As transactional as music gets.

It’s too big a stretch for him to convincingly pull off.

It is a record without much coherence or depth, unequal in quality, but it is full of singles.

An album that sounds like a mimesis of the people who gets into the parties he criticizes.

Few releases have been as baldly transparent and destined for ubiquity as No.6, which has all the conspicuous mining of a Drake album, but very little of the finesse or cultural fluency.

53% 6 days ago


The project functions both to gives listeners and longtime fans insight into Sheeran’s taste, while also providing perspective on how he’s looking to spread his musical wings after achieving success within a very specific set of sonic parameters.

Surely the wonkiest album from an A-list pop-star in recent memory.

I think it's best to treat this like a summer compilation.

Spectrum Pulse (CA) Spectrum Pulse (CA)

Refreshing as it whirs away from Ed Sheeran’s tried and tested formula of love songs, it’s worth a listen to catch those glimpses of experimentation.

It’s quite often just par for the course.

This album is such a dramatic shift in style for Ed that it comes off a lot less comfortably than if he had more gradually settled into it.

"No. 6 Collaborations Project" is as soulless as its title.

This hugely likable citizen of the world rarely sounds uncomfortable or out of his depth on No.6 Collaborations Project.

The Galway-born pop star is losing sight of himself and becoming an indivisible contradiction.

it’s an undeniable success, abounding with enough readymade hits to keep the streams steadily coming.

Ed Sheeran's 'No. 6 Collaborations Project' is actually really cute.

NYLON NYLON

It's a nifty showcase for the broadening creative reach of a one-time folk singer who's now decided to dabble in R&B, dance-pop, rap, and even hair metal.

Ed Sheeran’s No. 6 Collaborations Project is a charming, fun, kind of serviceable set of collaborations that firmly cements him as pop’s kingmaker.

The sum here is less than the parts.

It is unlike anything Sheeran has done before: exhilarating, risk-taking, hip-hop-inflected pop that succeeds at every turn.

The Sydney Morning Herald The Sydney Morning Herald (TOP)

Although No 6 Collaborations Project expands his stylistic repertoire, it spreads the narrative substance of his songs too thinly.

An impossibly high level of songwriting and an undeniable joy.

No. 6 Collaborations project just sounds like a guy indulging his eclectic musical tastes and enjoying working with artists he really admires.

As the 15-song album rolls on, its pure pop choruses start to feel like the artist reheating and repurposing his own melodies.

In 10 or 20 years’ time, ‘No. 6 Collaborations Project’ could be the perfect time capsule of what pop was in 2019.

The affable everyman dabbles in grime, hip-hop, balladry and Latino love songs as he zooms down the middle of the road to world domination.

Why iTunes? Why do you allow idiots to rate music that hasn’t been released? There’s no true rating for any album if hundreds of haters are going to give it one star just because they enjoy trolling the artist. You’re becoming the Rotten Tomatoes of music!

Lazy Pop It’s a shame, Ed Sheeran has talent, he just doesn’t use it while making new music. This is just lazy, trash pop, and there’s way too much of that out there already. Most mainstream music is nothing but a bunch of electronic sounds thrown everywhere. We need to go back to not auto tuning the heck out of everything, and actually being able to hear REAL instruments. It’s time we stopped settling for this kind of trash

why stop making trash pop music thank you next
