I liked the album, probably more the first few times i listened to it than now though. The main thing that stood out to me were the beats, the samples used work well. I don't think his voice is particularly great, it's decent though.
Ima check out them remixes. Heres The Weeknd doing Drakes 'Trust Issues'. Its pretty crazy: http://hulkshare.com/lbzckax6blb9

Yeah Drakes album probably had a knock on effect in terms of production style, vocal effects etc but I think this guys songwriting style is a lot different.

For me Drakes album was one of the best of 2010, you mean hes a cornball in terms of talking about his feelings etc? I can see that but I think it takes a lot more guts to bare your soul on record like that than just talk about your rap skills or drugs etc.

Yeah I agree with you about The Weeknd using samples, you don't hear a lot of that in R&B, certainly not the same style. Also the lyrics are a lot more vivid and realistic than average R&B which is lovey dovey crap. Not that I don't like that too sometimes, but its refreshing to hear a dude like this.

For me the albums an instant classic, and bearing in mind dudes only 21 I think if you only thought this album was decent this guys gonna be one to watch.
