Critic Reviews

  • Abel Tesfaye confirms his status as an all-time great with an album of icy 80s-inflected splendour.

    The Guardian
  • Billed as the successor to 2019’s acclaimed After Hours, Abel Tesfaye’s fifth studio LP transcends dynamic pop grandeur and flaunts accountability in the face of death.

  • Dawn FM is his most ambitious album to date, and one that shows welcome signs of emotional and psychological growth.

    The Telegraph
  • Less brooding and decadent than usual, his latest is a refreshingly light and accessible listen.

  • What better balm for the start of another troubled year than our biggest star making music as good as this?

    The Line of Best Fit
  • Despite some pacing issues, ‘Dawn FM’ is a worthy follow-up to ‘After Hours’. Whilst it lacks the character and vivacity of its predecessor, ‘Dawn FM’ develops the latest reinvention of the Weeknd with its dramatic instrumentation and refreshed view of the world.

  • On Dawn FM, The Weeknd cements himself as a master of the cinematic, and one of the most innovative artists in pop right now. It’s stratospheric in size and draped in shadows and mystique—The Weeknd masterfully crafts an album that is simultaneously euphoric and unnerving.

  • Abel Tesfaye marks a period of reflection with perhaps his most mature, emotionally robust collection yet. Oh, and Jim Carrey narrates it, of course.

    NME
  • Dawn FM is a woozy, psychedelic deep dive inside the artist’s famously twisted psyche.

    Rating: 80/100
    Slant Magazine
  • Escapism of the best kind from a pop mastermind.

  • By this point, we know The Weeknd’s not an “album artist”, and Dawn FM has its highlights. As ever, just add the best bits to your streaming “Weeknd playlist” and there’s an apocalyptic soundtrack you can’t deny.
