Favorite line:So he calls me up and he's like I still love you/And I'm like I'm just I mean this is exhausting/We are never getting back together/Like ever

{Stay Stay Stay}
Stay Stay Stay is so adorable on all levels. It makes me laugh. It has such a cute sound and vibe. The lyrics are funny, and sweet. Especially at the end when Taylor laughs and says, "It's just so much fun!". That part was SUPER adorable and made me go AWWW!

Favorite line:Cause I read you should never leave a fight unresolved/That's when you came in wearing a football helmet/And said okay let's talk

{The Last Time}
This is probably my least favorite song on the album. I'm not saying that it's not great, it is great. It's just not my personal favorite. The guy from Snow Patrol kind of drowns out Taylor's voice. But the song is beautiful.

Favorite line:You find yourself at my door/Just like all those times before/You wear your best apology/But I was there to watch you leave

{Holy Ground}
It's so fast paced! But the lyrics are absolutely awesome! I love this song overall. And it relates to me A LOT.

Favorite Line: Spinning like a girl in a brand new dress/We had this big wide city all to ourselves.

{Sad Beautiful Tragic}
This song is eerie and haunting. It's like a lullaby. It's sad, but it's good!

Favorite line:Long handwritten note, deep in your pocket/Words, how little they mean, when they're a little too late/I stood right by the tracks, your face in a locket

{The Lucky One}
I love this one! The beat is cool! It's talks about how fame isn't the way it's portrayed. But to me it's deeper than that. It speaks to me about the same boy that was in I Almost Do and Holy Ground.

Favorite Line:[/b}And the camera flashes, make it look like a dream/You had it figured out since you were in school/Everybody loves pretty, everybody loves cool/So overnight you look like a sixtiesâ?? queen/Another name goes up in lights, like diamonds in the sky.

{Everything Has Changed}
Come on guys it has Ed Sheeran in it. I was already in love with it, just knowing Ed was on the track. I love the singer/songwriter vibe it has. It's really Ed. Their voices are perfect together. It's just perfection.

Favorite line:And all my walls stood tall painted blue/But i'll take them down, take them down and open up the door for you/And all I feel in my stomach is butterflies the beautiful kind/Making up for lost time, taking flight, making me feel right

{Starlight}
Starlight is my favorite on the album. It's so enchanting, and beautiful. It's the perfect mix of pop and country. It reminds me of Love Story. It reminds me of fireworks, lanterns, sparklers, starry nights, one of the cool summer bonfire parties. This will probably be my song of summer 2013.

Favorite Line:Like oh my, what a marvelous tune/It was the best night, never would forget how we moved/The whole place was dressed to the nines/And we were dancing, dancing/Like we're made of starlight, starlight

{Begin Again}
I love Begin Again. I will never not love it. Just the actions she describes in the lyrics. And goo trick putting it at the end of the album Taylor. I see what you did thereâ?¦

Favorite Line:And you throw your head back laughing like a little kid/I think it's strange that you think I'm funny cause he never did/I've been spending the last 8 months/Thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end/But on a Wednesday in a cafe, I watched it begin again

Now on to the Deluxe CD...

{The Moment I Knew}
This song makes me sad. It's great though. Amazing.

Favorite Line:And it was like slow motion/Standing there in my party dress/In red lipstick

{Come Backâ?¦Be Here}
So I love this. And I have some specualtion about who this one is about, and I'm pretty sure about my idea. I love this, it's so romantic.

Favorite line:Taxi cabs and busy streets/That never bring you back to me/I can't help but wish you took me with you...

{Girl At Home}
This song is fun. I think it is. It's great! The tone is really fun!

Favorite Line: Call a cab, Lose my number, You're about to lose your girl/Call a cab, Lose my number, Let's consider this lesson learned.

{Treacherous: Original Demo Recording}
It's just as pretty as the final recording. Well maybe a tad bit more pretty.

{Red: Orininal Demo Recording}
I personally like the final version of Red than this one, but this one is still really good.

{State of Grace: Acoustic}
OH MY GOSH THIS IS SO GORGEOUS. I like it WAY better than the origianl. It's so pretty and haunting. I love it so so so so so much.
