Map of the Past is the band in Bombastic overload with its big chorus and chunky riffs. Mitchells Guitar truly soars here. It also contains the best lyric of the album "what seperates from Chimpanzees is finite sense of Dignity". Clocks is the big ballad of the album with its swaying rhythm and beautifully understated musicianship from the entire band. Mitchells vocal style suits this type of song like a velvet glove. Upon hearing the news that It Bites was releasing a concept album, I was naturally intrigued. Especially so as their previous album, The Tall Ships, the first album by the re-formed band, had been such a strong one. Map Of The Past was released earlier this year and I got it shortly after its release date. I gave it about one and a half listen at the time, concluding that it was rather disappointing. I let it rest for a while.
Map of the Past" is a bit more John Mitchell than The Tall Ships, though Mr Beck's Proggy keyboard flourishes are stunning and he ensures that this album still captures the essence of It Bites. The musicianship is - as always - stunning, the songwriting brilliant. A labour of love I think. I just love It Bites. They're so quirky and clever, and they make life interesting. On this album, they do what they always do, which is disguise extremely clever prog as pop and make you listen to the album a few times before you pick up the prog idiosyncracies. So it's not in any way a disappointment to those (like me) who know and love them. But is it their best work? Nah - that's The Tall Ships.
