Morning Sci-Fi [Bonus DVD]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
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 ...

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.

    Purely Awesome

    Haunting melodies plus a really great techno album all wrapped up into one! Make sure you listen to Kirsty Hankshaw on "Blackout."

    This album is really good but it is lacking something...

    I am a longtime Hybrid fan, and you know that there is a ton of Hybrid stuff out there. They have done so many remixes and have come out with a great first CD, "Wide Angle." I was expecting an album packed with anthems like "If I survive" and "Finished Symphony," but it really isn't. The songs sound good overall but there is a much more mellow, almost ambient feel to this album. I really can't say that I enjoyed Adam Taylor's vocals in about 3 or 4 of the songs, although they're not terrible, they don't impress me as much as the female's voice on many of the songs in Wide Angle. The album would have been better if it had more breakbeat and harder hitting songs on it. It is worth buying though, because if you're in a mellow mood, it is a nice cd to listen to.
