In terms of quality and quantity, The Weeknd have been ridiculously generous in their output this year. Having previously released two excellent free mixtapes, they’re ending the year on a high note with the release of Echoes of Silence. It’s not as consistently strong as House of Balloons, but it certainly offers a welcome and substantial escape from all of the Christmas carols bombarding us over the holidays. Oh, and it includes a pretty awesome take on Michael Jackson’s “Dirty Diana.”
