Every song is laced with stings that really adds to the upbeat nature of this album.
Craig Keliher
I love the slow sadness of the beginning, the sudden entrance of drum breaks into the middle, and then the ethereal piano and vocal harmonies at the end.
H. Willson
Hybrid fans would be hard pressed to be disappointed, and even non-fans will grow to love much of the music I'm sure.

I have been following Hybrid since 1998 and they never disappoint. With their albums, remixes and Movie Scores they always push the envelope when it comes to their sound always breaking new ground. They are less electonic on this album but it gives way to lovely melodies with the addition of Charolette James vocals. There is not a weak track (filler) on this entire album. Every song is a classic. This is huge, from the trumphant chorus and epic strings to a huge bass line and drums. Tense atmospherics with pounding live drums set the stage and build layers of electric guitars and sweeping strings. I thought Choose Noise's strings seem dark whereas on Disappear Here they are more uplifting. Every song is laced with stings that really adds to the upbeat nature of this album. There are a floor fillers and chill out tunes for whatever mood your in. A must for anyone who loves dance music - to sum it up in one word - epic.

Ever since I bought this album last fall, it has been played countless times. Not one song on here is disappointing, each one shifting styles while holding on to a main theme. This album, while not loud and aggressive, has a very dark and intense vibe to it that I absolutely relish. The defining elements in this album are the percussion and vocals, though there are numerous classical pieces scattered through the songs.

We start off at "Empire", where those beats set the mood for the whole album.

Moving onto "Can You Hear Me Now", it's almost as if two songs were playing at once, complementing each other rather smoothly. I love how two polar opposites work so well together.

"Green Shell Suit" has nice beats and electronica, along with some elegant vocals in the background.

Now comes one of my album favorites, if not the favorite; "Disappear Here". It has a dark intro, slowly climbs up to a fantastic tempo, and falls away to a surreal and haunting end. The vocal work is superb, and the lyrics are nothing short of brilliant. Very entrancing song.

Everything shifts to calm acoustics once we reach "Every Word". It has a nice subtle beat, along with that nice vocal work that would make any road drive instant relaxation.

But don't get too comfortable, as "Formula Of Fear" makes it's mark. The rhythm is among the most catchy, and uses a fantastic piano piece that brings out the raw talent in this album. I won't explain how great the vocals/lyrics are yet again.

"City Siren" flaunts some great classical, which can be very well likened to a movie encore. It may be short, but that piece will be returning later in the album...

Also among my favorites is "Salt".

DISAPPEAR HERE is the fourth album by Hybrid, the duo of electronica producers Mike Truman and Chris Healings who have long explored a "cinematic" genre of dance beats mixed with string orchestra. Earlier Hybrid releases featured multiple lead vocalists, but for DISAPPEAR HERE they've chosen to especially highlight singer/songwriter Charlotte James. So large is James' contribution (she wrote the lyrics) that she's now called Hybrid's third member and always appears in band publicity.

The best moments here are reminiscent of Hybrid's earlier work. "Empire" is a fine intro, where aggressive beats are gradually swallowed up in strings, only to return more furious than before. "Green Shell Suit" is a little jewel of complexity and probably the most ambient thing that the band has done. Among vocal tracks, "Disappear Here" belongs in DJ sets whether in the original mix or remixes, and "Formula of Fear" is a well-crafted song. "Take a Fall" has rather annoying vocals by Tim Hutton, but I like the breaks here. "Break My Soul" is the most elaborate of all the tracks here, with powerful breaks, especially passionate vocals by James, and the City of Prague Orchestra going all out on strings.

However, the decision to make this a more "mainstream", radio-friendly release is a turn for the worse. "Every Word" and "Salt" are pop dreck. "Can You Hear Me?" often has that kind of cinematic glory Hybrid are known for and James is in fine form, but I cringe at the sudden intrusion by Tim Hutton who sounds especially chavish here. The mid-point interlude of "Break My Soul" rather undoes all the excitement built up by transitioning to a strumming guitar and weak vocals. And I wish there be more breaks.

This new album has everything I love Hybrid for: epic orchestras, big breaks, beautiful vocals and perfect production. It also has some unexpected new elements.

The track "Every Word" reminds me of an American folk song with Charlotte's earthy vocals and sliding guitars. I also enjoyed how "Can You Hear Me" feels like two songs spliced together. It's refreshing and helps tie the entire album together in a strangely cohesive way. Other standout tracks are "Salt" with it's middle-eastern dance vibe and the similarly sexy "Original Sin". "Break My Soul" is quintessential Hybrid with it's soaring strings and huge beats, but it blends into something soft and subdued with "Numb", the last track.

My favorite track is "Disappear Here". I love the slow sadness of the beginning, the sudden entrance of drum breaks into the middle, and then the ethereal piano and vocal harmonies at the end. Throughout the whole song is the typical atmospheric swirling voices and sound fx that give Hybrid such production depth.

I feel the album has a hard, dark vibe yet at the same time is quite tender and emotional. This juxtaposition to me is what gives it such interest and leaves me wanting to listen again as soon as it's over.
