"The Ex, one of truly the best live bands EVER, explodes on this CD, which is both a great departure from their own work and an expansion of their urgent, suspenseful, driving sound. With 20 musicians at their disposal, the work is like John Williams scoring and conducting Ex songs played by a marching band, huge, chaotically rhythmic but pitched forward w/ clarity. Weird chanting and whispering in the corners only adds to the mystery, while horns and drums reveal everything. If it's possible, this is 10x better than their records with Tom Cora from a number of years ago. "Een Rondje Holland" is a New Orleans street band meeting up with poetry, punk, Eastern- European folk and orchestral jazz: mournful and powerful, angry and crashing. One of the records of the year, in my book."
