Take Me Back to London
Jet-plane, headed up to the sky Spread wings in the clouds, getting high We ain't hit a rave in a while So take me back to London Yo, I do deals but... See the rest of the song lyrics

    Sheeran has delivered a solid commercial showcase of the power of contemporary pop music brands. It is a case of Superstars Assemble. A fan base shared is a fan base multiplied.

    Unsurprisingly, the end result sounds not unlike a Top 20 rundown or Spotify’s Hot Hits UK playlist. That should give you an idea of whether you’ll like it. ... Sheeran succeeds in pulling off his patent trick of simultaneously stunning you with the pitiless commercial efficiency of his writing while retaining a certain ordinary-bloke humanity.

    Overall, No 6 Collaborations Project is an eclectic mix of songs, some familiar, some forgotten after the first listen and some deeply impactful.

    It’s less an album, more a collection of savvy and generally savvy collaborations which blurs traditional genre boundaries unselfconsciously and acknowledges that Latin-pop is the sound of the near-future. Most of the time, it’s a credit to Sheeran’s songwriting skills and well-honed persona.

    Sheeran’s unobtrusively sweet voice easily slips between genres, but he struggles to connect with many of his A-list guest artists, deepening the album’s isolated mood.

    Few releases have been as baldly transparent and destined for ubiquity as No.6, which has all the conspicuous mining of a Drake album, but very little of the finesse or cultural fluency.

    On this record, he’s taking a stab at, well, every genre. It doesn’t pay off, though, because this effort results in a sense of emptiness, an abyss of authenticity or real feeling. And that’s the problem: Despite writing “emotional” ballads for a huge part of his career, none of us really have any idea who Ed Sheeran is.

    Icónico el patrón de la década. Todas sus colaboraciones fueron demasiado buenas. Se reinventó y nos dio otra biblia

    No. 6 Collaborations Project es sin duda un disco muy ambicioso en todos los sentidos, repleto de generos a los cual Ed Sheeran nos tiene poco acostumbrados.
    Recomiendo altamente las canciones "Beautiful People", "Cross Me", "Remember The Name" y "Blow" que desde mi perspectiva son las mas magicas en todo el disco.

Most of the lyrics sound somewhat cheesy and repetitive and lacks creativity and finesse. Ed Sheeran's rap parts were not that pleasant to listen to, and the beats were all generic as well. The saving graces have to be Antisocial, Best Part Of Me and I Don't Care. Expand

Most of these songs aren't memorable or good. This feels like an album that used the outtakes of Divide and X as well as style emulations that don't quite work. Overall, just don't listen. It's not worth it. Expand
