The difference between this man compared to say Neyo, Bruno Mars or Usher...he goes where the others are afraid to. He sings about what's exactly on his mind in a poetically crude and unapologetic way. If you or I spoke the lyrics to a woman, she'd probably walk off, but coming from Abel? Audio aphrodisiac. This man is a genius.

I was skeptical at first since I already had all his previous mixtapes which make up the majority of "Trilogy". Sure it's remastered but how much better can it be?...turns out...significantly better. Don't get me wrong, the original recordings will always have it's underground grittiness that I love, kinda like vinyl vs cd, but in the remastered version reveals sounds and textures not previously experienced both in the music and in Abel's vocals. There are also some extras thrown in here and there. The new tracks are pure gold and are akin closer to the style of "House of Balloons" and "Thursday"

If you are a fan of The Weeknd, you will love his first official album. If you are not yet familiar with his work, get this album..you won't be disappointed.

For years, I've been told that The Weeknd serenades listeners with the promise of sex. After hearing Earned It (from a soundtrack) and Love Me Harder (a feature) on the radio a few months ago and wanting to hear his own work, I gave him a listen. I was thoroughly surprised and impressed with his work. The Weeknd is unbelievably spectacular for someone whom debuted on YouTube -- in all aspects.

In a nutshell, Trilogy is the story of a man introducing his friend to drugs. They eventually start a complex relationship around each others' abuse. The album follows this story from the very first song where he gives her her first 'glass', and ends with . . . well, I won't tell you. It's 30 songs, but highly worth it. A lot of people complain about the songs sounding similar, but that only happens in the last 4 songs since they're primarily piano.

The Weeknd doesn't sing about sex or drugs in the way that you'd expect from his reputation. There is almost no sex on the album, but rather, implications that it occurred (except for maybe one or two instances). He sings about loneliness, regret, low esteem, and depression. These songs are always placed right after songs where he and his friend are using. He often discusses the negative effect that drugs have on his body and how it's not worth it, but for a moment, you just think it is. Reviewers whom feel he glorifies drug-use may have stopped too early in the album's story to see it begin to fall apart (as early as the 5th song, out of all 30). Even Drake's rap on one song says 'Taking drugs just ain't you, be you'. There's also infidelity and the fear of cheating in particularly heartbreaking songs.

***Fair warning that Weeknd does curse a lot, but who doesn't use 'f*cking' to add emphasis in conversation with friends?

Trilogy (Explicit) is a three-album compilation from Canadian R&B artist the Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye). The Weeknd's brand of R&B is very 'emo' by all means, dabbling in themes incurring both the sensual and substance use. The Weeknd's tenor is as 'sweet' as can be, perhaps most reminiscent to U.S.A. audiences to The-Dream. The three albums that compile the appropriately titled Trilogy are three previously freely distributed mixtapes released in 2011 - House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echoes of Silence respectively. Each mixtape has had its respective nine tracks digital mastered and added a bonus track to compile Trilogy's three distinct, ten track discs. At 30 tracks, The Trilogy is an abundance of material, though also a lot to digest in one setting. Even so, The Weeknd helps to usher in new movements in R&B music and excels at killer ballads.

The first disc of Trilogy is 'House of Balloons,' arguably the best. "High For This" sets the tone possessing a moody, 'stoner' vibe and exhibiting The Weeknd's bright, piercing tenor in all it's glory. "What You Need" epitomizes The Weeknd's lovy-dovy aspirations ("And I'mma love you girl, the way you need/ain't no one goin' to stop us...") while "House of Balloons/Glass Table Girls" serves up one of many solid 'double-tracks.' On "The Morning," The Weeknd continues to excel at his brand of overt-R&B, dropping the `obligatory' f-bombs as well as the sensual.

'House of Balloons' continues being cutting-edge on valedictory cut "Wicked Games," nothing short of one of the more heart-wrenching R&B ballads in years ("Listen ma, I'll give you all I got/get me off of this, I need confidence in myself...

When I first bought this album and saw there were 30 songs I thought two things 1) that's a great deal for the price 2) are all the songs going to sound the same. Thankfully number 2 is not true each song sounds different from the others distinctively and by there being 30 songs I found a lot of favorites Loft music, Birds pt1, House of balloons, wicked games, and a couple more. So if you heard the weekend on a drake or wiz khalifa's song or came across him by accident I suggest buying this album because it does not disappoint, and the coolest thing about the weekend is that he is like a combo of trey songz, r Kelly, Michael Jackson, so many artist elements but he creates his own unique distinctive style and he does it well!
