I got the new Ed Sheeran album
So, a couple of weeks ago I got Ed Sheeran’s new album Divide and I thought I would share my feelings on all the songs with you!
To me, Eraser sounds like the next part of You Need Me I Don’t Need You and Take It Back. I always really like his more rap/hip hop sounding songs, and this one was a good first track for the album. I like the extended live version you can find on youtube even better.
Castle on the Hill
This song always fills me with a happy kind of nostalgia every time I hear it. My favorite part of the song is when he talks about where all his friends are today.
I’ll admit, the first time I heard Dive, I didn’t love it. The second time I heard it, however, is when I realised that I really loved this song. There’s something about singing about falling in love too quickly,or too easy that makes this such a great song.
Shape of You
I love this song. Don’t is my favorite Ed Sheeran song and this song reminds me of that one a lot. It’s very catchy and pop sounding, but has Ed’s distinctive lyrics, which makes it stand out from other pop songs.
This is one of the most romantic songs on the album. I think I like this song so much, because it seems so real. Instead of the unattainable love that some songs talk about, it feels like a normal, sweet, romance.
This is my absolute favorite song on this album. Galway Girl is so catchy and fun, and tells a whole story in under 3 minutes. I could have this song playing on repeat for a week.😉
Happier is one of those songs that I just love to listen to, because the lyric are so good. It makes me feel something every time I hear it.
When I read the title for this song, I pictured a sad breakup song. Wrong. New Man sounds like part 2 of The Man, except now the girl’s kind of tired of the new guy. This is another one of my favorites.
Hearts Don’t Break Around Here
This song has one of my favorite lines on the whole album. “And tin wind chimes used for doorbells” is such a romantic picture to me.
What Do I Know
This is one of the odder songs on the album, to me, it sounds very 70’s, which I kind of like. I also like how layered Ed’s voice is in the chorus.
How Would You Feel (Paean)
I love the imagery in this song, it feels so romantic, sweet, and young.
This is the saddest song on the album. I like it, but I can’t see myself listening to it too much, because it breaks my heart every time I hear it.
I’m not sure how much I like this song. It’s not a bad song, but I just can’t seem to get into it right now. We’ll see how I feel about it later on.
Bibia Be Ye Ye
Another questionable one. Again I don’t dislike it, but I don’t love it either. There’s just something too beach-y about these two songs for me to really like them.
This song reminds me of the pirate shanties that played on Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag whenever you sailed a ship. Since I loved some of those songs, I consider that a good thing.
This song feels both sad and hopeful to me, at the same time. It’s not one of my favorites right now, but I do like it.
I’m happy to say that Divide lived up to all my expectations, and I really love this album.
What was your favorite song from Divide?
