Here it is, the long-awaited final tape in the series of what was an amazing year for The Weeknd. According to our calculations, he had the second best album of the year with House Of Balloons, and “The Morning” had Abel Tesfaye sitting at number one with our favorite song of the year. Not bad.

We’ll see if he can keep the streak of twisted, tortured, and beautiful R&B going with Echoes Of Silence. Even if this shit sucks (not likely), The Weeknd’s 2011 was an epic one. Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section once you get a chance to listen.

UPDATE: Confirmed: This shit does not suck. Really great stuff here.
