Having followed Ed Sheeran since his "Nandos Skank" days, I had mixed emotions about his finally gaining the recognition he deserves. Mainly I think I was worried about whether he'd be stripped of his individuality and turned into another processed pop sensation. Listening to this album, I realise I needn't have worried. Although a couple of the songs from his original EPs appear here as more mainstream, beat-driven versions (The City and - of course - You Need Me, I Don't Need You) the emotion behind them is still very much present.

My only complaint is that I find some of the tracks on here a little samey. The stand out ones in my opinion are Small Bump, You Need Me I Don't Need You, The A-Team (which I am pleased to note remains unaltered since its original release on 'Loose Change'), The City, Sunburn and the beautiful Little Bird, which can be found on the deluxe version of the album.

It is a rare thing to find an album where every single track is amazing and sadly this is not one of them, but what I can say for it is that all the songs on here compliment each other rather well. And oh my goodness, what a voice! It's worth buying just for the wonderful vocal work alone.

All in all I consider it to be one of the best first albums I have ever bought, and an excellent showcase of Ed's talents. Roll on the second album!

Wow this is the best album I have heard in a very long time, beautiful voice and fantastic lyrics. Stretches over several different genres making Ed difficult to pigeonhole. He has rap and hip hop influences that appeals to the younger audience, whilst I heard the hidden track, "The Parting Glass", played on Mike Harding's BBC Radio 2 Folk Show. I am sure without doubt we will be hearing a lot more from Ed Sheeran for as very long time to come, he has ground out a loyal live following with his intensive live gigging over the last few years. 4 bonus tracks are on the "deluxe" version of this album and should not be missing in particular the outstanding ballad "Sunburn" and the Reggae influenced "Gold Rush".
There is not a bad track on the album and I can't wait to follow Ed's career as I am sure it will go from strength to strength.

I bought this CD for my daughter - her pocket-money had run out and she made a good fist for me up-fronting the cost; something about keeping her bedroom clean and tidy... Surprisingly, I'm glad I did, even if she did renege on the deal. After a week's worth of school runs, with Mr Sheeran belting out from the sound system, I have to say I rather like his style. The voice is strong, individual and convincing, the lyrics smooth, solid and interesting, and that compulsive strumming guitar gutsy and melodious. The breakthrough came when I realised I was still playing Mr Sheeran after I'd dropped off my daughter at the school gates, even singing along on a couple of the tracks. At my age I can't say better than that...

It is always a great feeling when you are a big fan of music and you discover an exciting and interesting new talent - this is exactly what I felt when I discovered Ed Sheeran and his debut album "+". His music actually bears similarities to Adele's, another recent commercial and critical success, as it also has a very acoustic and honest feel to it as if, just like Adele, Ed wants the listener to pay attention to every single emotion that he interprets in his heartfelt self-penned lyrics which are accompanied by appealing current music styles and melodies. Ed Sheeran does differ slightly from Adele in that his voice is much softer and less emotional, but he still manages to deliver the message of a song which is the fundamental key to being a singer-songwriter.

The albums opens with "The A-Team" which has a dramatic storyline accompanied by a pleasing melody and sweet vulnerable vocals. Although the theme of the album is acoustic Folk and Pop, "Drunk", "Grade 8" and "You Need Me, I Don't Need You" add a little R&B flavour and Grime to the mix with more infectious melodies and vocals whilst "The City" has some alternative Pop Rock influences with an interesting chorus. But the main focus of "+" remains Ed's ability to create beautiful heartfelt ballads. "U.N.I" and "Small Bump" are pleasant acoustic guitar led ballads whilst "Wake Me Up" is a very sweet and emotional piano led moment of softness. One of Ed's inspirations is Damien Rice, an accomplished Folk singer, and this can be witnessed in tracks such as the emotionally plaintive "This Time", the Blues influenced "Kiss Me" and the raw but passionately delivered "Give Me Love" (which is followed by a hidden version of the traditionnal Irish Folk song "The Parting Glass" at the end of the song).
