This is where their exploitation of "Violator" riffs truly began to drag. Although "Exciter" is no less than good an album, a brave step away from the rock-ish sound firmly established in "Songs of Faith and Devotion" and "Ultra", a milestone record each.

As a whole, however, "Exciter" don't really gel - the presence of Mark Bell handling production duties saves a great deal giving Depeche a breath of fresh calm but the predominantly ear-pleasant, smooth, pulsating night music vibe still don't save it from relying on clichés; the opener "Dream On" and "The Sweetest Condition" - the latter being the obvious, and rather weak rewrite of "The Sweetest Perfection"). "Breathe" is also a bore - musically nice but lyrically not far from "The Things You Said" if you listen closely. "I Feel Loved" is an obvious choice for one of the album's singles but again, something about it, be it the lyrics or the thinness of the song affect it from being the dance floor killer track it should have been. The most unbearable song here is "The Dead of Night" - deceptively rough and appealing on first listen (again, a slight rewrite of "I Feel You", echoing some of Primal Scream) but generally a tweak-and-twirl dirge that desperately tries to sound kinky.

The common theme being that of "love" is understandable after the turmoil the band have been through previously, but re-appearing in the songs' titles/lyrics pushed Depeche further down the pathos, keeping them forever stuck in their lamenting/spiritual comfort zone ("Playing the Angel", "Sounds Of the Universe", "Delta Machine" and "Spirit" all suffer in various tempos for the very same reason).

If somebody ever asks me what is the definition of "underrated" record, I'll point to Exciter. Fans are loving it or hating it, there's no ambivalent "in between" when it comes to this album, and I have to say I love it to bits. Cooperation with Mark Bell ended up as you would expect - raw, minimalistic and full of soul at the same time. Pressing quality of this release is also perfect.

While not my favorite of theirs, I do love this album and my pressing is flawless! Some of their best songs including "Dream On, " "I Feel Love," and the powerful and dark "I Am You." Some of the reason it sounds so good is that it's split onto 2LPs so the grooves aren't all compressed into two sides.

This copy does not sound as good as the original. There is a low hum heard between tracks on both sides.

This is a beautiful pressing! The 2014 Music On Vinyl version, which I bought first, is cut from the same stampers but the background is a little noisier - I bought this "original" repress to compare and it sounds a lot cleaner, though it's only because the album is so minimal that it's noticeable. I've not heard the 2001 original, but this is a deep, full, bright mastering job with no distortion even at the ends of sides.* As with all the 2007 remasters, the packaging is luxurious, in a thick, glossy gatefold with heavy duty glossy inners. The vinyl is weighty and, as I said, silent when it should be. Definitely recommended. Wonder why they redesigned the back cover though?

*edit: except for the slightly overdriven I Feel Loved and I Am You, which really leap out of the speakers but have a bit of distorted sibilance on the verse vocals

Depeche Mode’s 2001 release, Exciter, would lead you to believe that there is something to get excited about—there is NOT! This album is a big snore—I found it very boring. Exciter is Depeche Mode’s tenth studio album. The album was produced by Mark Bell of Björk and LFO fame. The album also launched the Exciter Tour, one of the band's most successful tours. Exciter debuted at number nine on the UK Albums Chart and at number eight on the Billboard 200, selling 115,000 copies in its first week in the US. Exciter was certified gold in the US on August 15th 2001. I can see no clear reason for this success—I think it was an example of “The Emperor’s New Clothes”. I have previously said that I love anything that Depeche Mode does—I retract! I have heard it said that the Stones never made a decent album after they got cleaned up. I’m not sure I necessarily agree with that, but sobriety certainly hasn’t seemed to do much for Depeche Mode. Ultra was a bit lack-luster and Exciter is much worse. I’m not quite as harsh as <SecretRecords> but I’m in general agreement. I almost don’t care that this is such a lousy (noisy) pressing. I’m glad to add Exciter to my collection of Depeche Mode on vinyl, which I intend to be complete, but I doubt I will ever play it again.

This double album came in a beautiful gatefold jacket and was pressed on 180g vinyl. The album was decently produced (Mark Bell) and mastered (Mike Marsh) but there were some serious problems with the pressing (WEA Mfg. Commerce). Unfortunately my copy, even after repeated cleanings, was very noisy and has a lot of crackle on side A. This is somewhat compensated for by the recording having an unusually strong signal level (+0.75 dB) which improves the signal-to-noise ratio. The other sides of the album (B, C & D) were much quieter, with a lot less surface noise, clicks or pops.

I gave this album 2 out of 5 stars, and then only because it’s Depeche Mode.

Terribly noisy pressing. Try to find an original. This one sucks.

This and Ultra are easily the worst DM records. Avoid them. Unless you like generic soulless club music. Then enjoy! I'll stick with Violator and Playing The Angel.

One of the best DM albums. Great sounds, great lyrics, strong songs, how'd they do that production... and the habitual WTF song (or two)... Bit of this, bit of that, but over all a proper ELECTRONIC album from DM. Surround sound disk is super fine in its clarity, this albums made for hearing in 5.1.
