4 stars How said the P A prog reviewer Mellotron Storm (review #221796 Posted Friday, June 19, 2009 ), BIRTHCONTROL "Plastic People" is really the firstīprogressive rock albun from this German band and in my humble opinion their discography count with only another progressive rock albun, the next albun "Backdoor Possibilities" and both are very good albuns , which are an amazing phenomenon... specially if you compare this two albuns with other albuns as for instance 'Operation" (1971), where is a Hard or Heavy-Prog clearly prominence, in DEEP PURPLE and URIAH HEEP's "vein". In "Plastic People" the band reach a high level in musicianship, making a captivating sound full of variations with a more symphonic and space-prog approach, starting from the overture of track 1 "Plastic People" which remember me bands such as GROBSCHINNIT and JANE with two very well defined parts (both very shorts) leading to the main theme also full of variations in melody and rhythm, mixing heavy,symphonic and space prog. The track 2 "Tiny flashlights" bring a full of swing song in the style of STEELY DAN and A "pinch" from ZAPPA. The other tracks from the album shows (each one ) very different themes, escaping from the traditional hard rock before presented by the band.. My rate is 4 stars !!!!
