Does anybody else think KISS LAND is the Weeknds's best body of work?
Why/ why not? and what are your favorite Weeknd songs?
Idk, I think this is tough. I’d say it’s probably his most cohesive; from Thursday, I feel as though his works have become more fluid track-by-track (which is, why I give House of Balloons its dues, it isn’t my favorite of the Trilogy). Looking bout now, although I dig pretty much every song on it, I think to pick, he fell short on “Live For” and maybe “The Town”. “Wanderlust” should probably have been a bonus track as the vibe didn’t fit the regular album (although topic wise it flows nicely from “Belong To The World”.)
Answer to your question: arguable/may fluctuate but for now I’ll say yes.
Birds 1 & 2 (fav from Thursday although I love that whole tape)
Adaptation, Love in the Sky
Tears in the Rain
Next, Echoes of Silence (song)
I wont lie I like Every single song on Kiss Land. a lot
I did too when I first heard it, and I still like every song, but I think some songs were worse for the album than better in terms of implementation and placement (just some fine things). I think some tweaking is needed but I still hold it near my AOTY standings (lol).
Kiss land had to grow on me. At first I only really liked “live for” and “professional” cause I couldnt get used to the higher singing pitch. now I think they’re all dope as hell and I cant even go back to the older mixtapes. oh and I don’t think enough people even heard it or gave it a chance for it to be album of the year smh. I think its cause he didnt promote it too much. I feel like he only made it for the core fans
Talk to me baby,
Tell me what you feeling…
HOB and EOS are both better. It goes:
Production wasn’t as godly as previous records, and there are times that I get bored half way through 7 minute songs. It’s still a 7.5/10 for me, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Top 10 Weeknd Songs
1.House of Balloons/Glass tables
5.High For This
6.Same Old Song
9. The Zone
Yeah I don’t think any Kiss Land songs make the cut, but in my top 20 I’m sure there’d be some. The Town, Adaption, Belong to the World are my favorites.
belong to the world, wanderlust, and odd look are a different more upbeat style that I think is dope. love in the sky was good as hell too.. I think you should have a more open mind. I’ll admit that kiss land the song was too long though
Well, I’m aware that my opinion is a bit biased — you know, the only reason 99% of women don’t like the weeknd, is because they haven’t heard -but I’ll give it anyway.
I second @Andre96 on the thought that it is maybe his more cohesive work; it flows amazingly from one song to another. I remember the first time I heard it I couldn’t believe it was already track 6 when I decided to check it.
I’m not sure I’d say is his best work — I don’t know, I really needed some time to fully appreciate Thursday, so maybe I still need some perspective on Kiss Land.
And just to leave a thought, maybe I won’t be sincerely able to fully compare Kiss Land and the mixtapes that later composed The Trilogy… But this is just me though, not something I can really explain why.
To finish, favorites, not in particular order because I suck at choosing number one:
The Birds Part 2
House Of Balloons/Glass Table Girls
Tears In The Rain
Echoes Of Silence — the song
I forgot about enemy! that songs dope
