    How I imagine Taylor flipping through her song choices from Lover and deciding to do London Boy of all things

    she was doing a session in London she had to Kayla

    or she just wants to keep us guessing on how Daylight and It's Nice To Have A Friend will sound live

    Taylor give me my stripped down tour!! And also what I've heard of the album so far fuels my belief that she should also give me my 90s alt riot grrl album with some of the cool lil shouts she does

    She's clearly trying to come for my Queen's impeccable British accent work

    Headcanon: Miss Americana is the older sister of the protagonist of Long Live and the stories take place simultaneously.

    OK, I have spent a lot of time with this album and am ready for my power rankings. I am sure the bottom half of my list has a lot that people will argue with, but I am pretty set with these three tiers. If I were creating the album, I would cut the bottom tier off into bonus tracks and keep it at a cool and collected 12 tracks. Thank you all, goodnight

    Death By A Thousand Cuts
    Cornelia Street
    False God
    Miss Americana And the Heartbreak Kid
    Paper Rings

    The Archer
    It's Nice To Have A Friend
    Cruel Summer
    You Need To Calm Down

    Soon You'll Get Better
    The Man
    I Forgot That You Existed
    I Think He Knows
    London Boy

    where would i be if i was my brain Supporter

    All TS albums should be 13 songs.

    "You Need to Calm Down" is just a fundamentally bad song, imo. Hearing her do it mostly acoustic on that live session really underlined how flawed I think the entire execution is. That in the middle tier and "Soon You'll Get Better" in the bottom tier makes me mad at you, @irthesteve.

    Honestly, this breakdown is fairly close to how the album shakes out for me, with the big exception being that I do not distinguish between Tier 1 and Tier 2. For me, there are 13 great songs here and 5 that range from pretty good to bad.

    I do adamantly disagree with “Soon You’ll Get Better” being Tier 3, however, and I do not care for “You Need To Calm Down” much at all. That one would absolutely be a bonus track for me if I were breaking it down this way.

    13 certainly seems to be the magic number of tracks for me with her albums.
