Stylistically Kiss Land is more similar to EoS imo. First three tracks are so dense in sound, it's unreal.

On google, go to search tools, click on any time, choose past hour. Should be able to find a link.



oyeah





obrigado



First half of EoS is miles beyond this IMO. I really loved this when it first dropped and still do like it a lot, but if I listen to Weeknd these days I usually just listen to EoS.



The first half of this is probably the best of The Weeknd's career. EoS is much more consistent though. Not sure which I prefer.

Yeah. Agreed. Really not sure about Kiss Land atm, this isn't like HoB or Thursday bar LITS and the title track. It's good upon first listen, just not sure how good yet.

IDK "What You Need" was always really mediocre to me, and the party & the after party is one of my fav tracks off this. "High For This" will always be amazing though.

"Coming Down" and "Loft Music" are probably my favs, besides "High For This". I really dig Thursday (mixtape), just gotta be in the mood for that one.

Coming Down and Loft Music are some of his weakest tracks imo. Still love them though. The Zone, Gone

and Rolling Stone (all of Thursday) are the only tracks which do barely anything for me. Though I

don't like The Party & The After Party much either.



What You Need was my first Weeknd track. It's so succulent and atmospheric. You can feel the desire in

his voice. High For This and Wicked Games are probably his best, but Initiation and The Fall are up

there.

This is the only release by the Weeknd I've ever cared much about. So many memorable tracks to me, many of them showcasing a style Tesfaye seems to abandon on the later mix tapes. If he'd continued with the atmospherics of tracks like Loft Music and The Knowing, I'd be all over this entire trilogy.

This was the only one that hit me from the start. Thursday and EoS are growers.

Omaha, not sure how you'll feel about the new one then. It's a mixed bag of Tesfaye. See, I love the ones you don't fish. haha. The only song of his i have to skip is 'Same Old Song', cannot stand it.

I deleted the bonus tracks, don't care for them at all. Didn't like odd look when it came out. I don't

really care for remixes either tbh.

Yeah, Belong To The World sits comfortably within the album rather than as a single. Only track I'm really not sure of is Wanderlust.
