By the way, what I heard from the album already sounds very interesting. I always wanted to buy + but somehow never got to, but at the moment it seems like both could be potential purchases and that x could be one of the year's musical highlights.

Of course this pop album is in the rock forum :lol:

Anyway, I wasn't much interested in his debut outside of Drunk. But I figure that he must've included songs he'd had laying around for a while, on his debut and this album will be produced a lot better and sound a lot more fresh.

On first listen, it's very good. I've never been a massive fan of Ed, but in a year that has produced utterly dire albums from big names, this is refreshing.

Bought the deluxe edition today. Only heard 'Sing' and 'I See Fire' before listening for the first time.
I'm so impressed! Very solid album.

After hearing only half the album, it's safe to say it's better than +.

I didn't expect it to be soooo perfect. I mean the whole album is amazing, Every. Single. Song. But the 'Photograph & Bloodstream' pair is just something out of this world, I can listen to them all day.
Afire Love, Nina, Don't, Thinking Out Loud, I'm a Mess are my favorites as well
It will be tough for any artist to top 'x' this year :wink: even for my king Jason Mraz :oops:

Yes, it's better than debut album, but some songs sound like a total Justin T rip-off(especially Sing and Don't)

Really great album!

This will be huge this year, probably bigger than GH or "Ultraviolence"

I don't think Ultraviolence will have legs.

What is GH?

Oops, i meant GS like "Ghost Stories" :oops:

But yeah, Lana sold a lot with BTD so i think she'll sell a lot this time too due to her hype (like GaGa sold a lot with BTW due to TF's success), but she won't reach BTD's sales of course.

Ah gotcha! I just spent the last 10 minutes on iTunes looking at the top albums trying to figure out what it stood for :lol:

Lots of options for singles: One, I'm A Mess, Runaway and Take It Back. Should give plenty of life for x on the charts.

Runaway is fantastic. The only song I really like(well and maybe Don't). The rest is boring or just ok. Anyway, it will be a huge selling album in English-speaking countries

So, Ed Sheeran made the cover of Vibe Magazine and is named as R&B's Most Wanted along with Mack Wilds (that guy from 90210) and August Alsina.

Image

So, I've been trying to find this album's topic in Pure Pop & Urban/R&B sections only to realize that it's actually on the first page of Rock/Alternative section instead. Pffffft. :lol:

Thanks to Vibe I decided to download this album though. Hopefully it's good.

Exactly, my taste is impeccable Image.

But seriously tho, listen to Take It Back. Needs to be submitted to Best Rap Song at the Grammys. #TheGreenPrint

One, I'm A Mess, Sing, Don't Photograph, Runaway and The Man are all highlights too.

I don't even think I have a track I hate on this... the production on the record is sub par but I guess makes sense that they did want to overshadow the lyrics and vocals which are bloody stellar

Probably 'Don't' as a summer smash. but 'Photograph' can be really huge, let's say... in September. 8-)
