Christine C. (bolinbabe) from BRANFORD, CT
Reviewed on 2/3/2007...
The last INXS CD to feature Michael Hutchence, released in '97. A memorable effort and fitting tribute to Mr. Hutchence, especially as depicted in the great title track.

Not completely wasted. But almost...
Camilo Rueda Lopez | San Sebastian de Los Reyes, MADRID Spain | 08/04/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"After listening the whole album for the first time, you'll feel disappointed. You think someone has cheated on you: this is not INXS and, if it was, then it doesn't really sounds like INXS.

Yeah... but then, after a couple times you listened back again, the few gems start arising out of what initially seemed a whole crap.

The record as a whole is not a masterpiece, nor a mainstream success - take it for granted. But it still has some few great tracks still deserving to sit along with the biggest INXS hits.

Appart from the opening track, the first half of the album seems like a whirlwind, rockin' devastating. The band sounds like an autralian version of Oasis, and Michael's voice rumbles like Jim Morrison's on any famous Doors' albums. Thrilling hits, amazing rhythms, creative lyrics and good baselines made the first five or six songs on the album worth the money, but then, the second half of the record becomes boring... repetitive. Inconsequential.

Good enough not to mess the legacy of Michael Hutchence, who sadly died shortly after.

But almost it does..."
