Electronic/Dance - Released July 1, 1985 | ZTT Records

With guests including David Sylvian, Heaven 17's Glenn Gregory, and Steve Howe, A Secret Wish is synth-rock with an eye toward orchestrated pop as well as a bit of sampler experimentation in the grand ZTT tradition of Art of Noise. There's a distinct lack of songwriting on the album, and though the synth-grooves are tight enough to keep it flowing for most of its length, A Secret Wish occasionally falls flat from its own weight. © Keith Farley /TiVo

Electronic/Dance - Released June 1, 2002 | ZTT Records

As polished as A Secret Wish was, Propaganda could get edgy, dissonant, and downright freaky on their 12"s with the help of studio wizard and remixer Trevor Horn. Outside World collects some of the best and hardest-to-find mixes into one neat package. It's great for the hardcore, but new fans should not start here. Many of the different titles are actually just different mixes of the same song, with "Dr Mabuse" taking up 20 minutes of the CD alone in its varying shapes and forms. Fanatics should seek out the German version, which adds a DVD. © David Jeffries /TiVo

Electronic/Dance - Released June 1, 1985 | ZTT Records

In the '80s, remix records were usually either solipsistic synth noodling with very little appeal for the average listener or, worse still, crass commercial attempts to eek a few additional dollars from die hard fans. Propaganda was apparently prepared to answer accusations of that sort. The record jacket for Wishful Thinking, their 1985 collection of remixed "disturbdances" of songs from their debut, A Secret Wish, defends the remix concept with a quotation from Goethe: "and refashioning the fashioned/ lest it stiffen into iron/ is a work of endless vital activity." Somehow Wishful Thinking seems deserving of Goethe's defense. These remixes are vital and original creations in their own right. At times they even seem to surpass the quality of the original poppier versions. The driving dance beats, mesmerizing gothic chords, and swirling ambient guitars create a melancholic ethos of considerable artistic merit. Perhaps the key is the reduction in emphasis on the sometimes grating sing/shout vocals by Claudia Brucken and Susan Freytag. And though some mixes do begin to get dull when they are reduced to thumping bass and grinding drums, the vast majority of this project is more dynamic than that. © Evan Cater /TiVo

Rap/Hip-Hop - Released January 22, 2016 | Fair Trade - Columbia

Following his breakthrough 2012 release Excellent, respected Los Angeles rapper and poet Propaganda returns with Crimson Cord, an album of depth, strength, and intensity. Although he works under the banner of Christian hip-hop, his religious-backed messages are rarely overt, often letting ideas and concepts unfold through his own personal stories. Ever since his emergence with innovative rap collective the Tunnel Rats in 2002, he's managed to mix a crafty, poetic richness with his implied messages of faith. Since signing with Portland's Humble Beast Records, his collaborations with labelmates like Odd Thomas and Beautiful Eulogy (the latter of whom act as producers here) have been among his best work and the strong, thoughtful, and conscious Crimson Cord continues to up his game. Over a deft mix of electronic and acoustic beats, cool atmospheric synths, and piano he ruminates on his own history and follows threads of social commentary with a delivery that is both elegant and biting. Propaganda's unique personal style makes him the rare crossover artist who can deliver a strong message without alienating secular and non-religious fans. He's not preachy, but instead aims to inspire by simply producing good art. © Timothy Monger /TiVo
