5.0 out of 5 stars Liked "A Secret Wish"? Then get this too!
Cruelly overlooked when they were actively making music back in the mid-80s, arty German synthpop group Propapganda are finally getting the attention they deserve. This remix album was the last proper release by the classic line-up (which included the distinctive vocals of Claudia Brucken and Suzanne Freytag) and puts a strangely modern spin on songs from their debut LP...

2.0 out of 5 stars The aptly named album
Generally speaking, I’m a fan of remix albums. “Wishful Thinking” however is the exception to the rule. From the opening bars of "Abuse" the CD promises much and delivers little. The deconstruction of the superb "Dr Mabuse" is the opening track and on hearing the piano bass chords and sampled strings, a feeling of excitement starts to build. You...

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Eighties !, 24 Jan. 2002
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wishful Thinking (Audio CD)
If you have the original "Secret Wish" album, this is a definite must have remix album. It's a complex synthesizer landscape that also quite entertaining all the way through!
This CD features an inlay that features some history about the band and about the CD.
Note: the track called "Jewelled" is a remix of "Duel" was used as the theme music of the BBC's Rally Report programme.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as I remember, 23 Mar. 2013

Replacing, or rather adding to the original vinyl, which is still good and sometimes better with a crackle! That's it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Wished!, 16 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wishful Thinking (Audio CD)
I was so pleased to see that this had finally been released on CD! This has been one of my prize possessions on vinyl since its original release and often encouraged me to create a vinyl listening room (which never lasts) mainly due to Jewelled which so deftly combines Jewel and Duel (try saying that quickly!). Wishful Thinking is a remixalbum as discussed by Ian Peel in the accompanying booklet. It stands up in its own right as separate entity to A Secret Wish, the album from which the tracks are culled. The extra tracks are great, especially as five are previously unreleased. In the same way as the original vinyl release served as the perfect accompaniment to the original release of A Secret Wish, this serves as the perfect accompaniment to the two disc deluxe edition of A Secret Wish released recently. All you need to (almost) completely sate your appetite for Propaganda is Outside World.
