Swifties, it’s time to level with you. After over 100 episodes and seven album reviews, Good for a Weekend hosts Kressie and MK are doing the unthinkable — they’re admitting they don’t care for a Taylor Swift album (and they aren’t alone). On this episode, the two breakdown the first disc of The Tortured Poets DepartmentListen above or wherever you get your podcasts.

Just because Kressie and MK might not love The Tortured Poets Department, however, doesn’t mean they don’t have lots of thoughts on the album. In fact, they have so many thoughts (and there are so many songs on The Anthology) that they needed to break their review into two parts!

This week, the duo will touch on The Tortured Poets Department proper, meaning everything up to the additional songs included on the expanded edition. They discuss everything that works and everything that doesn’t. Spoiler alert: a lot doesn’t. According to Kressie and MK, there’s no denying Swift’s prowess as a songwriter — the powerful bridges, catchy choruses, pristine production, lyrics that are autobiographical yet relatable — but this collection of songs lacks in many of those aspects.
