Taylor Swift 'Red' Tracks Reviewed By HuffPost Editors; The Best & Worst Of Swift's New Album

10/24/2012 04:42 pm ET

Around the section of the Huffington Post newsroom devoted to the Entertainment, Celebrity and TV verticals, there was only one voice quietly humming out of each editor's headphones on Wednesday: Taylor Swift. (Or two, if you count the tracks with Ed Sheeran and Gary Lightbody.)

Swift's "Red," which was released on Monday after weeks of fanfare, is the pop album of the moment, loaded with enough possible singles to rival even Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream." Thanks to a perfect blend of Facebook-wall lyricism, slick Top-40 production and the lure of tabloid scandal -- "Red" is bad news for Jake Gyllenhaal fans -- Swift's latest album is an infectious listen. Perhaps too infectious. Just ask Huffington Post executive arts and entertainment editor Michael Hogan:

As it turned out, however, even entertainment editor Kia Makarechi got into "Red." Below, enjoy HuffPost staff reactions, both good and bad, to every track on "Red."

[Ed. note: Kia would like readers to note that he was actually listening to the Kendrick Lamar album, "good kid, MAAD City." Whatever.]
