I already have the cd, but i've been wanting the LP for awhile. Disc 1, side a is a little iffy. Meaning it skipped and it stuck a few times. Also a few songs dont really sound well.

I own the CD version of 1989 and absolutely love the album. Sadly, the vinyl was kind of a bummer. The first time I played the vinyl, songs such as Bad Blood and Blank Space skipped countless times. I thought it was that individual vinyl, so I returned it to the store and exchanged it for a new copy of 1989 in vinyl. Sadly, the same exact thing happened and it skips exactly like my first copy did. I don't know if it was a bad batch of records or what, but I'm totally bummed. I was so looking forward to listening to this vinyl. :(

This album is quite incredible. Taylor goes for a brand new sound in her latest CD, and I can easily say that it really pays off. Every track is brilliant and full of emotion, showing off Taylor's powerful voice and her masterful songwriting. Words cannot do it justice, and the only way to appreciate 1989's beauty is by giving it a try for yourself. Taylor reminds us what music really is, presenting us with a true work of art full of both heart and wit. I wish Taylor Swift the best of luck in her future endeavors and urge any music lovers out there to give this masterpiece a listen.

Miss Swift outdoes herself with this album. A late 80's influenced techno album that transcends the genre and presents the listener with a perfect pop masterwork. There are no real duds on this CD only tracks that are less brilliant than the other songs but still better than anything else out there. With this album she has firmly left behind her mantle of country princess and moved into territory usually reserved for master songwriters. With this CD Miss Swift has added a strong sense of melody, joy and emotion to a musical genre that usually suffers from being cold, clinical and morbid. This is the album that so many artists from the 1980's wished they could have written but unlike Miss Swift they do not ooze talent out of every pore nor can they project the sense of intimacy or lyrical flair that are her trademarks. This CD may be too extreme for some - too far removed from the girl who shed tears on her guitar - but my mind is more open and my tastes more varied and this is album I knew she could produce and I have no problem placing it among her previous masterpiece ' Speak Now' an album I considered to be the best of her generation but now I'm unsure because Miss Swift has decided she wasn't done being brilliant. This is a journey only she could envision as she takes the listener through an electronic soundscape that never gets repetitive enhanced by the concise yet insightful lyrical flair she has made her own Miss Swift is unique in this current generation of manufactured pop princesses. She is the real deal who confidence doesn't come from what she thinks she's done but by what she does. This is why music was invented.

I like Taylor Swift, but this album wasn't my favorite. I feel as if i like her voice better as a country singer rather than a pop on. I find that my opinion is not a popular one, but it is one.
