Weeknd Drops New Mixtape
2011-12-21 by William Lim | 69 Comments
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.

I feel like this could definitely be the best. There were some kinda boring tracks on HOB, not so much with this one.

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.

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.

"Outside" reminds me of the Lucy Lui fight scene in Kill Bill, only instead of fighting they like scissor and stuff.
