This review is from: Live in Montreux 1987 (Audio CD)
It Bites are a band that are almost impossible to categorise given the ecclectic nature of their music. Haircut 100 meets early Yes might come close to describing this most talented, eccentric and charismatic band of the 80's. This live cd captures them during their most fruitful period which followed the release of the prog oriented "Once Around The World" which out of their three studio albums sees their phenomenal talents as musicians come to the fore yet maintain their canny knack to write an accessible tune.

Their performance here is generally first rate with excellent renditions of "Black December", "I've Got You" and of course, "Calling All The Heroes" which sounds infinitely better live than the poppy studio version. Elsewhere the performances are a little ordinary and sometimes a tad dissappointing, "Yellow Christian" suffering it seems from a badly chosen guitar sound. It is good that the epic "Once Around The World" is included altough it is not from the same concert and is rather badly recorded.

Overall despite its flaws this is a very worthwhile purchase capturing a magnificent live band at the peak of their powers. Pity they don't make them like this anymore!!
