Hybrid - Morning Sci-fi Hybrid’s debut ‘Wide Angle’ was always going to be a difficult record to follow up, and here, four years on, is ‘Morning Sci-Fi’. On the former album the band established themselves as evocative breaks masters, with string textures to grace many a soundtrack. Here they have acquired a full time vocalist, Adam Taylor, and secured guest contributions from Peter Hook (twice) and Kirsty Hawkshaw. Hook makes his presence felt early on, beefing up the edgy splendour of ‘True To Form’ with a riff straight out of Manchester

Hybrid released their second album, Morning Sci-Fi, in 2003. This album had a generally darker theme than Wide Angle, though still retaining the cinematic undertones for which Hybrid are known. In addition to this, Morning Sci-Fi features a more diverse range of influences than its predecessor - Chris Healings stating in an interview that, We've been listening to absolutely anything other than dance music.

Classics is a greatest hits album by Hybrid. The album contains songs from Hybrid's previous studio albums and also contains a cover of "Enjoy the Silence", originally by Depeche Mode. The album was originally due for autumn 2011, but ended up being delayed until 30 July 2012. The album contains songs taken from Hybrid's previous albums. Finished Symphony" and "If I Survive" appeared on Hybrid's debut album Wide Angle. Initial copies mistakenly excluded "Orbit" (which is presented in its full 5 minute length), prompting Distinct'ive to delay shipping of the box sets.

Morning Sci - Fi, 1999. Morning Sci - Fi, 1999. This Is What It Means, 01:19. Know Your Enemy, 05:58. I'm Still Awake, 06:24. Visible Noise, 07:12.

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. Their appearances make total sense, and the album ends up being more than the sum of its parts. Moody, cinematic, and.

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 ExactAudioCopyCopy 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.
