[78.40] During Thundercat's album intermission before Drunk, he showcases Them Changes, a song leading Thundercat in a more ultra-funky/electronic direction than before, along with others that show the production experimentation that would later go into Drunk. I believe that this EP could just be any songs that didn't make it on to the 23 track album for whatever reason, though they def should've I have no issues with any of them.

Despite the closing track being quite underwhelming, "The Beyond / Where the Giants Roam" is a really good, albeit short, EP that further shows Thundercat's great talents with terrific production, smooth vocal performances and a better handle on the more experimental bits. "Them Changes" is especially a highlight here!

Fav Tracks: Them Changes, Lone Wolf and Cub, Song for the Dead

Least Fav Track: Where the Giants Roam / Field of the Nephilim

Very Good
A really great EP from Thundercat. Represents his signature style in such a beautiful way to the ear. The production on here is so much more broad and magical than his other R&B stuff which makes this EP stand out a lot more. This neo-soul/funk project is like a Side-B project where the songs aren’t quite significant or noteworthy (except Them Changes) but they are great songs.

This one didn't hit as much as the other Thundercat projects did, but this was still overall pretty good. It was very short and contained, but some songs were great! The song Them Changes was fantastic! I loved the jazzy funk it had. The songs were paced decently, but the last one really did nothing for me, it was kind of boring. Overall this EP is good. Nothing too special, but a good quick listen. Provides very relaxing and groovy vibes.
