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!

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 :-)

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.

Brilliant. Truely did not believe Ed would be able to beat his first album, +, but he really did. One of the best albums i have ever bought, 110% recommend this to anybody.

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 !

I saddens me to say it but im disappointed by this album. I loved his debut album and have seen Ed in concert and he is clearly a unique talent that deserves every bit of his success.

I listened to this once over and not a single song stuck with me, except for "I see Fire" (which I already knew and thought was an amazing track), but everything else just didn't hit me like most of "+" did. I thought okay, I'll listen to it again and see what stands out second time over, as quite often happens on repeat listens, nothing. I have listened to it maybe 5 times over now in the last week or so and the only thing that I can say is im pretty gutted. I feel Eds uniqueness has been lost and I can now hear other singers/bands instead in his music. For example "Sing" sounds like a Justin Timberlake song and I even checked to see if he was on it, I can hear some Newton Faulker in tracks like Photograph and in "the Man" which is quite a decent song I can hear The Streets so clearly.

This isn't a bad album, and everyone else clearly seems to love it but I feel pretty flat about it. I will keep listening but im pretty sure at this point it will just get lost in my music rotation. Sorry Ed, I've got high hopes for the next one.
