4 stars From the first sounds of Stop Little Lady I knew it would be something exciting. Birth Control on Operation mix hard rock with amazing sound of hammond organ. Some say it's nothing new cos Deep Purple were doing the same. Ok but if you find me on DP albums such great song like Just Before The Sun Will Rise I'll give you a point. This is definitely my favorite track on this release. Reinjhold Sobotta is brilliant. He plays almost same good as Keith Emerson. Ok it's just one style while Keith played at least 6 different ones but it's still amazing to hear such dynamic and exciting music from band that some labelled krautrock (still don't know why). Most of songs on this release are hard rockish tunes with exeption of closing 11 minutes long epic which is more subtle and closer to what progressive rock was at the time. If you like Deep Purple and Uriah Heep you should get this one. This German band did more than any other prog band from that country. They just played dynamic rock music. It won't put you to sleep my friend like most of krautrock stuff. It's good addition to any prog fan collection.
