She reinvented herself, and she did it impressively right. It grew on me, but it's not what I expected, I don't think anyone could expect something like this. I want to know who made this.

Post by: heyheyhey on August 25, 2017, 02:02:26 PM
Liked the song on the first listen.
I think, she also wants to perceived to be "edgy" like katy perry with her last album.
But in contrast this song is not wired, but incorporates horror elements mixed with elegance and coolness.
It's still a risky move. I don't think this will be played as often on the radio as her last hits, since it doesn't fit in the happy cheerful songs category. Also she could lose a lot of her old fans of heartfelt love songs over this, but maybe she has some songs for them, too.

I like RFI way better than the first song from "Reputation"
The chorus is really catchy.

I'm starting to get into Ready For It.

Love the sound design and the topline, the only thing I don't like is the chorus.
The bridge is the strongest part.

Baby, let the games begin  ::)

The chorus is very reminiscent to a 1989, the old taylor didn't die... entirely.
Title: Re: Taylor Swift - new album "Reputation" "... Ready For It?" Max Martin
Post by: heyheyhey on September 07, 2017, 08:54:33 AM
Interesting about Swift is also her new ticket selling approach. Fans have to outcompete each other in buying albums (up to 13 times), buying merch and in watching her music videos 5 times each day, if they want tickets for her show. Her fanbase is large enough so that could really screw typical metrics and help in dismanteling old records. I guess she actually has a chance at taking adeles record of selling 3.38mil album copies in the first week, even when most of her fans are young and likely don't listen to CDs any more.

The drums are quite annoying on RFI.
And I see no connection between verse and chorus, sounds like two independent parts.

Maty Noyes has a new song out, called Say It To My Face. This should've been produced by Max & Ali and then sung by Taylor and we would have a perfect Reputation single.

Ok that is basically the nicely done classic taylor love song. Curious if it will make the top ten. Her old fans are going to love this.

The two max songs did kinda flop in my opinion. Dont know what they planed but they probably should have left a bigger impact.

Seems like only the best of the best worked on that album. The economically most successful artist of our time, with the most successful producers (apart form luke) and also the best mixing. What could go wrong ;).

At last Max and Jack could sound a little bit generic, but overall it's a good album that kinda suits the creative turn taylor took, more electronic, so much more autotune, edgier but not as much as witness. I don't think Max could earn a N1 from here but it's predicted to sell around a million copies in its first week in US, just like 1989.

TIWWCHNT has arguably the catchiest chorus of the album.

I could've sworn DWOHT is an Ali song. Honestly, is there a chance they confused Holter with Ali? The beginning reminds me a lot of Ariana's Touch It.

I don't think so, something about the chords reminded me of True Disaster, not something objective, more like a feeling. And the Outro is very reminiscent to Mitt Team and Bon Appetit.

That's why I don't like the song: the production.
And I thought the bassline in the chorus was a LFO.

I love Max so much!

Again 75% of her voice left on a track. Just like last album karaoke.

BG voices, to be exact.
You're a complainer  :o

It's really bad compared to any other instrumentals. There's little left to the imagination when you have all the background vocals, which are a lot.

When I looked all the other instrumentals shared in this forum I was expecting something like that, it's a shame I can't find it in good quality, it's very different without any kind of vocal arrangement.
And others like Dancing with our hands tied it's basically the same song.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/music/2018/11/19/taylor-swift-signs-new-record-deal-lobbies-higher-pay-others/2054412002/

Taylor signed with Republic and UMG.

"As part of my new contract with Universal Music Group, I asked that any sale of their Spotify shares result in a distribution of money to their artists, non-recoupable," she wrote. "They have generously agreed to this, at what they believe will be much better terms than paid out previously by other major labels. I see this as a sign that we are headed towards positive changes for creators – a goal I'm never going to stop trying to help achieve, in whatever ways I can."

This isn't the first time Swift has gone to bat for artists against streaming services. She previously pulled her albums from Apple Music in 2015 to protest Apple's decision to forego paying artists during a free three-month trial of the service.


Smart move. Props to Taylor.

She left the label that her father owns?

And, don't artists overestimate the streaming income? Spotify lives on google adsense and adsense income is a dollar for 1000 views in the richest parts of the world. 100 000 views = 100 dollars. Not of big help for new artists, but big difference for Taylor herself and for her already rich and famous friends.

I want to be so naive to believe that TS cares about others.

That is weird!
I cant believe Big Machine would not have given her everything UMG promised her. She already got everything (played the biggest venues, no 1s, made more money than every other artist for many years) while being with them. Maybe family conflicts? Or has UMG really something special to offer for her?

The quoted part of the deal has nothing to do with streaming income, as i understand it, it only means if UMG sells their Spotify stock on 'wall street' their artists will get some of the money. This probably means UMG will hold their Spotify shares longer. Good for Spotify?! I think this is manly a small publicity bonus for Taylor.

Well, Big Machine is UMG. And their roster is small, 20 artists or so.

So basically, it's the same thing... with different name.

About the royalties and stuff, she put her catalogue out of Apple Music in order to gain what she wanted, which was a smart move at the time. But I agree with you guys, looks like a publicity stunt.

Taylor wrote an article about songwriting.
Worth a read.
