After Hours Tracklist:
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?
Now that the whole album is out, I have to admit that I’m shocked. It’s just so good. I didn’t realize in my first listen, but after I came back to it, I realized how beautiful it truly is. Easily his best project since trilogy. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 Update: After many listens, I definitely think this is his best project since trilogy, and I think that it his only 10/10 other than trilogy (and HOB by itself). This album is a masterpiece, including the best production I’ve ever heard on an album, having absolutely no skips, and easily being aoty so far. I can’t say I’m too surprised tho, cuz The Weeknd never disappoints!! Amazing album overall!
Let me just start by saying I’m a huge fan of The Weeknd , but I gotta be honest... this album really failed to meet my expectations. I’m only one person so it doesn’t matter , and I’m glad he’s making the music he wants to make. But I found this album to be very slow and boring. The vocal style on a lot of the songs was monotonous and lifeless for me personally , his voice was just way too soft on almost every track... I would say I didn’t care for 70% of the vocals. Like the high pitched voice in the middle of the title track ruined it for me... it’s a shame because every other part was great. And Escape From LA , Snowchild , and Hardest To Love don’t fit on the album at all outside of the mellow vocals. The Weeknd will always be the 🐐 but this album wasn’t worth the 4 year wait at all. I’m lowering my expectations for the next one because having high expectations for After Hours left me disappointed. At least the production on this album is solid though. Kinda shocked at how underwhelming this project is but it is what it is 🤷🏽♂️
Evreyone is talking about how this missed it marked but I totally disagree! This album is full of different speeds , depths , instruments , riffs , and more . This album has more pop then I was hoping but it is still Insanely deep and people aren’t listening to the lyrics to realize this . This album will grow on you the more you listen to it and has songs to suit anyone . His voice is unbelievably great and I feel gets showcased this entire album. Faith was my personal favorite very deep and dark song that hit in ways a song hasn’t before it has mood atmosphere and has a crazy beat . Buy this album .
The people who dislike this album are either not a fan of Abel or you just hating because this man has changed and is STILL CHANGING the entire landscape of R&B , the production the vocals and overall creativity of this album is amazing , I’ve been listening to Abel since 2011 and he continues to blow me away, other R&B artists are not doing this !!
The Blinding lights song sounds like a knock off cheesy 80’s synth pop 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’
How in the acatual [email protected]&$ are you people hating on this album?! It’s easily his best work since trilogy. It’s genre-less and with great play through ability. Some of the songs are a straight up ode to the 80’s, heavily Influenced. Abel really out did himself on this one. Some of y’all are definitely not day 1 fans to be hating on this masterpiece.
