After Hours Tracklist:
I don’t normally go for The Weekend but I’m obsessed with this album! I love the arrangements and how the songs blend together with pop and synth ballads. Although I find his voice a tad ‘whiny’ I got used to it the more I listened to the record and I think it works with his sound.
This song is so good and catchy. I listen to it/hear it and it automatically makes me want to dance and smile. I could see this on the next Just Dance. So if you want a song that’ll make you feel better during rough times, choose this song. It’s such a banger and will make you sing it for a few days.
The people saying talentless and that no effort was put into this album have never once tried to make anything music related. This album’s production is insanely crisp, airy, and beautiful. The detail put into each instrumental, the lyrics, and vocal performances are insane. Some people try too hard to shade and sound ignorant
I think Blinding Lights is great, it's a catchy pop song with a solid hook. The only problem I have is that the melody is a copy of Rod Stewart's Young Turks. Don't think so? Go listen to the sample of Young Turks and then come back and listen to Blinding Lights. If The Weeknd gave Rod Stewart credit, then cool, but if not, it's just more of the industry recylcing sounds that were great the first time around. Just as with the movie industry, the music industry has ran the well dry of originality. My rating is for Blinding Lights as a single, not the entire album.
I'm new to The Weeknd. All you one and two star raters, get over yourselves. I get how people who were with a band from the early days feel like they know them and have a connection and a desire and excitement when new material comes out and then it's, like, what the f*&k. (Believe me, I experienced the same thing when Elton John release "Blue Moves." I was raised on Honky Chateau and Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and then what the hell.. "Blue Moves"). But I got over it. The Weeknd just exploded into everyone's consiousness with a great single, and I am enjoying learning about a new group. I'm excited to buy their currect album and then go check out their earlier stuff.
I’ve always loved The Weeknd and most of his music. This album is truly his best yet because it pushes and combines all of his previous albums into a cohesiveness collection in regards to the instrumentals, his voice, and the lyrics. 🎶 His growth has been such a gift for us to be able to witness and experience. I can’t wait for the next release. 🎼 My favorite songs from After Hours, in no particular order, are: Alone Again Hardest to Love Heartless Faith Blinding Lights In Your Eyes Save Your Tears After Hours However the entire collection of songs on After Hours is brilliant. Highly recommended. 🎵
To all of the people that were complaining about him going back to his older music, here you go. Now I don’t understand why y’all are complaining that it’s trash, this is what y’all were wanting
This album is amazing, I’m in love with almost every song in here and that is rare for an album that they always come out with and there’s few good songs in there. Alone again, Too Late, and Save Your Tears are my top favs. And of course after hours and blinding lights are my favorites. I just want to but mercy but canttttt. Love the vibe of this album too❤️, we love you Abel.
This album was amazing and a masterpiece. Idk why there’s so much hate reviews on this🙄. The songs DO NOT SOUND THE SAME. Hardest to Love, Faith, Save Your Tears, and In Your Eyes, are clearly different genres and mixes. Abel took his time to create this beautiful album. It shifts from upbeat 80’s type to melancholic, mellow and complex sounds. The people complaining in the reviews certainly should be ignored. To conclude, the whole album feels like an emotional roller coaster ride. It’s really just an enjoyable vibe. Sad, Happy, or Hyped, this album could and will be for you.
Good music is music that elicits feelings and this album delivers!! You can literally feel these songs. Such a vulnerable, emotional, sensual, sexy mix of lyrics and beats. Can't get enough!
Canadian Singer-Songwriter and R&B Behemoth Abel Tesfaye AKA The Weeknd has seemingly perfected his craft. It seems like Tesfaye has memorized the blueprint for the machine that churns out incredible music. The songbird of this generation, Tesfaye delivers one of his finest pieces of musical work til date. Would highly recommend.
One of the best albums of 2020. The way Abel was ABLE to paint a story and pour his heart out with his lyrics and voice had me hooked on every song! I’ve been listening nonstop since it dropped, thanks a lot <3
This album is something more like a sequel to KissLand, sound wise, not story wise. This is an album that definitely needs more than one listen. This needs to marinate into the head that is listening. Very well produced album.
This album was not meant to be like his others. He is reinventing himself instead of doing the same thing for a whole decade. This album is different and I love it❤️🐐 The Weeknd never disappoints
