Today is 21st December 2015, 4 years after Echoes of Silence dropped, the third and final chapter of The Weeknd's mixtape trilogy.



Probably the most underrated mixtape of the 3, lyrically it has some of Abel's strongest work. Sonically, the overall sombre tone and depressing mood of the tape makes it perfect music for winter.

It starts off with one of the best covers of all time:

and these 8 gems follow after it:









Bump EOS hard today fam and have a blessed day

It took me 4-5 attempts if I remember correctly to download it.
And then while I was waiting for my friends to meet me I listened to it for the first time. The weather was freezing cold but it didn't matter :rejoice:
The time of the release is not coincidental. The perfect winter tape

I skip D.D. Cause it's not a good cover but the rest of the tape has an amazing cohesive feel/vibe. :rejoice:
Illangelo doesn't get enough credit for giving Abel this sound.

$30,000 :aliveparrot: $30,000

I don't like outside the instrumental just bugs me, and the fall is good but could have been done a lot better
