AllMusic 3/5 stars[1]

Exit is the sixteenth album by the German group Tangerine Dream.[2] The first track features an uncredited Berlin actress[3] chanting, in Russian, the names of the continents of the world and pleading to end the threat of "limited" nuclear war,[4][5] which was a potential danger facing the world during the late Cold War era in which the album was released. Exit reached No.43 in the UK, spending 5 weeks on the chart.

The track "Choronzon" is used as the title theme for the Hungarian political TV show, Panoráma. "Network 23" was used in the early 1980s by the TVA network in Montreal (Canada) to promote their news service. "Remote Viewing" appears in the 2008 video game, Grand Theft Auto IV, featured on the ambient radio station The Journey. The title track is featured in the sixth episode of the Netflix series Stranger Things [6], and a remixed excerpt, entitled "No Future (Get Off The Babysitter)" was featured on the 1984 soundtrack album for the film Risky Business.
