Rating: 8 Very nice album. If you like the more recent ND albums like Smear Campaign, Time Waits etc. You will like this.

Rating: 7 Listening to it right now (almost done so i figure i can post about it). I really liked it. The first three tracks are a bit boring, but overall really kick ass.

Found it better than the last two tbh and I really like those. Would give it a strong 8.

I liked the last two as well, I also liked this one, but I didn't love it, so 7 was what I gave it. Great, but nothing special.

I don't "love" it either, I just think it's a pretty damn strong release I use the L word for higher ratings mostof the time.

  After only one listen it's an 7.5 for me.

I gave it a 10 because I am amazed that at their ages they can still put out something solid. To me this album is a strong culmination of everything they have ever done; its got total signature Napalm grind elements mixed in with some more interesting melodic components that they have hinted at with the last couple albums but really broke out with it more on this album. I thought the song structures were really coherent and alot of fun. It's just great to see that a band like Napalm can still sound very much like themseleves, yet bring something fresh to the table. Not sure if anyone else sees this in a similar light, but I think its a very strong demonstration of how they stand today.

While I wouldn't give it a 10 I agree with the content of your post. I mean... This band is friggin 30 years old and they still make such strong albumsand give the younger bands that are supposed to have more energy a run for their money.

Rating: 9 I have only listened once and maybe i am a bit biased having all the Napalm Death albums but i give it 9 out the gate ... May be that my day at work sucked balls and the grind put me back in a better mood... But it fucking kicked my eardrums ass....

They're the Iron Maiden of Grindcore, and I did enjoy this release very much.

What? Are you nuts? You spelt Metallica wrong. Final Frontier was very great IMO.

Nope, I write it just right, bands like Iron Maiden and Metallica could just die now if I were to decide
Napalm Death on the other hand, while not being original anymore... They are always as strong (at least in the last 4 albums) as the newest grindcore band around an are still relevant to the scene.

Rating: 9 This album took me by surprise! I swear never to lower my expectations for ND again!

Rating: 8 Better than I remember. As the Lemon says it's much better after the first 3 tracks.

Rating: 9 After Napalm Death's collaboration with Anneke Van Giersbergen on "Smear Campaign" I thought that they would never be able to surprise me anymore, but... They did just that by having John Zorn play on this album (even if he contributed only to one song). Besides there are plenty of clean vocal parts, which also sounds a bit unusual, but interesting.
All in all, I think that Utilitarian serves to prove that Napalm Death is still on the top of the grindcore scene.

Rating: 7 My first ND album, I expected more but not bad, maybe i should try some old stuff

Rating: 8 Almost as good as TWFNS, it's definitely on par with the more recent releases, and some good experimentation as well.
