After Hours.


The Weeknd has released his first album since Starboy, which was released in 2016. This release... After Hours has no features and quite frankly... doesn't need them.


Number of tracks on the album:


14.

Deluxe version, 19.


Likeliness of skipping tracks:


3.5/5


Good background music:


Yes.

The synths blend nicely with the vocals of The Weeknd, making this a very easily album to have playing in the background.


Explicit:


Yes. Even in the "cleaner" tracks, if you're a listener who pays attention to content, you will definitely notice the strong references to sex, drugs, death, and intense devastation... demonstrated with the smoothest approach possible.


Mood:


Melancholic.

If you're already in your feelings and need a catalyst to delve you deeper, this is the album for you.


Creativity:


4/5


Nothing short of creative.

Cover art & short film released add to the creativity of this project.

Multiple cross-references, nostalgic sounds and a heavy development on already familiar "Weeknd" vocals.

Clean and explorative production.
