This is actually Robin Scott's 1979 album New York-London-Paris-Munich , which Collectables has re-named Pop Muzik to give it more hit power. That's the album version of Pop Muzik , by the way, along with other new wave/bubblegum confections like Unite Your Nation and Moonlight and Muzak . Out of print for years!

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?
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 dregs 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 the then up and coming new wave movement. Robin Scott (whom other posts stated is German, hes actually English) brings a variety of styles into his music, making this a very eclectic album and featuring samples of disco, punk, new wave and all around creativity of the late 70's early 80's music scene.
This album is probably the best aural experience you will ever have. When I was a kid, I played this until the needle went dull. 26 years later it's still the best.
