In the 1990’s, INXS achieved a greater fan following through Hutchence's romance with fellow Australian singer Kylie Minogue leading to greater acclaim in the United Kingdom. INXS went on to sell over 45 million records worldwide.
This Sydney-based band produced some fantastic songs over the years and this collection provides an excellent overview of their career up until the death of the charismatic Hutchence in 1997 and certainly features all of their best known and loved songs.
There are plenty of massive hits to be enjoyed here. "Need You Tonight", one of their most memorable tracks, "What You Need" a piece of catchy 80’s pop with light, breezy verses and slamming, crashing choruses. "Disappear" follows the same formula with the same success. The piano-led "Mystify" is another commercially-appealing, hook-laden piece of pop, as is “Suicide Blonde". Then there is the dramatic and magnificent "Never Tear Us Apart" which must surely remain Hutchence and INXS' finest hour. But the list goes on.
All-in-all, this album is well worth getting.
I loved INXS back in the day and have really enjoyed listening to this CD.
