The Weeknd is back with a new album called Dawn FM. He has always been incredibly talented, but his mainstream music has been more formulaic than artistic. The cultish messages that simulate a radio station are hauntingly infectious. This album was designed solely for the radio, but there are really good radio songs that would outshine this music. That's saying something because The Weeknd is an incredibly strong vocalist and a melodic genius. This music is decent, but like the album cover; maybe avoiding jealousy is the subliminal strategy.
