What's up with the tracklist, or is it more supposed to be a continuous track? I looked it up and there are like 30 songs on a 30 minute album.
Its 15 tracks. Some of the beat are recycled-"the ritual", the ending tnght track and the earl feature was out a few weeks ago.

I think you can download the delux edition for free it has different cover art for each song it pretty cool

I thought Duality was pretty cool. The lyrics werent all that great but it was fun album with great beats. I loved the old old samples like on MMF and Gone fishing. I also love the ignorance on Drive thru

True. But I don't consider MC Ride as a proper "MC" to be honest. Death Grips' music is much better though.

It is. I mean, you can look to Flying Lotus' music itself for a much better version, or ASAP Rocky or whatever, but who's doing what Death Grips do? Hardly anyone. And I prefer what they are doing to some spacey Hip Hop beats that have become completely boring, especially when accompanied by a terrible rapper.

i feel like comparing death grips to Flylo/captain murphy is different. When i listened to them both i had compleatly two different impressions on it, yet i loved them both. Death Grips are incredibly original, they are bushing the genre of hiphop so far that it is barely only hiphop and I love it. Captain Murphy was just something fun, that album was one of thoes albums you dont come to for great lyricism like when you would listen to ASAP Rocky. BUT i do know what your saying because most of the songs I do like beacause of the beats, the songs i dont like on Duality are also because of the beats. The lyrics just add something extra to it for me

Better version of what?

Why is it boring? Why is he a terrible rapper?

Firstly, I mean the genre as a whole (cloud rap/psychedelic rap) is becoming boring, not Captain Murphy, because nobody is pushing much of a boundary. It's good, no doubt, but nothing out of the ordinary or extremely interesting.

And he is just a pretty trashy rapper. I don't think it's something I have to explain in great detail.

So because Death Grips music is different it's much better?

I'm not going to contest the "whole ---- is becoming boring"because a, its an awesome blanket statement, no doubt, and b, i had no idea cloud rap/psychedelic rap was a genre, much less one already on the demise.

As for the rapping ability, it's certainly suspect. But these aren't exactly basic beats,I have yet to hear anyone rap better on TNGHT(don't believe me google Kenderick Lamar+TNGHT). I think the production of his voice, the combination of tyler-esque monotone and quasimoto-inspired high pitch voice are engaging enough that they make up for what he lacks structurally.
It's fairly deep, i'm still picking out new reference and whatknot, something I can't do when listening to death grip because the dude isn't so much actually rapping as he is blabbering nonsense, albeit in a very cutting edge, profound way.

I am fine with the rest of your post, it's all opinion, but please don't assume that I think the above.

It's different AND better. If it was different and terrible (to my tastes) I wouldn't be sticking up for it.
