  • Summary: The Sacramento noise rap trio's second release ended its contract with Epic after it released the album online for free [1 Oct 2012] with an obscene cover image. It was officially released on CD/vinyl in 2013.

  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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

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. Expand

    9.5 would be more accurate. No Love Deep Web has Death Grips pursuing a wider array of sounds, and is a little quieter overall than9.5 would be more accurate. No Love Deep Web has Death Grips pursuing a wider array of sounds, and is a little quieter overall than Exmilitary, and a little slower paced than The Money Store. The production is more minimalistic, but that's about all that's cohesive on the album. Songs like Deep Web, take an atmospheric approach to vocals, No Love comes off as almost march-like, Whammy is a little less dark, Hunger Games is super minimal and vocal driven, then finally, the last two tracks, Bass Rattle Stars Out the Sky and Artificial Death in the West employ an almost psychadelic sound.
    This album is Death Grips at their weirdest, but if you like DG, you'll love this album.

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.

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. Expand

    In my opinion, I think this was actually better than The Money Store. The main improvement over this album over The Money Store is that MCIn my opinion, I think this was actually better than The Money Store. The main improvement over this album over The Money Store is that MC Ride's vocals are definitely more audible - and his aggressiveness shows even more. I don't think he has some of the best lyrics out there - but honestly, what matters more about MC Ride is his aggressiveness. The production here has also noticed a great improvement - I like Morin's electronics, even more shows here than on The Money Store. They also show they are almost as original as they did on The Money Store - but not exactly quite, which leads to my main concern about this album: Not enough Zach Hill on this album. He can play the drums - but there are more 808's here than drum sets. But, overall, they have shown an improvement over The Money Store, even if Zach Hill was absent a lot. Grade: A. Highlights: "Come Up and Get Me", "No Love", "Stockton". Worst song: "Whammy" (that sample is irritating!) Expand
