he seems nice.
I didn't mind that A-Team song.

I tried listening to the X album but it wasn't for me.
Haven't heard any of his grime stuff

I like ES and most of his songs. However I find one of the biggest problems with the pop world is that the main stream radio stations play their songs to death which ends up making you hate the artist and song. If you heard it maybe once a day, it would be fine, but when you hear it 10 times a day, it really puts you off. Well, that's my opinion anyhow.

He seems a nice chap so I wish him well. His music is not to my personal taste, but I have sung along to a couple of his singles in the car if they come on the radio.

That clip of Wayne Rooney crooning to one of his songs is good. If you can watch more than 10 seconds of this, you're a tougher person than me:

“Bands now go cap-in-hand to the industry and the industry has already decided what it wants for the f**king chart stars,”

“Every single song in the Top 10 is the same s**t with a different voice. If you’re number one in the charts now, it automatically means you must be s**t.”



Yeah, Ed Sheeran bores me shitless. A bit trendy to hold an acoustic and sing folky earthy stuff, but it's transparently fake and just shite.

Gallagher re-iterated his wish to play Glastonbury Festival next summer, suggesting that he will “bring his amp and guitar” regardless of whether Michael Eavis officially books him.

I was the idea behind Nandos Skank with Example & Ed.

He writes all his own stuff and if your on his back beacuse of Noel Gallager then shame on you.
This is interesting.

He does always seem like a very nice guy and i certainly would not deny he worked hard to become famous.

However, my point is more about whether he actively sought to kind of go much more mainstream and poppy, or whether he was moulded to do so by another, or whether it was all part of the grand plan.

Just seems like he shifted genre/appeal quite massively to me.

He came to the Steamboat Tavern in Ipswich recently. Years ago i would have gone to see him. In fact i did a few times. Now it was not in the least bit appealing.

I would cry 'sell-out', maybe even the most successful sell-out in the last 20 years, but not sure if that is fair. Hence a debate.

I much prefer the early stuff then the new stuff to be fair, so I get where your coming from.

I just to go and see him play in pubs in front of 10 people and thats when he was raw and I saw the talent then.

I think the steamboat gig was the famous Liverpool 3-3 night!

Ive seen him so much I dont enjoy the big venues beacuse of it. Last gig I went to which I thought was great was Albert Hall where he actually agreed to play for Cancer Trust after Noel had begged him too. Now he is shit. Funny that.

O2 gigs didnt really do it for me....

It's just bland shite for the Reading & Leeds crowd. I like pop music a lot, in fact Taylor Swift's new album is probably my album of 2014, but there's nothing about Ed Sheeran that would make me want to listen to him. I probably wouldn't change the radio station or whatever if one of his songs came on though, not worth the effort. Is this what the middle classes really like?

Plus he's a ginger, so **** him.

I also love a good bit of pop, but I can't stand Taylor Swift. There's a thin line between polished and too polished and she went past it towards too polished along time ago.

Her new album does what it's meant to very well. Solid pop album.

Won lots of awards, everyone seems to want to sing his songs at Karaoke - but having heard him a few times, I think that he is over-rated.

Don't dislike him, nor really appreciate him. Am just amazed that someone like him, looks wise, has done so well and is mega popular (apparently). Power to him.

That said, I suspect the expectation over 200,000 "one gig a year" punters at Wembley in the summer could prove his undoing. (Much in the so way that Knebworth dispelled the myth of Noel Gallagher Lonely Hearts Club Band).

I seem to dislike him because he's so popular and rich. I imagine he cries himself to sleep over it.

when a a teenager puts on an album or song and their parent says they like it or suggests they should go together to see that artist live, then that is the death of rock n roll.

watered down,inoffensive ,industry friendly corporate shite. Surpassed only by coldplay in music that should automatically carry the death sentence for being played in public.
