Taylor rave in NYT

GROWING UP IN PUBLIC: Jon Caramanica of the N.Y. Times is equally impressed by Swft’s new album, describing it as “the most savage of her career, and also the most musically diverse. And it’s excellent too, possibly her best. Speak Now is also a bravura work of nontransparent transparency. ‘I second-guess and overthink and rethink every single thing that I do,’ she said. The album touches on many of the major public events in Ms. Swift’s life the last two years—her conflict with Kanye West at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, the sprouting criticisms of her live singing voice, a romantic relationship with the actor Taylor Lautner, rumored dalliances with [John] Mayer and others—without naming names, relying on fans, critics and tabloids to fill in the blanks. The great accomplishment of this album, though, is that Ms. Swift is at her most musically adventurous when she’s most incensed. She may not be outgrowing the ethos of tit for tat—righting wrongs is Swift’s raison d’Ítre—but as an artist, she’s finding new ways to fight back.” (10/25a)
