By Darren O'Neill TOP 500 REVIEWER on October 31, 2012
* The following review appears on the main "Red" page as well but is a review of this version which includes the extra tracks available here on what is the Target Exclusive version *

There are going to be hundreds of reviews of this album out there (and yes, I'm old, I still call them albums) and I know I'm not in Taylor's main demographic audience. First off, I'm a guy. Second off I'm 42 years old and normally listen to things like Irish punk, The Beatles, Springsteen or some hard core country like Chris Knight. I love big band music whether it's Frank Sinatra or Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. With all of that said, I adore Taylor and this new album "Red."

Taylor's songwriting is still in fine form here. The thing that always amazes me about her writing is that she's able to tell stories in her songs, she keeps it simple and more often than not finds one heck of a hook in the chorus. There is passion, there's energy and there is joy. Sure, there are so sad songs, but it seems to my that Taylor takes so much joy in making music that it's hard as a listener not to get caught up in that with her.

After listening to the 16 tracks and the 6 bonus tracks available on some packages I have to say that Taylor's bonus tracks alone are better than what most artists are putting out as albums these days. The "demo" recordings of "Treacherous," "Red" and "State of Grace" are excellent and polished works that are just a bit more stripped down than the versions that appear on the album. It's not really fair to call them demos, as when I hear that word I'm expecting below-par sound and performance. I think it's the mark of a good song if it can be done solo-acoustic (or at least very stripped down) and these three songs certainly hold up well.

I'll try to keep this brief, because my reviews tend to be unnecessarily long and I don't really think that's necessary. I just wanted to share my opinion about the album because it is not only an excellent album but it has changed the way I view Taylor and her music.

Until now, I've never been much of a Taylor Swift fan. I liked Love Story and jammed to that for a while when it was new, and I'm sure there are some other songs I could sing along to, but I was never really interested in her music very much. With this album, I find myself being drawn in and becoming obsessed with much of the material in the same way I am with my favorite music. I'm not exactly Taylor's target demographic, either. I'm a 30 year old man and I tend to favor dance, pop and hip hop. Taylor's country flair has never appealed to me but this album is the beginning of something amazing with her sound as she ventures into new musical territory.

I started becoming more interested when We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together started getting popular. It's a very catchy song, and that's one thing I'm a sucker for: pop production bliss. I listened to that song at least five times a day for weeks and weeks. Then one night my friend made me listen to I Knew You Were Trouble and 22. At first I was a little skeptical, because it's much more heavy into pop and rock than she's ever done before. But as the days went by and I listened a few more times, I realized that they are great pop songs and that I was loving them more and more every time I heard them. At this point, I started giving the whole album a chance and realized that almost every single song is fantastic on this album. I have a CD player at work (I know, so old school! Where's my iPhone?!) and I burned a copy so I could turn it on and just let it play.

Let me just say that I am a massive Taylor Swift fan. I've listened to all three albums and although I thought her music was annoying at first, I quickly warmed up to it. I do listen to an array of other kinds of music though, which are mostly rock/folk/indie/alternative.

There are 3 songs on this album that are in the 'annoying-pop' category. Now, I don't really discriminate against 'annoying-pop' anymore (I used to) because there's a time and place to listen to those kinds of songs, be it when you want to just burst out in song in your bedroom, etc. But I believe the placement of those songs play a part to offset the mostly sad, beautiful and tragic (there's a pun here) nature of all the other songs. Also, those three songs were co-written with writers of most of the big pop singles that are on the radio now. The real lyrical nature of Taylor's songs can be found in songs like 'Begin Again'. I won't be the first to say that I am a little disappointed that she produced those 3 songs because she already has a massive fan-base and doesn't need more publicity and popularity all that much. But like she said, this album is adventurous and she probably wanted to explore her options a little more.

The rest of the album is ace though. There's a slight 90s vibe to the whole atmosphere of the album (if albums could have atmospheres), like there's nostalgia in the air (and in the reverb). And I have to say that this album contains a few of the most depressing songs I've ever heard her produce out of the three albums. Along the same feeling as the piano version of Forever & Always. Some really depressing songs include Treacherous (one of my favourites), All Too Well, The Moment I Knew, The Last Time..
