Quote

That can make Reputation feel impenetrable, leaving the listener to search for the humanity in defiant songs like “I Did Something Bad”: “They're burning all the witches even if you aren't one/They got their pitchforks and proof/Their receipts and reasons,” Swift sings before conceding, her voice doused in distortion: “Go ahead and light me up.” There are fleeting glimpses into a psyche shaped by public scrutiny: “My reputation's never been worse, so you must like me for me,” she tells a prospective love interest on “Delicate,” blurring the line between confident ultimatum and uncertain deliberation.

Chicago Tribune:

2.5 / 4

Quote

Though “Reputation” sounds different than any previous Swift release, as pop music it’s in fact relatively conservative, especially when compared to the latest releases of artists such as Lorde, Beyonce or Rihanna. Even an odd-couple pairing on “End Game” fails to spark. Future, who sounds bored, and milquetoast singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran who tries to rap, sound like they’re trying hard not to upstage each other, let alone outshine Swift.

The Guardian predicting that album will be "ugly". They gave 2/5 for LWYMMD in August.

The Guardian:Reputation may be ugly and myopic in places – making Swift no less in tune with the times than usual.”

That Guardian piece isn't a review though. They're just speculating.

I didn't claim that it's review. It's just a quote from respectful edition.

But it's also not even specifically about the album/songs :huh: It's just about the state of her career at this point when she's releasing the album.
