CRITIC REVIEWS

90
musicOMH

This album is the full realisation of his talent as a bass player, musician and, most importantly, a songwriter. Apocalypse is, in short, a supreme triumph.

90
Drowned in Sound

With its roots in tragedy and loss and its furthermost fronds in hope and moving forward, an album that challenges listeners with an incredible level of subtlety, hidden depths and wash of openly expressed emotion.

86
Beats Per Minute

There’s a wealth of sonic variety on display but the concise run-time – clocking in at a fraction over 40 minutes – keeps matters focused and thoroughly engaging

85
The Line of Best Fit

Apocalypse is a winner from first listen onwards, but the effortlessness of it means it’s easy to take for granted.

82
Pitchfork

At his best, Thundercat has reversed the evolutionary process where technology, experimentation, and crossover made music more complicated-- instead taking prog and fusion as a starting point to be whittled down, rather than a destination to be built up to.

80
Consequence of Sound

Each listen not only dives deeper into some of the most advanced instrumentalism heard this year, but also dissects each nerve ending of Thundercat’s heart

70
The Fly

Overall ‘Apocalypse’ is a worthwhile listen, and it’s a damn sight better than the guff so beloved by those sweaty guitar-shop types.

70
NME

If you’ve come for the production of label jefe Flying Lotus, you get it, but with an added dose of Miguel-style cooing about breakups and makeups

Perhaps not Thundercats most fun or most polished project, this is still a really fun banger with a lot of quality tracks on it.

Favorite track: Oh Sheit It's X

Tremendo bajista, hace un poco lo que le viene en gana y encima le sale bien.
