EDITORS’ NOTES

He has an acoustic guitar around his neck, but Ed Sheeran is as influenced by hip-hop as indie folk on his 2011 debut. The English singer/songwriter exudes authenticity on heartwarming ballads “Kiss Me” and “This,” then raps nimbly on “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You,” a swipe at the music industry’s hype machine. He also has a gift for tackling an issue—prostitution in “The A Team,” teenage pregnancy in “Small Bump”—and turning it into an affecting pop song.

Brilliant

Ed Sheeran is perhaps the most talented young artist of his generation, talented in so many different types of music. I hope to hear much more from him.

Amazing.

Everything about this album is amazing. Ed, his lyrics, his voice, his melodies. He is a legend. Everyone buy the album. Probably the best album that has come out in awhile.

Great album

Excellent album with a good mix of music from London style rap to the melodic radio hits like Lego House and Kiss Me. Great sound all round and a highly recommended album purchase.
