I'm pretty late to the clipping party. What did mu/ think of this album again?
I feel this way about Clipping in general. They and their tracks just seem off-the-mark and unexciting most of the time. I have consistent hope for them (I still do) and they shine through sometimes, but never for a whole album.
Midcity is better, it was more noisy. CLPPNG seemed like it was trying to be more mainstream hiphop, aka shit. I'm positive they have the potential to make a 10/10 genre-defining album, but they just haven't done it yet.
the MC clearly has a lot of talent and personality
the instrumentals are great at points
but a handful of tracks on this thing are as shitty as the good tracks are good
way too inconsistent to be above decent
honestly i think the chorus would have been so much more tolerable without the autotune. daveed has showed us, and im sure he knows his voice is perfectly fine, there was no need for the autotune
thats an interesting theory but it could make sense
if noise is hard for normies to listen to, then an autotune-soaked pop song is hard for people who like noise to listen to
its abrasive to people who like abrasive music
This and Midcoty showed they have amazing potential. I thought it was really good, but they can do better. It's a very accessible noise hip-hop album (I actually used Midcity to ease myself into Death Grips)
love the production, LOVE the production, but dont like daveed at all. the two are completely incongruent for me. his slick speedy flow just sounds silly compared to death grips
I felt like it tried way too hard at some points to be "experimental".
