Hype text from the label:

The impeccable new album Morning Sci-fi, part recorded in Russia and part recorded at their Swansea based studio in Wales, sees collaborations with Adam Taylor, NYC based DJ/remixer John Creamer, Kirsty Hawkshaw, the legendary Peter Hook (New Order) and The Hermitage String Orchestra, St Petersburg.

Hybrid vowed to explore the unknown and this, their second album, has done just that, eclipsing the original critically acclaimed debut ‘Wide Angle’ and crossed boundaries. The unique new offering, a wonder clash, a crossbreed of beats electronic, rock + raw and a trademark orchestral sound.

'We've been listening to absolutely anything other than dance music,” explains Healings. “I suppose that is because dance music is so ingrained into what we do naturally. We've been listening to stuff like The Doves, Radiohead, Soulwax, New Order and lots of jangly indie guitar bands and classical music, particularly the work of Arvo Part and Alexander Gretchaninov.'

At the recent Breakspoll International Breakbeat awards, Hybrid proved to be making their mark on the ever growing global breakbeat scene, where they were nominated for five categories. Mike Truman was nominated and walked away with the best producer award 2003.

Having wowed both Miami Winter Music Conference and Fabriclive, with their astonishing new live set up, complete with groundbreaking visuals, Hybrid have introduced two unique talents - Adam Taylor (lead vocal and guitar) and Tim Hutton (bass) with original live member Alex Madge (drums).

The world’s best bass player, Peter Hook (New Order), has co-produced and collaborated exclusively with Hybrid, on the two killer tracks ‘True to Form’ and ‘Higher than a Skyscraper’. Hooky will make his debut stage appearance with Hybrid at selected + exclusive live shows across the country.

If your CD player does not support rewinding to listen to the hidden track, here's a solution to get a hold of it.

Load into a computer with a drive that does support HTOA.
Open ExactAudioCopy
Copy image and cue sheet, you will get 1 wave file containing the full disc. (Note that the cue sheet on the US release is slightly different! - look at that release where user agt_dale_cooper did an excellent job)

Now you can already play the hidden track in the big wave file, if you want to split into individual tracks, then adapt the generated cue sheet.

For me this is the best Hybrid album. We Are In Control, Out Of The Dark, True To Form, and off course Gravastar are great tracks.

But there is one thing what's bother me.
Track 0.
"Contains hidden track located before track one. To access it, press the rewind button on your CD player at the beginning of track one until you reach time -6:07."
Yeah right. The only problem with this thing is lot of CD players does NOT tolerate this solution. I'm lucky because one of my CD players can do this.

Awesome album, well worth owning on vinyl too. A stunning tour de force of ambient electro, beautifully produced. If you're new to Hybrid this is a good choice although "Disappear Here" from 2010 is excellent also...

Hybrid have really done their stuff here. A real nice collection of Downtempo music and Progressive House. The lyrical talent of Adam Taylor on this release are really nice (compared to the usual female vocals used), especially on tracks such as "I'm Still Awake", "True To Form" and "Out Of The Dark". Restricting themselves to not making an overloaded album of noises and repetitive sounds, they have made the album simple and effective. The bonus DVD is an extra goody containing some excellent bonus material about touring with Moby and the work behind "Morning Sci-Fi". For me, this is a definately good abum released from Hybrid.

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?). "True to Form" is appealingly dark, even before the thundering beats come in. And with Peter Hook's trademark bass, the track sounds eerily close to a New Order track. "Marrakech" has little of the Middle Eastern influence that you'd expect and instead opts for stomach-rattling bass, and "I'm Still Awake" and "Steal You Away" both scream for alternative radio to pay attention. But "Visible Noise" simply rocks harder than either. "Gravastar" shows off their talent for pure electronic dance music, more than the good-but-not-great "Out of the Dark." Kirsty Hawkshaw lends her piercing vocals to "Blackout," but it's clear where the Hybrid boys' strengths are. You can hear it pounding in your head for days afterwards.

No matter what anyone says, Hybrid is an amazing group and they did not let me down with their new album. Simply Amazing. You must listen as I can not put into words what they have done on their album. Also for those who already have it, their is a hidden bonus track on the cd. Just goto the first track and rewind it, you'll see it start going into the negative numbers. It starts somewhere around -6:07 or somewhere around there. I don't think you can do this in a computer CD player, so you'll have to use a standalone.
