The Weeknd - Starboy

If Beauty Behind The Madness was a slight dip in quality, Starboy is a tremendous one. Abel loses the aesthetic that made his music interesting and memorable and replaces it with more generic and pop styles of music. The album is also loaded with filler with many songs being instantly forgotten after they finish. The features are a mix with Kendrick Lamar providing a great verse on Sidewalks and Daft Punk lending their great production to the two best songs on the album. On the other hand Future and Lana Del Rey add absolutely nothing to the songs they are on. They don't make the songs worse but they just don't help it either. Seeing as Abel has made much better music after this album with his My Dear Melancholy project, it seems this could have been a one album dip. Hopefully Chapter 6 brings back the aesthetic and quality that Abel has proven he can do in his previous projects.

BEST TRACKS: Starboy, Party Monster, Reminder, Sidewalks, I Feel It Coming
