Birth Control - Titanic (1978)
The eight album from this German band.
Birth Control was a quintet on this album with a lineup of guitars, drums, bass, keyboards and vocals.
The band had released some really good albums during their time and I have really enjoyed them.
Until I got this one.
Progressive rock was uncool in 1978 and so was the music they had released up to now. So the band changed style.
The result is getting rid of of progressive rock and replacing it with some heavy rock.. even heavy metal.
Well, they were not heavy metal on this album.
But the music has some funk and a lot of heavy rock. The funk part is dreadful and even their standard rock, bordering to rockabilly, is pretty bad.
The only saving grace about this album is the half-decent title track and a couple of other half-decent songs. The rest is pure horror and abysmal.
