Get all the latest news, live updates & top stories on Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift announced the surprise album "Folklore" on Thursday and it was shortly released worldwide just hours later. "Her emotional acuity has never been more assured," the Guardian wrote in an adulatory five-star review. "It's hard to remember any contemporary pop superstar that has indulged in a more serious, or successful, act of sonic palate cleansing," Variety added. "'Folklore' feels fresh, forward-thinking and, most of all, honest," NME stated. And Billboard gushed: "A project created in isolation, Folklore finds Swift pouring every inch of her current psyche, amidst an imperfect reality, into her songwriting. We're fortunate that she decided to share it with us."
