Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 442/500!
Following Trilogy, a compilation album of remixed and remastered versions of his 2011 mixtapes House of Balloons, Thursday and Echoes of Silence, and the 2013 album Kiss Land, Abel Tesfaye releases Beauty Behind the Madness. The breakthrough album features the hit single "I Can't Feel My Face."
Canada's Abel Tesfaye redefined what it means to be an R&B auteur with his breakthrough second LP. After a series of mysterious mixtape releases built around weeded-out goth moodiness...he went for full-on Top 40 grandeur this time, without diluting any of his eerie allure. The sumptuous Max Martin joint "Can't Feel My Face" got America dancing to a sex-as-cocaine metaphor, thanks to a joyful hook Michael Jackson could have moonwalked to; "In the Night" amped up the violent undercurrents of MJ circa Bad while still feeling like a party; and bleary ballads like "Earned It" and "The Hills" spun gossamer sensuality into unlikely hit singles. Who else but the Weeknd could make a line like "Only my mother could love me for me" work as pillow talk? It's just that kind of raw honesty that makes him such a revolutionary player.
