The Weeknd is back, more atmospheric, complex, emotional and entrancing than ever. His music here has hit new heights in terms of his ghosty mind bending quality, it swirls around your mind as his vocals take you deep into the story. Incredibly unique, well produced, performed and presented. Every song is A*, I was hooked from the first 10 seconds. This is one of the finest albums I've ever had the pleasure of listening to, all hail The Weeknd.

Loved The Trilogy and this is more of the same and even better. A strong contender for album of the year in my eyes

I didn't think the Weeknd would ever manage to equal the genius of the track Montreal. But he has, 10 times on Kiss Land. And at times, exceeded it. What's it like? Lush. Electronic. Melodic. Michael Jackson without the irritating yelps and weird personal issues. The smoothiest, sexiest album of 2013...

I loved it from the moment when, listening to the first track, Professional,for the first time, about 1:30 mins in, during an ooh-ooh bit, it suddenly soars, and the song changes into something quite different. Similar moment in Adaptation when he sings 'pure, so pure'. My heart just soared with it. Odd backing to this one too, almost like something by Sting!?! Love in the Sky is particularly like Jackson, but better, and I defy anyone to keep their body still during Wanderlust. Kiss Land is bizarre, erotic, mesmeric, with intangible lyrics. And then there's Pretty, which is just so... pretty! 'He will never make you feel so pretty; he will never make you feel this beautiful.' My cd ends with the gorgeous Tears in the Rain 'she just let it slip away, slip away...' And so the album fades.

I love this album. If you get it now, you'll get a couple of extra tracks. Buy it and fall in love.

Added 3 weeks week later.
Course, the reason the backing on Adaptation sounds like the Police, is that it is the Police! Bring on the Night. Doh.

Well he certainly has maintained the high quality lyrics and beat we saw in the Trilogy. I was blown away by Kissland, as I was by the Trilogy. It is not often I feel compelled to leave a review, however, this album required my immediate action. I HIGHLY recommend you purchase this album if you enjoyed his previous release.

All in all, this man can saaang. His beats are uplifting and synchronise well with his unique vocal range. A masterpiece.

The Weeknd never fails to blow my mind with his music. I'm loving his progression from House of Balloons etc. Even better is that this wonderful album is available on vinyl - WOW. The packaging is interesting, so detailed and a lot of thought has been put into it. I love Abel, and I love this vinyl: it's definitely worth the money.

Perfect album, it came on time and works perfectly.
One thing I will say though, is that because it gets delivered by post, and because it's paperback type... it gets crushed in the packaging
So, I'd recommend to just go to HMV and buy it :/

Every song is addictive on this album. I was truly hypnotized by the sound of his voice and the structure of his music. Simply amazing and a must buy!
