Give it to us straight. Be honest.

YESTERDAY, PEOPLE ACROSS the country began queuing for Ed Sheeran tickets that don’t go on sale until tomorrow, according to DailyEdge.

The English singer is due to play seven concert dates in Ireland over the summer months and fans are keen.

There’s no disputing that Ed seems a sound chap, but his music can be quite divisive these days.

The Guardian‘s Ian Gittins recently labelled him “sparky, sexy and unstoppable”, while pronouncing he is “great live”.

But in a Hot Press review around the same time, Peter McGoran wrote that he was “unbearably bland and dull” during a 19-song show at the 3Arena. Although he admitted he was – at times – “exhilarating”, he concluded that he’s “still not sold”.

What about you? Do you like Ed Sheeran’s music?


Poll Results:

Yes (4774)
Meh (2839)
No (2741)
Never heard of him (226)
