This is a decent INXS album, it's definitely one for the fans.

Great band and gritty, edgy music that also features duets with Chrissie Hynde and Ray Charles. A sweet addition to one's collection if you are as enamored of this band as I am. Everything's in great shape as well, though there's a small notch on the edge of the jewel case.

Classic music from this band that sadly no longer exists...
A Glimmer of INXS' full potential

"I was recently blessed to have rediscovered this CD in my collection. I think many people shun this CD and almost anything post X, but this really shows a glimpse of a side of INXS that had never come out, and unfortunately wouldn't come out again.
Straight up, this was INXS attempt at moving into the alternative/grunge sound of the 90's. While it didn't fully succeed, and it was sadly overlooked, this is a great album. In it, we see a lot of experimentation and creativity from the group in one big jump. They blended a lot of the popular sounds of the era into their own and created an album that was all their own.
This is not an album to buy if you are just getting into INXS based on their hits. You won't find any true hits here. People were accustomed to what had become the standard INXS sound, and this album was shunned... even by me. However, there are some fantastic songs here.
If one can look at this album as something that is not INXS they will find an album full of excellent lyrics, music, and vocals. The album isn't very coherent, but I find that I don't have to skip any tracks to enjoy it. The music ranges from a hard rock beat in songs like Time, The Gift, and Make Your Peace to ballad like tempos with Full Moon Dirty Hearts and Freedom Deep. Freedom Deep is great because it builds to a nice climax with a slow crescendo that grows in fullness and loudness. The title track previously mentioned includes a great duet between Michael Hutchence and Crissy Hynde, and Please is a duet with the great Ray Charles.
If you like INXS, and you don't mind something that is quite a bit different from anything you're used to, put yourself to the challenge of Full Moon, Dirty Hearts.... Just be sure you give it a chance and don't give up on it too easy. I regret that it took be 10 years to rediscover its greatness."

"I wouldn't say that this is INXS' best album, because there's Kick. But strangely, when at times when I long to hear their music, this is the album I miss most of all.At the time where U2 had seemingly thrown out their rock sound and reinvented themselves, INXS to a certain extent did the same with Welcome to Wherever You Are. I thought that was a strange album. Without having gone through Kick and X, it would be a hard album to swallow. But as a fan who is more likely to give it a second listen, I found it to be a fantastic album.This album came along, and their popularity plummeted. They became labelled 'has-been'. But I listened to it consistently, and found it to be the most touching of all their albums. For me, this was probably the most soul baring of all the other records. The edgy greasy sound was a probably their response to the grunge rage, but worked perfectly. The stripped down production also made the songs as they were meant to be: just songs.Sometimes fans don't ever want their bands to grow. People dismissed Pop (U2). People will dismiss Full Moon, Dirty Hearts (well, see how many reviews this got), but I think this would probably be one album Michael Hutchence held close to his heart."
