Best Taylor Swift Albums

The Top Ten

1 Speak Now Speak Now Product Image

Speak Now was the first album by Taylor that I bought and I got into it immediately. I feel like her songwriting was so beautiful and on point and even though that is the case for all of Taylor's albums, as a fan, you know that lyrically this is her best one. Every single song on this record sounds like it could be a poem and every line hits you harder than the one before. Obviously this isn't an album you would listen to on a night out with your friends (like "1989" or some songs off "Red"), but if you just sit down and listen to this masterpiece, you would know what I'm talking about. As if that is not enough to prove that this is the best work she's done, may I add the fact that she wrote this album ALL BY HERSELF!

Best lyrics (in my opinion and to be honest, there are only very few selected ones because, as I said, the whole album is flawless):

"But I took your matches before fire could catch me so don't look now, I'm shining like fireworks over your sad empty town" ...more

Speak Now is the kind of album you listen to when you want to listen to music, but don't know what. (This is NOT an insult). It's just perfect for whenever, wherever or however your feeling! The song is really good too, and if she actually did THAT at a wedding, she has guts! (Not saying she doesn't it she didn't)

I cast my vote for speak now (even though I think RED is the best) because it's a lyrical masterpiece she wrote ALL BY HERSELF at 18-19yrs. I mean this was the album that made me crown her a LYRICAL GENIUS,on her other albums I could always select songs which are the best lyrically but on this I just couldn't even now in 2016,they were all brilliantly written with mind-blowing lines my favorite being 'I've never heard silence quite this loud' from The Story of Us, I mean how can a teenager come up with that,till this day it blows my mind. When talking to my friends who aren't exactly fans I go with RED as the best because it is more mature(we are in our 20's) but SPEAK NOW is just GENIUS and I'll always vote it her best even though at my age now,RED is more of my speed and taste.

This is my favorite Taylor Swift album. The magical and fantasy theme of the whole thing perfectly describes the feeling of love like no other. Enchanted is the most painfully relatable song I have EVER heard. Sparks Fly never fails to fire me up and get my adrenaline rushing. And Back To December is just emotional and heartfelt...every song seems to leave its own impact on the listener.

2 Red Red Product Image

RED has to be one of the best albums made in the 2010s. With catchy hit songs like "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together", "22" and "I Knew You Were Trouble" it has become clear that Taylor does not want to keep doing the same thing over and over again and change things up a bit. However, there are still many songs that show off her songwriting skills and prove that though she keeps things exciting by trying out new kinds of styles/genres of songs (before mentioned), she's still the same songwriter; State of Grace, Red, Treacherous, All Too Well & Begin Again are only some examples of that.
And you can't deny that this album contains many of her best lyrics she's written (including myself as a fan of hers for almost five years now), like
"You call me up again just to break me like a promise, so casually cruel in the name of being honest" (All Too Well)

Overall, RED is simply a roller coaster of emotions and makes you feel something, which I personally think is ...more

RED is one if the best albums ever made in music history. All of Taylor's albums are masterpieces that most artists can only dream about, RED beats them all. Personally RED gives me a post-apocalypse feeling. It makes me feel everything you can about love. It's like when a mother is telling her daughter/son about love. It perfectly tells what love is, what loss is and what hope is. My personal favourites are Holy Ground, Everything Has Changed (it always makes me feel like mayve someday I'll be in love and the happiest person on earth), The Last Time, Begin Again and Come Back... Be Here and basically the whole album! I just wanna thank Taylor for making such masterpieces as RED, Speak Now, Fearless, 1989 and Taylor Swift. Taylor will always be my favourite artist, no matter what. Taylor please never stop making music!

I gotta admit, that before I listened to this album in depth, I wasn't so into it. I'd heard the more popular songs like 'Red', 'We're Never Getting Back Together', 'I Knew You Were Trouble', and etc, and I expected the entire album to be bubblegum pop and crap.

But as I became a more indulgent Swiftie, I noticed some of the lesser known songs from Red that make my heart ache, like Treacherous, Sad Beautiful Tragic, All Too Well, Stay Stay Stay, and can I just say the entire album?

I listened to it on repeat until all the lyrics were ingrained in my heart and I cried until I felt like a new person.

This album is simply amazing. It is lyrically genius, combining the simplest of memories and snippets of life and intertwining them with heartfelt emotion and poetry that made me see the world in a new light. This is Taylor at her best: this was the album of her career. I am proud of her no matter what she does, but I have to say that we're all going to look back on ...more

The red era is actually the time I started really listening to taylor swift and I personally think it's her best album for a lot of reasons.

First of all, red has her best lyrical song ever, that is All Too Well and I think most of the fans will agree. Also, there is the masterpieces State of Grace, Red and Treacherous which are just pure poetry. Red is also rich melody wise, there is the very country stay stay stay, and her personal revolutionary sound in IKYWT, and while that inconsistency in the orientation of this album was the reason she didn't win a grammy, for me as a fan it was the best feature of the album since if felt like the best of two worlds - taylor kind of lost between the passionate, fragile girl to a self-empowered woman not afraid to embrace her cliche sweet image and her inner diva at the same time.

a lso, something about red that makes it so pure and raw and full of emotion and while that is also present in speak now, it is more mature and warm in ...more

3 1989 1989 Product Image

1989 is an example of what makes a good pop album, even now that mostly everything has been tried out before. It also marks the most significant change in Taylor's music, since it is in fact her first official pop album. However, you would not expect this to be her first, since it sounds so perfectly done. I myself, as a long-time fan of hers, was a little skeptical at first, but when listening it to the first time, I knew this was a masterpiece all along. Her lyrics are still as meaningful as they've always been, even when they're not her most personal songs to date. Lyrics like "When you're young you just run but you come back to what you need", "They are the hunters, we are the foxes and we RUN", "You're still all over me like a wine-stained dress I can't wear anymore, hung my head as I lost the war and the sky turned black like a perfect storm" really prove this.

Additionally, it is the first album by Taylor that made me dance crazy in my room all night long! :)

Some ...more

To me, 1989 isn't just an album. It's a masterpiece. All of her albums are excellently written but 1989 has the kind of lyrics that you need to analyze to understand the deeper meaning. It has so many deep meanings and I'd be so happy to explain every single one of them because I want to show everyone how good of an album it is. And the melodies? Perfect melodies, catchy but not repetitive. Which means perfect of course (for me and many others). My favorite track from 1989 has to be "Style".

Ofc this is the finest until now by taylor and it has to be #1.
Nothing can compete this album for times to comes. I think taylor herself cannot make one more album like this one. I can't hate even one single song from this album even if I try to hate.

This album has plenty of great songs by Taylor. Personally, it was one of my favorite albums from last year. Wildest Dreams was just amazing!

4 Fearless Fearless Product Image

Fearless has to be up high since it is the album that made her famous - which is not undeserved! This album is the perfect mix of country-pop and it makes me feel nostalgic for some reason. I think that this album resembles their high school years for many people, especially girls, because of songs like "Love Story", "Fifteen" or "Fearless" - all dealing with topics like forbidden love, realizing the mistakes you made in the past but having learned from them or simply, first kiss/first love.
Love her voice, her lyrics, her melodies on this record!

This album is my favorite. With cute, catchy, lyrically amazing songs like Jump Then Fall, Breathe, Fearless, and others, this Album I can truly never get over. Speak Now is my second favorite, and then Taylor Swift, 1989, and Red. Red started delving into pop already and I didn't really like 22, We're Never Getting Back Together, or I Knew You Were Trouble as much as I liked any of her songs, so that's probably why I didn't likes the album as much, but I love every song from Fearless to the death and this is the most amazing album ever. enough said.

First pop-ish kind of song I've ever heard and learned is Love Story. Still love her songs now, but Fearless is in my opinion, the best, with Speak Now a close second.

I love fearless, Taylor swift, and speak now, red, not so much 1989 though

5 Reputation Reputation Product Image

Reputation, the second pop-focused album by my favorite artist Taylor Swift, is a real masterpiece. Reputation is different from all of her previous masterpieces. The album's new style got me screaming the lyrics on November 10, 2017. It's an album which deserved much better. With songs like: "...Ready For It? ", "I Did Something Bad", "Don't Blame Me", "Getaway Car", "Delicate" and others, it's the best album ever made. In this album she shuts all that is said about and declares that her real version is a lot different than the version created by MEDIA. Taylor Swift's best lyrics are fitted in the right place and at the right time. The song "So It Goes..." is really a very catchy song but I don't understand why everyone skip it many-many times. Best album ever made, and deserved more nominations in the 61st Annual Grammy Awards. This album will be my "Album of the Year", "Delicate" will be my "Song Of The Year". Enough explanation given.

THIS ALBUM IS WAY BETTER THAN DEBUT ...more

I absolutely ADORE her new style! All the songs are amazing, but I have a few favorites. "Getaway Car" (probably my #1 favorite) made me feel like I was being chased by the police in a car without a roof at night, screaming with laughter and feeling free. "Gorgeous" describes my crush exactly, and the run away with me line from "Call It What You Want" makes me squeal every time. "This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things" is savage, and I would LOVE to see a music video of "I Did Something Bad." I get chills just hearing it.

Look What You Made Me Do had to grow on me but now it's my jam of 2017...Ready For It? was immediately good and End Game was not that good. It had to grow on me but it's pretty lit, its music video is only way too dark and it's still not single worthy despite the litness. IDSB is amazing and should be her next single and music video. Don't Blame Me has grown on me since Rep tour. Delicate wasn't my favourite but the video made me a bit addicted. So It Goes... was never my favourite.. Gorgeous is a happy bubblegum pop song but a bit annoying. Getaway is magic. King Of My Heart is meh.. Dancing With Our Hands Tied is very experimental and should be a (promo) single. Dress is okay.. TIWWCHNT is savage and it sounds amazing! Call It What You Want is ok, along with New Years Day.

Loved it. When I first heard Look What You Made Me Do, I thought that it was kinda crappy, but when I listened to it again, I enjoyed it, and after listening to it enough times, I ended up loving it! With most of these songs, you just need to listen to them a few times and you will see just how great they are! Hoping for a music video for Gorgeus, have come up with my own idea for one in my head, if she ever makes one, it will probably end up nothing like my imagined one

6 Taylor Swift Taylor Swift Product Image

This album just describes Taylor. She came from a background of love, laughter, friends, loneliness and bullying but she is able to channel all of those emotions into some truely incredible songs. This album was not only the first insight into her incredible music, but also the album that we relate all her other music to. You may say you want the “old Taylor” back, presumably meaning this album, but most of the songs on this album are closer to reputation than any of her other albums.
-Alison

Hold it right there... Reputation is way better than her debut album

Should be third after speak now and red

Is this an album or herself?

7 Speak Now: World Tour Live Speak Now: World Tour Live Product Image
8 Lover Lover Product Image

I stayed up until twelve a.m. waiting for this album after I woke up at three in the morning before, and it did not disappoint! It has a song you play during Christmas time, a song you dance to, a song that you can cry to, and MANY more!

To be honest, I didn't like this album more than 1989, but she had some really good songs unlike Reputation, which wasn't my style. I love Daylight and Afterglow ^-^

I would be complex, I would be cool. They'd say I'd played the field before I found someone to commit to...

Lover song from Lover album is the best song ever she made.This album is my favourite.

I know this just came out, but her new style is a very welcomed change. Every song on this album is amazing. Speak Now would be my 2nd though. The stories and stripped back nature of this song just can't be denied

Should be 2nd
