Rerecorded ‘1989 (Taylor’s Version)’ Album: Review

Taylor Swift’s 1989 album is still superior to its competitors almost a decade after it was released. This album, released in 2014, represented the artist’s metamorphosis and the pinnacle of her successful crossover from country singer to full-fledged pop star. It is evidence that Swift’s iconic release from 2023 is timeless, even though it draws inspiration from the 1980s and is practically a symbol of the 2010s. The album is still purely enjoyable to listen to.

Taylor Swift exhibited her songwriting prowess and craft in 1989. Her lyrics, which at times transition from confessional to playful and from agonized to nostalgic, are as effortlessly perceptive as her enticing melodies, all of which would make excellent singles. In addition, this album was more developed than the others. Swift has lost some of her sincerity. Rather, she is self-aware and uses a healthy dose of satirical songwriting to bring a welcome sense of humor to the tracks.

Taylor Swift also provides a more complex look at the theme of love, which is the subject of many of her songs. She provided a thorough analysis of Heartbreak in Red, which was a brilliant work, but in 1989, she went deeper. She dwells on the fears associated with starting a new relationship, the nostalgia you can feel for a previous love, and the fulfilling sense of moving on from your past.

1989 was distinct from Swift’s earlier writing because, to put it simply, it sounded different. She was experimenting with a variety of new production techniques, synth-pop, and pop with an electronic influence. Swift’s lyrical ability, which has always distinguished her, was still present beneath the glittering exterior in all of its splendor. “1989 sounds exactly like Taylor Swift, even when it sounds like nothing she’s ever tried before,” as Rolling Stone magazine observed back in 2014.

Taylor Swift rerecords her songs in Taylor’s Version of 1989 with such skillful attention to detail that you almost feel as though you are traveling back in time to when the songs were originally released. However, there’s something almost more enchanted: 1989 in 2014 was fundamentally about Swift taking back her story; in 2023, this takes on a whole new significance as Swift takes back her music as well.

Skyscraper highs were always the hallmark of 1989, and this reissue doesn’t change. “Blank Space” remains as razor-sharp as ever. Swift is self-aware and has responded to the slander with irony. As she sings, “Darling, I’m a nightmare dressed as a daydream,” you can practically hear her wink on the song. The hook of the song is incredibly clever and impactful. “Got a long list of ex-lovers / They’ll tell you I’m insane / But I’ve got a blank space, baby / And I’ll write your name.”

The pop star takes us on a “no headlights” car drive through the most expertly written pop song in the sensual “Style.” With the line “the rest of the world was black and white, but we were in screaming color,” “Out of the Woods” is just as ethereal and as clever as it was in its original version. This song essentially captures the experience of listening to one of Swift’s albums from beginning to end.

‘Wildest Dreams’ boasts Swift’s most vivid imagery. With these romantic but wistful lyrics, you can’t help but dive head-first into the story: “Say you’ll remember me / Standing in a nice dress / Staring at the sunset, babe / Red lips and rosy cheeks / Say you’ll see me again / Even if it’s just in your wildest dreams.”

It’s difficult to identify true flaws in the album, even in its weaker moments. The relative superficiality of “Welcome To New York” has always been a problem for the book; it lacks the clever wordplay and poignant observations that make Swift such a master. Even so, it does a fantastic job of serving as the album’s premiere, presenting us with the full roster of catchy tunes and signaling Swift’s swinging departure from pop rock and country pop into pure pop.

Swift’s song “Bad Blood,” which was released to mixed reviews and never really showcased her songwriting prowess, is still catchy and offers something unique and entertaining (complete with an iconic music video).

This album is especially noteworthy because, as Swift stated at the time, it is remarkably “sonically cohesive,” which is what she was going for. We move from song to song with ease. We move from the evocative and mesmerizing “This Love,” which transports us to a lost and found relationship with amazing vocals, to the brilliantly produced and cleverly written “I Know Places.”

From there, we enter “Clean,” which has always been a fan favorite, and explores the complicated feelings of heartbreak, grief, and recovery through eerie metaphors. Just a few examples: “The drought was the very worst, / when the flowers that we’d grown together died of thirst.” “You’re still all over me / like a wine-stained dress I can’t wear anymore.” “Rain came pouring down / when I was drowning that’s when I could finally breathe.”

The 2014 bonus tracks are up next; all three of them ought to have been on the original album. My personal favorite is “Wonderland,” a song that is incredibly imaginative in its storytelling and that I can’t stop listening to on repeat. Then, at last, we arrive at the vault tracks—the moment we have been waiting for.

The first is “Slut!”—possibly the album’s most anticipated vault track. From the striking statement “being this young is art” to the striking phrase “love thorns all over this rose,” it lives up to expectations and establishes itself as a hit in the opening lines. The song’s lyrics are a perceptive yet depressing reflection on Taylor Swift’s attempts to cope with the slut-shaming she endured during this phase of her career. “If they call me a slut, you know it might be worth it for once,” she muses in the chorus.

The next song is “Say Don’t Go,” which showcases Taylor Swift’s trademark skill in full: heartbreaking lyrics set to a song that makes you want to belt out the lyrics in your car. “Now That We Don’t Talk” returns us to the artist’s more autobiographical writing; in a way reminiscent of 1989’s Red, you can almost see her grieving her heartbreak in the privacy of her own home. You can almost feel the honesty of it.

“Suburban Legends” reminds us of the many genres and sounds that Taylor Swift has mastered over the years, sounding right out of her 2022 album Midnights. ‘Is It Over Now?’ also seems like a triumphant send-off for an album that is already excellent. Swift is once again demonstrating her talent for poignant songwriting, well-written lyrics, and catchy melodies; the last beats and notes sound like something from a dream come true.

This album, which was first released in 2014, was primarily about Taylor Swift showcasing her abilities. Swift was always at her best in 1989. With the release of Taylor’s Version, she reminds us that she is – and always will be – the master of songs that are instant hits but still prioritize lyricism above all else. She takes us back down the rabbit hole into a wonderland of bright city lights, razor-sharp satire, and reflections on lost and found love.
