The Weeknd - Starboy

This album is what happens when an amazing singer who has one of the most passionate and heaviest r&b discographies out right now tries to create a more radio-friendly sound and persona. Nearly every song here is filler with no personality. The production is fine, but Abel's lyrics are so pointless and delivered in such an emotionally flat way (the exception is the song Die For You, which is my favorite song on the album) it's infuriating. Future's feature is okay, Kendrick's is excellent, and the songs with Daft Punk are more memorable than the others. I really enjoyed BBTM and the Trilogy because they were heavy r&b with more soul coming from Abel than other mainstream artists making similar music. I know I won't identify with the majority of people who will love this album, but it just really let me down.
