It is not very often that you will see a post about an R&B artist. I mean - top 40 R&B is some of the biggest piece of shit out there! Auto tune sucks - I hate everything where auto tune is over used, and that seems to be the big trend. What that means is that anyone can be an R&B singer as long as you look good and can preform on stage. Bullshit!!
Today, however, I decided to download the new album from The Weeknd called "Echoes of Silence" - and I am super impressed. The Weeknd's real name is Abel Tesfaye and he hails from Toronto, Canada and he is getting all sorts of press with this album. It is a different kind of R&B album, it's dark and slow...almost erie and gothic. I feel like I am listening to dark industrial music with funky beats! The deeper I get into the album the more I like it! Well done sir!!
