First studio disc in nearly 20 years and what a comeback. I was a little worried what this would sound like, as it doesn't feature mainman Francis Dunnery, but John Mitchell has stepped in here and does a mighty fine job playing and producing. Initial thoughts are that this is prime time It Bites with no real change to their style or sound at all, which is great news. In fact, this could have been recorded a couple of years after 'Eat Me In St. Louis' and you wouldn't know, except a few production tweaks and Mitchells's input. All the bands trademarks are there from the typical keys, to Mitchells guitars, which sound scarily like Dunnery's at times. Songs are of a real high standard as usual and I can't find any fillers in here at all. Nearly 70 minutes of excellent, intelligently played rock music, with shorter 4-5 minute tracks and the 13 minute epic 'This Is England' to close out the disc. The boys are back in town and boy am I glad they are - FANTASTIC

Anyone know what they are saying at the beginning of the song "Oh My God"???

Great,great, great album indeed,a great come back with a new challenge,a new man on the Mic (John Mitchell).We all know that Mr Dunnery was the man and it was hard to accept another musician doing the vocal duties (well the same happened when Fish left Marillion)but It Bites as well as Marillion did the right choice.The songs are just amazing Prog Rock and the chorus ala old school provided by Mr Beck are the label of the album."The Tall Ships"(beautiful and moody),"The Wind...","Great Disasters" and "This Is England"(anthem) are just a little example of how a Prog Rock album should sound.An admirable job indeed.95/100

Great album indeed.In fact this is rather an excellent AOR release with some prog elements than a prog rock one.Whatever it is, this is a very strong comeback for the brit legends!
