CRITIC REVIEWS

Pretty Much Amazing

Bottomless Pit’s bloodthirsty joyousness is infectious, refreshing, and exactly what you’d hope for from a new Death Grips release. It’s the culmination of everything they’ve been working towards since the beginning, and in absolutely no respect does it disappoint.

90
FasterLouder

Bottomless Pit is possessed, and songs like ‘Eh’ and ‘Three Bedrooms In A Bad Neighbourhood’ are as vital as anything the group has yet released.

90
The Needle Drop

Death Grips perfects the art of abrasive ear candy on their latest record.

81
Pitchfork

On their new album Bottomless Pit, they stitch together one of their most cohesive grotesques ever, renewing their focus on songcraft, rather than chicanery. It's sure to elicit a sigh of relief among fans who’ve grown jaded with the band’s work.

80
PopMatters

Bottomless Pit will clearly not be for all hip-hop or punk fans, but it is impossible to deny that this album, just like the rest of the duo’s catalog, is doing a much-needed service to both genres by experimenting with them in unimaginable ways.

80
DIY

The sound of a Death Grips record is unmistakable – powerful, aggressive and confrontational. Which leads us on to ‘Bottomless Pit’ – very much more of the same, while pushing their sound forward.

80
Spin

Bottomless Pit is a rowdy and hypnotic 40-minute suite of alienation and controlled anger. It’s Death Grips. F**k with them.

80
Exclaim!

Despite pairing their explosive and experimental tendencies with straightforward song structures for this latest descent into sonic despair, the record is hardly a rehash.

80
AllMusic

Everything sounds so precise, crisp, hard-hitting, and indomitable. For that exact reason, Bottomless Pit is an ideal effort for longtime fans and newcomers alike. Needless to say, whatever the type of listener, it won't be forgotten.

80
Rolling Stone

For all the different genres it consumes and spits back, it sounds like no other band on earth.

75
Consequence of Sound

Bottomless Pit is Death Grips 2.0, as promised.

Tiny Mix Tapes
Like watching a great beast eat itself, there is little in the way of elegance or grand design to this music, yet it remains throttling nonetheless, as relentlessly blunt as it is overwhelmingly meaningless.

'I'M ALL UP IN MY GLORY HOLE S-O NO NO NO'

Amazing

I wholeheartedly believe that this is how The Money Store should have sounded. There is more of a concise sound, overall more energy from all members, and more memorable moments. Every track is as abrasive and insane as the last, making for an experience with no break inbetween, only sheer sound. The wall of noise that this record is not only introduced me to Death Grips, but also introduced me to Hip-Hop/Rap as a genre. This album opened up a door for me that had been closed prior to ... read more

Death Grips is so badass though... there's no denying that

From front to back, this thing is absolutely relentless and bewitchingly evil.

The thing I absolutely adore about Death Grips is how unpredictable they are.

One track after another, the band doesn't leave any
clues to how deep they will dive into the unknown.

Bottomless Pit is more than just an ear feast of sadistic venom.

Full Video Review on my youtube channel @"Brad Taste In Music"

This album is brutal. It is merciless. It is Death grips basically stripped down to perfection.

This album has no negatives. I can listen to this thing front to back no problem
The production is unreal.

This is the musical equivalent of Cocaine

I hated this thing on my first listen after loving the money store, and I had to listen to Powers that B before I adjusted to this sound but man it works too well.
