Sheeran, E. (2014). x [CD]. Los Angeles, US: Atlantic Records.
In his second album, x, Sheeran offers listeners a balance of up-beat and slow songs for a variety of moods: happy, sad, angry, in love. It features hit songs “Don’t,” “Sing,” “Thinking Out Loud,” and “Bloodstream,” which offer a sampling of the diverse types of songs on the album.
As is his style, Sheeran mixes pop styles with rap to create easy-listening songs. His music would appeal to anyone interested in mellow pop songs which feature a uniqueness that could only be attributed to Sheeran’s flare.
Because of the diversity of song types which can appeal to many moods listeners might be in, I give this album a 4.5 out of 5.
