I am not giving you any lyric spoilers since I know some of you still have to go get it, but it’s out on iTunes. GO GET IT.
Sorry, US Swifties will have to go to Target to get the Deluxe Edition. If you are in Canada, be aware that iTunes Canada is not naming the two versions differently so if buy them both and you don’t do anything (like renaming it to Speak Now – Deluxe Edition which was my solution) the tracks will mix up. You can still tell them apart by the art (purple is standard, red is deluxe).
Be aware the Deluxe Edition on iTunes Canada doesn’t have the booklet with the lyrics (and codes) or the videos. So you might want to go the standard route and get the physical CD of the Deluxe. Or get everything. Your call.
It is more than good, it’s excellent. It’s fierce. It’s Taylor Swift unleashed. I will give you a proper review after I’ve listened to it a zillion times. Don’t worry I’m working on it.
