Prog Reviewer
4 stars On Backdoor Possibilities from 1976 Birth Control explores little bit further on their sound coming with some jazzier elements in their symphonic/heavy prog atmosphere. This is an extravagant album, musicaly speaking, lots of instrumental passages, very well performed, some of them even brilliant like on The farrockaway ropedancer. Some parts has more proeminent keyboards passages then before and have a certain GentleGiant breeze in arrangements, but very nice in the end like on Behind gray walls or No Time To Die. The album overall is dynamic, very good musicianship and is pretty ok in my book, no weak moments and I think is equaly great as Plastic people that why I give 4 stars. Another of Birth Control overlooked albums from their most ambitious period in prog rock realm.
