Ed Sheeran

Do you like him or hate him?

Flavor of the month and destined to join James Blunt and Daniel Powter and be quickly forgotten or is this the beginning of a productive career?

Re: Ed Sheeran

I cant really say as all I have heard is from the radio and youtube, but what I have heard I like.

This one is probably my favorite of his:

Re: Ed Sheeran

I like The A Team, though the rest of + is hit and miss for me. It's kind of an eclectic album.

When Sheeran appeared with Elton on the Grammys, my friend's kid who's a Sheeran fan asked "Who's that old guy ruining Ed Sheeran's song?"

Re: Ed Sheeran

+ is ok, but mostly miss. He has a great career ahead of him as a songwriter though.

Re: Ed Sheeran

I think Taylor recommend him to Selena Gomez as a boyfriend.

'charisma' and 'skill as a songwriter' are not mutually exclusive.

Ed Sheeran and his killer new Rock song

Someone posted this song on another board, and I clicked on it because of the question asked about it. (Which KISS song does this sound like?)

I didn't expect much because, well, it's Ed Sheeran. Pop guy.

And then the riff started and I was quite impressed. (It actually sounds like a riff I wrote around 1999, so it's a pretty standard issue, obvious riff that is elevated by a great performance and a fantastic groove here, as well as some good vocal melodies.)

I don't know what you think, but as a hard core Hard Rock fan (one who appreciates funk and a good groove in a Rock song) I really dig it.




No one's going to call this a great song, lyrically, but so what? It's a great ROCK song with a killer groove and catchy vocal melodies.

Re: Ed Sheeran

I like about half of the songs on his new collaboration album that came out yesterday. The song with Eminem and 50 Cent and the one with HER are pretty good

Heís just dreadful. And look at this old comment. Itís sad that guys like James Blunt were a flash in the pan while this awful guy endures. He made a music video where he skied and snuggled in winter sweaters with a chick and it wasnít ironic! All his songs are whiny and heís the proof that payola still exists.

Re: Ed Sheeran

I don't like him but 40 year old housewives need something to listen to. You can only listen to so much Bon Jovi before you need a break.
