7digital What we said: During his time as a DIY artist, Abel Tesfaye could scarcely put a foot wrong. Maintaining that critical momentum long-term has proved a trickier task, thanks to the wildly mixed reviews his major label debut received. Kiss Land’s detractors won’t be assuaged by the lyrical content on this follow-up - which remains rooted in nihilistic, narcotics-fuelled sex - but they might well be by its musical pedigree. Boasting a duet with Lana Del Rey, a Kanye West production credit, and some impressively Michael Jackson-esque vocal turns from Tesfaye himself, Beauty Behind The Madness has the words “crossover success” ingrained in its grooves. ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ deserves special commendation too, for joining ‘There She Goes’ and ‘Perfect Day’ in the pantheon of all-time great pop songs ostensibly about love, but probably about drugs.
