FACT Magazine

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

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.

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.

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.

I like the cover but the sound isn't really 'cockish' enough for my tastes. Too digital and warbly, and lots of yelling. I mean I guess if you use the black box cover it's more fitting. Not worthy of the dicking... not yet
