This album really moves on from New York, London, Paris, Munich. Still cleverly crafted pop songs from Robin Scott, but with a much more adult slant - a bit more political, a bit more experimental, but still loads of fun and best played loud. (Let it be said though, that the "extra" CD tracks don't add to the original vinyl version.)

HASH(0x95457e70) out of 5 stars M's best 16 Oct. 2002
By A. G. Bailey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As stated elsewhere this is in effect a concept album delivering an ironic twist on the world of business and politics. I first discovered it in the sale rack at a store in Llandudno, North Wales, and being such a big fan of the single 'Pop Muzik' I bought it. It's probably Robin Scott's finest hour, and eminently danceable too, if you're an intelligent dancer! At first listen it all seems a bit odd but it's infectious and soon you too'll find yourself grooving to some unlikely subjects. My favourite track is probably 'Your country needs you'.

HASH(0x95bf05ac) out of 5 stars This may be the best concept album i've ever heard. 17 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
What if the KGB had put out an album to subliminally infect the minds of Western dance party patrons with Communist ideas and ideals? They did. And "Official Secrets Act" is the most infectuous dance beat you can imagine to contain delightfully pernicious idealogy.

HASH(0x958ef624) out of 5 stars "Pop Muzik" Grows Up 27 July 2002
By Kevin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought this record way back when it was first released. After listening to M's first disc "New York London Paris Munich", I was ready for some more "Pop Muzik" fun. I was disappointed when no song from this album struck me as good... but then again I was young and weaned on the radio pap that a lot of kids were (and still are) spoon-fed.
Today, I think this disc is great and it's about time the CD version was released. Starting with the atmospheric "Transmission" and moving through the bouncy "Working For The Corporation" and "Your Country Needs You", it's not until the last half of the album that you find the most commercial tracks "Keep It To Yourself" and "Official Secrets". You don't find many perfomers who save the best songs for last. But wait, this discs bonus tracks are more than just filler. "Don't Believe What The Papers Say" is great pulsing Europop (but way too short) and "The Bridge of Fortune" is so good it should've been included on the original release. The disc has full-color artwork and the booklet is faithful to the original album graphics, containing lyrics to all songs except the bonus tracks.
All in all, this is a great re-release at a great import price.

HASH(0x954cec18) out of 5 stars A Winner For Fans of Smart Synth-Pop 7 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Robin Scott/M isn't afraid of bringing intelligence and humor to his synth-pop sounds. Songs like "Join The Party", "Working For the Corporation" and "Your Country Needs You" make sharp social satire with plenty of catchy hooks. You don't have to leave your brain at the door if you want to move your feet. (If only another "smart and catchy" band from the 80s, The Gleaming Spires, would get released on CD...)

HASH(0x95b5b4f0) out of 5 stars Underrated 19 Sept. 2011
By Cyprian Pesce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The artist Robin Scott-aka 'M'...is a very talented music maker who, in a more just world, would have been more than a 'one-hit wonder'...The Official Secrets Act is a dark, funny and musically brilliant look at the world of politics and wars...just a great disc.
Props to you Mr. Scott...or, should I say...M.
