Unavailable in the U.S.! The original 1989 British release of It Bites' third and final studio album finds the band maturing and rocking a little harder than their past efforts. Fronted by singer/guitarist Francis Dunnery, this semi-Progressive outfit were extremely creative in their arrangements, layered backing vocals and unforgettable melodies. This version of the album contains all original material recorded for the album, as opposed to the U.S. version, which dropped half of these tracks to make room for more commercial tracks from their previous albums. Features 'Underneath Your Pillow' and 'Still Too Young To Remember'. Virgin.

"Even if you're really into progressive rock music, It Bites is not a name you hear very often, which is odd considering the band's obvious talent. Yes and Genesis are the obvious points of comparison, at least in identifying the band's influences. Their sound is also similar to the Chris Squire and Billy Sherwood bands World Trade and Conspiracy. Fans of the more modern progressive bands like Spock's Beard and the Flower Kings should find It Bites quite enjoyable as well.
Apparently there are different versions of Eat Me in St. Louis. The UK version is a full-length studio album, but the US version, which I own, is actually made up of tracks from Eat Me in St. Louis and Once Around the World. There is also a fairly pricey import version that has been remastered. If you're looking for a good introduction to It Bites, the US version is probably ideal. If you want the "real" album, you're going to have to seek out one of the import versions.
