From doubleA
For me this hit bullseye. In my opinion every song manages to be such a banger while simultaneously managing to flow so well together. That's why every time I feel like listening to a song from this album I end up listening to everything because I can't leave anything out.

But this is definitely not for everyone, and I totally understand why.

The boys did something cool here. It may not be much at first, but the more you come back, the better you'll feel about it.

This album hits you very hard when you are not prepared. I don't think I've ever heard anything like this, wich is definitely and up, but when I take that out, everything else don't impress me. I think they did a pretty good job on coming up with a original sound, wich It is hard these days, but It lacks control, I know this is intentional, but for me anything experimental like this can only go as far for me in matter of enjoyement. It needs to have at least some type of base. Don't get me wrong here, Death Grips is one that bands that needs to exist, to pushing something foward, but they themself aren't my thing, but I would definitely listen to something Death Grips inspired, more focused and with at least a little bit of pop-conscience, something more like "I've Seen Footage".

A solid record from start to finish. Extremely re-listenable and catchy.

Honestly, my only issue with this album is that it isn’t wild enough. The beats could be a lot more slippery. After you’ve heard Aphex Twin’s “Come To Daddy” or M.I.A.’s “STEPPIN UP”, anything on here sounds like a lullaby. But honestly, it doesn’t even beat (proto-)punk like The Beatles’ “Helter Skelter” and The Stooges’ “Search and Destroy” in messiness. I’m sitting here shouting at the album: “come on, blow my mind, do it”, but they won’t.
What is remarkable about this album is how MC Ride’s rapping is as rhythmically unsettling as the beats, and that’s something I don’t think I’ve ever heard.

The fact that M.I.A.’s Maya was overlooked and this wasn’t is either a proof of sexism or a hate towards her political views, or it is proof that music critics are complete idiots and will never recognize a masterpiece when it’s shoved up their noses after which they give the wrong people credit. Oh well... wouldn’t be the first time.

At its best the money store is a monstrous rampage through the dark web, unfortunately it often gets swallowed up in its own abrasiveness. wonderfully original however.

I had this rated this 35! Ha. My view of what rap music should be like is slowly evolving! This would be a favourite if I was 15. That's not a derogatory comment, this is very good. In your face.
