Album Rave- "Speak Now"

Most of you have heard me tweet about my LOVE for Taylor Swift's new album, 'Speak Now' so I thought I'd do a more in depth review of each song! Let me start off by saying I'm a die hard fan of hers since her Manager sent her EP to my vocal coach when I was in 6th grade, and I really respect her transition from being a sole country artist to a crossover, so I'm not one to bash her new music as being too "poppy" as I think she's talented, no matter what style she sings, I loved Thug Story! Hahha
Here is the song list for the entire album:
1.Mine
2. Sparks Fly
3. Back to December
4. Speak Now
5. Dear John
6. Mean
7. The Story of Us
8. Never Grow Up
9. Enchanted
10. Better Than Revenge
11. Innocent
12. Haunted
13. Last Kiss
14. Long Live

Personally I'd have a REALLY hard time picking my favorites, but I'll give it a try (it's subject to change)

Sparks Fly, Dear John, The Story of Us, Better Than Revenge, Enchanted, Long Live

Honestly....as I'm writting this I'm trying so hard not to put every song on this list. Lets just say I love EVERY song....legitmently, this is the only one of her albums, maybe even the only artist ever I've loved every song on one of their albums.

Fun Facts

Back to December is said to be written about her relationship with Taylor Lautner ;)
Better Than Revenge is said to be her tribute to Camilla Belle...HAHHAHA love that
Dear John is said to be about John Mayer....that weirds me out...was he like...into her? Ew but I guess it makes since...cause its "John" not like "Dear John" the movie...lol
Also about John Mayer is The Story of Us...I'm so weirded out by their apperent romance...he's so old!
Last Kiss is to be said about Joe Jonas :( I'm a JB fan but...TEAM SWIFT!
Enchanted is said to be about Adam Young of Owl City
Obviously we all know Innocent is about the Kanye West inccident...but just incase you didn't know!

Overview: Persoanlly, I think it's her best album to date (though I am partial to 'Taylor Swift') and I can honestly say that each song brings something different to table, not one song reminds me of another, and I don't find myself skiping any on my playlist. Moral of the story: BUY IT!
