Have you listened to the critically acclaimed Death Grips album?
Epic Records recently signed Death Grips, a group from Sacramento, who released their second album, “The Money Store”, on April 24, 2012. Since then there has been a flurry of amazing reviews from a wide spectrum of music critics and fans.
The experimental group self-released their first album, “Exmilitary”, last year and it featured in Tiny Mix Tapes Favorite 50 Albums of 2011 list. And from what everyone is saying, it's likely it will also make 2012's list! “It's seemingly impossible to discern a weak number from the 13-song set” states Tiny Mix Tapes.
Drowned In Sound goes on to say, “The Money Store thrills like no other set heard this year.” They add, “Rather better than anticipated, actually. Indeed, Death Grips' second album, and first of a pair due via the major label machine of Epic before the year is out, is the most intoxicating, invigorating, envelope-pushing long-player of 2012 to date.”
Pitchfork gave the album an unusually high 8.7 (out of 10) for them saying, “The Money Store is a million-mph blur of ideas…Death Grips appeals to the knuckle-dragging troglodyte and the smirking smart kid in us: thick-headed goonery and bookish, viscera-free nerdiness, making beautifully misanthropic music together.”
While every review has their own take and interpretation of “The Money Store”, it seems that fans agree with them, collectively rating them 9.2/10, as compiled by Metacritic!
