MadGrinder
June 9th 2014

I actually loved it, the glitchiness in this is just insane, and the way the Death Grips agression is juxtaposed with the harmonious and atmospheric Bjork samples, and the way Death Grips musically rape Bjork and use her outstanding and powerful voice as a mere instrument to complement their music, it's unpredictable, it's innovative, it's beyond genious. And the consistency of this thing, every track surpasses most of all the Death Grips discography (except for a few ones in Money Store, maybe one or two from Exmil and No Love Deep Web), and the tracks just segway perfectly into each other, getting more and more spazzic as the album progresses. For me Death Grips achieved their full potential here as the experimental, revolutionary, glitchy, atmospheric, agressive, spazzic and insane hip-hop act they were shaping to be and did showcase in The Money Store.

Some of my favorite moments in DG's discog are ones that utilize vocal sampling (Hustle Bones, Double Helix, etc) so I'm glad they're finally taking full advantage of the technique with these songs
