WELCOME TO NEW YORK TIMES: In the first in-depth review of Taylor Swift’s 1989, New York Times critic Jon Carmanica praises her “expertly constructed” songs, describing the record as “breezily effective.” Further, Carmanica notes, her refusal to cop the rhythm-driven sound du jour (the title year is her stylistic point of departure) enables her to work on her own pop plane. “By making pop with almost no contemporary references,” he writes, “Ms. Swift is aiming somewhere even higher, a mode of timelessness that few true pop stars — aside from, say, Adele […] — even bother aspiring to.” There’s a lot more to the piece, which you’ll find here.
