Pleasing people that enjoyed the extinguished art of albums with an actual theme, 'Exile' is a concept album of sorts, which partly justifies the monotonous but truly awesome drum loops that let the songs melt into each other and gives the album it's most distinctive trait.
Now, I say 'partly' because the repetitiveness of the album did get on my nerves in the end. It took some time though. The lyrics evolves around Numan's obvious grudge with 'God', the concept of 'blind faith' and its followers, as well as tearing down temples and other various sacrilegious activities. Sounds just lovely wouldn't you say?
And it perfectly fits the music. Although the production have improved it still sounds muddy, but it's not a big deal looking at the whole thing as this baby got atmosphere and plenty of it. The hypnotic rhythms coupled with ambient synth lines, bells and blistering guitars makes for quite some listening experience.

General Comment I believe this to be one of Numan's best in his later career. His voice is chilling amongst the almost supernatural atmospheres in the music.
I haven't really got an interperation but sonically, it's very scary. It could half be religion, half revenge. The meaning to me is in the way you feel when you hear it.Gary Numan Lyrics "Dark" I've been waiting here Waiting for faith And the word to fall. Now the darkness comes And I'll pray for The end of us all. Don't let the dark into me We killed the angels that warned us of you Don't let the dark into me We raised the tower of Babel for you album: "Exile" () Dominion Day. Prophecy. Dead Heaven.
