Taylor Swift’s sophomore album delivers crossover pop-country flare all around. But think more Avril Lavigne than Faith Hill… if you know what I mean. The first track gives the name to the album, and though not my favorite song of the bunch, the name gives the whole disc a certain energy. The album really picks up on White Horse, which for some reason reminded me of Faith Hill’s Fireflies, a beautiful ballad with fairytale symbols overlapping with reality.

Despite the album being not that memorable, I believe Taylor Swift might have a lasting career, if she makes the right choices. Her voice will mature, her stage presence will improve, and her album decision making will better the chances of making an even more remarkable record later.

Rating: ★★★½☆

Here. There. Everywhere. Punished soul that usually watches what nobody wants, but sometimes gets lucky.

    I was kind of disappointed with her album Speak Now, which seemed kind of bland and gimmicky — are we really listening to her to see what dirt she’s got on the next celebrity she’s going to date?

    I hope she gets some sense thrown in there.

    Fifteen, Hey Stephen, White Horse and You Belong with Me are quite good on this one, it will be sad to see her go as another fame-hungry young starlet.
