Album Summary

Evermore (stylized in all lowercase) is the ninth studio album by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. It was released on December 11, 2020, through Republic Records, less than five months after the singer's eighth studio album, Folklore. Evermore was a spontaneous product of Swift's extended collaboration with her Folklore co-producer Aaron Dessner, with whom she had developed a creative chemistry. Swift launched Evermore as a surprise album like Folklore, dubbing them as sister records. She described Evermore as an offshoot of "the folklorian woods", which is an escapist, cottagecore-inspired, alternative music direction she first conceived with Folklore in quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic. Evermore is a record blending indie folk, alternative rock, country, and chamber rock genres, carried by wintry compositions of fingerpicked guitars, somber pianos, lavish strings, and sparse percussion. Impressionist storytelling and mythopoeia dominate its lyrical technique. The subject matter has been described as an anthology of tales about love, marriage, infidelity, and grief, exploring the complexities of human emotion. American bands Bon Iver, Haim, and the National contribute guest vocals. Earning widespread acclaim from music critics, Evermore was praised for its character studies, experimental production, and Swift's nuanced, expressive vocal performance. Reviews regarded the album a sequel or a counterpart to Folklore, and various publications listed it in their year-end rankings of the best albums of 2020. Evermore was nominated for Album of the Year at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards, a second consecutive nomination for Swift in the category after winning it with Folklore the previous year. The album reached number one in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Greece, New Zealand, Portugal, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Republic Records reported more than a million copies of Evermore sold in its first week globally. It was Swift's eighth consecutive Billboard 200 number-one debut, spending four weeks atop the chart, and marked the shortest gap between two number-one albums by a female act in Australia and the US, and the fastest accumulation of six number-ones in the UK by a female act. In the US, its tracks "Willow", "No Body, No Crime", and "Coney Island" impacted pop, country, and alternative radio stations, respectively; "Willow" became Swift's seventh Billboard Hot 100 number-one song and her second in 2020 after "Cardigan", making her the first ever act to simultaneously debut atop both Billboard 200 and Hot 100 charts two times. Evermore was 2021's best-selling alternative music album and Americana album in the US and the UK, respectively.

I'm struggling to decide between a 1 and a 2 rating. I hope that my decision to give it 1 star doesn't stem from an intrinsic snobbishness, but I think I can still ground this rating in at least a superficial logic. Namely, that while this album wasn't offensive or unlistenabley bad, it was extremely bland. This blandness is coupled with the fact that the album is less than a year old, and hasn't had to withstand the test of time yet. I can't find anything in it that I could imagine is particularly new or has "redefined the genre." Therefore, although i'd rather listen to this kind of mediocrity than another 80s synth pop album, it still only gets 1 from me.

Is this a typical Taylor Swift record? If so, what the hell have I been waiting for. Subtle, beautiful, nuanced and heart-felt. This is an album where the songs are the stars, not the singer. For me that's refreshing. The songs are great I would just ask for a little more variety in tempo and musical arrangements (read wish it rocked harder in places). 4 🌟

I don't like modern pop music. This is a fact. Taylor Swift to me seems to be doing the same thing every other pop artist does. Nobody in the entire genre brings anything new to the table musically.

Like, I really hate listening to this type of music. Essentially what I hate about "pop music" is this perfect vocal-style, I like my vocals with some grit or humanness. This just feels so manufactured and processed. Instrumentally it's all fine, it's just pop vocals ruin it for me 100%. I have nothing against Taylor Swift as she clearly is successful at what she's doing, but it's just not for me in any capacity. Furthermore my impression is she has no different lyrical content beyond relationship woes which gets old, but I get it... that's a huge market. The better songs are with The National and Bon Iver but, it all still feels too "pure" for me. I can't relate to it at all. Like, it's like a 1 or 2 on enjoyment but I can't even properly rate this, so I guess it's just a 2 from me. I don't WANT to hate it but I really don't ever wanna listen to it again.

This is the musical equivalent of beige. It's a chicken korma. While it's not actively offensive, I find it genuinely bizarre as to why this has been included on a list of 1,001 albums to listen to. Speaking to my sister about it - she is, apparently, a fan of Taylor Swift - I should be paying attention to the lyrical wit and the musicianship. However - I'd genuinely prefer to listen to White on Blonde, a Texas album from 1997 that's known for being incredibly bland. I can honestly say that Texas is far more interesting, varied, punchy and listen-to-able. I cannot actually dislike this album - that would imply that it caused an emotion other the half-and-half mix of bafflement (as to why it's included) and boredom. Ultimately a nothingburger, I'm finding it hard to justify having written as much as I have about it. Oh well. At least I've listened to Texas again for the first time in nearly 25 years.

Now here's a surprise, never, ever thought I would like a Taylor Swift Album but I have to say, on first listen to this I am pleasantly surprised at her skillful songwriting and musical ability. Highlights for me "'Tis The Damn Season" "Willow" and "Coney Island". I am converted to a "Swifty" after listening to this wonderful album. Justifiably on the list!

If 2020 had any redeeming qualities to it, this listener begrudgingly admits this album was one of them. "evermore" seems to be Taylor Swift at her most balanced. The foundational country elements are noticeable here, and her foray into pop is too. This is a solid album with a rather unexpected enjoyment.

She has a great voice. If she would work with a real producer and some decent songwriters, she could have a real impact on music, not just on record sales. This is a perfect example of having a template for a song and being forced to copy it for an entire album.

This album is excellent - absolutely masterful production. I kind of knew earlier in a vague "not-her-target-audience" way that Taylor Swift deserves more credit than "pop icon on TV", but I'm very glad to have taken the time and listened to this full album. The poetic sensibility is brilliant: faintly classical in the construction and certain word choices, but naturally modern in overall tone at the same time. There are moments where I think this highly creative lyricism gets in the way of the musicality a tiny bit, but that is really the only flaw - and in the context of so many modern artists who provide nothing of value lyrically, I can't really say that caring about the narrative and poetry of a song just a little bit more than the melody can be seen as a downside at all.

A beautifully crafted album, cementing Swift's place as today's premier singer songwriter. Poetic, witty, insightful, Swift tells absorbing stories of doomed and sometimes happy relationships. The melancholy autumnal mood of this album is delightful - the production is excellent. Her prolific output is extraordinary - nine albums and she’s only 32 . So much more greatness to come.

There’s no such thing as “indie” music anymore, at least in the descriptive sense of the word. “Indie” used to mean music that came from independent record labels - and that covered a wide swath and many styles of music. Music from people that didn’t want to answer to anyone (especially a giant corporation), music that had something different to say, music that took chances. Now, “indie” just describes the kind of plucky, lifeless, navel gazing, easy listening quirk-pop that you hear on this record. “Indie” is the new elevator music. I’m serious about this…to use the parlance of our times: “don’t @ me”. That The National and Bon Iver, two of indie rock’s foremost purveyors of bland navel gazing, were involved in this record comes as no surprise to me. “evermore” is basically a Bon Iver record, with Taylor Swift’s vocals (which are, admittedly, very good) instead of Justin Vernon’s “T-Pain for people who buy artisan maple syrup” auto-tuned vocal stylings (though he does dust off that chestnut on the closing track). Maybe I’m just an out of touch old man yelling at a cloud, but a lot of this record is the kind of stuff you’d hear on Lite FM when I was growing up in the early 90’s.

The wiki entry for this one sure is a bunch of puffed up bullshit, ain’t it? I don’t care what sort of “creative chemistry” or “impressionist storytelling” Taylor Swift thinks she’s come up with; I don’t like listening to her pop garbage. This is a staggering achievement in mediocrity, maybe that’s why it made the list.

I am skeptical that we have the perspective to determine the greats just a year later, but if anyone deserves the distinction it's T Swift. She has really made herself into a legend at a young age and continues to prove it. This album showcases her ability to do indie just as effectively as she navigates country or pop. The collaborations with Haim and Bon Iver are excellent surprises. "Cowboy like me" has permanently wormed it's way into my brain since I heard it. "No body no crime" is a hell of a well crafted song. The album drags toward the end, I think they could have cut some songs (like "coney island" "happiness" "long story short" and "marjorie"). But ultimately, the album showcases Taylor's exceptional and consistent songwriting ability and staying power.

This is certainly not my first time listening all the way through. The album starts out so strong with hits of Willow and one of my absolute favorites of all time, champagne problems. Plus we get No body, No crime on this album which is AMAZING as well! So happy! Such a good day! Favorite song: I can’t pick just one, but my tops are champagne problems and no body

I love this sound and this direction for Taylor, but as a whole it still is the typical “love some songs, bored by others” experience I get from a lot of her albums. The aesthetic here is great though, I wish it was a little shorter/more consistent of a project so I would want to come back to it more. But tolerate it is just enough to push it into a 4 for me.

Man I do love Taylor Swift, though this album pales in comparison to her new Midnights Album. Evermore and Folklore were both produced by her long-time collaborator, Aaron Dessner. But Midnights has more producers on it and I wonder if that is what makes it more experimental and interesting. But evermore is a quintessential Taylor album and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Gold rush has such a great melody at: “gleaming, twinkling, eyes like sinking ships on waters…” “Tis the damn season” is a beautiful song about a high school love you leave behind. It really hit home for me. “No body no crime” just sounds pretty phoned in to me. Pretty flat song. Does Hiam just do backup vocals? What a waste! “Happiness” is a tender breakup song. I love it. “Evermore,” the last track with Justin Vernon is the best of the album. I wish his vocals were louder during duet parts and all over the freaking album. In fact, just take Taylor out and put Justin in instead. And while we’re at it, let’s just call it a Bon Iver Album. Nah, I kid, Evermore is great and I can hear the Justin Vernon influence. Let’s not forget that this album was created during the pandemic and everyone had to write in isolation. Given that, it’s a miracle the writing and production is so cohesive. 4 Stars! It didn’t change by life but now I understand Taylor Swift better! Whe!

I wouldn't call Taylor Swift's albums "concept" albums, but many of her albums in recent years have definitely been what I would call aesthetic albums. She presents a specific aesthetic and dedicates to it. Historically, they've also been incredibly distinct, separate aesthetics, divided by time. Here, it's the opposite with her quick release succession of folklore and evermore. They're closely related, and yet not the same. To try to describe it: if folklore was an album about spring and summer, evermore would be an album about fall and winter. If folklore was an album about specific fairy tales told surrounded by clear skies, evermore is an album about experimental storytelling on a grey day at dusk. Ultimately, evermore is a little more mysterious and a little darker than her sister. evermore is a product of a specific time, as well. It speaks to a longing for soft folky music and flannel shirts and gentle campfires -- cozy things that people were looking to embrace during the times of COVID-19. I like a few songs by themselves on this album, but I find myself gravitating to the entire mood of the album. I realize that Taylor Swift is not for everyone, and her seemingly generic dreamy indie pop phase on display here may be even more polarizing. But one reason why I think her presence on this project is relevant is because Taylor Swift excels at establishing atmosphere, and this album is among her finest atmospheres. She has a poetic songwriting style that, in my opinion, shines brighter in this particular atmosphere. In the current decade, few artists are as dedicated to world-building in their music as she is.

I am reminded of the serious critical discussion in the late 80s about whether Madonna was an important artist. Consensus rightly came done on the side of "yes, Madonna a is an important artist". And, late last decade, the same kind of debate arose about Taylor Swift. She joked about not having cred in We are Never Getting Back Together, blowing off an ex-boyfriend who finds solace in "some indie record that's much cooler than mine". Pitchfork, that bastion of white-boy indie music critic cred, reviewed Ryan Adma's cover of the 1989 album before they ever reviewed one of Taylor's actual albums. I think we are at the stag enow when I think everyone can agree that Taylor Swift is, in fact, an important musical artist. Not just for her juggernaut album sales and massive tours, her enormous and devoted fanbase, her growing stash of Grammys and other awards, her massive chart success but also for her increasingly diverse and impressive catalogue. And this album, along with its sister-album predecessor, Folklore, were an important part of that critical re-appraisal. Taking advantage of the break form the album/tour cycle during lockdowns, she dug deep into what she really wanted to do and produced these more gentle folky, cottage-core records. They are something different from the styles she had previous success with, but like Madonna (or Bowie or any number of other important artists) she can explore and change. She still sounds like herself, and plays to her strengths (wordy, narrative songwriting, partly fictional, but with a confessional edge). There was an interesting discussion on the My Favourite Album podcast, where John Oates and the host favorably compare Taylor Swift with Joni Mitchell, particularly the courage to put their real emotions out there in a song (listen to https://www.everand.com/listen/podcast/647477520 from 16:30). An interesting comparison. Are the collaborators (The National,. Bon Iver, Mumford & Sons) chosen to boost the indie cred of the record? Maybe that is a little cynical, but they are mostly sympathetically chosen and add to her vision (with the exception of the singer form The National, whose voice sticks out like dog's bollocks). Certainly, after this record it was acceptable for sniffy white-boy rock critics to admit that they liked Taylor Swift. So, listening to the actual album, she can really craft a tune, and her lyrics have a great narrative feel and the emptions feel authentic (except No Body, no Crime, which I find a little clunky). The production is lush, spacious and unobtrusive. Personally, I'd like to hear a bit more grit in it, and truth be told, I prefer her pop albums, which are terrific fun. Is this a classic album for the ages? Well, it is certainly a mark of a maturing artist with things to say and the craft and resources to say it well. But it really is a bit soon to be calling this out as a must-hear classic. I'm sure Taylor has many more albums in her, and I am fascinated to hear where she decides to go. 3.5 stars, rounding up.

The only Swift stuff I’m familiar with is the cd that contains Shake It Up. This is nothing like that. When I first started listening to this, I immediately thought that she sounded so much like Suzanne Vega. But what ‘s impressive about this is that she is such an impressive songwriter. It’s like she’s majored in popular music & topped the class. Cowboy Like Me slayed me. What a lyric. And she follows that with the poppy Long Story Short. I’ve played this album half a dozen times now & find it totally engaging. I kept thinking : but is there anything as good as Luka or Marlene On The Wall. I think there is (not sure about Tom’s Diner). A great listen.

So my girlfriend is a straight up Swifty, like to the max! I told her that todays album was evermore. Besides being very excited, she told me to listen to it with one thing in mined. The album come out just before we met each other and she associates it with the beginning of our romantic relationship… talk about heavy stuff. As I walk through the gray and dreary winter of Ohio snow is falling from the sky. A rushing river accompanies me alone with trees who are naked with out there leaves. One couldn’t ask for a better setting to experience evermore in its entirety. Admittedly, I enjoy songs more for the songs and instrumental components rather that lyrically. However I cannot deny I was swept away by not only Taylor’s voice but also her words. I always new she was such a talented writer but to hit on ever song and have such diversity is magical. I while evermore doesn’t move me as it may move my loving and incredible girlfriend, I found my experience to be one of a kind and am genuinely so thankful to be alive when Taylor Swift is making music.

I was surprised for that such a recent album was on the list (2020). I like the bands that contributed to a few tracks on the album. Because of my daughters I have a soft spot for Swift's '1989' album. On this first listen all of the songs were okay but nothing really grabbed me. I kept waiting for a hook. A little bit of the language made me wonder if Swift was trying on a more "gritty' image. "Gold Rush", "Coney Island", and "Long Story Short" are the favorites, but this album firmly resides in "okay".

Well well well, she popped up. Look I didn't hate it and the first one was quite catchy. I guess my problem with TS is that I just don't get the hype, like for me its all FINE and a lot of it is just so beige. I have enjoyed her tunes in the past, Shake it Off is a vibe, but a lot of this just blurred in. But I'm not going to give it a 1* just to make a point, cos it wasn't bad like recent Neil Young or Elvis Costello where it made me MAD.

At this point, I think it's obvious that Taylor Swift is a beast of a songwriter and a powerhouse personality. She's shaped her career with sharp talent, unending energy, and sheer willpower. This album seems, on the surface, to be full of the breakup/hookup songs that seem to stuff the albums of 20-something female artists. But, once you stop and listen to the lyrics, it quickly becomes apparent that her writing is head and shoulders above her peers. The song "happiness" in particular is utterly brilliant writing. "When did all our lessens start to look like weapons..." Damn. Line after line, the song is arresting in its depth. Exceptionally impressive, emotionally aware, and surprisingly mature. I never thought I'd give a T. Swifty album five stars but here we are. Completely deserved.

This is an exquisite album. It's a big career leap few artists can successfully pull off even once. Taylor has deftly done this multiple times as if it were effortless. It's a stunning achievement. I am in love with this album. Deep and reflective lyrics backed by sparse, beautiful arrangements. There were so many striking moments where I stopped and just lost myself in the world of the song. Taylor is on an incredible journey and I'm happy to be able to tag along in this tiny way. Now I can unreservedly name one wonderful thing that came out of 2020.

Early entry into best of the decade. I definitely listened to this one around the time it came out as the province was going into another lockdown.

Surprised evermore was chosen over folklore Willow - great start, catchy and I love guitar👍 Champagne problems- One of my fave songs, love storytelling on this👍 Gold rush - this song really grew on me, love atmosphere👍 'Tis the damn season- another strong narrative song, love the telling from the other side on Dorothea👍 Tolerate it - bridge is amazing👍 No body no crime- goodbye Earl vibes👍 Happiness -v bittersweet song, trying hard not to give every thing ticks lol Dorothea- this is a such a cute song, gives me honey pie vibes👍 Coney Island- this is the weakest song on the album imo. Just not a vibe I identify with Ivy- this is a daphne de Maurier bop👍 Cowboy like me- just alright Long story short-a bop, but one of the weaker boos on the album Marjorie- a sister to epiphany, very beautiful but not something I would want to listen to all the time Closure- this song is over hated👍 Evermore- this song is a good Outro👍 Who am I kidding? 5/5

Hands down my favorite Taylor Swift album. Stripped of most of the big pop production, you are left with writing that is poignant and an album that feels much more intimate. Folk-y Taylor Swift is my favorite of her reinventions so far.

This was my favourite album of 2020, so I'm glad to see it on this list. You can definetly feel how Taylor has matured both as a song writer and as a person in her most recent albums. And "evermore" is a great proof of this, exploring more mature and deep themes and relationships. Aside from that, it has a surprisingly good instrumentation for a pop album. Overall, it is perfect.

Siento que este álbum es mucho más oscuro que el resto, tan oscura como puede ser Tay-Tay. Reflexiva, nostálgica, melancólica, habla de amor encontrado, perdido o que nunca pasó. Las mejores son No Body, No Crime y 'tis The Damn Reason.

Blown away by this today. Never really on my radar as someone I should be checking out. The last track with Bon Iver is absolutely superb 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Wow, ok so I knew Taylor Swift, yes - the ultimate pop kitten. But this album... she's clearly off the back of some massive break-up which is not unusual for a pop record, but this is so heartfelt, and has a much softer, folkier feel to it. Amazing!

Just between us girls, Folklore is the better of Taylor's two Aaron Dessner/Pandemic albums she released mere months apart. I feel so strongly about this that I was actually dreading seeing this one show up. And it's a great album! It just doesn't have the emotional hold on me that Folklore does. The biggest difference is Folklore has no skips, whereas Evermore has some filler. So Folklore is a clear 5. My final grade here is based on the fact that Taylor released her Tapestry and Blue within four months, in the middle of a freaking Pandemic. Both albums prove how better off Taylor is when she gets away from Jack Antonoff (although in the interest of full disclosure, he does have writing credits on some of the better songs on both albums). Evermore is so much more than just a collection of Folklore leftovers. There are excellent collaborations here with Haim, The National and Bon Iver. 'Tis The Damn Season is on its way to becoming something of a Holiday Classic. And Ivy is in the running for for one of Taylor's all time best tracks. In a way, I'm jealous of those who come to this album before Folklore. There's every chance those folks have the same emotional connection with Evermore that I do with its predecessor. Time will be kind to both albums, and there's every chance history claims Evermore is her best work.

willow is a banger champagne problems is a career highlight gold rush is my FAVOURITE and personally top 3 on the album Tis the damn season is sooo good happiness is basically a grown version up red, love the divorce i only actually started listening to this album because I saw the HAIM feature an it is easily the best story/narrative song on this album ivy, dorothea, long story short Marjorie is so haunting right where you left me IS TOP 3 ON THE ALBUM, omg it makes me so sad, literally can't stop playing i title track with Bon Iver. I need these two to do a whole collab album. Aaron Dessner really outdid himself, God bless him! this album is clearly her best writing wise, very minimal and not a lot of vocal highlights but i am very surprised that i like and listen to this more than folklore and 1989. I looovveee evermore, gaylor for the win i am not sure what crack she laced in this but it is utter perfection! well done tay tay

Taylor Swift released two amazing albums in the span of months. "evermore"is kind of glossed over because it seems as some sort of continuation of "folklore", but it is a great album in its own right (with bonus nice winter vibes). "champagne problems" is my standout song.

While I prefer Folklore, the sister album is almost as good. Just a fantastic pair of singer-songwriter albums that transport you to the woods... Best work by Taylor Swift by far. Fav tracks: No Body, No Crime Dorothea Willow Tis the Damn Season Coney Island

Not a Swiftie but this album is very well produced and balanced. Same with Lorde, i usually don't like storytelling lyrics but this album Swift doesn't grind my gears as much

Очень добрый и грустный альбом. Да, это не стадионная тейлор свифт, но она не менее прекрасна в своей лирике и аранжировках Champagne Story - прекрасная песня о расставании, прям в сердечко Алкоальбом: разговоры с подружкой с просеко
