Year of the Snitch is Death Grips' sixth album, released on June 22nd, 2018, as a follow up to their 2016 release Bottomless Pit. The group first announced they were working on a new album on May 22, 2017, when they released the Steroids (Crouching Tiger Hidden Gabber) mix.

Of course, like every Death Grips album, Year of the Snitch is about 10 minutes too long. Much like 2016’s Bottomless Pit, this album isn’t a significantly weaker work than The Money Store or NO LOVE DEEP WEB, but as with everything Death Grips, context matters
Year of the Snitch is OUT NOW. YouTube this site Apple Music. Year of the Snitch is fantastic. Certainly not perfect, but still a wildly entertaining listening experience. It has a strangely hypnotic feel to it, almost as if it’s the maximalist version of Government Plates. There are so many fascinating production tricks on this album, like on The Fear and Flies. I love the random sampling on every track that work so well with the feel of the rest of the album. The album touches on more genres than any Death Grips project beforehand (including the hyper-intense electronica of Steroids on Disappointed), and does so while having a consistent feeling of vile grossness. I feel like I need to take a shower while listening to this, which is definitely not a bad thing.
Overall, Year of the Snitch feels like a personal experiment for Death Grips, but tilting towards a more mainstream sound.

Death Grips have not lost it yet. This is Death Grips most diverse album yet in my opinion, with a smorgasbord of different sounds. Many tracks on here take inspiration from different genres of music, with a Death Grips spin on them; such as rave music, arena-rock, punk-rock, jazz-rock, more traditional hip-hop, and probably more I couldn't pin-point myself. With all these sounds, Death.

Year Of The Snitch (Cass, Album, Red). Third Worlds, Harvest. The album is so poorly mastered, every track is full of clipping and compression. It is totally distracting and a real shame, because underneath the mess is an obvious great album that is unfortunately distracting and unpleasant to endure due to the mastering. Hopefully some to-come issue resolves this, but it seems unlikely. Reply See 2 replies Notify me Helpful.
