  1. Zoo Psychology's refrains are faster, shorter, and more efficient than ever.
  2. Alternative Press
    Ex Models make the cleanest and most non-metal racket you're likely to find. [Jul 2003, p.113]
  3. Magnet
    It sounds like a war against music. [#60, p.97]
  4. Ex Models are not afraid of the gaps created by their minimal approach; they use the silence to contrast the unholy racket they can make.
  5. Zoo Psychology is gritty, and crazy, and at times, almost maddening.
  6. This is an odd album, weirdly compelling and madly frustrating.
  7. A very loud, very strange and playfully destructive album.
  8. Zoo Psychology is a phenomenal 20-minute experience, if only for its sheer insanity. The songs aren’t consistently strong enough for it to be remembered too long down the road, but it does make for a thrilling listen.
  9. Mojo
    Whether this leaves you head-scratching or dancing like an electrified monkey, it certainly won't bore you. [Jul 2003, p.109]
  10. This band is awfully good at being annoying.

    This album manages to make a bunch of annoying genres catchy. Too bad it's too good to be hip.
