Ed Sheeran Dreadful!

Recommended Posts

I honestly don't think I'd know an Ed Sheeran song if one was played to me. That's actually not something I'm proud of, because to have become so unaware of new music means that I've almost certainly missed some great stuff as well as the less great.

I wouldn't say I've lost interest in music so much, just that I don't seem to have the patience any more to listen to a load of stuff I don't like in order to find the odd gem that I do.

He seems to be the solo equivalent of coldplay i.e. maybe one OK track, and then hundreds of bland variations on a theme. With Ed Sheehan though, I couldn't work out which is supposed to be the good track.

Feel sorry for the kids being brought up on the shite that passes for music these days.

I know that sounds very, 'when I were a boy' but let's face it, it's the musical equivalent of McDonald's. Bland, cheap, corporate and instantly forgettable.

I knew things had gone very wrong a few years back when I went to a U2 gig - don't take the piss, Bono's a gobshite but they've done some good tunes- and half way through, the band announced that we were to be treated to a 'new' song.

What followed was, I swear to God, a musical advert for Apple in song form. Nobody was less surprised than me when U2 started doing TV ads for Apple soon after.

If you have the misfortune to any any of those shitefactor singers, all the blokes especially, sound exactly the same. At least, back in the day, you knew your Kurt Cobain's voice to a Mick Jagger's or a David Bowie's...

I'm honestly baffled as to why he's such a sensation. I love good songwriting of all kinds, and I'm a sucker for a well-written soppy pop song, but the stuff I've heard of his seems like absolute dross - with the exception of 'The A Team' or whatever it was called which was a decent enough tune. I wonder is it because he plays the guitar, is that seen as such a rare thing nowadays to have a singer-songwriter that plays the guitar.

I don't hear many well written melodies these days, and much of popular songwriting seems to take a single brief hook and milk it to absolute death rather than have a well written song with an interesting middle 8 ect...

Mainstream music and culture has always been largely shite. It gives you something to kick back against. The main problem with music these days is that nothing seems to have moved on in 20+ years.

Off to see Guns n Roses in June. Where are all the bands like that nowadays?

I saw them a few years ago, supporting Thin Lizzy. They kept us waiting so long, if I hadn't been with someone else I would have walked out. As it was, he came on at 11pm and alternated between G&R and the band's own solo stuff. Loads of people were walking out.

They have the original line-up now though, and Axl has a clause in his contract basically banning him from fucking about.
