Dec 21, · referencing Morning Sci-Fi, CD, Album + DVD, S/Edition, PAL, DISNCD, DISNCDX, No matter what anyone says, Hybrid is an amazing group and they did not let me down with their new album/5(). The Morning Sci-Fi disc is one that showed up on my recommendations list. I enjoy a lot of techno/electronica music and I guess that's why. I'd never heard of Hybrid, but the disc seemed worth a try. Morning Sci-Fi is likeable music from the first play/5(58). Oct 24, · Hybrid no doubt has mastered the dark breaks on their second album, SCI-FI MORNING. But here, rather than storming clubland, they also seem to be reaching for crossover status with some indie-emo-rock vocals here and there. And, generally, the vocals work (though the lyrics can get overblown at times, but, hey, what's rock music without bombast?)/5().
Slow shimmering beats sit at the heart of this downtempo edged cut as haunting string layers engulf the swelling groove as it drops out and returns with darkner intent, setting the mood for the next track, 'I'm Still Awake'.
The dark and piercing beats of the outro soon fade to reveal a gravely vocal provided by Adam, drawing influence from the style of Thom Yorke to deliver a stunning and well delivered performance that controls the strings, guitar and orchestral grandeur which encases and captures the drama of the track to great effect.
Without a doubt one of the high points of the album so far. It's a pace and intensity maintained by 'We Are In Control', which with its combination of piano and guitars sits comfortably within evolving chord and beat progression which rises and drops with menacing precision, giving way to a dark robotic vocal.
Stopping in it's tracks a guitar solo takes over for a breathtaking outro which will have you quite literally salivating, with the progressive edges beats pushing things further and harder into the orchestral masterpiece that is 'Higher Than A Skyscraper'. St Petersburg's Hermitage String Orchestra turn in a sterling performance with accompanying bass from Peter Hook forming a backdrop like no other for Hybrid work their blend of dark and gritty beats into, but they do in emotional fashion that will have long standing Hybrid fans grinning with delight.
This high point only leaves one place to go, This Is What It Means - Hybrid - Morning Sci-Fi (CD, and that's down. Adam returns with a slightly more upbeat vocal performance on 'Steal You Away', complimenting the big strings and downtempo grooves of the track, emitting a summery vibe that wouldn't sound that far out of place on the beaches around Cafe Del Mar.
The change in pace is kept slow as 'Gravastar' creeps in next, it's combination of beat layers and synth loops encapsulating the spacious melody that slices through the centre.
More experimental in style than a lot of Hybrid's work to date, this adds an extra dimension to an already widely diverse album, fading into a thrashy beat groove which means one thing. It's time to head 'Out Of The Dark'. Melody lines rise out of the gaps between the dark beat patterns during the outro, ethereal sounds lending an eerie edge to Adam's delayed vocals, beats rising and keys Album) in time with his voice, sweeping and dropping as the atmosphere within grows, fading out to another vocal led break, this This Is What It Means - Hybrid - Morning Sci-Fi (CD dropping into a menacing and sinister breakbeat outro, with spacial effects ripping the groove apart.
A dramatic finale to quite possibly the standout track of the album, and a real contender for a single, if not a breakbeat anthem in the making. The final track on the album is the heartfelt emotion of 'Blackout', featuring the vocals of the very talented ex Opus III front woman Kirsty Hawkshaw. As we have come to expect from her work with artists such as BT and Way Out West, she delivers a raw vocal performance over slow tribal drums, with the backing of the Hermitage String Orchestra adding emotion and power to an already outstanding finale.
Quite literally a track that would be the perfect example of what Hybrid are all about, and bringing to an end a diverse and gutsy album. No doubt those who are hardcore fans of Wide Angle may be slightly taken aback by the darker, slower mood of the album in general, but there are more than enough moments to keep such people happy, and over a number of listens slowly bringing an understanding of what this album is to them.
Jay says: Call is one of those artists who effectively blurs the line between filk and muggle music, as her coffee-shop folk rock is so catchy and evocative the mundanes won't even notice she's got a crush on Mal Reynolds. Also, any track that uses a typewriter as a viable percussion instrument is nerd-worthy in its own right. Iron Maiden - Seventh Son of a Seventh Son John says: While Iron Maiden may be the quintessential heavy metal band, many of their albums have strong progressive rock leanings.
In addition to the epic length and odd time signatures of some of the tunes, the album title and lyrics were inspired by Orson Scott Card 's Seventh Son. David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust John says: If you're talking about rock music and science fiction, then you have to start with Ziggy Stardust.
Ahead of its time, most of the songs on the album still sound fresh today. Jay says: First, you're really a music geek when you know the full title of this album is The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. If that isn't an ode to s sci-fi cinema, I don't know what is. Second, when The Goblin King goes out of his way to make a skiffy album, you just bow and say thank you.

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 8/ Sep 15, · Album · · 12 Songs.
