The Weeknd does it again


Beauty Behind the Madness

The Weeknd - 2015

The weeknd proves himself again on his sophomore album. Almost two years since his last major project the weeknd comes back with banger after banger. Singles including Often, The Hills, Can't Feel my face, and Earned it. This album focuses on his struggles in life and his struggles finding the right girl without basically screwing her over. Starting with Real Life, he talks about his life and how he seems to always push the people he loves away. The weeknd grabbing kanye west to produce the song Tell Your friends was also very interesting. The beat was a classic "college dropout" beat. The weeknd is turning into the captain of the Alternate R&B world with this new project. I give this album a 4 out of 5 because although this is a fantastic album i feel that it is still missing some of the weeknd vibe that came with Kiss Land and Trilogy.

Favorite Tracks: Dark Times, In the Night, Aquainted 

Least Favorite Track: Angel

I really like his first mixtape, "House of Balloons", but I've liked each release from him less and less since then. I haven't checked this one out yet though. Thanks for the recommendation!
