7/10 Jack Customer review, 30th December 2017
I'm not a big fan of The Weeknd but I will have to admit, when I heard this for the first time, I was like 'woe'. I feel like this album should be on a score for a movie. Particularly the song "Wicked Games", well produced with its array of lazy and lush sounds, the backdrop for "Wicked Games" is stunning and different from any other R&B cut out there. Very much a member of the 'bohemian,' Alt-R&B movement, The Weeknd is in a league that includes Frank Ocean and if you were not in the mood to get in on it, you will be after hearing this album.
