It's good. I mean, I knew it would be. Of more note, maybe, is the huge stylistic shift (again). It's... more folksy, I guess? I don't know if that's the right description or not. It's not a pop record, and she hasn't gone back to country, either. But if you are one of those people who wanted her to do country again, or who preferred her simpler ballads and acoustic stuff to the big pop bangers, this could be what you were actually looking for. And if you're someone who didn't listen to Taylor at all previously, it's possible that Folklore might convert you.

It's probably worth noting that a lot of songs on this album are written from the perspective of other people. Some real, some made up. This isn't new for her, but I have seen some... interesting hot takes from people who didn't know.
