Fearless [Platinum Edition] [Bonus Tracks] [CD/DVD]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Taylor Swift abandons any pretense that she's a teen on her second album, Fearless -- which isn't to say that she suddenly tarts herself up, running away from her youth in a manner that's all too familiar to many teen stars. Swift's maturation is deliberate and careful, styled after the crossover country-pop of Shania Twain and Faith Hill before they turned into divas. Despite the success of her self-titled 2006 debut, there's nothing at all diva-like about Swift on 2008's Fearless: she's soft-spoken and considerate, a big sister instead of a big star. Nowhere is this truer than on "Fifteen," a kind warning for a teen to watch her heart sung from the perspective...

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Taylor Swift abandons any pretense that she's a teen on her second album, Fearless -- which isn't to say that she suddenly tarts herself up, running away from her youth in a manner that's all too familiar to many teen stars. Swift's maturation is deliberate and careful, styled after the crossover country-pop of Shania Twain and Faith Hill before they turned into divas. Despite the success of her self-titled 2006 debut, there's nothing at all diva-like about Swift on 2008's Fearless: she's soft-spoken and considerate, a big sister instead of a big star. Nowhere is this truer than on "Fifteen," a kind warning for a teen to watch her heart sung from the perspective of a woman who's perhaps twice that age -- a sly trick for the 18-year-old Swift. There may be a hint of youthfulness to her singing but that's the only hint of girlishness here; her writing -- and she had a hand in penning all 13 tracks here, with six of them bearing her solitary credit -- is sharply, subtly crafted and the music is softly assured, never pushing its hooks too hard and settling into a warm bed of guitars and keyboards. Like many country-pop albums of the 2000s, the pop heavily outweighs the country -- there aren't fiddles here, there are violins -- yet Fearless never feels garish, a crass attempt at a crossover success. It's small-scale and sweetly tuneful, always seeming humble even when the power ballads build to a big close. Swift's gentle touch is as enduring as her songcraft, and this musical maturity may not quite jibe with her age but it does help make Fearless one of the best mainstream pop albums of 2008. [Appearing roughly a year after the album's original release, the Platinum Edition of Fearless contains six bonus tracks, all grouped at the beginning of the album: "Jump Then Fall," "Untouchable," a "Piano Version" of "Forever & Always," "Come in with the Rain," "SuperStar," and "The Other Side of the Door." There's also a DVD containing five music videos ("Change," "The Best Day," "Love Story," "White Horse," "You Belong with Me"), behind-the-scenes footage for three of those videos and the Fearless 2009 tour, a photo gallery, a CMT Awards "Thug Story," and a deluxe booklet.]

    Woohoo! Taylor's new CD

    Of course I was a huge Taylor Swift fan from the very beggining, so it was no surprise when I begged everybody and their grandmother for the new Fearless CD until I finally got it for Christmas. Only three words can describe what had happened afterword: I WAS HOOKED!! Taylor is a musical genius just like Ally Carter is a writing genius. On the platinum CD ,however, you get 6 new songs including the original ones on the fearless cd and another CD where you can witness behind the scenes looks at three of her music videos, tour photos, and so much more. Taylor, awesome job. :)

    MY Daughter LOves It!...and surprisingly, so do I!

    I knew my daughter would like the album because she was already singing songs she's you tubed and heard around school. I used this CD as a stocking stuffer. She was soo excited that it was one of her top gifts!

    We normally play very diverse array of music. But I was surprised at how well this CD was written and arranged. I considered it "teeny bopper" music before I heard the project for myself. Now, it's just beautiful music that we all enjoy listening to.
