    Bruner has some pretty sweet, vibey chops that he deploys sporadically here. If cultivated, he could deliver that skewed-fusion, weed hazed love letter he's attempted here. In the meantime, best to let him noodle it out on his own.

    A little muscle, and maybe even a little heavy-metal menace, would have balanced the album out nicely.

    Both fierce and mellow, this is smooth-jazz with an alluringly punky heart. [Sep 2011, p.96]

    His mellifluous style, best exemplified on Boat Cruise and Jamboree, ebbs and flows without ever letting go of the groove. A bit like Jaco Pastorius in a space suit.

The bassist of Suicidal Tendencies, under moniker Thundercat, released his album on 2011. Unlike any sort of jazz I've listened before, The Golden Age of Apocalypse sets off a cosmic, sonic and electrifying vibe. It's a strong, bass centric jam that would soothed the tensest minds.
