5 stars How I've said in my review about the BIRTHCONTROL's previous album "Plastic People" in my opinion this German band releases only one another really progressive album in their career: "Backdoor Possibilities", and in spite of this album receives a lowest quotation , I consider this album much better than the other. The disk in itself shows a type of progressive music much more close from the prog mainstream from the 70's, going very far away from the frontiers of traditional krautrock music whose parameters still presents in "Plastic People" as for instance in tracks like track 4 "Rockin' rollin' roller" ( a hard rock piece of music with a "prog approach" ) or the track 6 "This song is just for you" ( a theme clearly related to the sound of bluesy bands like CHICAGO, BLOOD SWEAT & TEARS or even CLIMAX BLUES BAND). Although, in "Backdoor Possibilities" this kraut influences remains ... they are more diluted and are a more clear approximation with the English progressive scenery from the 70's , including elements from ecletic prog in GENTLE GIANT "vein" and also from symphonic prog bands such as , GENESIS, YES and even CAMEL..Besides, "Backdoor Possibilities" is full of another musical "landscapes" like in the track 3 "Subterranean Escape" the theme are developed and culminates by a Charleston's inspired melody .The track 6 "Legal labyrinth" shows a rhythm section in the SANTANA. moods, Another unusual resource is the use of classical guitar, as you can hear in the Track 7 "Futile prayer" and at last but not least surprisingly the Track 12 "No Time to Die" with a strong GENTLE GIANT's signature in some moments of melody. Aside this above mentioned tracks, I must say which all tracks are great and deserves equal attention . My rate is 5 stars, with excitement !!!!
