Taylor Swift does it again with ‘Midnights’

Brody McClaine, Staff Intern

Taylor Swift released her 10th studio album, “Midnights,” on Oct. 21, and it might be her best yet. 

Swift describes “Midnights” as “a collection of sleepless nights” in her life. The album is perfect, lyrically and musically. 

The first time listening to “Midnights” was a pleasant surprise. Swift’s last two albums were folk albums, so some fans predicted that her newest album would be similar. It was shocking to listen to the opening track “Lavender Haze” and learn that Swift has returned to her iconic pop sound. 

Even though the album was not what fans were expecting, it did not disappoint. From start to finish, the album was cohesive and the songs were amazing. 

Every great artist has their detractors, so Swift is no different. Insider referred to the album as “a disappointing set of songs with scant evidence of her lyrical genius.” But “Midnights” has already broken many records. Most notably, it claimed the title of most streamed album on its debut day worldwide. The original 13 tracks held the top 13 spots on Spotify’s charts with the seven deluxe tracks from “Midnights (3 a.m. Version)” following close behind.

Overall, “Midnights” is by far one of the best albums of Swift’s career. I would definitely recommend listening to this amazing album.
