Taylor Swift's new album, "Reputation", is now available in retail outlets and online stores, but it's absent from major streaming services. "Reputation" is projected by its distributor to sell 1.3 and 1.5 million units in the U.S.in its first week, a source close to the situation tells Variety - which would actually be a bump up from the 1.287 million first-week sales of her previous album, "1989", release in October 2014.
But we want to know what you guys think, does it live up to her past releases? AKA you can't listen to the full album on demand, but you can listen to a radio station that plays Swift's back catalogue with songs from the new album sprinkled in.
Have your say in our poll below.
Swift's long-anticipated sixth album, Reputation (*** out of four stars), chronicles the most turbulent year and a half of the singer's life, consisting of squads, suitors and one Earth-shattering personal drama - her public spat with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian - that resulted in Swift all-but-disappearing from public life.More news: Packers cut TE Martellus Bennett with failure to disclose physical condition designation

Swift came out of the gate swinging on Reputation's lead single Look What You Made Me Do, with lyrics like "I don't like your little games / Don't like your tilted stage" that seemed directed at West, the rapper who reignited their feud when he unceremoniously included Swift's name in his Famous lyrics.

Then, it's West's turn. "And here's to you, 'cause forgiveness is a nice thing to do", she sings to him, before breaking out in laughter, exclaiming, "I can't even say it with a straight face!"
And with that ax, T-Swift swings for the heart with a lyric about Ye's falling out with Jay Z: "But I'm not the only friend you've lost lately / Mm mmm / If only you weren't so shady". In verse two, she makes it clear that "This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things" is about burning bridges. To follow the song's metaphor, Hiddleston is the getaway auto driver who whisks Swift away from another man ("Well he was running after us / I was screaming 'Go go go!'").
