CRITIC REVIEWS

100
Drowned in Sound

It is a Death Grips record, simple as; a completely successful experiment in isolating artistry from external pressures to produce an artefact that will inform pioneers-to-come.

100
No Ripcord

The Money Store might be the very definition of acquired taste, and will most likely alienate the vast majority who attempt to give it a spin, but it's undeniably an extraordinary record.

90
Beats Per Minute

Despite the unwelcoming persona, repeated listens will uncover an embarrassment of spine-tingling details and hidden corners that any headphone enthusiast will revel in.

90
Tiny Mix Tapes

Death Grips have managed to situate themselves in a unique and peculiar territory in which they are both peerless and able to appeal to fans of almost everything.

90
The 405

The Money Store thrusts countless adjectives towards the listener. It's eccentric, confrontational, disorientating. Crucially, however, it's fresh.

87
Pitchfork

Sometimes this hands-off approach backfires, but Death Grips have actual designs to be left to, and The Money Store is a million-mph blur of ideas.

83
A.V. Club

The Money Store is simultaneously fun and torturous, just melodic enough to keep listeners on board even as its extremes border on cruel. 

80
Spin

The Money Store, fits into modern hip-hop like a square peg on fire, a 40-minute straitjacket tantrum of vein-popping, slow-flow barks closer to Helmet's Page Hamilton than Harlem's Charles Hamilton.

musicOMH

Certainly it’s far from an easy listen, and only those familiar with their earlier catalogue will be able to pick it up right away.

70
Consequence of Sound

The trio’s very existence depends on toeing a line between maintaining rap’s brooding thuggish-ness without overpowering it with their dubstep-inspired aesthetic.

60
NME

It’s hard to glean any sense of intention, let alone manifesto, from the lyrics, and the manner in which it’s presented is, in the end, alienating.

Death Grips follow up their fantastic debut with another game-changing release. The shock factor isn't nearly as high as it was in 'Exmilitary,' but this is still just insanely catchy and balls to the wall the whole way through.
