Where to download?
you cant read my post right above you?


Anyway I actually kinda like this album.  Not as big of a fan of his new sound vs the older stuff but i still think this might be a pretty decent album.  Listening to a bunch of daft punk prior to this album i think made me like it extra

Niggas better get on that torrent wave, leaked albums are there every time. 

But honestly.. His old shit > Kiss Land. Sure there's a couple songs that I like, but shit nigga. He changed up.

I look at this at the same way as I do MBDTF from Kanye. House of Balloons being his College Dropout. Of course dude is going to progress and make different sounding music. 

House of Balloons was crazy raw which made it so dope, but I think it's ill how he is refining himself with each and every release. Kiss Land seems like the pinnacle of all that work thus far and the shit is ill.

Adaptation into Love In The Sky bruh blinkyeyessmokeyface

I'm so used to his HOB style, this seems so unfamiliar to me. The upbeat style on some of these songs really got me thrown off (aside from Loft Music on HOB). Only one I really enjoyed was Adaptation and the second half of kissland tbh. Going to give it a few more plays and see if that changes.

Beyond the same sounding-ish track name, is Adaptation supposed to be like a part 2 or sequerl of Initiation?

I wasn't a fan of a couple of the singles he released but after listening to the album for a few days now I'm loving the overall dark feel of it. 

People forget when they played house of balloons for the first couple times it didn't make them go crazy. This album is amazing but it's complex and takes time to settle in. Can't wait to see him on the 16th.

^That's exactly how I felt. I didn't feel the pain or sorrow from his music anymore, but I guess that's a good thing. He's in a much better position now and we're getting the same style, but with a different perspective. He's made big moves in little time. That has to change your views. The way I see it, this is a breathe of fresh air just like his old stuff back then. He has dope melodies and wavy production, so I can't complain. 

the ending in Love in the Sky smokeyface I can't get enough of that synth, my god.

I had taken the words out of his mouth and filled it with fart.

I rate him as a musician farrrr more than Drake. Wish he didn't affiliate with him as much musically.

Live for isn't a bad track, just the hook is kinda wack and I wish Drake wasn't on the song. The first verse by The Weeknd is pretty good.

Just saw him live this past weekend. He pretty much only performed songs off Kiss Land and a few HOB songs.

Professional, Wanderlust, Pretty, Odd Look, Belong To The World are my favorites
