So what of A Secret Wish itself, the Brother Ah And The Sounds Of Awareness Key To Nowhere we're all here? Its heart of darkness is 'Dr. Mabuse', of course, a vast canvas across which they throw dark, sinister shadows. Then there's 'p:Machinery', its initial Atari effects obliterated by a jackhammer beat and Satanic voices booming out the chant, "Power!
Its bleak outlook is somewhat offset by outbreaks of brass that perhaps only really sounded authentic when we were all blinded by science, but it's still a tour de force, massive, intimidating, especially in the belligerent bridge and the almighty drop that precedes the outro, a moment of almost intolerable tension.
But the unexpected return of the piano, and a virtuoso performance that somehow recalls Jools Holland's appearance on The The's 'Uncertain Smile' add some fun - a quality one doesn't often equate with Propaganda.
Her 'Denglisch' adds to the confusion, hinting at times that she's not entirely sure of the meaning of her lyrics, Propaganda A Secret Wish some automated replicant, something further underlined when her vocal is sped up as though she's malfunctioning. But when that massive keyboard line arrives towards the song's end, and the donner und blitzen rumble in the background, there's no doubt that Propaganda A Secret Wish is a purely human drama, even if it is inspired by fears for our increasingly industrialised society.
In addition, there's 'Frozen Faces', whose second half could twinkle on a million chillout compilations, and 'The Chase', which, after an unsettling start, shifts into the kind of pop that Talk Talk might have come up with before they decided it was more fun in the Propaganda A Secret Wish than on the stage.
This still refuses to let us off entirely, however, closing with another sinister marshalling of jackhammer beats. And of course there's the cover of Josef K's awkward 'Sorry For Laughing', an idea so warped as to be inspired though the bonus 'Unapologetic 12"' mix, all ten minutes of it, reveal the song's Scottish roots a little more clearly with a jangling guitar upfront.
Finally there's 'The Last Word', whose keys — Daft Punk as much as Georgio Moroder — eventually give way to another round of stormy sound effects later, one suspects, employed by Lipson and Horn on Propaganda A Secret Wish Jones' 'Slave To The Rhythm'a last round of orchestral flourishes and Freytag's poignant parting query: "Is all that we see or seem but a dream within Groupe Berbere Agraw ZO dream?
You'll need to skip to the end of Disc One to hear 'The Last Dance' in its purest form: Lipson's CD mix chooses instead to force the listener to endure the majestic conclusion to 'Dr.
Mabuse' segued into a Stars On 45 album megamix before finally giving way to the album's closer.
