Taylor Swift's third album is already a hit. There are a few returns to her country roots with songs that chronicle broken hearts such as, "Back To December." Her fame hasn't stopped her from name dropping in songs like, "Dear John." These classic Taylor tunes will keep us old fans happy. She adds a folk sound in melodies like, "Never Grow Up." The plucky rhythm with her soft voice offers a new dynamic. This song is about growing older, and we see the versatility in Taylor's choices for topics within her songwriting. There are some songs on the album that are a bit long. "Last Kiss" reaches 6:08 before it ends. It's repetitive, and it almost sounds like a lullaby. In the end, if you're going to buy this album, you have to buy it at Target. The extra tracks that you receive with the Target version are going to be your favorite tunes.
Taylor Swift is one talented artist. I absolutely love this CD. I pre-ordered it and was ecstatic the day it arrived. I was not disappointed one bit. Her songs are just amazing and catchy as always. Definitively was worth the buy!
