25th anniversary album! First pressing of 750 numbered copies on yellow vinyl. Includes 4 bonus tracks & a 4 page booklet. 

ex:el is the third studio album by 808 State, released in 1991. In contrast to the band's previous works, the album features heavier beats and percussion, embracing earlier flirtations with hip-hop and industrial music.

The album also features the guest vocals of Bernard Sumner of Joy Division and New Order fame, who sings on ''Spanish Heart''. In addition, Bjork sings on ''Qmart'' and ''Ooops'' and is credited with co-writing the two songs, establishing a partnership with 808 State's Graham Massey that would result in his working on many of her solo projects.

Add to all this two of the best techno singles from the early '90s,''In Yer Face,'' a subtly politicized anti-American slammer, and the almighty ''Cubik''; and ex:el stands out all the more strongly. A true masterpiece.
