Napalm Death - Utilitarian

Another album that is a fine piece of work, yet kind of underwhelming to me. The last three albums by Napalm are classics in my opinion, but this one just seems like it's kind of going through the motions at times. Although the stuff they do with John Zorn here is pretty cool and atypical of most grind nowadays, it doesn't really connect with the rest of the album. The intensity and brutality is still there, but underneath a subdued approach that ultimately did more harm than good. Still the godfathers, though!

Standout tracks: Everyday Pox, The Wolf I Feed, Opposites Repellant
