"Come December, “Map of the Past” will feature heavily in end-of-year lists and will top many, and deservedly so; it is the most ambitious, yet quite simply the best, album of It Bites’ career to date."
"Map Of The Past is something of a triumph for the new It Bites, and should prove a hit with prog fans new and old"
"Map of the Past shows why It Bites should be savoured and played frequently for the rest of the year and beyond"
"Not inconsistent but diverse, It Bites are probably sick of seeing the words "should be huge" but they probably should be huge. They are, moreover, a powerful and exact live act."
