I dislike Exciter's sleepy vibe a lot, so the fact it's more upbeat is good to hear. Skimming through the tracks, I hear hints of VCMG, which I enjoyed far more than Sounds of the Universe, which I was lukewarm on. It's weird, I enjoyed Hourglass and VCMG more than the last two Depeche albums.
Unfortunately, I don't except to get a chance to give it a full listen to Delta for another few days.
Violator is a safe bet. It's their most commercially successful album and you probably already know a handful of songs from it. I personnaly suggest to my friends to listen to "The Singles 86-98" compilation, make note of what their favorite songs are and then see how many are from the same album. Then, pick that respective album up.
