The Tortured Poets Department is generally reviewing well following its release last week


Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few days, you’ll know what Taylor Swift has released a new album.

After the Eras Tour made the singer reach new heights, not least the fact she’s now a billionaire, Swift is no doubt on top of the world.

And with the release of The Tortured Poets Department, many millions have listened to Swift’s latest music.

The ‘Shake It Off’ hitmaker took to her Instagram stories on Sunday (21 April) to repost multiple reviews from her 11th studio album.

Swift shared one particular growing review from the Rolling Stone which dubbed the 34-year-old as “confused, bitter, raging, vulnerable, yet more gloriously chaotic than we’ve ever heard her before”

The singer shared the review alongside a caption that read: “And that’s the closest I’ve come to my heart exploding.”

Listeners of the album will for sure know that that particular line comes from track two, which bears the same name as the album.

Swift also shared a reverie from the Independent, with critic Helen Brown penning: “The whole album is a terrific reminder of the intense, personal connection Swift can conjure in song.

“She fills arenas and dominates the news agenda because listeners can relate to her starry dramas – her tales endow their own experiences with new electricity.”

Meanwhile, Paste Magazine decided to keep their review of the album anonymous, citing safety reasons for the decision.

In an editor’s note, the publication said on X: “There is no byline on this review due to how, in 2019 when Paste reviewed Lover, the writer was sent threats of violence from readers who disagree with the work.

“We care more about the safety of our staff than a name attached to an article.”

Many famous faces have seemingly been mentioned in Swift’s new album, including a Kim Kardashian ‘diss-track’.

Her former beau, Matt Healy, was also mentioned, as well as long-term former partner, Joe Alwyn.

In ‘Guilty as Sin’, Swift sings about having romantic feelings and ‘fatal fantasies’ for someone from her past while in a relationship with someone else.

Many worked out that Swift is talking about Joe Alwyn here – who she dated for six years before starting a romance with Healy.

Meanwhile, some ‘Swifties’ turned detective and insisted the track also ‘unironically sounds like a 1975 song’.

Healy is of course the frontman in the band.
