I think that's what the cool kids say. On Spotify and the like now. Any good?

Genuinely thought you meant that the release was being cancelled.

Oops, I think he forgot to name some of the files. And he didn't upload the cover art. I get it though, he's a busy man. Certainly wouldn't be an artistic choice, that would just be wanky.

Quite a lot of artists have done similar, like Kendrick, loads of electronic music. I think initially it was released as a single file so the timings for track listings made more sense. Big shrug* either way really

I prefer the new The Weeknd album, and I say that as someone who was massively underwhelmed by The Weeknd's previous two albums.

I love this so far. I'm about halfway through. 'Algorhythm' and '19.10' are bangers.

The correct terminology is actually "slaps", "kersplodez" or "bumfucks".

It was dropped. It had already been dropsed

Blimey...sure is. Although bits of it weirdly keep reminding me of Kanye's Heard 'Em Say.

It's quite 'Prince', isn't it?

Fuck me, this album is boring. Huge disappointment. The tracks just go nowhere.

It's fine, it's got that usual thing all his music has where it's all perfectly fine but the way writeups absolutely fall over themselves to present it as the most amazing thing ever puts me off. Same as Beyonce, I can never tell if any of it is okay or actually pretty good because of the chorus of voices insisting it's amazing and, like, totally capturing the cultural zeitgeist in only the way that this artist could.

Felt like 19.10 was the only good track because of the slightly Princey, ‘Men in Black’ vibe to it. A lot of tracks are like an urban version of that Roger and Brian Eno record that’s also been out in the past week or so with not an awful lot going on. This album presents has a 6.4% mortality rate across people of all ages because of the critical threat of boredom it poses.

It’s a twatting about on his latop trying all the effects album. Definitely lacking in tunes.

Yeah upon second listen only '19.10' and '24.19' stand up. 'Algorhythm' is good in places but it doesn't stay in the groove long enough in favour of weird effects and strange segues.

The Weeknd's album is an absolute banger, though. Thank you to whomever recommended it upthread.

Gambino's album has actually grown on me over the week, but yeah, The Weeknd's album is another level.

'In Your Eyes' is the banger of the summer.
