Default Bottomless Pit | Death Grips


1.) Giving Bad People Good Ideas
2.) Hot Head
3.) Spikes
4.) Warping
5.) Eh
6.) Bubbles Buried In This Jungle
7.) Trash
8.) Houdini
9.) BB Poison
10.) Three Bedrooms In A Good Neighborhood
11.) Ring A Bell
12.) 8080808
13.) Bottomless Pit


It's leaked. From what I gather, it doesn't strike me so much as them reinventing the wheel anymore, that was done with their previous records. With this one, they're merely re-hashing Niggas on the Moon and Jenny Death throwaways and No Love Deep Web B-sides. And I love every last dripping second of it.

Favorite lyric: I'LL FUCK YOU IN HALF

First impressions: this album makes me hard.

On my first listen it reminded me a lot of NLDW, but the more I listen to it the more it stands on its own. I don't think they reinvented the wheel by any means, but it's still weird, glitchy, in-your-face Death Grips and that's what we all want, isn't it? Also, Zach Hill goes absolutely nuts on a few of these tracks and I absolutey love love loved those moments.

I've only had about 3 full listens, but at the moment I would put it above The Powers That B but not quite Exmilitary or TMS territory. Another phenomenal release nonetheless though.

Hot Head is one of their best songs. I'll be back later to post my full thoughts after a few listens.

Since the surprise release of Government Plates, they've opted for more a lo-fi approach, Bottomless Pit showing no considerable difference. It'd be nice for them to get that inner slickly mixed Money Store sound again. They probably won't though, it seems like they dislike that record.

What makes you think that they dislike tms?

Also, yeah, I've noticed the the new album is a bit muddier, but that could be because the leak is a pretty low bit rate iirc.

Because after The Money Store, they proclaimed that No Love Deep Web was really the record they always wanted to make. Then the whole record label clusterfuck with Epic records and that subsequent demise, then they started to embrace lo-fi recordings, more of a raw, primal sound. I could be completely wrong, they might think that that's their best record to date. I doubt it though.

About halfway through it now, and I'm thinking that this one's going to have to grow on me. It sounds very much like a phoned in redux of Powers That B, with them rehashing a lot of the same sounds and song styles. Not bad by any means because Powers That B is their best album imo, but I was expecting a lot better. 7/10 as it stands.

Yeah, I know what DG thinks about the record. What's your opinion, though?

On Bottomless Pit? Sadly, disappointed actually. I gave it a "great" rating but if I could take it back it'd be a strong eh to a light good, depending on the day. "Giving bad people good ideas", "Hot Head", "Spikes", "Eh" and maybe two more songs I enjoy. So 6 out of 13 tracks, which isn't consistent enough for me, considering they've always been concordant from front to back with most of their records. It's a sad day for this DG fan.

I have yet to finish listening to this album. I may put aside some time to force myself to do at least a full play through but listening to this reminds me why I have to be in the mood to listen to DG in the first place. I don't dislike them but I don't nut my pants over them either.
