℗ 2020 The Weeknd XO, Inc., marketed by Republic Records, a division of UMG Recordings, Inc.
After Hours Tracklist:
The Blinding lights song sounds like a knock off cheesy 80’s synth pop (Young Turks from Rod Stewart) with no rhythm or chord modulations whatsoever. I should know, I am a child of the 80’s. If you’re not then don’t even try. It sounds a bit underdone and needs work still. Plus the album cover is scawy. What is he trying to channel this time, MJ’s thriller again? Just sayin’
A fantastic showcase of God-given talent. The Wknd made it big with the industry’s typical pop song laden with drug references (I can’t Feel My Face). His various other works including Blinding Lights proves he is far much more. A revival of the 1980’s “Thriller” but yet a shining original. The King of Pop should be proud of the talent following in his footsteps. 🔥🔥
I’ve waited so long for the album and it was 10x times better than i expected 🔥 The Weeknd can’t stop making hit im listening to the album all day everyday since it came out🔥what a masterpiece
all y’all saying it sounds the same are all caps and don’t know how his music works. listen to the album carefully and if you can relate to it you will but if you can’t you will never like it. open your mind and listen to the creativity of it. you guys just listen for the beat and not for the lyrics
I always loved the weekends music and love this album while some people might disagree all his songs have a deeper meaning that connect to you in a deeper way and if you can’t connect to it then it’s not for you but don’t hate just because you don’t understand that deeper meaning :).
Good music is music that elicits feelings and this album delivers!! You can literally feel these songs. Such a vulnerable, emotional, sensual, sexy mix of lyrics and beats. On repeat. Can't get enough!
First of all, let me say one thing: Personally, I love The Weeknd. He works so hard to make music and he dumped his heart and soul into this album, so please don’t hate so much! It’s okay if you don’t like the album, but that doesn’t mean you need to pour hate on The Weeknd and his music. Anyways, I think this album does not fall short of my expectations. One of my favorite albums of all time! Definitely recommend!
It’s so refreshing to hear a 80s style album made by one of the best singers of our generation. I love this album and I don’t dislike a single song on it, my least favorite is too late but you can still groove along to how the song plays. Well done Abel and I wouldn’t be surprised if this won album of the year.
I don’t get how you people can say this is trash...The whole album and vibe is extremely cinematic. Great concepts. Great songwriting. Unique beats. Awesome album. Abel switches it up for a minute and y’all start hatin. My guy killed it again. The throwback vibe is dope af. Believe that! XO
The Weeknd does not disappoint with this album. Flawless execution of bringing in new, different sounds without having to sacrifice his clout in the mainstream world. Great piece of artwork from start to finish.
By far his best album since Trilogy which is refreshing cause he blended that sound with his pop side along with 80’s music so beautifully. U can tell the production feels rich and clean, well done Abel
“Hardest to Love” and “Scared to Live” knocked on the door of my heart. Tremendous vulnerability. This guy sings from the heart and is really showing a window into his soul during his journey. So many artists nowadays when they make it big stop experiencing and stop writing about what matters to them. Maybe they numb out and stop feeling. But this guy’s heart is still beating. 🎧😭🍾🥂🙏🙏🙏
Total crap! Not even one song of his on this album I like smh an I always love most of his music on his albums but, not this time around. Not to mention his creepy a** album cover. Smh once I’ve seen that, I knew this album was going to be a “ miss “ smh
I’m not that much of an fan of this song, it’s ok, but these guys have been on the charts for about 2 months now, and it’s kind of getting annoying. Can people please stop giving this song attention?
