If Should've Said No is in the bottom few I won't be held accountable for any accidental slips of my finger that lead to raised warning levels for those who gave it low scores kink.gif

I think 'Blank Space' could be a good bet to win this, it seems to have universal acclaim!

Quick question: Does anyone know any places to get the audio for the 1989 tracks [bar shake it off + blank space]



This Love Is Good, This Love Is Bad




31. Safe And Sound // Classic Favourites // 6.9375 // Lovers: Jahq [10], Ryan [9.5] // Haters: Riser [3.5], Blank Slayberry [4]
32. This Love // 1989 // 6.852941176 // Lovers: Liam, Joe, Ultraviolence1989, Ryan [8] // Haters: Cameron [3], Blank Slayberry [5]
33. You Are In Love // 1989 Deluxe // 6.7 // Lovers: Billy [10] // Haters: Blank Slayberry [3], Cameron [5]


So we have a soundtrack track, a deluxe edition track and an average album track kicking off the first section. Finishing bottom of thee rate is You Are In Love with a still good average of 6.7 and is taken from the deluxe edition of 1989 and is definitely one of the weaker tracks. Next up is This Love which again is a nice track bur is just average and one of the weakest songs on 1989. This is proven by This Love receiving 13 of a possible 17 votes between 7 and 8. And last up is Safe And Sound [Ft The Civil Wars] from The Hunger Games soundtrack. The song received a great critical reception and peaked at #67 in the UK and #30 in America. Continuing the trend of this section, the song is very nice but is just an average Taylor track which I don't know how it made the top 17 of the last Taylor rate.

Very happy with the bottom two. "This Love" is good but I'd call it the weakest track from the standard edition of 1989 now with "Welcome To New York" growing, which is testament to how great the album is.

"Safe & Sound" was a huge grower, it really clicked when the movie was released. Absolutely beautiful and fits extremely well with The Hunger Games, wish it could be a bit higher.

26. All Too Well [More 11's] // Classic Favourites // 7.882352941 // Lovers: Liam [11], Ultraviolence 1989, Jahq [10] // Haters: Joe [5], Nick, Billy [6]
27. Clean [Less 11's] // 1989 // 7.882352941 // Lovers: Billy [10], Johnkm [9.5] // Haters: Blank Slayberry, Jack500, Josh [6]

29. Should've Said No [More 11's] // Classic Favourites // 7.71875 // Lovers: JosephJamil, Liam, Ultraviolence1989 [10], Ryan, Riser [9.5] // Haters: Joe [5], Tim*, Jack500 [6]
30. Eyes Open // Classic Favourites // 7.375 // Lovers: Jack500, Riser, Jahq [10] // Haters: Cameron [3.5], Ultraviolence 1989, Tim* [5]


I am literally raging and crying that two of these songs are here in this section, including 1 in Taylor's top best ever songs cry.gif cry.gif So as we pass an average over 7, lets start off with that song in her best ever 10, the beautiful, heartbreaking and stunning all too well which despite finishing top 10 in the last rate, tumbles to 26 here. All Too Well is just so beautiful and definitely one of the biggest highlights on Red. it should have been a single and a massive smash. Next up is average album track 2 of 4 from 1989 in the form of clean which is a nice album closer but not much more than that. Clean received 10 of its 17 votes between 8 and 8.5. And I am raging again at #28 because how the hell is I Know Places the 2nd weakest track on 1989 in any shape or form, especially that is below bloody I wish you would. I Know Places went to #1 on my personal chart a couple of weeks ago and was the ultimate grower on the album. That 2nd chorus is magnificent, the lyrics are fantastic and how they relate to the media and the song is a gem and masterpiece that hopefully will become a future single at some point. I can imagine it doing great with an October release and an X-Factor performance. The only song from her 1st era here [surprisingly as I would have expected Our Song to be here] tumbles out in 29th in the form of country track Should've Said No. This was definitely one of my favourites when I first heard the album so I wish it did a bit better here though it did manage a great average over 7.7. And at 30 is Eyes Open- another track from The Hunger Games soundtrack despite not featuring in the film. It is definitely one of her weakest tracks and I don't have a clue how it managed to make it into the classic favourites section

'Cause it's late and your mama don't know






5. Taylor Swift // 7.566666667 // Lovers: Ultraviolence 1989 [10], Ryan [9.5] // Haters: Johnkm [5], Jack500 [6]


Album Highlights:
Our Song
Should've Said No
Tim McGraw
Picture To Burn
I'm Only Me When I'm With You
Teardrops On My Guitar [Pop Version]
Cold As You
Stay Beautiful

This is probably my 3rd or 4th favourite album by Taylor and it is an absolutely stunning country album which I have owned the physical copy of for about 2 months now. The album highlight for me is the gem that is Our Song which is one of my favourite country songs of all time and other highlights include the aforementioned Should've Said No, debut single Tim McGraw, the beautiful Cold As You, great country-pop fun tracks such as Picture To Burn and I'm Only Me When I'm With You and the very nice Stay Beautiful. Teardrops On My Guitar is also a great song and even though the country version is nice, the pop version which is a bonus track gives the song life and is way better and an excellent track. The rest of the album is good but a bit forgettable with Mary's Song probably being the weakest on the album.
The album was released when Taylor was 16 and Our Song was Taylor's first #1 on the Billboard Hot Country songs chart. The album was received positively and has sold over 5M copies in America despite never peaking higher than #5 on the Billboard 200. The album peaked at #81 on the UK album chart but I believe it is certified gold here. Taylor Swift has logged 277 weeks on the Billboard Top 200 as of early 2013, making it one of the 12 longest-running albums in the chart's 57-year history.
This album is amazing and I recommend strongly to buy it smile.gif

I do really like the album but with an artist with a discog as strong as Taylor, it's the weakest. Plus all the best tracks ended up on Fearless anyway - except Picture To Burn of course which is probably my top highlight!

Now go stand in the corner and think about what you did




21. All You Had To Do Was Stay // 1989 // 8.352941176 // Lovers: Blank Slayberry, Ultraviolence1989, Riser [10], Ryan [9.5] // Haters: Cameron [4.5]
22. Bad Blood // 1989 // 8.264705882 // Lovers: JosephJamil, Ultraviolence1989, Acidburn [10], Liam, Joe [9.5] // Haters: Riser [5], Jack500, Tim* [6]
23. I Wish You Would // 1989 // 8.058823529 // Lovers: Billy [11], Jack500 [10] // Haters: Ultraviolence1989, Cameron [6]
24. Better Than Revenge [More 11's] // Classic Favourites // 8.03125 // Lovers: Johnkm [11], JosephJamil, Blank Slayberry, Ultraviolence1989 [10] // Haters: Joe [5], Tim*, Cameron, Billy, Jahq [6]
25. Begin Again [Less 11's]// Classic Favourites // 8.03125 // Lovers: Jahq [10], Ryan, Billy, Cameron [9.5] // Haters: Joe [5], Blank Slayberry, Jack500 [6]


The averages continue to get even bigger as we now pass the 8 mark but there is 1 standout song here, 2 amazing album tracks and 2 ok ones. So just missing the top 20 is great pop track All You Had To Do Was Stay which I wouldn't mind being a single and seemed to be very loved by most people here. Attacking katy track Bad Blood is a pop masterpiece and shows the message of the song very well through its lyrics. The verses are amazing and the chorus is both fun and catchy. I don't know how it made it anywhere near 23rd but anyway by far the weakest track on 1989- I Wish You Would- makes it that high somehow. It is not great and is probably in my top 3 for least favourite Taylor tracks [though innocrap is way worse]. The highlight of this section comes from $l*t shaming Better Than Revenge which is about one of the Jonas brothers and Camilla someone. BTR contains some of my favourite ever Taylor lyrics and it is such a catchy and fun song to scream at the top of your voice. I love the introduction and that chorus is so fun and the verses are great and this is the perfect pop track so I wish it was possibly top 10 here wub.gif And ending this section is begin again which is pretty nice but that is about it to this track and I don't know how it made the top 17 in the last rate either.

So the top 20 has
2 Fearless Tracks
5 Speak Now Tracks
4 Red Tracks
9 1989 Tracks
Predictions?

4. Fearless // 8.65625 // Lovers: Liam, Joe, Blank Slayberry [10], Ryan, Billy [9.5] // Haters: Nick [6.5], Tim* [7]


Album Highlights:
You Belong With Me
Love Story
Fearless
Forever And Always

This is Taylor's weakest album for me and the only one I don't have a physical version of at the moment [I am trying to buy it when I next go to HMV but it will probably be a few months as my local one closed down]. To be honest I think it would be her weakest album for me by miles if it wasn't for the 2 extraordinary singles of pop classic and one of the best songs ever You Belong With Me and UK breakout track Love Story- more on both of those gems later wub.gif Fearless and Forever And Always are my other highlights for the moment and even though it is a fantastic album, Taylor's other 4 are better. This has received a great average of 8.6 and 9 of its 16 scores were over 9.
This is Taylor's 2nd album and was a massive critical and selling success. Fearless was an international breakthrough and huge commercial success for Swift. In the United States, it reached No.1 on the Billboard 200 for eleven non-consecutive weeks, thus setting various records, including the longest chart-topper by a female country artist. It became the best-selling country album of 2009 and the best-selling album across all genres with 5.2 million copies sold. It gave Swift, 20 at the time, the distinction of being the youngest artist in history to have a No.1 album in the United States. In addition to its weeks on top by January 2010, Fearless became only the 18th (of 19) albums to elapse a full year in the top ten of the Billboard 200. With over 7 million copies sold Fearless became the second biggest-selling album in the last five years (behind Adele's 21, with over 10 million copies sold as of late 2012). Elsewhere, Fearless topped charts in Canada and New Zealand and achieved multi-platinum status in six countries. In all, Fearless has sold more than 8.6 million copies worldwide. Fearless is also the most awarded album in the history of country music. [the last few lines are the only bit copied and pasted of all the descriptions in this topic smile.gif]. In the UK the album peaked at #5 and has sold over 500,000 copies

I can't rank 1989 against albums I love so much (the previous 3 are all in my top 30 albums of all time) but I'd say probably Fearless is fourth laugh.gif More filler than the next 3, although it has huge highlights (Love Story, the title track, the songs carried over from the debut and especially You're Not Sorry <3).

No HUGE losses in that last songs section, Bad Blood gets a bit of a hard time and I love Better Than Revenge though,

I wouldn't be too surprised if 1989 is #1. I mean, Taylor just gets consistently better with each album, right?

Surprised "Better Than Revenge" is so low, but glad the filler tracks are being weeded out one by one smile.gif

We found Wonderland, you and I got lost in it




16. Back To December // Classic Favourites // 8.75 // Lovers: Riser [11] JosephJamil, Math, Ryan, Johnkm, Jack [10] // Haters: Cameron [5.5], Joe [6]
17. Wonderland // 1989 Deluxe // 8.71875 // Lovers: JosephJamil, Jahq [11] Ultraviolence1989, Liam, Math, Joe [10] // Haters: Blank Slayberry [3]
18. Welcome To New York [More 11's] // 1989 // 8.588235294 // Lovers: Liam [11], Jack500, Ultraviolence1989, Billy [10] // Haters: Johnkm, Riser [5]
19. How You Get The Girl [Less 11's] // 1989 // 8.588235294 // Lovers: JosephJamil, Blank Slayberry, Jack500, Ryan, Billy [10] // Haters: Cameron [4.5]
20. Speak Now // Classic Favourites // 8.375 // Lovers: JosephJamil, Ultraviolence1989, Acidburn, Johnkm, Jahq [10], Ryan, Math [9.5] // Haters: Joe [5]


An absolute fantastic bunch of tracks here. Starting us off is the track that shares its name with her best ever album yet. Speak Now is an absolutely amazing track and is one of Taylor's best ever songs which peaked at #8 in America. Two album tracks from 1989 received the same score- Liam's favourite Welcome To New York and the coca cola advert one How You Get The Girl. And happily the better of the song is higher as it received more 11's. How You Get The Girl is a very good track however it is definitely one of the weakest on the album. It received 5 10's and is the first song to receive and average of over 8.5. Welcome To New York is a lot higher than I expected and is the very good track opener of 1989. The song sneaked into the top 40 a few months ago at #39. Next up is Wonderland which I don't have a clue how it is only a deluxe album track when it should easily be on the main album. The song received a lot of love here including the first song to receive over 1 11 and another 4 voters giving it a 10. And finishing of this section is the very nice but really shouldn't be this high or in the classic favourites Back To December which I believe is about Taylor Launtner. This also went top 10 in America.
