DIVIDE by Ed Sheeran, Asylum/Atlantic Records
Right from the very first track I knew Ed Sheeran’s latest offering was going to be good.
As the songs played out there was a different theme and rhythm for each tune and I was instantly gripped.
For me, the two record-breaking comeback singles ‘Castle on the Hill’ and ‘Shape of you’ stood out for their upbeat tunes and lyrics.
But all the songs are perfect for almost every mood. The most catchy was probably ‘Galway Girl’, ‘Happier’ is a really sweet, sad song too. And ‘Hearts Don’t Break Around Here’ is another cracking song, with a really chilled vibe to it.
I particually enjoyed listening to the album’s lyrics, sometimes funny, sometimes really meaningful and true – and Ed also relates to real life experiences and puts them into the songs.
He has sold 23 million albums worldwide, as has already been seen, and this one will sell millions more. It is his best so far.
It has unique and interesting themes throughout, I loved it and I would recommend it to all fans of good music.
