Anything even associated with the Ex...

"is worthy of 5 stars. I don't overwhemingly enjoy this album, but respect it nonetheless. I'd advise some of the other reviewers below to do a little more homework and understand what the Ex has meant to socio-political music over the last 20 years...not to mention their contribution in merging punk/jazz and improvisational styles and some of the most amazing polyrhythmic drumming and rhythms I have ever heard and/or seen.Sad that this site only offers a few Ex recordings, when I myself have around 20. Please, to those who appreciate real music with a human message and performers who actually "practice what they preach", seek out the Ex and all of their side projects (Kletka Red, etc.). You won't regret it.And please don't forget that Tortoise invited the Ex to join them for these sessions--they obviously understand what so many of us know..."

"No, you shouldn't expect anything like TNT, not with The Ex in the house. This collaboration works exceedingly well. You get Tortoise's little world of evocative sound and rhythm as a context for the avant punk bang of The Ex. Challenging yes, but fun and interesting. A great listen. Add to cart."
Now what did you expect?

"Yeah, what DID you expect? Well, I didn't exactly expect this, but i can't say I was disappointed or wanted my money back. No, this isn't 'Millions Now Living...' nor 'TNT' but it's cool. It might surprise you a bit more then you expected, but listen to it. Don't buy it without listening to it even if O'Rourke is your dad."
