I actually like her songs. It's only when I see her music videos that I get a negative vibe. *shrugs*
Swift is an artist I've never paid much attention to. When I've heard her music, she sounds like she's either tuneless or has a very narrow vocal range. I've heard a few of the songs off her recent album on the radio recently. Sonically, they remind me of Liz Phair's work when she went "pop" with her eponymous album.
Which kinda makes me want Swift to do an album of Liz Phair covers. Maybe Exile in Guyville
in full. Swift singing "Fuck and Run," yeah. I'd buy that.
