Ed Sheeran has incorporated a larger variety of musical instruments, beats, and vocal range in this album. The tracks are mellow and delightful, leaving an uplifting feeling for the listener. I often found myself tapping my feet, and bobbing my head to the music. The listener is able to identify with the lyrics however some are artistic stories. Ed has included melodies from Irish, African, and Spanish music and they are mixed seamlessly into his songs. This album is worth a listen!
