    How is taylor supposed to ever outdo this??? 
    Kinda a line of conscious thoughts or whatever its called, but ive noticed that even through out the standard she was talking about texas/country shit??? What does that mean??

    I really want to analyze the lyrics, the content, just everything! But I'm way to tired to do that, so I'll let my fav youtuber do that when I wake up

    I HAVE SO MANY THOUGHTS, normally in my Taylor Swift tradition (swiftie since ‘06) I write a mini essay immediately after first listen ecstatic about all of my new favorite songs & feeling like ‘this is the greatest thing ever’—but this time I feel overwhelmed and speechless, it’s taken me three hours to think. I love that it’s the most raw, genuine, and stream-of-consciousness that her lyrics and energy have gotten—almost like an unmasking. The standard album is so heavy and melancholic. There’s a lot of growth here even if GP won’t see it because they think it’s “Midnights 2.0” (I disagree). 
     
    While there’s some sonic similarities to past work, I think there’s a new and distinct mood across this album. But beyond that, I think what’s tripping me up is that a lot of the standard album melodies are a lot different than her usual ones. They’re more wordy, sometimes without a neat pattern or catchy melody, almost like improvisation where she’s using the same melodic phrase repeatedly but with new words. I could see why she called it poetry, it feels like 75% of the album is her version of Lana’s “fingertips,” but each with a hook/chorus. This difference in melodicism from her past work I think will take a few more listens to grow on me and let my brain differentiate each track.
     
    Now, on the anthology double album side…. !!! I love these tracks but I can see why she didn’t include them. They don’t fit the quietly pulsating-with-rage-and-depression energy of the standard album, which does create a dark, Victorian-aesthetic cloud in the mind of the listener. However—and I say this as a huge fan and defender of Jack and Bleachers for many years—her tracks with Aaron continue to stand out. I think because she is typically writing to track with Aaron (writing a melody over his very innovative instrumental ideas), she comes up with really unique and interesting melodies, versus what comes to mind when she’s writing with Jack, who inspires more synth-heartland inspired atmospheres. I *love* her work with Jack, I think they have a special personal and sonic relationship and have made many, many, many of my favorite songs in the world, but I would love if she did one full-out album with Aaron, leaning into the soft rock vibes of “so high school” meets her slight twang-rock of “would’ve could’ve should’ve”, for example. 
     
    Overall, I think TTPD is a masterful work that will grow on me by the minute, but I don’t feel ready to pass immediate judgement on it, in the way that I’m usually ready to right away—that’s how different it feels to me. I’m proud that she was able to release something more abstract, bitter, real, and biting while she’s on top of the world and the center of attention. She commented more than she ever has before on her own mental health (as opposed to the personal-inspired, fictitious stories in folkmore) and her complicated and painful relationship with nearly two decades of fame and those who idolize her—in a way that feels so much darker, more intense, unfiltered, and diaristic than her previous efforts. I think this is a turning point more than anything, and I’m excited for what’s next.

    nothing could make me a gaylor, because they are delusional in the way they draw parellels between things. Do I think taylor is gay? A little bit, but I don't think she really puts easter eggs(at least the ones they point out) into her songs

    Peter almost made me a G*ylor for like half a second with the closet line. It won't be a album for the folkmore girlies if there isn't Gaylor fodder, to be fair.
