Welcome back to the Coming Around Again podcast, part of the Pop Shop family, where host Andrew Unterberger and a variety of guests discuss notable anniversaries being celebrated in the music world.

This week, we're taking a brief break from anniversaries to look back on the catalog of an artist in the news right now: Taylor Swift. With help from Billboard deputy editor, digital Joe Lynch and editorial director Jason Lipshutz, both of the Must-Hear Music podcast, Coming Around Again reviews Swift's six studio albums, from her 2006 self-titled debut to last Friday's (Nov. 10) new release, Reputation.

In the process of debating the six albums, we also talk about our favorite Taylor songs and moments, and remember how we reacted to various milestones -- good and not-so-good -- over the course of her decade-plus career. Finally, we shout out a couple of her less-remembered non-album cuts, and discuss how we feel about Taylor Swift the pop star vs. Taylor Swift the songwriter.

Listen below, and also check out this week's Must-Hear Music podcast, which delves deeper into Reputation, with a track-by-track analysis of the set's 15 songs. And be sure to check back every week, to see which classic artists, albums and songs are Coming Around Again!
