There are some really killer tracks, and Josh is shockingly good at signing as well as his harsh vocals, but the album feels a bit disjointed and just doesn't hit like I hoped it would. It's still a great album, but it needs some work.
Also the song titles are kind of dumb.
EDIT: And just like with The Chariot, a lot of this works better in a live setting.

I love Death Grips. I love what they do, I love that they truly could not give a single solitary shit about what people think about them, and I love that every album they drop is out of the blue with little to no warning.

|FearThyEvil Don't bother arguing with Sitar. Just like he's shown in the Periphery thread, he's shown how retarded he is. A lot of people attacked that dumbass statement he made on the For Today other than you pointing out how dumb it was. |
|FearThyEvil I'm glad I read your comment more thoroughly in the periphery thread because I read it wrong and thought you were attacking me. Completely wrong and you backed me up. Sitar is being a ****ing idiot. This isn't the first time he's gone full retard though. |
