iTunes Review

The unassuming troubadour grows into a world-conquering pop phenomenon. X doesn’t deviate from debut +’s base formula but the results are bigger and bolder. On “Sing”, Pharrell Williams arrives to transform Sheeran into a tequila-slamming R&B lothario, while “Don’t’’’s punchy infidelity tale adds intriguing bitterness to his palate. It’s not all hormones and rage though—he’s an irresistible romantic on “Thinking Out Loud” and at his most moving on “Afire Love”’s ode to his grandfather.

Cannot wait for this album! From what we've heard so far, it is going to be sickkk! Love Ed, he's such a talented lyrical, musical genius. We will see how much he has grown from an already phenomenal artist to now. LOVE X

More mature than ‘+’ but just about

‘+’ took the UK by storm and cemented Ed Sheeran’s particular brand of heartfelt, storytelling, love-oriented pop music. In this album, he matures a little and expands beyond the dewy-eyed innocent image he had built for himself previously, with songs like ‘Sing’ and ‘Don’t’ showing a darker, more grown-up style. This is refreshing, but for me it’s in such stark contrast to the style of the first album that I can’t take Ed seriously as a womanizer ('Sing’). For me, the album really shines on songs that focus on harsh truths (‘I’m a Mess’ and ’Nina’ are my two favourite tracks) because here, Ed sings with a well of emotion around well crafted lyrics, but not about the type of love teenage girls would write about in their secret diary with a unicorn pen. I think these songs reflect him having matured since his last album, while not being an attempt to be someone he’s not. The album isn’t too badly let down though, the solid songs on it more than make up for the lack of depth in others. I’ll still give it 5 stars because I love it.

If you enjoyed ‘+’, you’ll love this. Buy it.

Pure Talent

Thinking out Loud is one of the most beautiful songs ever written and superbly performed by Ed.
