Absolute masterpiece. An incredibly stimulating and rich listening experience from beginning to end, I'm continuously amazed by the sheer amount of ideas contained within this collection of tracks and interludes. The whole thing is perfectly paced and I can't help but laugh every time I get to 'Fight The Hits'. The artwork is also brilliant, especially the front cover which gives you the opportunity to look through the window and see a vista of another world, leaving the rest up to your imagination. Listening to this album evokes the same happy feelings as playing some of my favourite games did when growing up (the Wind Waker especially) and I'm really grateful for that.

This needs a good remaster and a quality repress. They need to clean it up a bit, especially the distortion present in the piano on 3/4 heart (both vinyl and cd). It deserves it!

A repress of Bytes is long overdue. Hope it happens in the near future. Damn shame that Autechre ‎– Incunabula has got 2 represses and this one none.

Probably one of the highlights of the first 30 years of house, techno, electro, whatever you want to call it. It is the life enhancing simplicity and joy of music-making itself. Still magical after all these years.

It's all about Plaid-Object Orient. I have just no words. Amazing. Like a painting.

Bought this when it first came out in Reading, has always been one of my favourite electronic albums along with B12 Electro-Soma, the first three Plaid albums. The artificial intelligence series changed UK music.

Last two tracks are Ed Handley masterpieces. I'd have to say he's my all time favourite artist (Balil, Close Up Over, and obviously half of Plaid).

I agree with chap below, one of the best electronic albums ever. When I first heard this it blew my mind, and always has done. Specially effective when one chooses to expand ones mind ;)

Quality of this pressing is really bad. Had two copies both awful - get the regular issue on black vinyl..
