Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 393/500!

1989 is the fifth studio album by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, released on October 27, 2014, through Big Machine Records. After releasing her fourth studio album, Red (2012), and embarking on The Red Tour (2013–14), her personal life generated significant media attention. Swift began planning her follow-up project in 2013 and continued work into 2014, during which she collaborated with producers including Max Martin and Shellback, while the former served as the album's executive producer along with Swift. The album's title was inspired by the pop music scene of her birth year.

1989 is a pop album which Swift described as her "first documented official pop album," representing a musical departure from the country pop style in her earlier works. The album's production differs from Swift's previous work. Unlike others, 1989 is built over drum programming, synthesizers, pulsating bass, processed backing vocals, and guitars. Its lyrical content is based mainly on Swift's style of writing about love, the album's content frequently discusses the complexities of relationships.

1989 received generally favorable reviews from contemporary music critics who felt that its experimental production was well executed. The album was a commercial success debuting at number one on the US Billboard 200, selling 1,287,000 copies. In doing so, the album became the highest sales week since 2002, and made Swift the first artist to have three albums sell a million or more copies in a week as well as becoming the best-selling album released in 2014. It has spawned two number one singles, "Shake It Off" and "Blank Space," and the top 20 song "Out of the Woods."

"When Taylor Swift decides to do something, the girl really knows how to overdo it. So on her fifth album, when she indulges her crush on Eighties synth-pop, she goes full blast, spending most of the album trying to turn herself into the Pet Shop Boys. 1989 is a drastic departure – only a couple of tracks feature her trademark tear-stained guitar. But she's still Taylor Swift, which means she's dreaming bigger and oversharing louder than anyone else in the game... rather than trying to duplicate the wide reach of Red, she focuses on one aspect of her sound for a whole album – a very Prince thing to do... Deeply weird, feverishly emotional, wildly enthusiastic, 1989 sounds exactly like Taylor Swift, even when it sounds like nothing she's ever tried before. And yes, she takes it to extremes. Are you surprised? This is Taylor Swift, remember? Extremes are where she starts out." -Rolling Stone

"The concept was simple: produce a pop album inspired by the music and production typical of 1989—the year Taylor Swift was born, which would mean primitive programmed percussive beats, “old school” synth backing tracks, pulsating bass lines, chrome-sheened, icy vocal processing and all of the studio tricks that helped produce that era’s “sonic signature”... There are break-up songs, songs of regret, and there’s a song about the burdens of being in the public eye." - analogplanet, Music 8/11, Sound 8/11
