Ed Sheeran Amazon Front Row Performance

Biography

Ed Sheeran is blessed – he seems to know exactly where he is going, and exactly how to get there. Where countless others fail to make an impression amid today’s information overload, Ed’s music and talent cut straight through.

He has a poise that is as welcome as it is unusual in someone so young. He’s both utterly self-assured but still charmingly open. He has a ... Read more in Amazon's Ed Sheeran Store

Product Description

Never an artist to stand still, Ed recorded X at various locations around the globe (all the while drawing on experiences and influences encountered on his over three years of unrelenting touring) with such luminary producers as Rick Rubin (Eminem, Jay-Z, Red Hot Chilli Peppers), Pharrell Williams (Daft Punk, Robin Thicke, N.E.R.D), Benny Blanco (Rhianna, Wiz Khalifa) and Jeff Bhasker (Alicia Keys, Jay-Z) adding new flavours to the classy work of key collaborators Johnny McDaid (Snow Patrol) and Jake Gosling (who produced +).

The new set showcases the exponential growth (both vocally and musically) of an incredible artist, who at 23 exhibits the poise of a seasoned veteran. The songs for x came together whilst touring + and, in the same way as the latter was a snapshot of his life and relationship to-date, x charts his loves and life since. Only "One", the perfect album opener and first song written for the record (in 2011 whilst on tour in Australia) looks back to that time and is the link between the two records. With "One" under his belt, almost before he noticed he was writing, Ed had ten new songs and counting.
The album-closer "Afire Love" was written about his grandfather who passed away last Christmas. “Always the hero of the family - such a cool guy - he'd been suffering with Alzheimer’s for some time and I actually started writing that song two weeks before he passed away," Ed says. "I was thinking 'What if?' and then he did…” Then there is the timeless ballad "Photograph" written in May 2012 in a hotel room in Kansas whilst on tour with Snow Patrol. McDaid had a piano loop playing on his laptop while Ed was making a Lego X-wing Fighter to give to a charity auction. He just started singing as he put the pieces together and the song grew from there. "Don’t" started life as a riff on his phone and grew into another of x’s massive moments.
However it’s the Pharrell-produced lead single "Sing", that pushed the envelope for Ed. #Sing was the number one trend on twitter globally ahead of launch with the track immediately tearing up airwaves nationwide.
“I’m really proud of my new album and can’t wait for people to hear it.” Ed says.

This is my first Ed Sheeran purchase so I have listened without prejudice after being impressed with his performance on T in the Park on TV. I have to say I am not in the least bit disappointed - just an album of great songs. Nicely varied, but all heartfelt and strongly melodic, Yes there is a range of sounds here that suggest a range of producers, but also a distinctive style that suggest a very talented young man. it really is hard to fault.

Really worth buying deluxe edition for 'I see fire' alone - already my favourite track on the album. 'Runaway', 'Bloodstream' and 'The Man' are also current favourites - but a great listen all round. A pleasing discovery.

This was purchased for my partner who heard the song "Don't" at Glastonbury... I wouldn't say he was an Ed Sheeran fan before but this album has converted him....he thinks this album is excellent...All the songs are brilliant he is such a good lyricist and my partner now has tickets to see him at the 02. The man can write a solid tune so well as well as have such a great range to his voice and his rap style is so laid back and pleasant to hear. With the catchy first single "Sing" which I still love to death, this album is a must and this explains why it has been on the number 1 spot for a while now...fantastic!!

I only decided to purchase after hearing a couple of songs from this album on the radio which I loved. The album exceeded my expectations and I cannot stop playing it. Every song is memorable and Ed has amazing vocal range with intelligent song writing. I never realised how talented he was. I look forward to his next album !

Excuse the pun above but ya know! Had to it just felt right. I'll take a step back momentarily and just say..
The music coming this year just gets better and better; Sam Smith "In The Lonely Hour" Michael Jackson "Xscape" and now Ed Sheeran "X (Multiply)". This is the best of the best right here.

From the quiet ballad of falsetto and acoustic "One"

To the ever so regretful "I'm A Mess"

Followed on by the number one UK single acoustic dance track of "SING"

Then we get to the best stuff.

"Don't" is a particular highlight of mine. And many others by the looks of things. The hip-hop influenced spoken rapped four minute masterclass about being cheated on.

"Nina" is another hidden gem. R&B and catchy about long distance relationship.

"Thinking Out Loud" is also a personal favourite; a pretty falsetto ballad. Uplifting.

"Bloodstream" is a catchy R&B influenced song about drugs etc.

"Photograph" is another long distance relationship song. Lovely.

And "Afire Love" is heartfelt ballad about his grandfather's alzheimers and resulting death.

Those are my favourites. Not that the others aren't exceptional!

"I See Fire" is ridiculously good. Slow, slow, slow, then an explosive ending.

"The Man", a song reflecting on love, career, and fame. Sung in a rap!

"Take It Back" is a song about his career, reminiscent of "You Need Me I Don't Need You" from "+".

"Shirtsleeves" is a beautiful touch. Nuff said!

"Even My Dad Does Sometimes" is pretty but my least favourite.

"Tenerife Sea" is kinda magical. About true love, Ed Sheeran style!

"Runaway" is about Ed's dad's drinking problem, and is the second song directed by Pharrel. A very touchful yet upbeat tune.

"The Fault In Our Stars" is a real gem of an end to a real gem of an album.

Highly recommend. Best album this year :-)

Sheeran's command of vocal range, layering of musical ideas, simple melodic lines, lyrics rattled out like bullets and catchy themes are just some of the elements that make this album great. The honest and heartfelt insight into the struggles and vibrancy of his experiences and ordeals are riddled with the complexities of a frustrated and excited personality. A particular shout out for "Don't"; "Nina"; "Bloodstream" and "Runaway". Powerful stuff.

As you know, Ed Sheeran has been making waves these past few years as a singer/songwriter with a difference.
For a few of his fans though this second album marks just another step on the ladder of a journey that has spanned almost 10 years since his first EP release.

I'm part of the latter group who have been lucky enough to have experienced Ed's music & live shows 'pre & post' his signing to Atlantic records.

In my opinion, this album release marks a significantly more self-aware and experienced Sheeran who appears to have settled into the new life his unprecedented successes, both in the UK & worldwide have created.

A lot of fans have berated Ed for 'selling out' as he appeared to move further from his acoustic roots to create & produce the music we're slowly becoming more accustomed to hearing from him, yet i'd argue this whole album is well crafted with a very varied sound, showing his matured tastes, yet refusing to forget his long heritage of raw acoustic guitar tracks and his beautiful vocal range.

My personal highlight of the album being 'Don't', a powerful and emotionally charged tune to a retro hip hop beat that reminds me of 'One Night' from the 'Loose Change EP'.

If you want to follow the story of this singer/songwriter's journey to the top, this latest album is as good a starting point, as any of his others before.

Here's to album #3!
