After Hours Tracklist:
This album isn’t for basic pop lovers. This album is a complicated story that’s filled with tragic events and unfortunate behavior. It’s a beautiful album, and very well done work! One of my favorite albums so far. This isn’t necessarily for the Starboy listeners.
From the first track (one of my top favorites off the album) , Alone Again until the last note of the album I was taken on a journey of emotions that went from melancholy to elation and back again. His description of the album is brilliant and spot on. R and B, for those who have seem to have forgotten, stands for rhythm and blues. Rhythm and BLUES, people!! For those who were expecting a fast paced dance album, first off- you are not familiar with The Weeknd. Next, no one wanted B. B. King to step it up a couple of beats. Only using the two in comparison regarding the fact that neither of them had an entire album on the dance top 40. Never would liken them in any other respect. iTunes is pretty gracious in that it lets you sample the album before you buy it or even listen to it if you have Apple Music. So to those complaining about wasted money or time, maybe you need to be reacquainted with this feature. It’s pretty user friendly. When I listen to this album I can be crying and then in a couple of minutes I’m dancing- and this can be achieved all in one song! Currently listening to In Your Eyes on loop ( which has to be my new favorite, knocking Blinding Lights down a spot which I listened to for about 6 hrs the other night 😅). It’s a great album with a lot of depth. Read the description Apple Music gives, do a quick run through of sampling every song then buy the album. I’m not sure what some of these other people were expecting but this pleasantly surprised me and I hope you find the same.
Abel always delivers great music and this one will be no doubt amazing. After hours is a haunting song and builds into 6 minutes of perfect listening pleasure.🎶 I’m sure the rest of the album after the first 3 single releases will be incredible. Bravo👏 I predicted this would be great after the first 3 singles, wow! One of his best, if not the best 👍 Grammys got this one wrong! He should have been nominated for song, record and album of the year! 🤨 and won all 3
‘After Hours’ by The Weeknd exceeded all my expectations with this masterpiece as he succeeded in indulging us in a sonic universe soaking us in melancholic emotions like grief, regret, hindsight, and wanderlust. Themes regarding love are ironically tied within lyrics regarding a sense loneliness which no one is better at than Abel.
Whoever doesn’t like this album is stupid ahaha. The Weeknd always makes the best albums & although we’ve been waiting hella long for this album I am so proud of how far he has come. I love The Weeknd so much <3!!! This album is so good cause it brings some roots and elements to his older albums!!! Ughh my baby is just the best 🥰🥰
The mix of traditional pop and trap sounds mixed in with Weeknd’s R&B melodies makes for some of his best work to date. This album will age and already has aged like fine wine, can’t find one flaw in it.
If everyone complained every year that they didn’t get a Grammy nomination, they would be sore losers. Tons of artists are skipped over every year that deserve a Grammy nomination. I liked this guy until he went and complained like a big baby about not getting a Grammy nomination. Bye, Felicia! 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄
anyone who feels this album is TOO slow doesnt mean this album is trash. he is an r&b artist what did you expect? universal genre artist. dont talk about music when most of you probably listen to youngboy and think his music is the best thing youve heard in years.
Notice all the five-star reviews were done prior to the album being released? Silly fans will give praise to content they never even heard. You would be wise to check out the reviews posted AFTER this trash was released. One good song drowned out by a whole bunch of whining. Such a lazy effort. Heavy pass.
