Echo what others have said about the pressing issues. I bought mine on release and had all the AI warp releases on coloured vinyl. The best sounding one in the series was Speedy J ‘ginger’ all the others had issues. This and the grey vinyl Autechre lp are the worst.
Having said that this is a stunningly good record musically.
It’s light years ahead of most stuff from that time considering this was all midi driven and DAWs were hugely expensive and in their infancy. Most of this is made and recorded on hardware.
One of my top ten LPs of all time…

Hands down still a fav in 2021. Thank the cosmos for labels like WARP early on taking on such quirky and odd electronica and offering it to us feeble listeners in America! This B12 and Autechres debut are STILL go to listens irregardless of the contorted looks I might get from friends the music is just as fresh as it was back in the day(ok a few drum loops are dated!).

sooooo much soul in this record. "Merck" is one of my all time favorite songs now :) They made some pretty incredible synths and gear back in the 90's huh? Glad these guys made this album.

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.
