CRITIC REVIEWS

90
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.

60
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

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.

Even I, one who was never a fan of The Weeknd, likes Echoes of Silence

It’s honestly the worst part of the trilogy of mixtapes, I still really liked it but it’s definitely the worst of them.
