On 'Lover,' Taylor Swift shows tremendous artistic growth

Swift has spent her whole career trying to describe true love in her songwriting. In the liner notes for "Red" she muses,“real love shines golden like starlight, and doesn’t fade or spontaneously combust. Maybe I’ll write a whole album about that kind of love if I ever find it.”  And with "Lover," she achieves that. In a call-back to "Red," Swift sings “I once believed love would be burning red/but it’s golden like daylight.”
