This cd has all the 80's songs you heard on the radio. A MUST if you don't want to go out and get every one of their cds.

"There are foten times where a group isn't now what they were ack then. Nevertheless, there have been some noticible acceptions. INXS recentsly has been one of them. Nearly a decade after the tragic death of Michael Hutchence, they struck back into the industry with J.D. Fortune on their comeback record Switch. While some are welcoming his arrival, others just sometimes look at the past and what INXS had back in the 80's and 90's, and what they had was a great mix of pop & rock that was just absolutely driven into the best in music, and that stays true on this greatest hits record.
INXS 1994 Greatest Hits record is a well-recognized reflection of the group during its heyday as one of the biggest rock backs of the world. The 16 track compilation delivers quite nnicely into what is really over the top. The songs here could've been remastered a little better, but deliver a lot of great tracks like their #1 smashes Need You Tonight, the haunting and soulful Never Tear Us Apart, Suicide Blonde, Dissapear and the upbeat and delightful New Sensation which was used recently for commercials for Bally Total Fitness health club, and What You Need to name a few. The songs still are great to listen to, but there just could've been a little more that should've been added.
So many INXS fans now might be torn between this collection and the 2001 Best OF INXS record which has more songs to match, but this collection of their music uis still alright. INXS Greatest Hits is a very nice reflection from a group of Australian Suicide Blondes.

"INXS is a respectable band. Well, the WERE a respectable band...right up until the point they went on a reality show to replace their lead singer--the late, great Michael Hutchence.
But up until that point they were as respectable as a pop group could be. They weren't groundbreaking and probably weren't influential, but they made a lot of good songs that were enjoyed by a lot of people and they weren't forgotten three years later so many of their contemporaries.
As far as their songs go, you can probably get everything you need on a compilation--there's no need to go out and find the albums. And this compilation is pretty solid. The majority of their hits and well-known songs are here.
If you're a casual fan of INXS or this style of music, then you should probably own this album. I knocked it down to three stars (from four) for three reasons, and if none of these things concern you, then you can go ahead and consider this a great compilation album.
The three things:
a) There's are a lot of extra tracks here. Either they are songs off of later albums or they were new material--I've never bothered to figure it out. In any case, they make the last half of the album a complete dud.
b) The didn't include "Mediate." It seems like they could have dumped one of the new tracks and inserted this right behind "Need You Tonight," just like it's done in the video.
c) This is the big one--they left off "Don't Change." That makes absolutely no sense to me--it was one of their first hits and one of their greatest songs. I can't fathom how they would decide to leave it off in favor of new stuff and lesser songs.
That said, everything else of note seems to be here: Need You Tonight, Suicide Blonde, Original Sin, Disappear, Devil Inside...etc...you can read the track list for yourself--you don't need my help with that."
