    OK, fair enough, he's paid his busking dues, and he's patently a nice humble bloke, albeit ginger, and now he's got a record to sell, but the publicity is RELENTLESS. This is a bloke who turns up at The Brits in a suit then gets change into jeans and tee-shirt to go onstage.

    A bit like Ellie Goulding. Complete space cadet at The Brits a couple of years back. Now Pantene 'ambassador'.

    Don't blame either of those kids, expertly steered by their business managers, for cashing in.

    But it's all a bit horrible, no?

    And... RELAX

      It is a bit boring, but I guess I rarely come across either E.S. or E.G., as I don't watch programmes they would feature in, and don't listen to mainstream radio. If I did, I'm sure they'd annoy me more.

      More than a "wee bit". "Music to slash your wrists to" for the most part.

      This thread reminded me of somebody connected with the Brit school telling me that Jessie J will pop back to the school from time to time. Unannounced, she will just go and join in a class. Whereas Adele doesn't want to know. Not that I listen to Adele; I'd have no razor blades left.

      I'm out of touch with yoof music now, and they all tend to irritate me in some ways. I am my Dad.

      Yeah don't get me wrong I like the bloke, and his music is better than most shite nowadays but the media ramming him down the throat constantly is beggining to grate, haven't seen the like for a long time.

      I liked this bit of the recent Grauniad review of his album:

      It is built for emotive moments in churches – a bride’s grand entrance down the aisle or a coffin’s tragic descent into an incinerator

      I listened to his album purely out of interest as to what all the hype was about. I still don't get what the hype is about, its a very average pop record with nothing that made me think "wow this guys is a genius". Very boring music with little to engage with.

      That said the missus and the kids like it so I'm in the minority.
