    I know.....a 50 something man listening to TayTay. Actually like her last 3 albums if I'm in the mood for it. My son, 20 something, used to be a TS hater but one day I sat him down w/the SDA's and we listened to 1989. I explained the art of multitrack layering, use of her voice as backup and electronic cues. I give her lots of props for the production. He's also come to recognize it and changed his tune about her. As my system's gotten better I'm able to appreciate the subtleties buried in the music. May not care for her or her music but I think she's pretty good at what she does. 1989 is the best of the past 3 but her current release is a nice spin if you don't take things too seriously. There, I said it, I listen to Taylor Swift.
