The Line of Best Fit
With their sixth album in four years, there's absolutely no utterance of anything going stale.
Northern Transmissions

Death Grips open up their sound a lot and let singular hooks drive more than ever. While it’s a step in an interesting direction, the group’s insistence to hold onto their chaotic noise may still feel like a lot for most listeners.

Favorite Tracks: Hahaha, Black Paint, Streaky, Little Richard, Dilemma, Death Grips Is Online, Disappointed, The Fear

Least Favorite Track: Linda's in Custody
