It Bites: Whole New World: The Virgin Albums 1986-1991

Album Review

The 1980s at its smuggest.

There’s a gulf the size of the Grand Canyon separating the reputation and reality of It Bites, and from it rises the stench of crushing disappointment. Coming to this bafflingly celebrated cult band a quarter of a century after their initial burst of micro-fame is a dispiriting experience.
