Taylor Swift is the album is the debut album by Taylor Swift. It displays the original personality of the artiste before all the drama that came with the fame changed her. It was recorded when she was sixteen years of age, and the fact that she was still of tender age was evident in all the songs on the album. The sound was fresh but not really mature, her voice, although nice, would have still used a lot of work. She confidently sang about her hopes and dreams in the album. As most teenagers are known to have dreams and hopes during their teenage years, this characterized her as one. The album was as successful as any and is quite commendable considering the fact that it was her starter album – Swift is a storyteller, she is well known for using her music to speak her mind and that was apparent in her this album. The songs are experiences which came directly from the pages of her diary that she had chosen to share with listeners – Taylor Swift, unlike her recent albums is a mixture of two distinct sounds: country and pop. The way her sound has changed since her first album is really mind-blowing and I think the explanation for this is that she was not really a country singer at the beginning and she only sang that way because it was probably what everyone expected from her at the time – The album takes us back to the Swift that existed before all the fame. The one thing that has remained constant in all her other albums is the fact that her tracks are focused on her lamenting about the golden three: relationships, betrayal and boys.
