In my opinion this album marks the maturation of 808 State. Moving from the gorgeous rawness of their early work, Ex:El represents a movement into electronic lushness. Colourful sounds and well worked complex musical design.
Bjork works with them on 'Q-mart', brilliant strings and Icelandic guttural fusion, and 'Ooops'. Bernard Sumner of New Order fame makes an appearance on 'Spanish Heart'. Haunting melodies, funkflexity, unusual dance gravity.
