Hi!

Thank you for the question. I know when Divide first came out, Ed said that his favorite song on it was “Perfect.” I was expecting something great, because I love “Thinking Out Loud” – that song is genius.

UO: I think Ed’s album is much inferior to Harry’s, and “Perfect” shows lazy, derivative songwriting. It’s taking every love song in a waltz tempo (“Unchained Melody,” “Come Away with Me,” “Moon River”), making it as bland as possible, throwing a selection of “white guy romantic lyrics” at it, and calling it a song.

While I don’t think “Sweet Creature” is Harry’s best song on the album, it’s a good song, done honestly and with honest intentions. “Perfect” is a day-old Big Mac with fancy ketchup. “Sweet Creature” is a good homemade burger, with real ingredients.

I hope Ed fans aren’t mad… I just think he could do better.
