Having a collection of Numan music that spans from studio albums to 12" mixes I can safely say that Numan tends to work best with songs that are short and sweet. He's an incredible musician but when it comes to extended mixes what you hear is usually a big clip of looped music thrown in somewhere in the middle of a song and that's about it.
Anyone who's familiar with this album, along with most of Numan's recent work, will understand that his production values have gone from minimal new wave to very heavy industrial affairs; sometimes it works, sometimes not so well, but with the Exile album that heavy foreboding sound is strong and focused, and these remixes deepen the various dark moods of thesongs; it's like if the original Exile were a catastrophic crater this would be the touring of the impact.
The only track I can say doesn't work extended is Dominion Day, but for the life of me I really can't get into that song at all anyway. So, if you have had trouble listening to other extended edits of Numan's songs, like the awful long versions of 'We Take Mystery' or 'Machine And Soul', or just want a valuable piece of Numan's work in your library, you might want to give this one a chance.
One person found this helpful. Much of the music seems initially repetitive and artificial, all of which seems to float in a reverberant space. The sound is indeed muddy. Nevertheless, the effect is ultimately hypnotic, spell-binding, and that is why I like the extended version so much. The theme appears to be anti-religious, but there is not a little ambiguity here. There is no need to parse the lyrics too deeply. Apocalyptic visual and sonic images from Christianity are emphasized: darkness, death, screams.
The promise of salvation is obviously viewed as cynically manipulative, of which children are the victims. Narrated in the first person, we are left again with the impression that religion is cruel and oppressive. The first two songs, it might be noted, also have great rhythm, and "Dead Heaven" is even better.
The heresy is ramped up yet another level, and even as a rather recalcitrant atheist, I find Numan's attack shocking: "Blessed is death in 'his' name.
But man, it rocks! The theme is of fear: "Don't let the dark into me. The narrator commands that he be prayed to. Numan could be said to be playing with the idea that he is the anti-Christ. The album followed a loose concept namely that, rather than being opposites, God and the Devil were two sides of the same coin. Each track reflected some aspect of this premise. Shortly after the album's release, Numan explained: "Personally, I don't believe in God at all, but if I'm wrong and there is a God, what kind of god would it be who would give us the world we live in?
The tale was set against a wall of synthesizers , drum loops and distorted guitars. The website www. The US edition of Exile included one extra track, a live recording of " Down in the Park ", previously released on the double album Ghost ; Numan, who did not approve its inclusion, presumed that his record label did it to link him to Marilyn Manson and other artists who had recently covered the song.
