Review Summary: A Monument to Madness.

As the prototypical meme collective, Death Grips have earned their right to completely piss and dance in the ashes of their so-called legacy. A monument to madness worldwide, MC Ride and Zach Hill have undoubtedly fulfilled their potential during a relatively brief tenure together. Dispensing with MC Ride's vocals for a loosely defined soundtrack (to what exactly is not clarified; typical), Zach Hill and Andy Morin get to work on their own terms on the instrumental Fashion Week. There's charm to be found in subtracting Ride's buffoonish ramblings, and the surprising level of melodic subtleties puts the album alongside The Money Store and No Love Deep Web in terms of tolerability for casuals. However, Hill doesn't possess particular proficient IDM production skills, often leaving the tracks cold and half-done without their manic frontman. Standouts come occasionally, with "Runway H (2)" making for interesting listening with its use of lush guitar samples. Generally speaking however the tracks tend to stagnate, refusing to coalesce as anything more than a promotional stunt. Heap on top of it the haphazard stunts within- acrostically promoting the powers that b - part II: jenny death, an innocuous early release to reddit.com- and what you get is easily Death Grips' least rewarding effort yet. Indeed, jenny death when"

on twitter they mentioned having not broken up and going out on a tour later but nothing these guys say should be taken seriously so don't think about it too much

Shouldn't this have been released just under the producer's name and not Death Grips?

At this point I just try to expect nothing and everything from Death Grips at the same time.

Agree with the review for the most part though. Dig some of the tracks but it just doesn't really feel like Death Grips and some of the tracks feel shoehorned in so they could spell out the stupid phrase.

My buddy loves DG and even if this sucks I'll probably hear it by the end of the month.
