A landmark electronica/IDM album,
This review is from: Bytes (Audio CD)
Probably one of the best albums ever released in the genre of electronica/IDM. What Black Dog did with 'Bytes' was to revolutionise how we saw electronic music, they set new standards which have rarely been reached by other artists. In fact, Black Dog never matched what they did with 'Bytes', though they did come quite close with 'Spanners'.
This is electronic music at its best. Ambient at times, always progressive and innovative. Black Dog showed techno didn't need to be aimed at the dancefloor. The drum programming on this album was also innovative for its time, few other artists having ventured to do it.
