    I searched for a thread but couldnt find one. I'm pretty sure, some of you heard about this mixtape but for those who havent.
    The Weeknd is a singer from Toronto who uploaded three of his songs late last year on Youtube which Drake posted on his twitter and that built more hype. In March, he released this mixtape which has received great reviews from Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and many more with two more mixtapes/EPs following this summer (Thursday) and one for the fall (Echoes of Silence).
    He will also appear on Drake's "Take Care".

    EDIT: This thread is about both mixtapes now.

    One of the best mixtapes of 2011. This is good enough to be sold as a album.

                            Montreal and Outside are brilliant!

                            Listening now to XO/The Host! It also sounds really good!

                                I didn't like DD that much.

                                But I discovered the firs mixtape Balloons last month, it is pure brilliance!

                                    I view MJ's songs as sacred, but wow...The Weeknd killed Dirty Diana. absolutely amazing.

                                        The new mixtape is good but his stuff and vocals are getting very samey.

                                            House of Balloons Wmosi, it's amaazing!! He's R&B/electronic, his voice is amazing, his music has just got great atmosphere.

                                            Here's a pretty good track to check out to see if you like him: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sX9DgavXiN4

                                                Both NME and Q have named The Weeknd an act of the year.
                                                As well as Pitchfork.


                                                Haven't been amazed at what i've heard.

                                                  I'm loving D.D. atm. Can't say Echoes of Silence is as great as House of Balloons but I can't say that about most albums. Still think The Weeknd is prolly the best new act I've heard this year and I hope he releases an album that matches his talent.
