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.

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.

Consequence of Sound

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

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.

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.

Coming from their previous project that came out not even six months earlier, this is still pretty great, but not as great in my opinion. This is a lot more minimal when compared to the thicker 'The Money Store', but this is dense in it's own ways. This is dark and twisted in its lyrical themes, maybe a little more than usual for Death Grips and the song-writing is just as cryptic as it always is for Death Grips. This is not their catchiest but there are some stand-out catchy tracks. When it ... read more

Slept on how good this album was when it first came out because I was still enjoying The Money Store well into the summer of '13. Once No Love Deep Web was release in physical format, I started to listen to it all the time. I just started driving at this time and this was typically my CD of choice to pop in. No Love Deep Web is very introverted and dark compared to money store, yet still feels like a close relative to it too. For the longest time I couldn't decide which album I prefer most, and ... read more

“No Love Deep Web” isn’t nearly as amazing as “The Money Store”, but it features enough hooks, beats and aggression to make it an essential Death Grips record. The lyrics here are as intense as always and they go for an even more bassy and minimalist sound here!
