With the steady stream of singles, I've been under-impressed despite the fact they have all done well on radio and streaming. 

They seem underdone. Ed's distinctive voice is often disguised through pitch changing and vocoders making him sound like a generic neo soul rap singer. 

It's not to say this collection is bad. It's fine but it's not up to Ed's high standards. It feels like its a contractual obligation which he's getting through with a little help from his friends.
