    It’s an altogether different beast: a gigantic, wondrous thing to get lost in.

    The sounds are by turns troubled, angry, isolated, and wonder-struck in ways that only Hawtin can sound, and Ex adds another mysterious chapter to the Plastikman story.

    EX is flawed yet enjoyable. [Aug 2014, p.56]

    It’s better to conceive of Ex holistically, rather than as seven individual tracks—in part because the album's distinct parts tend to blend into one another, with little to differentiate them.

    Ironically, listening to most of EX feels like watching a film with the sound turned off.

    EX is not awful, but it’s certainly not good either.
