    meh. he has potencial... but i feel like the concept is really weak and the topics dont match. the ginger needs more time, taylor swift sponsoring him help with exposure so that is good i guess

    + will give Sheeran's rabid fanbase a lot to love, but it'll also make him an easy target for critics hungry for new directions in pop, as it fails to really gel the man's loves of folk and rap.
