After 1 Listen,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Disappear Here (Audio CD)Long time Hybrid fan. Can't believe people are comparing this favourably to Wide Angle, especially in the same breath as slagging off the stuff in between. Are these people the same ones who have been moaning about all Hybrid's album releases since WA? And if so does that not imply Disappear Here is maybe a step backwards? Just asking.
Original Sin - a dark and driving belter - was for me the standout track on first listen but, like the album as a whole, I couldn't help but feel about two thirds of the way through that, for all its gut-wrenching, it wasn't really going anywhere. Maybe I was just too spoiled by (and wait for the hoots of derision) I Choose Noise, which imho has been their most balls-grabbing recording to date.
So. First impression? Not so good. I really hope I'm wrong and that after a few listens I'll change my mind. If/when that happens I'll gladly post a grovelling retraction!
