CD Reviews

Birth Control steers towards such Gentle Giant style!!
Lethe | Milan, Italy | 03/20/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Odd time signatures and a certain harmonic complexity as well characterize this album, probably their best one. The job at the moog by Zeus B. Held is reminiscent of such style by the keyboardplayer from Gentle Giant, Kenny Minnear,and moreover you can listen to three tracks at least, divided into several movements, like such mini suites,which are well worth checking out...the opener "One first of April" and the last track "No time to dye" too, are written off as main leading tracks. In particular the latter has a confident feeling and a stunning closing vocal section too, whose harmonies are in the vein of Yes...instead "Beedeepees" has a Gentle Giant mood,but also a complex and quite original structure, which is inspired by the same poliphonic passages from the english heroes of renaissance and baroque poliphony of the seventies.Besides "Behind grey walls" is reminiscent of the early Genesis,being romantic and solid in the same time... such a powerful track!! Then finally a diverse number- "La Ciguena de Zaragoza" - which is more jazzy, expecially at the end, where you find a tasty sax. Instead talking about the story, honestly the present concept album regarding the dramatic vicissitudes of a businessman and all his journeys, as long as He will be killed under a subway,is a bit tepid !! The meaning itself is without sense, but fortunately the instrumental parts are as much remarkable as those ones typical of the best 70's german space rock bands; and for this reason We can forgive them for such uninspiring story...
This issue can complete your 70's german progressive rock collection... if you are into it, you won't be disappointed, regarding naturally of this definitive effort by Birth Control!!"
