Red is Taylor Swift’s finest album. It hit the sweet spot where she’d grown up beyond the teenager in love persona of her first few albums but before she let synthesized sound and gimmicks drown out her slice of life lyrics.
Along with I Almost Do (#235 on this list), All Too Well is one of her best. Raw, grown up heartbreak. Not the kind you write about in your diary during chemistry class, but the kind that you never speak of but carry close to you forever.
She perfectly blends the residual love, heartbreak, and bitterness of a breakup.
