I'm not sure why, but BYTE SIZE LIFE doesn't grab me as much as Omni Trio's other albums. It's plenty precise and clinical as his other work, and it has some melodic flair, but just not as much, I suppose. "Sound System" and "Revolver," for example, both sound slightly thin emotionally. The title track recaptures some of his earlier magic, and "Assassins" is appealingly dark, even if it doesn't quite hit the mark. Not surprisingly, "Brothers in Detroit" does have plenty of the Detroit techno sounds with deep, dreamy synth pads and Haigh's own trademark breaks. "Native Place" helps bring back the soul to the machines as well. Big Bud's mix of "Beyond the Fundamental" has much more Big Bud than Omni Trio, but "Radio Sirus" brings Haigh swirling back in fine form. Shimon does a dark take on "Byte Size Life," but all things considering, a 'pretty good' Omni Trio album still stands head-and-shoulders above most others.
