The Weeknd is an unconventional RnB singer (similar to artists like Drake and Frank Ocean) who came to the music scene around the start of 2011 by offering a free mixtape to the public, titled 'House of Balloons'. It was a rather unknown release at the time, but word of mouth spread about this eerie but hauntingly beautiful body of work. As a free album the production values were just as good, if not better, than a commercial album, and its themes of betrayal, sex and drugs over hynoptic, indie-sampled beats combined with arguably his strong asset - his clear, resonating falsetto - made for one of the best rnb releases in recent memory. This is an artist that has set out his own genre and redefined it to create his own beautiful, haunting sound. Two more mixtapes later, and an increase in hype and popularity, we now have this new reissue containing remastered versions of all the songs in his mixtapes, as well as three brand new songs. In general the remastered versions are very nice indeed, and if you've already treated yourself to his free mixtapes, you'll find that the songs sound fuller, without ruining the feel of the original versions.

Since 'Trilogy' is essentially three albums with three new tracks, I will review them individually and then as a complete body of music. This is so that those who have never heard of the Weeknd's music can get an understanding of his music. However, I highly recommend you listen to this album from start to finish; it's sheer brilliance and creativity is something that new listeners will be taken aback to. It's unlike anything you've heard.

House of Balloons - the first mixtape and arguably the best in terms of scope, roundness and originality.

Excellent trilogy, whilst I like quite a wide range of music, the type that hits me the most is big bass lines, atmospheric soundtracks and beautiful vocals, these three CDs have all of that in bucket loads. I've just gone through rating each song on my computer, mostly 5s and the odd 4 out of 5, nothing drops below that.

The only gripe could be that it's all a bit samey, however, I like this kind of music. I'll be listening to it every day now for a while...

I can't say enough good things about The Weeknd. This is One (well 3) of the best albums I own. His voice is amazing and his songs are just beautiful. Songs like 'Rolling Stone' and 'Twenty Eight' are just amazing. And there is even a MJ cover on it!

5.0 out of 5 stars fabulous 28 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Properly good, and nicely all-over-the-place.

Suppose the strongest 'hit' songs could be put on one CD. But thats not the point of this collection, more of a personal journey than a wham bang thank you mam.

Amazing voice with songs full of passion, emotion, talent and creativity.

A nice treat was hearing Siouxsie And The Banshees 'happy house' and MJ 'dirty diana' remixed.

My personal faves:
CD 1 - T5 wicked games, T6 The party, T7 Coming down
CD2 - T4 The zone featuring drake
CD3 - last 3 tracks are amazing, for me the best part of the whole trilogy. T8 next, T9 echos of silence, T10 till dawn

Only negative is some songs have gimmicky tricks which detract from the rawnesss and purity, for example the nig*a word feels shoehorned in for no real reason, and 'in fashion' sound/vocal effects which does kinda kill the some songs.
