" 5.0 out of 5 stars: Transcendent Synth, April 9, 2005 "
The absolute apotheosis of 80s synthesizer music. One of my favorite and most-listened-to albums by anyone, ever. Atmospheric, expansive, compelling. Redoubtable, riveting; full of miraculous chordal progressions which almost seem to defy logic, gravity, and all previous musical exploration. Sounds crazy? Nope, it's really that good. A work of undisputed genius.
Propaganda never again reached this peak ...But then neither did anyone else.
Miss "A Secret Wish" at your peril!
The Last Great Post-Punk Album Before the Decline of the Mid

"The acme of the ZTT aesthetic. This is the last great album synthesizer album of the 80s. Each orchestral, cinematic track represents the peak of dark technopop experience. Has there ever been a more thrilling track than the hellish "Dr. Mabuse?" Claudia Brucken's Teutonic croon remains a most deliciously curdled cream. Music maven Michael Mertens was a percussionist with the Dusseldorf Symphony and Ralf Dorper knew a thing or two about dark electronics from his time in Die Krupps. "Duel" was accurately described as "Abba In Hell" and by George, it was a wonderful thing indeed. Hear this album and wonder where it all went wrong afterwards. What I wouldn't give to hear grandiose and ornate music such as this again! Even Trevor Horn never surpassed his production of "Dr. Mabuse.""
