Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.8/100, a mean average of 79.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

There is a lot of great songs on this record that surprisingly have some very catchy choruses. It is also very aggressive which is helped by the rapping style and the guitar and drums. Just like on every DG album they really don't slow down the pace and bombard you with music right from the go. This doesn't mean that the beats aren't carefully made however, as there is still their classic multi layering style. Despite this, the overall quality of songs don't match up with their better records. Also, while it is still aggressive, it feels a bit more watered down than there other work making me lean towards their other projects. Overall, it is a lot of fun to listen too and there are loads of cuts you can pull from this record to add to your playlist.

Not as chaotic as I think it should have been. Still an entertaining ride but there are too many choruses if you ask me. It's a good album but I prefer the likes of The Powers That B and Government Plates rather than this and the Money Store which I think is probably their most similar release. The guitars that they experimented with on their previous album have a much bigger part to play on Bottomless Pit. It makes the music sound much more aggressive but I wish they would get a little more creative with them. For an album that claims to have "fucked (the listener) in half", it's relatively accessible in the Death Grips discography. My favorite song on this album is "Ring A Bell" and I also really like "Hot Head" and "BB Poison".

Death Grips release an album every year practically, and I’m almost always into it. After their letdown of a spot at Simple Things this year, I kinda slowed down on listening to them, but Bottomless Pit brought me back. Not necessarily earth-shattering, more of an interesting stopover before they inevitably take things to a whole new level on the next album.

Best track: Trash. If you already know you don’t like Death Grips, this won’t really change your mind, but for what it’s worth it’s a little more streamlined and clean than their other work.

Love how they continued the aesthetic of Jenny Death with this record. Solid album, a lot like The Money Store.

This may soon by my favorite DG project. I have never been a huge fan of their sound like others are, but I can appreciate it at times. This album seems to just have more of those times than other albums. I feel like I hear an interesting hardcore trash metal influence on some of these tracks, which is really interesting and cool.

Loving this almost as much as The Money Store. The use of the drum kit is more prevalent here though and I love that. Hot Head, Spikes, Warping, and Bubbles Buried In The Jungle feature some crazy, catchy, and creative rhythms that MC Ride effortlessly vibes over.


Some huge hooks on here and unique lyrics, great stuff. Listen with headphones.

An absolute blast to listen to from the top to the bottom. There is not a weak song and each track has something unique to offer while still sounding incredibly cohesive. Quite possibly my favourite Death Grips project.

Trying to wrap my head on this record, new to Death Grips material. I like it but, like i said, I'm trying to understand what's going on.
