5 stars Like a long lost friend from the early 70's, "Hybris" showed up unexpectedly in 1992. But make no mistake about it: it was made in '92 (the clean production attests to that). As James Hill said, their music sounds as if former YES and KING CRIMSON members had recently joined forces for a gig. And what a gig! The music of 'Hybris" is complex, sharp, almost edgy and with dark overtones - it sometimes sounds downright strange. At other times, you'll come across poignant passages that will make you ache with longing. The overall effect is simply mesmerizing: like a musical Disneyworld, the soundscapes change at dizzying speed and take you where no music lover has ever gone before. This is perhaps the least 'symphonic' (I'm referring here to the 'choppy' nature of some passages) of the prog albums that I truly enjoy. Unless you are completely brain dead, I'm sure you'll find in "Hybris" a whale of an album. A gem, pure and simple.
