CRITIC REVIEWS

No Ripcord

The final mixtape in his trilogy is a perfect ending. He’s more confident, he’s embraced it, but he’s still weak.

85
Beats Per Minute

Echoes of Silence is arguably The Weeknd’s most fully formed album-oriented statement thus far.

81
Pitchfork

It's a strong finish to Tesfaye's first trilogy, providing just enough closure to satisfy, and just enough mystery left to entice us back for the next round.

80
Consequence of Sound

It’s The Weeknd’s most concentrated effort to date and one that sets the bar inordinately high for that imminent debut album.

80
Spin

Echoes is a profound listen that, despite its veneer of cynicism, oozes pain and crisis.

The Needle Drop
The latest installment of tracks from Ontario's the Weeknd builds on the best characteristics the previous releases from this experimental R&B project had to offer.

PopMatters

While Echoes of Silence shows flashes of excellence, Tesfaye is caught like the Greek god Janus, looking backward and forward at the same time

After Abel Tesfaye's IMPECCABLE cover of Michael Jackson's "Dirty Diana" (GODDAMN!), he delivers what is his darkest, most cohesive work to date! "Echoes of Silence" is "House of Balloons" with the edginess turned up to 11. It's filled with masterfully grim textures and lyrics that indicate a deeper dive into his downward spiral along with the atmosphere and amazing vocals that made the formula so fresh!

One of Abel's best projects to date. While it's not as memorable as House of Balloons, it still boasts a great number of tracks like his phenomenal cover of Michael Jackson's Dirty Diana as well as XO / The Host and The Fall.

BEST TRACKS: D. D., XO / The Host, The Fall

WORST TRACKS: None

Summing up his perception of modern r'n'b with his third mixtape, he presents not his best but his most cohesive work, absolutely focused on his dramatic performance.
