FACT Magazine

By mothballing the swampy fug and tensile detail, this time Death Grips pivot on razor-edged resolve and naked might. 

82
Pitchfork

For now, at least, NO LOVE DEEP WEB is an extraordinary outlier in most every sense, an album with no definitive home or home turf aside from the millions who will likely download it. 

80
The 405

Although it didn't initially scorch my face off like April's The Money Store did, it has made me realise how serious Death Grips are and has also made me recognise the amount of potential they possess.

80
Tiny Mix Tapes

One of the most interesting aspects of this record is how very paranoid it is, how it bites us on the hand when we get too close. 

80
Beats Per Minute

While No Love Deep Web is not the masterpiece The Money Store undeniably is, it still manages to be both a substantial step forward and, even more importantly, a work not easily forgotten.

70
Consequence of Sound

With NO LOVE DEEP WEB, Death Grips continues to distort and debase the map of rap and punk

60
No Ripcord

Musical growth takes a backseat to offensiveness, and the urgency that made the group so great before is gone as traits have become gimmicks and parody.

50
A.V. Club

No Love Deep Web is a cautionary tale of misplaced punk ideals, a so-so album the group rushed to meet an arbitrary deadline it set for itself, then released in protest of a label it voluntarily signed to.

Their second release from 2012 is without a doubt their best album for me. Even though this was the album that got me into the band, I can call this my favourite for how consistent it is and the intensity that it improved upon from 'The Money Store.'

Favourite tracks: No Love, World of Dogs, Bass Rattle Stars Out the Sky

Great punk album. Makes you want to kill things.

Death Grips went in a more electronic direction this time. And while that yielded some great tunes, it also made some of the production fall a little flat. The electronic beats work for the most part, but it doesn't quite the same punch. But seriously though, how could I not like this in the end.

Best Tracks: Come Up And Get Me, Lil Boy, No Love, Black Dice, Whammy, Deep Web, Bass Rattle Stars Out The Sky

Worst Tracks: Hunger Games, Stockton

-2012 AOTY #3-

1- This is sonically their closest project to my personal favorite, Government Plates. The difference of No Love Deep Web is Ride's appearance in standard frequency and it's easier-to-follow song structure.

2- Content is in your face, the artwork is no joke.
