Ah yes! After a few months of anxious waiting, we’ve received the follow up to The Weeknd’s House of Balloons in the form of Thursday, a 9 song EP that picks up where his debut left off. On my first few listens, no, it’s not quite as impressive as Balloons, but that isn’t much of a slight.
House of Balloons is an automatic classic in my book and Thursday has a few moments that live up to that level. Even the parts that don’t are still dope, but bottom line, either you like The Weeknd‘s sound or you don’t. There is no middle ground and this tape won’t change your mind one way or the other.
Personally, I love it.
Sexy/Emo/Baller/Depressed music all in one, perfect for the loft and for the upcoming cold season. I don’t think you’ll find a better 2am soundtrack this winter, but ladies, if you do, please let me know…
