  1. "Is There Someone Else?", yeah. Um. That's it right there.

    I'm low-key a bit "where are the middle 8s" when I was listening to it earlier. It's a trend I just can't get used to. What would Rockin' be if it didn't have that lush vocodored middle 8, or The Hills?

    Anyway, that is just my first thought, but unfortunately my main takeaway from the first listen. Will listen to the album again after work.

  3. Okay after listening to I Heard You're Married I'm so curious what the hell has gone down between Ari and him since The Hills came out.

    This is such a triumph on first listen. It's far more instant than After Hours but I'm not sure I'll find myself listening to singular tracks as much as I did with that. This feels very much like a listening experience, which is strange because it presents as poppier, but it sometimes feels (perhaps purposefully) that these songs are shortened 'radio edits' because the structure of the songs are somewhat atypical in many places.

  5. I’m only four tracks in but I’m bopping hard.
  6. I think I like this even more than After Hours and it's definitely his most realised album yet. Best Friends had no reason to snap like that, especially in the 'easy listening' section.

  8. I'm like seven tracks in and it might be the first The Weeknd album that I not just like, but am genuinely fawning over. I decided to check it out cause I loved the concept, and it sounds precisely how I was hoping for it to sound. What an all-around boppery.
  9. Wow, wow, wow! Abel!!!!

    Where The Weeknd's so good and he plays all week long."

  12. So for me, on first listen on my drive to work this morning. I was a little…disappointed! I think my expectation was for some real individual bangers, and yet this is more of a piece of work as a collective. Which is fine, and now I understand this I know the album will grow. I am relistening now and I know it will grab me more.
  13. Abel tore!! This slaps.
  14. I've only been able to listen to the first half of the album but this is great. Sonically speaking, it feels like he's been building up to this for a really long time, as far back as Starboy. However, this time he's absolutely nailed the execution. Perfect companion piece to After Hours.

  16. What an album. What a superstar.

    Less Than Zero will be a smash.
  17. How Do I Make You Love Me...Cindy, this is excellence. He nails the tone of a midnight drive in the city.
