5 stars I have always enjoyed science fiction genre, from movies such as Blade Runner and tv series like Almost Human to games like Mass Effect and Shadowrun. One fundamental element of these creations I enjoy is the atmosphere achieved by their narrative.

Mark Healy has accomplished a flawless atmosphere through the entire album with exceptional music and intriguing lyrical narrative.

I had my doubts about listening to an album that had a story narrated while music was playing in the back since I had mixed experiences in the past with this sort of "storytelling meets music" concept, but Replacements changed my notion on how well a narrative can blend with music.

Though narrative is a main focus on this album the musical aspect is not strictly accompanying, each individual track has its own mood generator that emerges between narrations as very enjoyable post-rock music.

The vocal work on this album is really good and as captivating as it is it also delivers a lot of emotion.

The art cover by Yiğit Köroğlu is amazing, it caught my attention while reading about new releases on the internet and led me to Hibernal.

I highly recommend this album for everyone interested in a good dosis of sci-fi narrative and for fans of modern post-rock, "satisfaction guaranteed"!
