Ok, some of those things I still talk about, but not in the same ways. My experiences since TD have allowed me to talk about these issues in a more mature and sophisticated manner--which brings me back to Kiss Land (no pun intended).

Critics have called Kiss Land "lateral progression," which, to be honest, is kind of putting it lightly. Now, again, I like The Weeknd. I think the guy's voice is whiny as hell but haunting. I think lyrically and musically, he has that kind of fucked up/demented in a "pseudo-genius with sexual issues" thing going for him. I think he's like a drugged-out Michael Jackson with abandonment issues and Canadian fuckery. That's if, you know, MJ was 20-something in 2013 hip-hop-tinged pseudo-alt-R&B where it's cool to sing about drugging your problems away because we're all accepting of everything--or something.
Will Weeknd's second full LP prove growth? Hopefully or else Kiss Land will probably be going under pretty soon. And at this point? I'm not really sure if that's a bad thing.
