Exciter finds the trio again balancing pop catchiness with experimental depths. As with Ultra, an outside producer helps focus the end results in new, intriguing directions - in this case, said producer is Mark Bell, known for his work with Björk. Bells ear for minimal, crisp beats and quick, subtle arrangements and changes suit Martin Gores songs beautifully. David Gahans voice, already audibly benefiting from lessons on Ultra, is even more supple and passionate than before, ranging from the fuller delivery on the snaky charm of *Shine* to the haunting album-closer, *Goodnight Lovers*. Pressing on 180 gram audiophile double vinyl, housed in a gatefold sleeve with 4-page insert.
