One of the leading lights in British dance scene of the early 1990s, 808 State is operating at peak form on EX:EL. Not only does the album feature two of the group's signature tunes--the club anthems "In Yer Face" and "Cubik"--it also presents fine collaborations with Bernard Sumner of New Order (the pulsing "Spanish Heart") and Bjork (most notably the dreamy "Ooops"), who would develop a fruitful relationship with 808's Graham Massey in subsequent years. The 2008 reissue of EX:EL includes a bonus disc loaded with remixes.
