Just in time to fill the early Taylor Swift niche on the eve of Reputation’s release, canny young country hitmaker Ballerini delivers a sophomore set that’s often a ringer for Swift circa Fearless if not Speak Now – especially in the shimmering production, hints of electropuffery, unexpected arrangements, vowel-sustaining phrasing and putting-dumb-boyfriends-in-their-place ethos of its first several tracks. Relationships wither away like flowers (“Roses”) and humans (“Graveyard”); independence gets stolen by jerky dudes (goth-popping “Miss Me More”); adolescence is awkwardly navigated (nursery-rhymey-chorused relationship-with-mom tune “In Between”) and pathetically clung to (“High School.”) “Get Over Yourself” and “I Hate Love Songs” pull off their titles’ stupid-cupid cynicism, too – the latter with a countrypolitan soul feel, a sense of humor and more dead roses on your grave.
