"If Robin Scott read some of these past reviews, he would probably pass out from the intense irony of the situation...he puts out a cd with many very strong tracks on it, then has to read about how bad everything is because people are only familiar with the one song which is actually a parody of itself. To sum, if you only like songs that you've heard 1000 times on the radio/mtv, then you too will be disappointed in the rest of this CD. However, if you love synthpop like I do, this is one for your collection.
I would suggest people listen to this CD more than once thru before slamming the rest of the disc. Sadly, I see my daughter do the same thing with her music. She listens to the one track she has heard many times, completely ignores the rest of the CD, then says the rest is no good. Of course she is only 9...what is everyone else's excuse?"
Pop Muzik is beyond expectations!

"I first heard Pop Muzik when I was five years old. I was too young to know who the artist was so after years of searching, I finally got my hands on this wonderful compilation. The interesting thing is that I was fairly certain that since "M" was a one-hit-wonder, I would like "Pop Muzik" and "That's the way the money goes" (the only songs I ever saw turned in a video)and that the rest would be .... But, I got a real surprise when I discovered songs like "M factor" and "Satisfy your Lust", which have an incredible bass and catchy lyrics. All around, this is a great album, and a must have for fans of late 70's early 80's music. Robin Scott (whom I believe is English, not GERMAN!) brings a variety of styles into his music, which I think gives it that extra appeal and lure to anyone who just enjoys music, especially that which has a new twist."

"This was noteworthy at one time for being the only way you could get most of the album "New York London Paris Munich" on CD. The differences make it an interesting collectable; it omits the updated disco medley of "Moderne Man/Satisfy Your Lust", and presents both songs in their original format, when both tracks were split into a 7" single. It is an odd choice, since both of the songs are recorded in a style that owes more to glam rock than disco, and they sound at odds with the rest of the tracks. This isn't an album proper, however. It also contains the original B-side to "Pop Muzik", "M Factor", and this particular compilation remains the best way to own that track (the eventual issue of "New York London Paris Munich" on CD contained a wealth of bonus material, but the bonus tracks are all linked together and contain little fragments of one another at their beginnings and ends).
I don't really understand why another reviewer complained about the sound quality of this disc, because I never noticed anything bad about it. Now that "New York London Paris Munich" has been released in a more deluxe package, you may want to pick that version up instead of this one. However, diehards will want that version of "M Factor" with the proper intro."
