I’d written so much tortured poetry in
the past 2 years and wanted to share
it all with you, so here’s the second
instalment of TTPD: The Anthology.
15 extra songs. And now the story
isn’t mine anymore… it’s all yours, Taylor Swift, via Instagram.

events, opinions and sentiments from a fleeting
and fatalistic moment in time – one that was both sensational and sorrowful in equal measure.”.
This period of the author’s life is
now over, the chapter closed and
boarded up. There is nothing to
avenge, no scores to settle
once wounds have healed. , Taylor Swift, via Instagram.

Taylor Swift's new album,
'The Tortured Poets Department,' is
a boldly candid breakup album, with
some of her most quotable lyrics ever, Chris Willman, senior music writer
and chief music critic at 'Variety'.
The intrigue in the lyrics is somewhat
predicated on gossip and I found that
after three or four listens to this album,
or at least the first half, once you’ve
drained the fact out of it, I wasn’t quite
sure what the replay factor would be, Laura Snape, deputy music editor at 'The Guardian,' via Deadline
