In a four-star review of ‘Red (Taylor’s Version)’, NME wrote: “The vocals offer the most significant change, with Swift’s voice maturing significantly in the intervening decade. . You hear it clearest on the spoken-word moments, like ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’s withering put-down: “With some indie record that’s much cooler than mine“.

“It’s the sort of eye-roll moment typical of being a young adult, and while delivered with vim in its creation, in these moments the shifts in Swift’s lyricism and vocals in the 10 years since it was first released are obvious. It’s one of the only recognisable differences to the album’s original.”
