This is a interesting CD, which features Michael Brooks on infinite guitar, guitar, synthesiser, bass etc etc. It also includes Daniel Lanois, Brian Eno and a few other occasional guests. Brian Eno plays such things as treatments, mix, swamp percussion, piano etc. Interesting and imaginative titles reflect the likewise interesting music on this CD; it contains layers of long structured sounds and instruments on top of some tracks which contain drums and guitars that propel the music in a forward momentum. Other tracks feature longer type structures of infinite guitar nicely layered with interesting rhythms and sounds. It's a well crafted album that is nicely structured and paced, and is by no means 'boring'. Although not listed in my top 10 albums of all time it would be in my top 100?! Munt1

Cricket captains have 'go-to' bowlers - people they can always rely on in a tight spot. This is a go-to album for me, and has been since I bought it on release many years ago. It's a sublime, gentle and extraordinarily beautiful collection from the man who invented the infinite guitar as used by The Edge, but much more hauntingly and lovingly deployed here by its creator. This set is not quite ambient because there's too much that catches the ear, but it is reliably gentle and breathtakingly lovely. I often put Hybrid on when reading, working or when eating with friends. One or two tracks (notably the standout Midday) still make time stand still after thousands of listens. If you like Eno and Lanois (who co-produced) or you're just into gorgeous chillout music, buy this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Ambient Album! 30 Nov. 2013
By Rich Latta - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Michael Brook with Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois - Hybrid (1985)

As a massage therapist, this is one of my "go-to" albums when it comes to relaxing music for massage. It's also great for meditating, working on your computer or any number of things when you might want to enhance your environment with a mellow atmosphere. In my profession, I typically have a whole hour to concentrate on music while I'm working, so I'm very in tune with what a relaxing album has to offer. Often massage therapists use New Age-y kinds of music but this is something different. Some of the songs feature very hypnotic processed tribal rhythms, not typically heard in a massage studio, but it's actually quite relaxing and thus appropriate. Other songs are serene and almost still, much more ambient. Some of the pieces even sound more like environmental recordings than music. The only drawback is one track toward the end which sounds a bit like a siren and is thus vaguely unsettling. However, this is only a minor complaint and it's not likely to bother most people. A most enjoyable record, one I return to often and I've yet to get sick of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Channel of light 22 July 2000
By loteq - Published on
Format: Audio CD
After I had immersed myself into the quintessential avant-garde guitar rock of "Cobalt blue" and "Live at the aquarium", "Hybrid" first came as a little disappointment to me. Michael's arpeggio style isn't featured here, instead, this album reminds me of Brian Eno's "Ambient 4 - On land" and "Apollo". Dig a bit deeper, and you'll see that "Hybrid" is just as good as the aforementioned records, and perhaps even more engaging and accomplished. Michael's 'infinite guitar' can often be confused with flutes or violins, while the soft, subdued melodies add a much-needed human dimension to the ambitious soundscapes. The title cut and the ghostly "Distant village" have strange, swampy percussion rumbling in the background, but these tracks are so complex that the structures and melodies only emerge after a couple of listens. "Mimosa" and the intimate "Earth floor" have a more menacing, tension-filled undercurrent, while "Pond life" nearly entirely consists of field recordings. The refreshing, aptly titled "Ocean motion" and the bright "Midday" once again feature Michael's unobtrusive guitar style. "Vacant" closes things on a bass-heavy note and prefigures the sound of Brian Eno's "The Shutov Assembly". Overall, there are lots of magic moments in this album which are really worth being discovered. A must-have for fans of experimental ambient music.

4.0 out of 5 stars exotic and highly imagative 16 July 2002
By David - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I'm not quite sure how to describe "Hybrid". I guess musical landscapes to 8 different settings. Turning the volume up and closing my eyes I venture into some African village that has never seen white man, doing their tribal ritual dance... I am lured into a deep hypnotic trance. Swatting the mosquitos away I stumble upon a jaded blue pond, the marshlands infested with venomous creatures. Standing out in a mid west wheat field, a gentle breeze stirring through out, a constant clattering of crickets. Diving into the coral reefs, brilliant flashes of colour from fishes of various shapes and sizes coming your way.
These are the impressions I get from listening to "Hybrid". I may get something completely different the next time I listen to it. When it comes to ambient music, I don't think you can find better musicians than Michael Brook, Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois. All three are multi talented producers and they should have a pretty good idea in what texture to put to the music. There isn't a lot of different instruments heard through out, obviously there is lots of over dubbing and Michael's infinity guitar may also have a saying in that. The infinity guitar is a guitar Michael invented and with only three in existence, Daniel Lanois and The Edge of U2 owning the other two.
Okay maybe "Hybrid" isn't everybody's cup of tea and it may seem a bit monotonous at times. Some people may think that "Cobalt Blue" is a far superior c.d and in some regards it is. "Hybrid" to me seems to flow aimlessly and not put to much enthusiasm in being creative. It's highly imagative music as opposed to anything else I listen to.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful, if somewhat tentative, debut album 18 Dec. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
"Hybrid," when it came out, had the stamp of approval of Brian Eno, who was then near the end of an amazing series of ambient projects. Those longing for the crystal melody of "The Pearl" or the brooding earthiness of "On Land" were bound to be somewhat disappointed by "Hybrid," which seemed to suffer from an uneven purpose. But time has been kind to the album. Brook, as it turned out, was staking out new territory that would later reemerge more fully on "Cobalt Blue." "Hybrid" certainly has more space between memorable moments, but nothing on "Cobalt Blue" quite measures up to "Deep Blue Day," as vivid an ambient composition as I've ever heard. It's an album that creeps up on you, and I'd recommend it to anyone who has the patience to give it several listens before dismissing it.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice effort 23 Sept. 2000
By Sean M. Kelly - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I was gung-ho to get this lp, as it had Eno, one of the all time greats on it, as well as Michael Brook, who's "Cobalt Blue" continues to amaze me for all its beauty.
Fans of both men were probably a bit disappointed- Brook fans wanted more Brook; Eno fans saw this as not as strong an effort as it could have been. Perhaps they all are right, but taking the cd for what it has to offer, I very much enjoy it.
Yes, its more an Eno lp than Brook, but that doesn't mean that Brook was a mere spectator in these proceedings. His contributions to the lp are strong, as are Eno's and Lanois', which makes for a great lp.
Eno and Brook fans will come to appreciate this lp more over time, as they should. Its a fine ambient journey by all men, and it holds its own well.
