As the audience cheers, Abel Tesfaye walks backstage, his artificial smile intact, until he reaches a hallway where it fades into a frigid stare. The character he plays is an exaggerated riff on the solipsistic-hedonist persona Tesfaye has been tunneling into since his mixtape trilogy , where he first introduced listeners to his brand of brooding nihilism. In , he continues to revel in high drama; After Hour s dives deep into the textures of pleasure, despair, and how we consciously distance ourselves from our interiors. After years of attempting to bring the spectral tones of his early mixtapes to a mainstream pop format, Tesfaye finally unites his two worlds. His major-label debut Kiss Land was a languid disappointment, and Beauty Behind the Madness failed to live up to the promise made by the Trilogy tapes. Even if he is singing about the same things—bacchanalian excess, loneliness as rapture, using women to rehabilitate his poor little life—the fresh vocals and production flourishes do the trick.

W hen Abel Tesfaye first emerged nine years ago as the Weeknd he arrived with such an immaculately constructed sound and aesthetic that it swiftly became a creative prison. A rethink was in order. The agile After Hours might be his best attempt yet at fusing the two. Lyrically, he ventures into new territory too, albeit briefly. The album opens with a suite of songs that show a scintilla of remorse for failed relationships that never seemed to make it beyond the bedroom. The featherlight, Limahl-esque Save Your Tears, meanwhile, offers up a hint of self-reflection.
Be a good influence. She is probably thinking she can convert you if she is with you long enough and is a good enough example. When my husband and I were sealed, I finally understood why my Dad had been stressing this to me my entire life. I married a non-member over 20 years ago. I pray almost daily that his schedule will get better once we both started working, but I'm constantly concerned that I'll be doing most things alone too.
