Pretty Much Amazing
What’s important to note is that although their enigmatic vocalist took the day off, it doesn’t feel like anything is missing.

Spin

Fashion Week is very different from any other Death Grips album just for being so linear, and while Stefan Burnett's guttural, performance art-ish MCing is missed, their astoundingly dark and imaginative sonic palette remains intact.

Exclaim!

While not as album-oriented as their past efforts have been, Fashion Week functions well as a beat tape through the diverse range of influences that Hill and producer Andy "Flatlander" Morin and have chosen to explore.

MC Ride is desperately needed. Whereas some instrumental tapes function amazingly alone, Death Grips not only need Stefan to add depth and value to these beats, albeit sonically diverse and well-developed, but also for this to be called a "Death Grips" album.
