path-of-my-childhood:

“When Carole King saluted Taylor Swift at November’s American Music Awards as “one of the only modern pop artists whose name appears as the sole songwriter in her song credits,” she was all but admitting that when it comes to choosing Swift’s finest work, she’s Team Speak Now. The singer-songwriter’s third album was the only one she wrote entirely on her own, and it shows through in the songs, as brilliant and as raw as she ever got. Swift settled scores with old critics (“Mean”), old foes (“Better Than Revenge”) and of course, old lovers (“Dear John”), while owning up to fearing adulthood (“Never Grow Up”), to having made mistakes she can’t undo (“Back to December”), and even to kinda-sorta seeing what Kanye was going through (“Innocent”). The latter is still a song a co-writer might have asked her to give second thought to, but we’re grateful to have gotten to hear what it sounds like when Taylor decides not to hold her peace on anything.”

— Taylor’s album Speak Now is ranked as #2 on Billboard’s “Best Country Albums of the 2010s” list (December 2nd 2019)
