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.

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.

If you listen to this album, or any other DG album, and you ask yourself: "Why the hell does anyone like this crap?" The last thing you should do following that thought, is to post a rating, or tell people you think DG sucks because sadly, you just don't understand it yet. This album is so far, the best thing released this year. DG for life.

Stable is the first word that comes to mind after listening, and that's not a good description for a band like DG that always smashing the boundaries.
