Ed Sheeran is hard to pin down, he drifts through genres with ease. I can only imagine how eclectic his record collection and influences are. Having bought tracks before (Wayfaring Stranger, A Team, You Need Me, etc) while impatiently waiting for the album my expectations were high. He has not disappointed me at all - a breathtaking album. If you've heard any of his previous releases, seen him on tv or heard him on the Radio (especially radio 6) then you'll be getting this album already -- if you haven't then google him, listen to the words, watch the videos, hear the interviews and then buy possibly the best album so far this year.
Hits are good. But the rest are really a bit pathetic. fair cop this is a decent CD from a totally independant artist, which is refreshing, but at times it shows. Some catchy songs, some poor ones, by no means a great album
