DIVIDE REVIEW

Ed Sheeran recently emerged back into the music scene after his much-needed break from social media. It all started with the unexpected release of the singles “Castle on a Hill” and “Shape of You”, which gave fans the perfect taste of what was to come. Though some people were worried about the over-produced, pop-y vibe that the singles exuded, once the rest of the album was released, all fans could breathe a sigh of relief. Not only does the album have a pop feel that allows Ed to fit into mainstream music, it has songs such as “Supermarket Flowers” and “Happier” that have a more acoustic sound reminiscent of his earlier days as a musician. Not to mention, there were even some songs like “New Man” and “Eraser” that showed off his rapping skills. As a loyal fan since his debut album +, I didn’t expect anything less than what Ed shared with the world, which was music that told tales of love and woe, capable of making the listener dance and cry all at the same time.
