This shit right here! The Weeknd is my favorite new discovery of 2011.
Yeah. I dig. And I don't necessarily agree with Reaper's take that it's a rehash of The Dream. I do think that HoB was much more interesting and fresh than anything else he's put out since, though.

Edit: I should add that I'm completely prejudiced right now because I'm fascinated by the current conflux of indie and hiphop/R&B, which the Weeknd represents very well. The Dream seems to draw much more on traditional R&B (and that's not a bad thing at all). He's all around better than Abel from a larger perspective, but I'm pretty caught up in the movement that Abel is a part of at the moment.
