Whimsical warmth and playful electronix are fetching enough, tones both sharp-n-crisp and nighttime dreamy please the ear, expected jazzy verve is there but woulda liked to see it more amply utilized. For my money, the peak of this 23-track 51-minute yuck-it-up jumble comes at what may as well be the beginning, the 2 tunes/4 minutes of "Captain Stupido" and "Uh Uh". The latter a simple speedy jazz drill that shoulda lent some of its liveliness elsewhere and the former gagger-goofy as the best of em with its flatulence and meat beatin' beard combin' Beach Boys scurry. Following that, it seems like video game/internet/cat culture is catered to more than the songwriting; too many half-songs and less-than-half-songs with a bulk not making a dent. Monotonous vox, smooth-gone-shallow, garden-variety guest spots -- except for Wiz Khalifa, tho not in a good way -- his gnarly weed and red cups take the gagger-goofy crown.

Despite being on his third LP, it still feels like Thundercat hasn't quite found his footing. His instrumental work has never been better, but it comes at the price of a weak concept and a clumsy narrative. It's enjoyable fun, though it's obvious that Thundercat is capable of so much more.

This is annoying because I'm undoubtedly a huge fan. Thundercat's lyrical humour, technical
bass-playing, captivating falsetto are significant attributes to make you excited for new material
and, indeed, they all feature prominently. Unfortunately, the songwriting is either too formulaic or
just not up to scratch. So many short tracks leave your mind as quickly as they enter. Still,
"actual" songs 'Drunk'*, 'Friend Zone', 'Them Changes' and 'The Turn Down' are strong, while 'Uh
Uh' is a maximal showcase of Thundercat's impressive ability on the bass. Nevertheless,
Thundercat's obvious technical talents are crying out for him to tap into a progressive side in his
songwriting that incorporates the inspiration he pulls out in live shows.

Dude got Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald to sit in on one of the smoothest tracks in modern memory. Plus he's got the finger plucking skills of Jaco. The world needs more Thundercat to feed ya brains.

I agree with who is saying that is his best work and at the same time i think its songwriting could be better, and you can feel that his music is demanding him to go to a more sophisticated direction. Still is a chill album to listen to. I just hope this neo soul/future funk trend dies fast, or goes in a more progressive direction. But we all know it will not happen.

Fun record, smooth, relaxing, funny lyrics! Vocals, however, get old by the end of the record (very little variety), 25 one to three minute tracks hinders the flow, and there are not too many memorable moments unfortunately.

Extremely enjoyable. A very unique musician. Apocalypse (LP) is one of my faves.
|4.5 superb||KingOzma | March 9th 17|
One of those albums that has something for everyone and a brilliant showcase for an amazing musician. Good stuff.

Walked in with no expectations so this was a pretty enjoyable release for me. Dude's gotta do something new here real soon but for now I really like "Friend Zone."

Honestly pretty surprised by the ratings here. I do understand the feeling of some stuff being undeveloped, but I really enjoy this front to back regardless.
|2.0 poor||there's.so.much.bible.fanfic. | February 25th 17|
I see the tracklist and I think 'thundercat's gone hardcore?'... Nah, that would've been interesting. it's mostly stupid fucking bullshit prog jazz that sounds all the same and few actual songs.

very disappointing release. it's good, but not nearly as good as it could've been. technically, this project is brilliant - as expected - but it falls short on the lyrical side of things and the concept isn't that interesting either. some songs don't transition well to the next. idk, i was expecting way more. it's good, but not as good as it needed to be. 3+
