    Music that matters. Brilliant and powerful. I don't think I need to say more than that, but for the 150 words minimum limit I'll keep rambling.......

    Catch My Shoe shares some 21st century dissent with new albums from Wire and Gang of Four, but the Ex's continual flow of ideas and collaborations has kept its members in forward motion, where their UK counterparts are coming back to the fire after smelling the smoke.

    It's tempting to consider The Ex as Holland's The Fall, but that wouldn't be quite right--de Boer's pronouncements lack the gnomic bite of Mark E Smith. But these free thinkers are still taking more risks than Salford's finest have considered in years. [Dec 2010, p.46]

    This quartet's latest work still bellows in and out with the urgency of a boxer's lungs, and new singer Arnold de Boer maintains a strident edge while adding a barely perceptible undercurrent of lightness. Missing is the low end. [Feb 2011, p.87]
