Format: Audio CD
The cd is a great disappointment. ALL the songs are quite slow. And as a warning, when the song "Dream On" was on the radio, this song won't be the same version that is on the CD. The CD version of this song is horrible and does not have the same fast-paced beat. Because of this album i will never buy another Depeche Mode cd again. Stick with Violator and remember the "memories" of when Depeche Mode was actually a good band.

Like most things in life Music is about taste, expecting that a Band will repeat the same formula over and over is missing the point of creativity, The work in Exiter is superb, I'm not one that will put one album over another, the whole body of work of Depeche Mode is what they delivered at that moment in time, I do have my own taste and I do find myself listening to some albums more than other, Exiter is one of them together with Ultra, Songs of Faith and Devotion and Violator, they just happen to strike a chord in me stronger than the rest of their work, the remaining plays as well but not in heavy rotation, but I don't consider them to be of lesser importance and or quality, Get the remastered 2007 Exiter, listen to it in a GOOD stereo, good speakers or headphones, and you will find yourself listening to Exiter over and over again.

It hurts me to do this, really, because I've forever loved DM and they got me through my teen years intact. I've loved Depeche even when it wasn't cool to do so (remember techno? blagh!).
But this album is nothing more than a forced and rushed affair. Probably to fund Dave's extra-curricular activities? Who knows.
The songs are very poor and uninspired. A couple even make me really cringe. But I give it 3 stars for "I Am You." (b/c to *ever* give Depeche Mode any less would just not feel right to me) "I Am You" is the one shining moment!
I was a little bitter w/ Depeche after this release, but all is forgiven with "Playing the Angel." It's the Depeche I love again :O)

I have mixed feelings about this album. I mean, the lyrics are there, the songs are great, the melodies are Depeche Mode through and through, while Dave delivers a wonderful vocal performance. Still, there's this little catch.
I have all Depeche Mode albums, and Exciter is the only one that took quite some time to really grow on me. I think the problem lies in what a previous reviewer mentioned: the repetition of an assortment of clicks and little noises that, to me, can be a bit grating at times. The tracks - with a few exceptions - start to sound more or less the same sooner or later. Don't get me wrong: the songs are truly great, they grow on you; the problem is that I am not totally comfortable with the arrangements chosen to accompany the lyrics and the melodies, and this detracts a bit from my overall enjoyment of Exciter.
Bottom line: Exciter is certainly not my favorite Depeche Mode album, but I like it fine (although it took longer to grow on me than previous DM albums). I also don't think it is a step backwards for Depeche Mode. It is perfect for a quiet, relaxing listen. I am only a little uncomfortable with the arrangements, but the rest is top-notch, as usual with DM.

If depeche mode ever would do a greatest hits collection with let's say twenty songs they would get at least
three of them from this one.I'm talking about "When the body speaks",
"Dream on", freelove and maybe another one.
"When the body speaks" is one of the most beutiful songs ever made, with a real sence of nearness to it with the heartbeat like drum pattern."Dream on" is a worthy little brother to "Enjoy the silence" and "freelove" have only one downside to it, the incredebly chessy lyrics - "No hide and catsh no strings attached just freelove" But overall a great song.
Overall this album has a strange mix in it's sound between the atmosfaric "I am you" and the country felling in"Breathe". That's not really a big problem but they don't really get it 100% together in this final mix in blending the songs up with one and other. My overall impression of this one is, great songs but not used to their full potentiall. Looking forward to what i've heard's gonna be the bands final album this year.../A

People have to realize that romantically dark Depeche Mode of the 80s, teenagers' darlings of "Violator" period, and uneasy sounding Depeche Mode of today are 3 entirely different bands. Part of it must have something to do with the band leaders becoming clean of substance abuse. This important move always impacts the music in some way or another, and Depeche Mode is not an exception.
The sad truth is, "Exciter" is inferior to such timeless classics as "Violator" or "Music for the Masses". It doesn't even reach the high mark set by "Ultra". However, it's quite an enjoyable album with several very strong songs. Its production is different from anything the band has released before. It's very guitar-oriented and contains plenty of industrial clicks and noises. David Gahan's voice also has a different sound, not so sensual as in the 80s. Though mellow sounding, this album also develops some subconscious uneasy feeling of tension, which is due to the guitar-playing style and the background clicks. It works very well in a number of songs, but fails to produce a credible result in some other. I also got the feeling that the band tried to create an illusionary 3-dimensional soundscape of various noises, guitar string sounds and percussion. It works best in "Shine", but this effect is present in all the songs. However, you need a high-quality stereo-system in order to fully appreciate the effect.
To me, this album's feel is very introspective and intimate. Several songs are written with no drums or percussion at all. Even the harder tracks "Dream On" and "The Dead of Night" aren't aggressive.
