Today is the day Sheerios (that’s Ed Sheeran fans to the uninitiated) have been waiting for. ‘÷’ is finally out and available to devour to your heart’s content. We’ve given our reaction to the singer-songwriter’s highly-anticipated return, but what do the die-hards make of Sheeran’s third record? Turns out the reaction is unanimously positive, while the album should raise the profits of tissue makers everywhere.
These early reactions are pretty strong…

There’s a lot of crying going on around the world right now
Consider this a warning to get a pack (or three) of tissues ready before you press play.

Even former Fifth Harmony singer Camila Cabello is getting in on the weepy act
Not even the stars are immune to Ed’s emotional power.

Just as well it’s nearly Mother’s Day
Put the album on when you’re trying to find a present for your mum.
