Background and release
While collaborating with different writers on Red, Swift wrote the song along with Liz Rose. The song has been inspired from Swift's ex-boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal according to some blogs .. The song has been produced by Swift and Nathan Chapman.
Swift has a said that the song was "the hardest to write on the album", saying: "“All Too Well” [was difficult to write emotionally] because it took me a really long time to filter through everything I wanted to put in the song without it being a 10 minute song, which you can’t put on an album. I wanted a story that could work in the form of a song and I called my co-writer Liz Rose and said, ‘Come over, we’ve gotta filter this down,’ and it took me a really long time to get it."
The song has received acclaim from music critics, who praised her song writing skills, and her ability to tell a story through a song, with many highlighting it as a standout on the album. Billboard gave a positive review to the song saying "Just like that, Swift snaps back to her core demographic: "All Too Well" is sumptuous country, with Swift "dancing 'round the kitchen in the refrigerator light" in the memory of a romance that has seemingly been buried in time. The tune would have fit snugly on "Speak Now," and even touches upon some of the same themes as "Mine," but on "Red" it serves as a reminder that these songs will always remain in Swift's wheelhouse."About.com gave the song 4 out of 5 stars, saying that the song is "A mincing guitar figure."
