The Fifth Utility - Misanthropolis
Laura Bond, Westword - Best Albums of 2001

Uncompromising and caustic, the Fifth Utility careens its way through a post-punk debut, brimming with an intelligence and a precision that border on diabolic. Misanthropolis uses strange time signatures, annoyed guitars and opaque words to make howling statements about urban isolation and artistic prefabrication. Roving and raging, the four members of the Fifth are our favorite new local misanthropes.
