EXCITER

THE LAST CLASSIC MODE ALBUM? IT’S FAIR TO SAY THAT EXCITER DOESN’T SIT IN MANY A DEPECHE MODE FAN’S TOP FIVE ALBUMS, BUT WE THINK IT DESERVES REAPPRAISAL AND THAT IN YEARS TO COME IT COULD WELL BE SEEN AND HEARD AS THE LAST GREAT MODE ALBUM. CONTROVERSIAL? READ ON, AND DREAM ON…

True, Exciter hasn’t excited too many fan favourite lists over the years, but it is, we would argue, the last Mode album to have that unified feel that Violator and SOFAD demonstrated so successfully. It also managed to do both ‘dark’ and ‘uplifting‘ simultaneously, rewarding you with more depth and detail on every listen – all largely down to producer Mark Bell. Martin Gore was right about Bell’s ability to wrestle atmosphere from any situation, and Exciter was marked with many such excerpts of beauty. But as well as providing the darkness and light that maybe Flood and Wilder would have added on previous Depeche Mode albums, Bell gave Gahan some unexpected confidence.

About Classic Pop Presents

In our latest special edition 132-page magazine we explore the world of synth-pop pioneers Depeche Mode. We follow the band’s epic story – decade-by-decade – from their genesis in Basildon as synth-loving adolescents with Vince Clarke at the helm, through to the present day as a globally famous three-piece with over 100 million record sales under their belts. Classic Pop Presents turn the spotlight onto classic albums from every era of the group’s evolution including Speak & Spell, Black Celebration, Violator, Songs Of Faith And Devotion, Exciter and latest LP Spirit – plus, we go behind the scenes via exclusive interviews with Depeche’s Martin Gore and Dave Gahan, as well as producers Tim Simenon, Ben Hillier and James Ford. We also sit down with the two directors of pioneering tour film 101 to hear how they captured the reality of ‘Mode on the road’. Also inside, we deliver our definitive Top 40 Depeche Mode playlist as well as highlighting some lesser-spun gems; we survey the band’s videography and revisit their mammoth global tours through the years. Add to that our in-depth feature on Depeche’s many collaborators, our investigation into collectable vinyl from their back catalogue and much more besides – it’s an unmissable issue!
