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

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.

This further legitimizes Thundercat as a solo funk artist and excites listeners for his upcoming album. He's not just backing the likes of Flying Lotus, Erykah Badu, and Kendrick Lamar anymore, he's writing some great funk/ neo-soul classics.
Thundercat is brilliant when it comes to some funk, slow, classy music. I dont know how he does it but it works brilliantly.
Good EP, looking forward to seeing what Thundercat can spin into a full-length album. Them Changes is a great tune.
