"Taylor Swift truly gave us a musical masterpiece with her surprise album, Folklore, proving yet again that she's the gift that keeps on giving. With such sharp lyrics and dreamy melodies, each song is even more enchanting than the next. After 2020, Folklore was the perfect escape this year, like a cozy cardigan that warms your soul." — Kelsie Gibson, editor, celebrity and entertainment
"As a die-hard Swiftie, I know what to expect when it comes to Taylor's album releases. There's much pomp and circumstance, generally a brand new Instagram aesthetic teased months before (sometimes accompanied by a full social media blackout), and Easter eggs dropping left and right leaving us to theorize our minds away. But on July 24th, a simple tweet changed all of that. The drop of her album Folklore really got me and my friends through so much. We had a virtual listening party at midnight, and, to this day, it's one of the best nights of my life. I'm not sure I'll ever feel that unexpected high ever again." — Charisandra Perez
