Fan Favorite Albums:
For many fans, the standard answer to "What is your favorite Taylor Swift Album?" is "That's a tough question." In interviewing a few of Swif't's many fans, I was able to come to the conclusion that the top favorite albums are Reputation, favored by @cicilovecheese, @1989vinyl, and @mitchyalx; Fearless Taylor's Version, selected by @kaitlyn and @beckiewiththegoodstuff, Speak Now Taylor's Version: determined by @savvyyy96, 1989: selected by @brookee.phamm, and finally Lover: favored @vc.ortiz_. All ten of Swift's albums are beloved by all her fans, and the re-recording albums are now being used instead of the original versions owned by Republic Records, showing support for Taylor Swift. Swift can connect her fans to each song, which makes it difficult to pick an album to be the favorite when fans all equally favor them.
