  1. There's more space in these tracks, and unlikely hints of sweetening both orchestral and distaff that come as laugh moments whether the lunatics running the asylum think they're funny or not.

    No Love Web Deep is another scintillating missive from one America's most conceptually rich hip-hop acts.

    For the second time in one year, both on a large label and on their own, they've released a record ruthless and rewarding enough to animate that image.

    As far as the argument over whether Death Grips are indie rap's great, destructive Dada Art crew or whether they are just the genre's Spinal Tap, the excellent No Love Deep Web suggests they're the sophisticated former.
  5. While No Love Deep Web is not the masterpiece The Money Store undeniably is, it still manages to be both a substantial step forward and, even more importantly, a work not easily forgotten.

    The record is certainly denser and more difficult to find an entry point into than either of its predecessors; but this is not remotely to say that their label made the right the decision. After several listens, a handful of stone-cold, diamond-hard gems present themselves from of a scree of electronic beats and stentorian rapping/shouting.

    No Love Deep Web includes some of the group's most accessible material; "Lil Boy" and "Deep Web" are the type of glitch freak-outs over which Lil Ugly Mane acolytes and Crystal Castles fans can come together.

    No Love Deep Web continues Death Grips' death trip, and is another solid 47 minutes of artistic aggro.

    Nihilism doesn't even begin to describe the mood created by the skittering electronic drums, uneasy atmospheric noises and MC Ride's manic scream-rapping.

    It's relentless top to bottom, but if you can get beyond the occasional groaning psycho-sexual screams there's a whole alternate network Death Grips have created.

    His unfocused ire dominates every inch of space. It's frustrating because the best tracks here deftly whirl together seemingly disparate styles. [Dec 2012, p.61]

    When this album hits, it hits hard, but for the first time in their career, the barrage is intermittent instead of constant.

    Even at a meaty 46 minutes, the album still suffers from a feeling of writer's block.

    No Love Deep Web is yet another great effort from Death Grips. From a production standpoint, this thing is solid, It takes the great production elements of both their previous albums and finds a nice combination. Another element that makes this album stand out is the lyrics, I can easily call this the darkest out of all the Death Grips albums. MC Ride's vocals stand out more as voice is less buried in the instrumental track, this reveals some pretty frightening lyrics that sound conceived from sort of terrible drug trip. The lyrics amplify primal desires of MC Ride's person even more. Overall this was a great album even if it didn't seem as consistent as the Money Store. Full Review »

    No Love Deep Web seems more or less very inaccessible as opposed to the Money Store, but in fact, in my opinion, I found it to be way more accessible than The Money Store. The production seems way more stripped down and took a much darker approach. If The Money Store didn't seem to dark for you, No Love Deep Web will surely fix that. The best way I like to describe it is if The Money Store was MC Ride contemplating suicide, No Love is him actually committing it. The lyrics are in your face and as abrasive as anything this band has ever done. All In All, No Love Deep Web is an album full of fantastic ideas and from a band that just keeps getting better.

    This was the album that assured me that Death Grips were one of the best thing I've ever heard. A rebellion scream with the band's harsh, rugged and unique sound. One of the best bands of the decade shows what they can do when released from the tightened ropes of the music industry. Simply strange and amazing. Full Review »
