Prog Reviewer
3 stars The title of this one might make you think of the Mothers of Invention, who opened Absolutely Free with a song of the same name, but Plastic People isn't Birth Control's take on Frank Zappa: instead, it occupies a sort of borderline between symphonic and space rock styles, of the sort which Eloy were also exploring at around this time. Zeus B. Held's keyboard playing is particularly prominent, and the album is a pleasant listen which will appeal to fans of the more symphonic and less Krautrock end of German prog, though a lack of really compelling and strong compositions means Birth Control don't hit the fourth star this time around.
Warthur | 3/5 |
