      Taylor Swift’s popularity just keeps growing. Although there are those who criticize her “pop” lyrics and her over-romanticized ideals in her songs (this reviewer being one of them when she first came onto the scene), her songs unapologetically unveils her heart’s desires. There is an open, unedited exposure in her music that is not always found in mainstream pop music.

      Her 2008 album, “Fearless” won a Grammy for Album of the Year and Best Country Album, proving it was more than just a collection of songs. The album’s theme was fearless. And in the


      thank you note of the album’s book Swift tells us about why the album is called “Fearless.” Each song has some element of fearlessness. This album has a sense of structure and story to it and the theme of fearless is clear.

      But with Swift’s newest album “Speak Now,” she has taken the elements of theme and structure to another level. She tells in the lyrics note why this album is called “Speak Now.” She says that each one her songs is an open letter to specific people she wrote them about.


      • Her growth as a musician and an artist is evident. Her lyrics and sound has matured even more since “Fearless.” As well as, her continuing consistency to craft her album while boldly exposing her personal feelings will capture her fans and win over new fans.

        Her individual songs are wildly popular. Her debut single, “Mine” went to number three on the billboards charts, but it the album as a whole which is so remarkable. Many artists on the pop scene can claim hits. We call some of them one hit wonders.

        It is the compilation of the album which is the true measure of an artist talent. “Speak Now” reads like a series of letters that tell a story, just as Swift says. And there is really nothing more heart-busting wide open than a personal letter. Taylor Swift continues to show she is fearless in bearing her soul in “Speak Now.” I buy a lot of my music on I-tunes now-a-days, but some albums are still worth buying the complete package, CD, lyrics book, and case and all. “Speak Now” is one of those.
