Following months of rumored release dates and forged album covers, Canadian-Ethiopian R&B singer Abel Tesfaye, better known as The Weeknd, finally released his third "mixtape", Echoes of Silence, to a frenzied and eager Internet audience. It is to be the final release of The Balloon Trilogy.
The release date of the mixtape (December 21st) had been leaked earlier as a rumor, and upon its release at 11:07pm, The Weeknd site was overwhelmed by downloads, resulting in a crash only one minute later. However, it is currently available temporarily (and legally) on HulkShare.com.
Digging: Das EFX - Dead Serious
Possibly my favourite of the three
Digging: Dean Blunt - The Redeemer
Real bad, and boring. One trick pony that can't even do the trick right
omg yr dumb lewis
Weeknd Drops New Mixtape
I hope it didn't break : o
Digging: Swordplay and Pierre the Motionless - Tap Water
Probably the best of the three
Digging: The Constructus Corporation - The Ziggurat
it's only tentative, but right now i'm thinkin...
HOB > EOS > Thursday
they are all equally awesome and perfect and revolutionary incredible masterpieces
House of Balloons >>>>^vvvv Thursday > Echoes of Silence
I'm still partial to Thursday myself.
house of balloons is definitely the best one
Echoes of Silence => HoB > Thursday
house of ball moons
Digging: Sacriphyx - Sacriphyx
Love this new one
Thursday is really hard to get into I found
I feel like this could definitely be the best. There were some kinda boring tracks on HOB, not so much with this one.
Digging: City Of Ifa - Self Titled
Not his best, but still excellent. The Dirty Diana cover is so awesome.
Not his best, perhaps second or maybe just tied with Thursday. Vocals on this can get a bit over the top. Still an excellent album though.
listening for my 6th time, this time with my new sennheisers
all 3 mixtapes are pretty different lewis
Yeah this is pretty amazing, need a few more listens to figure out where I like it out of the 3.
better than the last one but still nothing speshul
Digging: Self Defense Family - Try Me
well obvi i would never deny that
4 tracks in and i'm really not all that impressed. it's good.
this guy always has cool album covers. they kinda look like CENTRUM VITAMINS!!!
Haha, they do
made me laugh
can't get into this guy.
House of Balloons is better but this is still real good. Still haven't listened to Thursday yet
Digging: Pentatonix - PTX Vol. II
thursday is more chilled out/not as dark. all three rule.
also what's up
made my day, fuck ya
Digging: Ryan Adams - Jacksonville City Nights
jk i don't really care.
I'd fuck this guy if I had the chance.
Digging: Obliteration - Black Death Horizon
Echoes = HOB > Thursday
Well he better pick it up.
House of Balloons is better but this is still real good. Still haven't listened to Thursday yet.
Digging: Bolt Thrower - ...For Victory
This is the best thing he's done
Digging: Logos - Cold Mission
Nooooo it's not
Yeah I don't like it better than House of Balloons or Thursday, but it's still amazing.
HoB > Thursday = EoS
lol'd at the usage of the word "drops"
Initiation is fucking siiiiiiick!!!! Actually his Micheal cover is awesome too.
Same Old Song and Next ftw.
this guy is mad prolific
hory shit NEXT is the track of the year.
You Japanese, cirq?
his production went from really good to amazing
i'm talkin bout track 4 yee
holy fuck I think this one is my favorite
He doesn't handle the production.
And yea this is so so good
i'm pretty convinced that these mixtapes are unified by one storyline, and that the trilogy as a whole is one of the best works of music i've ever heard.
I was sippin the haterade. Much better than Thursday. Seemed to work better as background music, though, that's how I finally penetrated this bitch.
thursday may still be my favorite but ugh it's so close
not going to even try. they're all incredible.
Sniper knows wassup in dis BITCH
all i have is hyperbole
clearly im missing something? interested to read a review on this. house of balloons grew on me thanks to its melodies, but im just not hearing it here
Digging: Bomb the Music Industry! - Scrambles
He should pick it up before it gets dirty hehe
Digging: Burial - Rival Dealer
you're probably missing either the incredible beats or the amazing vocals. probably one of those
and the raw as fuck sex and drug references
"Outside" reminds me of the Lucy Lui fight scene in Kill Bill, only instead of fighting they like scissor and stuff.
vocals reminiscent of mj on the first song. i loved house of baloons and thought thursday was pretty good. i can tell im gonna like this one though. love this dude.
it's an mj cover
I can't resist free music and I've been meaning to check this dude out for awhile, so why not. Thanks for posting.
