referencing Exciter, CD, Album, CDSTUMM190
As a massive DM fan, I've never fallen in love with Exciter. And it's kinda just dawned on me, 18 years later, as to why.

Back in 2001, I was 22 years of age. I had grown up with DM, especially during my teenage years where I became obsessed with the band and bought all their albums.

As a 22-year-old, I loved contemporary music as well as the 80's bands I grew up enjoying. So I was a big fan of brand new acts such as Ladytron.

Anyone who's heard early Ladytron can tell you, they were heavily influenced by the early 80's UK synth-pop sound. Not just Depeche Mode, but The Human League etc.

So, after following Depeche Mode for what felt like a lifetime (all the way up to the redemptive Ultra), I guess I was expecting DM to embrace this new youthful interest in the early 80's synth pop sound.

Instead, we got Exciter. The polar opposite of what bands like Ladytron were doing (obviously, in retrospect, Martin was never going to make a Vince Clarke sounding album).

But time has not altered my perception. I've tried listening to Exciter again, even as recently as a few months ago. But I really can't find much pleasure in it. It just drags along, it's impossible to get excited when a song ends and you know what's coming next (think of A Question Of Time leading into Stripped).

Ironically, my favourite track on this album is the appropriately titled "Comatose".

My copy has some noise that shows up during the second half of The Sweetest Condition, as well as a prominent 'pop' that goes through all of Easy Tiger and in to the first seconds of the next track... Anyone else come across this issue?

Other than those unfortunate noise issues, the record sounds good to me - full and wide - will bang it out on a big system eventually and report back...

Amazing pressing of this great and underrated album by Depeche Mode. If you are looking for a song to test your sub, try Shine...and if does not Shine (!), you need new speakers!

The "Additional Tracks" are only recorded in stereo LPCM 48kHz 24bit 2Ch.
They sound downsampled including CD audio.

The quality of the pressing is a rarity nowadays. It's sound just perfect!

This album was disappointing and i was not a fan at that time when it came out
However the remixed version of FREELOVE was awesome and i bought the cd and became fan since then.

The album is lame and i dont like the electronic tone of the album. Boring

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.
