The debut from tweener scream dream Ed Sheeran is "+" and it's on Elektra from late last year and it's lamer than lame. Didja ever watch the totally whacked and wonderful "Girls" on HBO? Remember neurotic Hannah's hot roommate, Marnie and her clingy, totally annoying boyfriend, Charlie? Well, Sheeran could be Charlie (who does have a lame band on the show) as he offers one heartfelt whine-o-gram after another. Remember the toga party in "Animal House" when John Belushi kills Stephen Bishop's guitar on the staircase? Well, Sheeran is Bishop but you would not apologize for this seriously "-" music.
