While I do think that Ed has certainly improved here from +, he still does have a long way to go. X is far more pop-focused with much catchier songs some alright and some are just awful. My biggest complaint here is definitely the rapping, Ed is not a rapper nor should he ever try it, it's corny and utterly cringe-worthy.

Best Track: Thinking Out Loud
Worst Track: Don't

The saddest thing about Ed Sheeran is that he's often praised for being a "songwriter" for his own music because his lyrics are actually pretty bad. Truthfully, though, outside of his singles there's NOTHING redeemable about his music. This album belongs alongside Adele's last two albums and Taylor Swift's 1989 in the SUVs of soccer moms nationwide.

Following a few mediocre and below-mediocre releases, Ed brings his vivid songwriting to a new meaning and actually writes some genuinely passionate songs. Most of the stuff on this album is what Ed is most credited and recognized for. Many songs have defined this decade's pop sound. I liked it. I thought it was a pretty solid release, considering my low views on his previous projects. This is most definitely Ed's best album.
