On Friday, Grammy Award-winning singer “Red (Taylor’s Version)” unveiled a remake of her acclaimed 2012 album “Red” as part of her ongoing mission to regain ownership of her early music.
While the original album was 16 tracks, “Red (Taylor’s Version)” is an epic 30 track featuring musical collaborations with Phoebe Bridgers, Gary Lightbody, Ed Sheeran and Chris Stapleton. It also contains nine previously unreleased songs that did not reach the final product in 2012.
And guessing from the reactions on social media, it’s not always a bad idea to revisit the past.
“I’m crying @ taylorswift13 #RedTaylorsVersion. Freaking AWESOME,” one fan wrote on Twitter, while another said, “taylor swift just hits differently, and especially when it’s red we’re talking about.”
Among music critics, the reception was also largely positive.
He wrote specifically about the long-lost 10-minute version of “All Is Well,” he said Swift “takes his own masterpiece, tears it all apart, breaks it like a promise, shreds his tapestry, and rebuilds it into a new heartbreaking epic, twice as long and twice as crazy. “
However, he writes: “A general first impression is that the more acoustic-based things are easier to accurately recreate without producer Nathan Chapman, than her very first entry into electro-pop is without Max Martin, though the differences can be difficult for the non-Fast ear for to be heard immediately. “
Nevertheless, he says, the collection of nine previously unreleased songs “does not have a real dud in the herd.”
“You hear it most clearly in the spoken-word moments, like ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’s withering put-down’: ‘With some indie record that’s much cooler than mine,’ she writes before adds that “It’s the kind of eye-roll moment that is typical of being a young adult, and although it comes with vim in its creation, the changes in Swift’s lyrics and vocals in those moments are evident in the 10 years , since it was first released. “
