Much as the Beatles made Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band in response to the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds, Wide Angle (and this expanded version) was Hybrid's answer to Massive Attack's Blue Lines, particularly on "Finished Sympathy." Recorded in Russia with full orchestration, this is quite simply essential listening for any electronica fan.
