Reviews:

"Now into their third decade as Holland's bravest avant-punk terrorists, the Ex seem incapable of slowing down... Rhythmically there are few who can touch the Ex, and Albini's hand lends these proceedings an especially scalpel-sharp wallop, allowing the band's now-trademarked taut, skittering trapwork, thrusting bass-encounter play and nicked-guitar screech to propel their cleverly refined political/social text with an irrepressible mix of dexterity and abrasiveness... Get in their way at your own risk."

"It's still hard to believe that a band formed more than 20 years ago are capable of releasing a new album that's both vital and worthy of the promise of their earlier material. But the Ex have defied the odds more than once... and now, with Dizzy Spells, the quintet may have topped it all. ... The Ex, like Lungfish and Fugazi, always sound immediate and fresh. ... As well-received as 1998's Starters Alternators (the band's Touch And Go debut) was, Dizzy Spells may prove to be even better. If nothing else, it's more tuneful, and yet The Ex have sacrificed nothing in the name of accessibility."
