The Weeknd: Trilogy

Mike Diver,, November 2012

"YOU DON'T KNOW, what's in store." The opening line on this major-label compilation from Abel Tesfaye, aka The Weeknd, isn't entirely accurate. Trilogy does feature previously unreleased material; but 27 of its 30 tracks are from free mixtapes the Canadian put out in 2011. What's in store? Mostly what we've heard before.
