4 stars This impotrant German hard/heavy/progressive rock band was formed in Berlin in 1968 and they started as a mainly instrumental jazz rock outfit.Despite some line-up changes they recorded four studio albums in four years' time:''Birth control'' (1970),''Operation'' (1971),''Hoodoo man'' (1972) and ''Rebirth'' (1973).In these album anyone can detect the changes of their sound,from the early jazz rock style to heavy prog rock.However,it's their 1975 release ''Plastic people'',which established them as a progressive rock band.This amazing album is a mix of heavy progressive music with krautrock,symphonic tendencies and jazzy doses.Keeping their well-known hard'n'heavy style BIRTH CONTROL added a lot of different elements in their music,making this album a must-have record!Numerous fantastic interplays,jazzy passages,great use of keyboards and a krautrock atmosphere with intense vocals are mixed with heavy rock to result a memorable release!Recommended for all fans of serious and really progressive music!
