“Very different from his more recent stuff. If you aren’t prepared for a more intimate listening experience then this isn’t for you. It’s much more acoustic and vocals heavy which isn’t necessarily everyone’s favorite. However, if you’re a fan of Ed Sheeran then this is an important collection to see where he has come from.”
4. No. 6 Collaborations Project (2019)
“This album is a great addition to his body of work. The fact that he can cross over so many genres and collaborate with such a broad range of artists is mind-blowing. There is something for everyone on this album (unless maybe you’re into twangy country music). Some of the lesser-known collaborators on this album are about to be introduced to another level of fame.”

3. ÷ (Divide) (2017)
“. This album has a mix of some great pop tunes like Castle on the Hill and Shape of You, to some Celtic infused songs like Galway Girl and Nancy Mulligan. There’s even a little rap thrown in along with some of the beautiful ballads we’re used to hearing him do”

“Ed Sheeran is the real thing. He shows his diverse talent in this multi level CD, taking us with him from the beginning of love, loss of a loved one, standing for what is right, and comforting those who love us. I’ve been moved by his music and look forward to his future music.”
1. + (2011)
“Ed Sheeran’s “+” is a stunning set, filled with melodic gems. “Drunk” bubbles with Ed’s shotgun lyrics faster than a bullet. “U.N.I.” (you and I) has a similar shotgun lyric and then slows down on the chorus. One wonders how he remembers the lyric like, “And I don’t get waves of missing you anymore, they’re more like tsunami tides in my eyes.” “This” is a gorgeous slow song with Ed’s high pitched voice as fragile as it is gentle, “You are the earth that I will stand upon, You are the words I will sing.”
