It was the first thing i had ever heard from them. I loved it immediately. At 18, this was the raw energy i was looking for in hip hop. I wouldnt even be such a fan of the genre if it hadnt been for this album and Earl Sweatshirt. Plus it introduced me to Hella.

I can't say I've heard anything like this and I'm glad it exists. It's experimental hip hop with some punk influence and with lots of rich thick electronic sounds and often siren sounds and random pitches doing weird sweeping effects in the place of chords. As someone who looks for harmony and melody (yes even in hip hop if you can even classify this as hip hop) it's hard for me to really get into this music as "best of the decade" like the infamous anthony fantano claims.

The rapping is also very skittish and unconventional. There's some clear Killer Mike influence, in the beats, production style, and rapping cadence.

I enjoy the rhythms and the creativity and there is certainly some cool stuff going on with the production. That said it's not really something I enjoy as much as some seem to that would make me give it a higher rating. I appreciate it in the same way I appreciate something like Captain Beefheart - I admire that they did what they did and recognize that it is pretty remarkable, even if it's not really my thing. It's definitely worth a listen or two that's for sure.

I somehow like this album and I don't know why. This is certainly a banger album.

Took a while for me to get used to, but there are so many great tracks on this album including Get Got, I've Seen Footage, Bitch Please, and Hacker. Even though it may not be deep in its lyrics, Death Grips makes up for it with the production on the album, as its some of the best that heard on a hip hop album.

Favorite Track: Hacker

I can't give a solid score because it fluctuates for me.

Honestly, I'm unimpressed. Death Grips is a great band, and this album just doesn't live up to expectation, or reach the bar they've set for themselves in the past. Weak instrumentation. It feels like they're just making bad hip hop, and then trying to make up for it at the end of each song by throwing in some funky voice effect or arp. The lyrics are unmemorable. It feels heavy just for the sake of being heavy.

Not feeling it at all, I do respect what it is trying to do, but it just doesn't sound *right* to me. The production is fantastic though.

Death Grips is one of those bands that hit you on the head with a hammer creating a versatile and hard hitting experience unlike any you have had before. The album "Money Store" the band creates a sound that is both unique to them and accessible for others.
