EDITORS’ NOTES

Abel Tesfaye has transitioned expertly from shadowy R&B trailblazer to full-blown pop presence. In the wake of his deeply influential trilogy of 2011 full-lengths and his addictive contributions to 2014’s Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack—“Earned it” and “Where You Belong”—the Weeknd mastermind unveils another gorgeous collection of electrifying melody and brooding atmosphere. Beauty Behind the Madness features the Michael Jackson-like vocal moves of ”Can't Feel My Face”, the hypnotic thump of “The Hills” and the psychedelic serenading of “Often”.
