[QUICKIE/REMIX] The Weeknd – ECHOES OF SILENCE (w/ “Montreal” & “Echoes of Silence” [The Lost Boys Remix])

happiness exists when you don’t know a thing, so i hope you don’t think this song is about you

♫ The Weeknd – Montreal

MJ lives & is even more fucked up than we thought. Maybe Weeknd’s best but LP 3 didn’t grab me like the first. I’m really curious for next.

[Quickies are mini-reviews that can fit into a 140 character tweet. They are of albums that people already know of but perhaps are curious about our take on it. What did you think of the disc?]

♫ The Weeknd – Echoes of Silence (The Lost Boys Remix)

I wasn’t going to post about the newest Weeknd album at all since the thing didn’t resonate with me much for whatever reason but then this Lost Boys remix made for a easy excuse to throw my two cents in the ring. But really, ignore my two cents. Focus on this remix. It adds just the right amount of spark to illuminate the dark hollows of the Weekend’s original.

    Honestly, I’m a big big fan of The Weeknd. Of course, the first EP House Of Balloons was pure magic upon first listen. When Thursday came out, I listened to it… but was underwhelmed. It was boring. But only at first. About a month or two later I had some lyrics in my head. It took me a second to realize that I was remembering a song from The Weeknd’s second album. So I gave it another go. And in my opinion, it’s genius (not as genius as the first, but still commendable). When I heard the third EP, Echoes of Silence… again I wasn’t impressed. But I figured, hey.. the same thing happened at first with the Thursday EP. So I gave Echoes another listen.. and then a second listen.. and then a third. It’s still not my favorite of the 3 EPs.. or my second favorite.. but slowly but surely these songs are catching on. You were smart to highlight Montreal because it’s probably one of the more “radio friendly” tracks on the EP.. but with a few listens, you’ll see that other songs are equally as good, if not better.
