Album Review

Hybrid return with their patented and totally-tech breakbeat that includes that so distinctive slap at the end. It's the sound that lined up Radiohead, Moby, and Filter for remixes, and two albums in, it shows no sign of getting played out. Perhaps it's because on Morning Sci-Fi they use it sparingly, and with so much focus on the atmosphere and filigree, they come off as Massive Attack and Trevor Horn's lovechild. Morning Sci-Fi is darker than Wide Angle and it's not as upfront about its excellence. Vocalist Adam Taylor has been added as a permanent member and his David Gahan-like voice shows up here and there. It's good when it does, but Morning Sci-Fi's best moments are the moody instrumentals. There are great moments when New Order's Peter Hook guests for two songs on his ever recognizable and melodic six-string bass, and once again a string orchestra is utilized. Their appearances make total sense, and the album ends up being more than the sum of its parts. Moody, cinematic, and incredibly well-constructed, Morning Sci-Fi puts Hybrid ahead of Underworld by a length.

Customer Reviews

Far Exceeded Expectations

This album was suggested to me through Genius, which prior to this choice has not been entirely trustworthy. I must say that the song previews do not do the songs justice. From the soothing intro track "This Is What It Means" to songs like "Higher Than A Skyscraper" and "Steal You Away" which sound like they came right out of movie soundtracks, this album never gets old. While some songs, like "Gravastar" seem like fairly standard techno/electronic tracks, they serve the purpose of dividing up the album's moodier tracks, making the traversal from track 1 to 12 an interesting and diverse experience. All in all, Morning Sci-Fi has turned out to be one of the best electronic albums I have ever bought.

An all-time favourite

This is one of my all-time favourite albums. Hybrid's more recent work just doesn't quite measure up. There is something truly special about this album. It demands to be listened to all the way through, not on shuffle. I've been trying (in vain) for years to find something which equals it.

Hybrid's best work, not immediately nice, but brilliant

This album can be dark and brooding at times, but truly shows off all that hybrid is, and what makes them so good. I initially listened to random songs in iTunes, and was not so enthused, but after I gave it a listen in the car is when its genius came through!

Marrakech and Blackout are my favourites!

Biography

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Hybrid began as a trio of remixers based in the Welsh city of Swansea: Mike Truman, Chris Healings, and Lee Mullin. Meeting while going to clubs in the early '90s, the three made their own remixes of recordings, eventually earning assignments from record companies to pursue their hobby professionally. Finally, they were signed to Distinct'ive Records and embarked on making an ambitious first album, Wide Angle, in Moscow, using such talents as singer Julee Cruise and the 90-piece Russian Federal Orchestra....
