Win Big! Taylor Swift's New Album "Speak Now"

It's finally here! Taylor Swift's newest album, Speak Now, hit stores this past Monday and we're totally in love with it.

The album includes all the iTunes releases we've heard in the last few weeks like "Mine", "Speak Now", and "Mean," but we couldn't wait to hear what else Tay had in store for us.

Speak Now mixes the classic Taylor we all know and love with a new, more mature and grown-up Swift. We love both, and it's refreshing to hear her break out with music that shows her growth as an artist, as well as a person.

Those of you who adore Taylor’s old hits like "You Belong With Me" and "Love Story" are sure to be listening to "Sparks Fly," "Long Live" and "If This Was A Movie" on repeat, where she stays true to her familiar song-writing style.

For those dying to hear something new from the country/pop princess, check out "Haunted," a beautiful rock ballad that showcases a bit of her darker side, breaking away from the fiddles and predictable rhythms Taylor’s often identified with.

In "Never Grow Up," Taylor expresses what everyone feels at some point: Growing up is terrifying, so why can't we stay little forever? It's heartbreaking and emotional, but definitely relatable.

All in all, Speak Now is just as personal and emotional as all of Taylor's hits—but this time she delivers them with a more mature style and grace that we hope is here to stay.
