INXS - CD - Rating: 6/10

This is one of the oldest CDs in my collection. It was given to me as a gift. At the time I never really liked it that much… except for maybe “Need You Tonight.” In hindsight, it’s not THAT bad. There are plenty of hits that you can sing along with. And even the schmaltz like “Never Tear Us Apart” is appealing to my aging ears.

However, I was a big fan of Shabooh Shabah, and this record does even come close to that one. They seem to have lost much of the phat-synth sound in favor of a more sparse pop structure.
