4 stars A textured and dynamic album played in a very classic style featuring well-composed songs showcasing the instrumental dexterity of the young group. "Hybris" is a gem of the prog- revival and holds up today.

Largely instrumental, "Hybris" abounds with complex melodies which never disappoint; they are played with razor precision and energy (blonde, Swedish energy). Each member has their moments, and all are on top of their game. The song writing is epic in sound, and gives the listener a variety of themes and textures to enjoy, as well as varied instrumentation to mix things up. The lyrics are exclusively Swedish, which in my opinion makes the album all the more enjoyable, and sung with a nice inflection and soulfulness.

There really isn't a weak spot on this album, and complaints about it will likely come down to a matter of taste; however, for those who enjoy symphonic rock or the prog-giants of the '70's will not be disappointed.
