Thundercat captures his vision and gives us a clear view of how fun and crazy he can be.
HubCity
If you give this a chance you'll find it is rewarding in a very different yet equally valid way than the Thundercat debut.
G. S. Kline
I think the music is good but it sounds like it is a few steps away from a finished album.

I have to admit my musical tastes are pretty out there, but If you're like me and dig unique, original music that "speaks" to you...you gotta try this. It's a fresh sound that is a welcome break from redundancy, TASTEFULLY combining electronic programming and R&B/Soul. Organic instruments with Synth is an often failed venture, but mr. olympian here did it well. Oh,and the lyrics are the sh!znit. Good rhythm, rhyme and writing. Apocalypse..you don't want to miss it.

It has never ceased to delight me that since 2010 there has been a consistently high level of innovation happening within music. For one thing,indie developments of the past fifteen years aren't so indie anymore. And musicians who have been waiting in the wings to emerge are again beginning to do so with new and exciting musical hybrids. This is especially true of the jazz/funk/soul spectrum. Stephen "Thundercat" Bruner-with a father and brother who've alternately played with the likes of Diana Ross,The Temptations,Stanley Clarke and so on is one of these people. Having been the bass player for thrash/funk/metal band Suicidal Tendencies with his brother Ron Thundercat re-upped as a solo artist in 2011. Rather makes sense if you think about it since metal and funk are more easily blended than one might think due to both music's emphasis on a strong groove and being rooted in the blues. The difference is the approach-playing dirty (metal) or playing cleanly (funk). So this is Thundercat's sophomore release. The question I have to ask myself in this situation is one asked before: why am I only hearing about Thundercat just now?

Produced with the help of Flying Lotus this album begins with "Ten Fold","Heartbreaks + Setbacks","The Life Aquatic","Special Stage" and the ambient styled "Tron Song". These songs are build around harmonically rich swirls of electronic synthesizers-pulsing Moog type bass blending with Thundercat's electric bass riffing. His high,ethereal voice keeps up with these melodically and rhythmically challenging grooves. The bass groove "Seven" is one of the speediest and most nimble I've heard on such a spare "nu jazz" number,apparently a funk hybrid I didn't know the name to.

I thought Thundercat's first album (the Golden Age of Apocalypse) was a classic and loved every track. This album is cool and continues to grow on me, I just wish it displayed more of his musicianship like the first album. I understand artist grow/evolve and glean material from different places. With all that said I would buy it again for my collection.

Thundercat's first album hit the scene hard and set him up to be quite respected as a solo artist. In this second effort, the spirit is still there, but the strength of the first albums concept/storyline approach is missing.

Not every album has to be a concept, mind you, but what happens in this case is that you get a few tunes that are deep and complex in rhythms and harmonies, and stand fairly well on their own such as the opener "Tenfold". But other tracks don't seem to fit into the picture quite as well. Other tracks also just leave you scratching your head about whether Stephen Bruner got a chance to finish writing his thoughts out before recording (such as "A Message for Austin"). And though I love the bass chopz of this dude (as a bass player myself), it seems this album does not get quite as creative with the bass sounds, and licks seem to sound a little too repetitive and too similar in tone (bass eq, where he plays over the neck-bridge area...) On the previous album, he seems to play around more with effect pedals and the eq to give the bass more depth across the album.

If you like the Thundercat sound, there will be great nuggets here for you. The soulful playfulness is there on a few tunes like "Without You" and "Lotus and the Jondy" where you recall Bruners Neo-soul background. But unlike the previous album, where I could get my smoke on while watching a psychedelic light show and feel like I was being transported to a higher dimension... This album will have a few bumps in the road that prevent it from ever quite adding up the the fantastic voyage that Thundercat is truly capable of.

I didn't know anything about Thundercat until I played GTA 5. That song "O S*** its X" just stuck with me and I couldn't get it out of my head, it was like feel good music. People like my friends and girl friend would be like "What are you humming"? Then one day my girl saw me playing GTA 5 and the song came on and she immediately knew what it was. She didn't like it at first but then after a while she was humming it too lol!

As far as the album, it doesn't keep the flow from beginning to end and I felt there was something missing and some tracks we could have done without. Thundercat has a good voice so I would have like to hear more songs like "Heartbreaks", "Without You", and "Walking" from his previous album. Some of the songs were going for all the way awesome but then you get to the very end of the song and then there is some long drawn out hash of instrumentals that just throws the listener off, in my opinion breaks the flow.
Compared to his last album I bought it looks like Thundercat as an artist is getting better and better.
Hope to hear another album soon, it would be nice if he did some more work with Flying Lotus too!
