Taylor Swift – MAG

November 16, 2008
By Kristen Dennison, Katy, TX

If you are a country-music fan, you are well aware of Taylor Swift, the talented singer/songwriter known for her songs about relationships. Swift's new album, “Fearless,” continues that theme.

Swift music displays past relationships and personal stories, which gives a bird's-eye view of her life. “Fearless,” the first track, illustrates a perfect first date, and the story will capture the hearts of girls all over the world. “White Horse” is a slower song that counters “Love Story” because there is no Prince Charming in the end. Girls will relate to other great songs like “You Belong With Me,” “Breathe,” and “Fifteen.”

Although Taylor is just 18, she shines in the music industry and within two years has made her mark on country music.
This album is uplifting when you are sad and brings out the best when you are happy; the music varies with some slow songs and some high energy beats. “I think ‘fearless' is ­having fears but jumping ­anyway,” Swift says.

“Fearless” is truly worth listening to, even if you are not a country fan. Swift's pure voice radiates in each song, and her honest feelings come to life.

See.. I like her voice on CDs, but it's not as good when she sings live.. She's really pretty and all, and she's talented, but not super talented, in my opinion that is

Nice review! I used to love Taylor Swift so much when I was younger, and her first cd will remain close to my heart. However, I can't say that she really is a country singer. She's more main-stream.

I think her voice in some songs is really good, but in others, it almost pains me. I so love her songs though. Also, out of curiosity, who thinks shes prettier hait straight compared to long?

How is saying they thinks she can't sing hating on everyone? Really? It's their opinion, leave them alone. I'm not too fond of her voice either. It's our opinion. That's all there is to it.

Great article, though I must say I don't think she's as great as everyone says. :/ But great article! :)

I completly agree! I think she writes great songs, & I can relate to so many of them. But I don't think she has a good voice at all.

I dont think she is one of the best singers out there. But i like her songs. If someone else could sing them, then that would be great.

I think if you don't like her it's okay but some people do and it's not all that nice to say she sucks and stuff.

I have never listen to a Taylor Swift song that didn't get stuck in my head. I usually like a different genre in music, but there's something about her songs that put me in a better mood when I'm sad, and have me dancing when I usually HATE dancing.
