There’s a reason Taylor Swift sounds so confident and cool on Lover, her seventh album and the most free-spirited yet. She’s in love pure, steady, starry-eyed, shout-it-from-the-rooftops love. Arriving 13 years after her eponymous debut album and following a string of songs that sometimes felt like battle scars from public breakups and celebrity feuds—this project comes off clear-eyed, thick-skinned, and grown-up. It may be a sign that the 29-year-old has entered a new phase of her life: She’s now impressively private (she and her long-term boyfriend are rarely seen together in public), politically fired up (this album finds her fighting for queer and women’s rights), and eager to see the big picture (fans have speculated that the gut-wrenching “Soon You’ll Get Better” is about her mother’s battles with cancer). As a result, she’s never sounded stronger or more in control. She calls out dark-age bigots on the Pride anthem “You Need to Calm Down,” sends up the patriarchy on “The Man,” perfects flippant indifference on “I Forgot That You Existed,” and dares to sing her own praises on “ME!,” a duet with Brendon Urie of Panic! At the Disco. Tonally, these songs couldn’t be more different than 2017’s vengeful and self-conscious Reputation. Most of the album is baked in the atmospheric synths and ’80s drums favored by collaborator Jack Antonoff (“The Archer,” “Lover”). And yet some of the best moments are also the most surprising. “It’s Nice to Have a Friend” is daydreamy and delicate, illuminated with laidback strumming, twinkling trumpet, and high-pitched ooh-oohs. And the percussive, playful “I Think He Knows” is a rollercoaster of a song, spiking and dipping from chatty whispers to breathy shout-singing in a matter of seconds.

As always your music is out of the world it takes you to the place where you’ve never been and I’ve been a swiftie since I listen to love story and I can’t express how beautiful this album is as well as you are I LOVE YOU TAYLOR SWIFT
One more thing to mention, I bought this and got it in the best of its condition. I was thinking it of importing from outside country but this seller provided me this at the retail price and I didn't had to pay a single penny extra for buying this.
Packaging and everything was also great.
Thanks to the seller too.
And Thanks to Taylor Swift for providing us Fans with this awesome album...
REVIEW FOR VINYL: Amazing discs and beautiful pictures. Sound quality is also fine.

It was "Red"'s sophistication, and "1989"'s full blown pop sensibilities that triggered my curiosity and made me start paying some attention to this next door American girl whose guitar strings were covered in tears apparently. Have to admit that the transition from the humble country beginnings to popstardom was impressive.
It only took one single to get me properly hooked, and all that masterly executed snake fascination of the last era was indeed pretty sensational. Just like the songs themselves. I was ready for it! Thus, I am now the proud owner of 3 VIP Reputation Tour boxes, the coloured vinyl limited editions of her 6 albums released last year, and currently trying to complete my collection of those lovely extended Japanese CD sets.
Which brings us to this new set, her first following her big departure from Big Machine and the unfortunate legal feud about the copyright ownership of her catalogue. Already 13 years into her career, and closing on her twenties, this millennium's most popular and successful pop princess appears to be trying to bring together all Taylor Swift albums for her 7th set.
Packed with the usual tiny details and hints that only a true Swiftie would be able to understand, and through a different perspective after the anger of previous record, "Lover" is naturally all about love and romance. But, going one step further this time around, the themes of self love, familial love and friendship also provide inspiration for 1/3 of the set's 18 tracks.
Lyrically she remains a small town teenager at heart; musically, she is still keen on trying out new genres and styles. Given her undeniably relatable songwriting skills, singling out tracks would be unfair but there are 4 tracks that I would easily place among her very best to date, each for different reasons: "The archer", "Miss Americana & the heartbreak prince", "Soon you'll get better", and "Daylight".
Released in numerous editions, featuring 100+ pages of diaries entries altogether, amidst a pastel haze of butterflies, stars, blue skies and rainbows, "Lover" is personal and universal, serious and lightweight, important and anodyne, empowering and vulnerable. And, without being a perfect record, it is actually the most perfect record for Taylor at this point. She now has guitar string scars, and I cannot but love her.
I am really happy with this album. Even though I recently do not focus on mainstream pop, I really should. A relaxing and nice listen, hope to see much more of these. However, as this is the vinyl edition, I should mention the physical product instead of just the music. For the music, you can listen on Spotify or Amazon Music, but when you want purchase the physical version of your favorite album, you should decide if you want to buy the CD or vinyl version. And, if you decide not to buy both, then I would recommend this vinyl version with a warm heart.
The packaging has a strudy outer sleeve, good to hold in hand, it doesn't collapse under its own weight. Has a few nice pictures on it (both on the inner part of the cover and one also on the inner sleeves). And even though I always replace the factory inner sleeves with an antistatic one of my own, I still really appreciate the lyrics which is printed with readable black letters and they did not make it "white on pink" just because that would look cuter.
The record itself also sounds clean. As it is a colored vinyl, it has some surface noise, but it is so little that you have to especially pay attention to it in order to notice. I have not measured if it's a 180g issue or not, but even if it's not 180, it sill feels pretty heavy, which is good.
So.. nice album, looks nice, feels nice and sounds nice. I wish all new releases would be at least this good. Would recommend anytime.
