    Twaintrain, I'm going to do your ranking, just a bit different. I am having to go back and listen or re-listen to Taylor's past albums, because I haven't listened to them in forever (or ever, in the case of her debut). So, as I finish listening to each album and it's fresh on my mind, I will comment my favorite single/non-single and a comment on the album as a whole. After I've finished listening to all of them, I will rank them!

    Taylor Swift (Is there a deluxe version of this album? I only found one version on Amazon Unlimited. Although it appears it might be a reissue with what were originally bonus tracks.)

    Single: Should've Said No
    Non-single: A Perfectly Good Heart

    This was a tough album for me to critique. Honestly, I couldn't wait for it to be over. As I've said before, I started liking some of Taylor's songs during the Fearless era, but Speak Now was the first Taylor album that I ever listened to on a repeated basis. It's not that I dislike her early music, it's just that I didn't get into it at the time and listening to it now, almost 12 years later, it sounds so dated and her voice sounds so immature. I like the singles better than the album tracks, just because I am more familiar with them, having heard them on country radio at the time they were released. Should've Said No is the first Taylor song that I remember really liking and latching onto. I think me being 26 and Taylor being 17 when this album came out made it harder for me to relate to her and her songs. It was especially hard for me to pick a non-single as my "favorite", because I didn't like any of them that much. I honestly will probably never listen to this album again. Perhaps my feelings about it would be different if I had listened to it when it came out and had some familiarity or nostalgia about it, but I didn't and I don't, so it really doesn't do anything for me as a 37 year old listening to the whole album for the first time, lol.

    ^There was a deluxe edition. I don’t know the song “A Perfectly Good Heart” so you must have listened to the deluxe edition. I just have the regular with 11 songs that ends with “Our Song”.

    I am VERY slowly making my way through Taylor's discography, lol. I just finished listening to Fearless this morning on my way to work. It took me forever since I wasn't in my car for long periods at a time this past week. Anyway, I listened to the Platinum Edition of Fearless, which initially made for a very odd listening experience. I was 99% sure that I had listened to the album a few times years ago, but when it started I didn't recognize any of the songs. After doing some research just now, it appears that the Platinum version includes the "bonus" tracks at the beginning of the album, rather than the end. I didn't care for any of these bonus tracks really, except maybe "The Other Side of the Door" and wanted to skip them, but didn't. In hindsight, maybe I should have since they weren't part of the Fearless album with which I was familiar! Anyway, here goes.

    Fave Single: Love Story (Honorable mention for White Horse)
    Fave Non-single(s): Breathe and You're Not Sorry

    This was the first Taylor album that I actually listened to the whole thing pretty soon after it came out and I do remember listening to it more than once, although I don't know that it stayed in rotation for very long. Her voice does show signs of maturing on this album, although I think it gets much better with Speak Now. However, it didn't grate on my nerves like it did on her debut. Overall, I really liked all of the singles on this album and there were a couple of standout album tracks for me that I probably liked better than the singles (except maybe Love Story). I loved Breathe from the moment I heard it, but I was also a Colbie Caillat fan at the time and owned one of her albums. This type of song and vocal was one of my favorites from Taylor in that time period, because Safe & Sound is still one of my favorite ever Taylor songs.

    It was during the Fearless era that I saw Taylor when she toured with Keith Urban. I feel like it was in Lexington, KY, at Rupp Arena, although on her wiki page that date is not listed as one with Keith. I may have seen them in Cincinnati. Anyway, I don't think I listened to the album Fearless until after this tour date maybe. It was this tour that made me fall in love with You're Not Sorry. Taylor played the song on piano and I think she mashed it up with JT's "What Goes Around (Comes Around)". I loved the song live and it is close to being my favorite song on Fearless.
