Taylor Swift’s ‘Reputation’ is an entertaining mess, but it’s still a mess

‘Reputation’ was supposed to be a total reinvention for Taylor Swift, but all of the least endearing aspects of her old music are still here in droves. “Don’t Blame Me” is fun to sing along to and “Getaway Car” might actually be the best pop song of the year, but the rest of the album does not live up to the standards of a few isolated tracks. Sure, it has a lot of catchy tunes, but it’s much more memorable for its bitter attitude and its laughable implementation of hip-hop and trap influences.
