If I was stranded on a desert island with nothing else but this CD, and something to play it on of course, I would quite happily spend the rest of my days listening to an album, (probably the only one ever) with not one duff song on it. It is incredible to me, even 20 years later, how fresh the songs still sound. Dunnery's guitar is melodic yet provides awesome rock rhythm (Rose Marie, Black December). The rhythm section is flawless, and Beck's keyboards sparkle. The lyrics are thoughtful and witty and the harmonies are tight. I don't think we'll ever really know why It Bites split up when they looked like they were really going places. If you are a rock fan this is one album you must own. Like I said - Simply Awesome!
