I’d written so much tortured poetry in the past 2 years and wanted to share it all with you, so here’s the second instalment of TTPD: The Anthology.

15 extra songs.

And now the story isn’t mine anymore… it’s all yours, Taylor Swift, via Instagram.

In a previous post, Swift described her new music as, , “An anthology of new works that reflect events, opinions and sentiments from a fleeting and fatalistic moment in time – one that was both sensational and sorrowful in equal measure.”.

This period of the author’s life is now over, the chapter closed and boarded up.

There is nothing to avenge, no scores to settle once wounds have healed.

Once we have spoken our saddest story, we can be free of it.

And then all that’s left behind is the tortured poetry, Taylor Swift, via Instagram.

Fans have been speculating about who two particular tracks — 'The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived' and "Guilty as Sin?'

Meanwhile, music journalists' reviews have been mixed when it comes to the double album drop.

Taylor Swift's new album, 'The Tortured Poets Department,' is a boldly candid breakup album, with some of her most quotable lyrics ever, Chris Willman, senior music writer and chief music critic at 'Variety'.

The intrigue in the lyrics is somewhat predicated on gossip and I found that after three or four listens to this album, or at least the first half, once you’ve drained the fact out of it, I wasn’t quite sure what the replay factor would be, Laura Snape, deputy music editor at 'The Guardian,' via Deadline
