Pretty Much Amazing

Another step forward for Death Grips, a group that seems to have walked over the horizon and out of sight albums ago.


On these ten tracks, they’ve harnessed the unbridled energy of Government Plates into their most fully formed songs since Money, which helps justify their bluster.


With ‘Jenny Death’, they’ve made their most accessible album to date.

Consequence of Sound

It lunges at you instead of inviting you to find the thrills in its detritus. It’s their most punk album, both musically and in function.

Tiny Mix Tapes

The beauty of Jenny Death, and of the Death Grips story itself, is that it testifies to the fundamental tension between the private and public functions of art. 

Before actually digging into this review, there's a few key concepts I wish get out of the way about how I enjoy albums:

Firstly, your composition may be the most well-executed, complex and 'talented' piece of music ever created, but if you perform it or create it without putting your heart and soul into it, it will be obvious and will never have that little "extra kick" over other albums.

Secondly, the reason why most of us (as in, members of this site) listen to albums rather than ... read more
Yeah, the better half of The Powers The B imo. I adore the hard rock feel of this album, like if Death Grips made a punk rock album and combined it with aspects of The Money Store. It's honestly carries the entirety of The Powers, after the disappointing Ni**as on the Moon. I can practically listen to every song on here without getting bored! Honestly in the same level as Bottomless Pit and The Money Store. Also, I'm sure that I'm not the only one that started bawling during On GP, right? ... read more
I did decide to review the two halves of 'The Powers That B' on their own, but that's just how I feel it should be done when both halves are so different in content, structure, etc. With the latter half of the double album, I do think it is the weaker of the two, but this is enjoyable in it's own aspects. This is much louder and in your face than 'Niggas on the Moon', but there is really nothing wrong with that. This albums sound has a rough aesthetic, with the instrumentation and production ... read more
people really prefer TMS to this? this is incredible. action packed and exhilarating from start to finish.
Holy shit. Whilst retaining the sound of the industrial, experimental hip-hop that DG are known for, they mananged to work in some industrial rock elements that just work masterfully. My only complaint is that at times, the album can feel like its holding back - Like they're putting off really blowing the listeners mind away like they did on first listens of the Money Store. Regardless, this is incredibly, incredibly good, and is by far the better half of the Powers that B.
