This track is more alternative rock than pop, IMO, which works for Ed, since his sound is comprised of a little bit of everything really. Out of the two singles Ed released, I would say I enjoy "Shape of You" better, though they are both of an entirely different sound. For those complaining that he released two songs that were more superficial than most of his prior stuff, I think he probably did that to attract a wider crowd (being off the grid for a year can really mess with your placement on the pop charts). I have a feeling his heavier stuff is saved for the album. In particular, I'm excited for "Supermarket Flowers."

This is the PERFECT tune to listen to when driving with the top (or, in my case, windows) down. It was the de facto "soundtrack of my summer" for 2017. I hewed to a much straighter course in my teenage years than Sheeran relates in "Castle," but this winsome song effortlessly elicits feelings of nostalgia for simpler times in days gone by...and even for unavoidable youthful mistakes. Without hesitation, I give this pop-rock track an exuberant five stars!
I am not a huge ed sheeran fan, but I do like a couple of his songs. This is song is one of my favorites. It has that old U2 sound and makes you just bob your head while in the car. I like how he hits the high notes in part of the chorus. This white boy can really sing!
This is the song I was listening to when I found out my friend Matt died. Now it reminds me of him-- and makes me wish someone could "take me back to when" things were simpler, and life made sense, before he had that heart attack at 45 and left a wake of grief and confusion and shock. I listen to it all the time now, and it makes me think of him.
Ed Sheeran back at it again with an awesome single. I listen to this song almost every day, especially on my way home from work... seems kinda corny but after a hard days work this song.. seems to energize me as I walk home, it also makes me think about the family and friends I sort of left behind and don't talk to anymore... want to reconnect with them
