Lol who you like anywayz man? I like a whole load of types of music. Don't forget we gotta have that catch up real soon! Have you finished your exams btw?
Hey man. I've changed my A-levels to Maths, Physics, 16th Century History and Economics. My GCSEs have all gone pretty well so fingers crossed. I'm not sure what I want to do as a degree: Economics seems great as it would get me into banking and careers seems good, but its very competitve and I might not be as string as others on Maths. History is fun but seems a bit pointless as a degree and I won't gain much knowledge. Engineering looks good but I'm not really that mechanical. For careers I'd like to go into IB or game design using Maths. What've you been up to lately, I went to see Chernobyl Diaries today! Still got the Cambridge ambitions? Done any extra curriculum lately? You?
I love his lyrics - i think they really speak to people in a way that they can connect to
Although some of the songs are pretty depressing, they have quite a calming beat - they're not all angry and annoyed, more sad than anything else
Inspirational? He just writes senseless bull**** over the top of a weak acoustic guitar arrangement which is mostly played through a loop pedal that he doesn't need. Well marketed trash is all he is, there's thousands of artists better at what he does.

I think Alexis Petridis from The Guardian got it right:
The kind of person who once believed the internet would give keen-eared kids the opportunity to break free of the stifling conformity of the music industry and alight on new sounds too groundbreaking, confrontational and futuristic for cautious record companies to countenance might let out a little yell of horror at Sheeran's rise. The kids who like him do indeed appear to have spent the last few years ignoring the sclerotic conformity of the music industry – but have been listening instead to something that sounds exactly like it could have been released by a major record company.
