Review: Taylor Swift releases greatest album to date — ‘Lover’ (Includes first-hand account)

It opens with the gentle and calming “I Forgot That You Existed” and it is followed by the mid-tempo and crisp “Cruel Summer.” The title track “Lover” is sultry and it has a retro vibe to it. She released the music video for “Lover,” which is the No. 1 trending video on YouTube, and rightfully so.

“The Man” is bold and unapologetic, while her vocals on “The Archer” are pure as the driven snow. She shows her sassy side on “I Think He Knows,” while “Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince” is another noteworthy tune on this collection.

She picks up the pace with the uptempo “Paper Rings,” she is not afraid to showcase her vulnerability on “Cornelia Street.” It features a stunning collaboration “Soon You’ll Get Better,” with The Dixie Chicks, as well as her liberating single “Me!” where she is joined by Brendon Urie of Panic! At the Disco.

It closes with the heartfelt “It’s Nice To Have A Friend” and on a soothing note with “Daylight,” which features her atmospheric vocals.

Lover is available on Apple Music and on Spotify.

The Verdict

Overall, Taylor Swift shines on her new seventh studio album, Lover. It displays her growth and maturity as a singer-songwriter, and every song on this 18-track project has its own identity. It garners an A rating.
