5.0 out of 5 stars Ed Sheeran's '+' is magic! November 30, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I stumbled upon Ed Sheeran when they played The A Team on radio, and I've been hooked since. There's a rhythm in his music, candidness in his lyrics and a depth in his voice which are rare in today's music. If you like Jason Mraz or Howie Day (more the former), you'll likely enjoy Ed Sheeran's music. For a debut album, + is simply awesome. I enjoyed almost all the tracks and even the ones which didn't quite appeal to me, I still found pretty decent. Overall, I'd say that Ed Sheeran's the real deal. Unlike other new artists (of which there are many), I believe Ed, like his music, is here to stay! I can't wait for what else this talented artist has to offer!

4.0 out of 5 stars Promising debut album, and even better in concert June 12, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I happened to see Ed Sheeran performing on TV at the Brits Awards (where he won several awards, if I recall) in February, and really liked what I saw. I finally picked up the album the other day when I saw him live here in Cincinnati (more on that later). Sheeran had released a number of singles with great acclaim in the UK before this album came out last Fall in the UK.

"+" (13 tracks; 50 min.) brings Ed Sheeran's best output from those multiple pre-album singles, and a number of new tracks. When the opening track "The A Team" comes on, the immediate reaction is that this reminds me of "Damien Rice meets James Blake", and indeed a number of tracks on here are in that very same vein. But on a number of other tracks, Sheeran expands into further territory, even rapping ("Grade B" and "Lego House" among others). Other highlights include the UK singles "You Need Me, I Don't Need You" (with more rapping) and the last official track on here, the epic "Give Me Love" (it is followed by an uncredited track to close things out). This is an enjoyable debut album for sure.

At the Cincinnati show, Sheeran put on a blazing 35 min. solo-act (opening for Snow Patrol), where he worked with loops and creating a one-man band wall of sound, just incredible. He started with an amazing 10 min. version of "Give Me Love", inciting a crowd sing-along (mind you, this is the FIRST song of his set!), and doing it again on "You Need Me, I Don't Need You", just wow. If you have a chance to catch Ed Sheeran on tour, do not miss it! Meanwhile "+" is a promising debut album, sure to end up on my year-end list of the "best of" this year's albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars ed sheeran + is awesome October 26, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was very pleased with my selection of Ed Sheeran's + cd. At first I was a little disappointed in all the slow ballads, but the more I listened to the cd, the more I really began to appreciate this talented young and upcoming star's style. Now, I love this cd and would not change a single thing. I cannot get enough of listening to it!! I highly recommend it if you are a fan of Jason Mratz, Bruno Mars, Adele, and similar styles of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fave songs March 22, 2013
By kt
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I love Lego House, and Sunburn (which kind of reminds me of Tracy Chapman's Fast Car). Great variety on this album, so glad I bought it. Easily several favorites on it - the sound is one that is hard to get sick of ... a chronic problem with CD's even from great artists .. you get sick of their sound by track 11. Not here.
My husband really likes Grade 8. My 2 year-old twins like to rock out to the song as well. (Another reason this deserves 5*'s... they are so cute when they dance!)
Thanks Ed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Perfection! June 15, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I have been enraptured with Ed Sheeran's music for about a year now and I have been waiting anxiously for this album to comes to the States and immediately purchased it as soon as it was available. At first I was afraid that I built his album up in my head due to my excitement but after listening to it several times, I can safely say that "+" is truly an incredible work of art!

There is a healthy mix of ballads and faster songs, so you never feel like the album is too slow or too fast and there is a wonderful simplicity to how he forms his music and builds it up with his lyrics and beats. I really appreciate the lyrical content and the meanings behind all of his songs.

I cannot recommend this album enough to everyone, please if you're not sure about it just take a small leap of faith and buy it, you will not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic new singer/songwriter March 7, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Ed Sheerhan got my attention when he wrote and performed the closing song for The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. The song was very moving and I just had to find out if he had done any other work. I was delighted to find he had just recently put this collection out. For a young 23 year old, his talent is very impressive. He hasn't been influenced yet by pop-culture and his work is original. I look forward to his future recordings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ed Sheeran January 24, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was thoroughly impressed with "A Team", but I hadn't thought about searching for other songs by this artist...until I was about to get out of my seat after viewing "The Desolation of Smaug". I heard a voice that caused me to stay put long enough to watch the credits roll so I could see who was singing. Sure enough, it was Ed Sheeran. What a voice; what a talent!

Bought this album for myself, and gifted it to two others. Fantastic!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Um...YES. October 23, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I bought this album for only 3.99 on amazon. Would've paid full price for it too. Ed Sheeran's melodies and lyrics are like honey. They're so calming and smooth and amazing. I absolutely loved this album and can't wait for his next!

PARENTAL WARNING: Some songs do contain cursing such as You Need Me I Don't Need You and Wake Me Up. I love these songs and just tend to skip over the *bleep*

Absolutely amazing album that will not disappoint!

2.0 out of 5 stars Turns out I am not a fan of Ed Sheeran
I liked a few of his singles, but I couldn't even finish this album I hated it so much! I believe he is a bit too poppy for my taste and I can't get over his accent sometimes.

A Team drew me in, and A Team kept me. The other songs didn't really light me up on this one. I went for the whole album during a sale on Amazon, and don't regret it. Read more
