5 stars Together with "Hoodoo Man" this album marks the peak in the career of the german Krautrock-pioneers BirthControl. THIS IS HIGH-CLASS-PROGRESSIVE ROCK, without any filler on the album. Each track has specific characteristics: First of all, we have the organ-dominated opening number "She´s got nothing on you", that reminds me of Deep Purple, then the trumpet&trombone on "Mr. Hero", played by multiinstrumentalist Zeus B. Held, contributing to a fuller (jazz-oriented) sound. This jazzrock-style returns on "No Shade Is Real". The acoustic "Grandjeanville" and the Zeus B. Held "mini"-instrumental "M.P.C." give even more relief to REBIRTH, but with "Together Alone Tonight" we have not only reached the highlight of this album, but the finest piece of music by BirthControl -according to my opinion- even greater than "Gamma Ray". The closing number "Back To Hell" shows drummer Bernd Noske at its best, his drum solo decorated with well-placed synthie-effects. After all, what other rating should be possible than 5 stars!
