Watching an Ed Sheeran concert in front of a huge, very enthusiastic audience. Seems like a good bloke but I just can't take to his music - simply does nothing for me. All seems very same-ish and a bit bland.

Am I alone - am I missing something ?

I'd agree.

Right there with you. He's just so bland. I don't understand how people tell him apart from any other faux-sensitive singer-songwriter type with a whiney falsetto voice.

For a fat, stumpy ginger bloke, he's done incredibly well.

I certainly don't dig his music but I can see why other people do.

This is exactly it. He makes music for people who don't like music.

Coldplay's worst music is still ten times more listenable than Ed Sheran.

He's fat no longer. But he is ginger and stumpy with a hair cut worse then EF from 5 years ago.

But then again he's loaded and plays the guitar.

Oh, for sure. Comes across as a champion bloke but I'd rather insert pins into the shaft of my cock than listen to his music.

I think he's dead inside. I look into his eyes and i see the abyss, I hear his voice and I hear the sound of nothingness.

I wouldn't pay for any of his work but I hardly find it repulsive. There's plenty worse out there.

Indeed, plus I really like his,productions, he is immensely talented.

Good bloke story was he bought all his staff a car for xmas a couple of years back, he just asked them what they wanted. One of his engineers chose a 911 another a Skoda Fabio , much hilarity ensues when they all go back to work.

Plus he looks disturbingly like the smaller brother of another Ed, namely Ed Quirk*.

Nothing else. He knows his audience just like James Blunt.

Generalising perhaps, but women seem to take to those depressing songs. They creamed over Adele's boring "Hello" song sadsacking about some ex (apologies to globus, I acknowledge you enjoyed that track too).

My wife and kids don't mind him.

Should I stick pins in them instead?

Hey, I like plenty of mellow/depressing/emotional songs, but it's his style that I just don't get. Minimalist acoustic guitar with the downbeat melody and slightly whiney voice. Lots of women do seem to enjoy that kind of "faux-sensitive singer-songwriter type with a whiney falsetto voice", as HC* put it. The missus loves it, I just don't get it.

I think that a possible reason for me disliking his music rather than just feeling meh about it is the amount of radio airtime and adulation he gets. Some of his songs aren't actually bad, I just don't get excited for them and then hear them a million times on certain stations. You end up getting sick of it.


*The more HC posts the more I'm convinced that she's not actually a woman, she's far too sensible and together.

I know I hear his music as ambient noise frequently but I would be hard pushed to recognise any single song.

when I do ask or kind of pair it I know I generally go , meh,

so wallpaper music

One heck of a decent bloke. He pitched up at my poorly God daughters(who is a fan) hospital bed and serenaded her with her pink Eukele. He arrived solo, having caught the bus down and stayed for a couple of hours.

He has since constantly kept in touch, he sends her gifts frequently.

She's off to one of his sound tests soon.

With any luck he will patron our charity.

Not really my thing but find it hard to understand why he's so reviled beyond merely being successful, and the stigma associated with sufferers of gingeritis.

That's brilliant. He does seem to be a genuinely sound lad, whatever about his music.
