  • Whether a veiled ad for Sheeran's discography, MacBooks (no obscured logos here) or Apple Music itself, this Apple Music-exclusive documentary still inspires.

  • Don't Look Back it isn't, but Songwriter - a documentary about Ed Sheeran co-produced by Apple Music and featuring a boatload of Apple products - is an interesting window into the creation of a modern pop behemoth all the same.

  • For better or worse, it's the kind of feature one can imagine being presented on one side of a DualDisc album edition, if only Sheeran's primary demographic still consumed physical media.

  • Banal adventures of a bland superstar.

  • There is no romantic tragedy, nor even a visible grit in the oyster: just a dogged, talented, unassuming professional showing us that it's about the perspiration, not just the inspiration.

  • If you're a fan of Ed Sheeran, you will love this documentary of the process of his songwriting, with a little bit of a background on the man behind the guitar and mic.
