Editorial Reviews

Deluxe Edition features one bonus track ('Devil Inside' featuring Ben Harper and Nikka Costa) plus 40 page booklet containing lyrics, images from the various sessions and liner notes from Jon Farris. 2010 release from the Australian superstars featuring collaboration with vocalists from around the world. In their 33 years as a band, first as the Farriss Brothers, then as INXS, brothers Tim, Jon and Andrew Farriss, along with Kirk Pengilly and Garry Gary Beers have created some of the most enduring music in rock history. On Original Sin, INXS hits are revitalized for a new century and new generations of music listeners. This ambitious project finds the band teaming up with musicians from around the globe featuring superstars like Train's Pat Monahan, Rob Thomas and Ben Harper to up and comers like Dan Sultan, Argentina's Deborah de Corral and DJ Yaleidy's of Cuba. From Thomas and Yaleidy's' sultry teaming on "Original Sin" and trip-hop superstar Tricky's electrifying "Mediate" to Pat Monahan's emotional "Beautiful Girl," INXS boldly embrace their past and future on one album.

Format: Audio CD
I read a couple of reviews panning this release, so I wanted to contribute my own to say that I really like it. Make no mistake, this takes a lot of getting used to when you know and love the original songs. For instance, the version of "Mystify" on here is NOTHING like the original, same goes for "New Sensation".

But hey, if I want the originals, I listen to the originals (preferably in 5.1 DTS Surround sound on the "I'm only looking" DVD set). IMHO, the tracks on this album are truly imaginative recreations of INXS classics, covering interesting new territory. Some passages (or almost entire songs) have been translated into Spanish or French, some songs have a meditative, spiritual flow to them (New Sensation) while others are energetic and thumping (Original Sin).

Many artists have tried remixing or remaking their own songs, or covering others', and more often than not, these efforts are uninspired and insipid. Others worked just great, like the Frankie Goes to Hollywood 12" mixes, or Linkin Park's "Reanimation". And this is where I place INXS' "Original Sin".

The sound is rich, dynamic and powerful, and it helps to make this disc a real delight that you'll want to turn up. I recommend it if you want to hear some very unusual versions of INXS classics.

News Flash! Michael Hutchence has left the planet.

He was an awesome singer and a key component of INXS. No doubt about it. So why in Heaven's name do people keep reviewing this album as if INXS kicked him out of the band and tried to do it on their own? For all those "true believers" out there who claim they were fans since the dawn of the band, recall many albums had so-so songs. How about "Three Sisters" from Thieves or "Men and Women" off Welcome. For those same true believers, I'm sure they also remember that the band had many many remixes of their songs starting with Shabooh Shoobah and the Dekadance LP and Dance cassette. The band has always allowed other DJ's to remix their music.

With that said.....This album is just fine. There is nothing wrong with taking some of your best songs, giving them up to a modern day music writer and then having big name stars come in and record what you think is best. To Look At You, Mediate and Beautiful Girl sound great (Beautiful Girl always sounds better to me than the way it was recorded on Welcome. And while many people think the whole thing should have been done with JD, and as much as I think JD rocks it, I'd say Kavyen Temperley rocked To Look At You.

Lastly, to those folks saying the band should have let someone else record a tribute to them, it was done....with Beck and Record Club's cover of Kick.

I think this ablum is very good with maybe one or two misses. The challenge this record will face, as every INXS record after X faced, is poor marketing/management from those responsible for getting the music airplay. My last complaint is the lack of a U.S. release on iTunes and no way for the States to get Love Is.

Format: MP3 Music
Hard to believe it has been almost 14 years since INXS and the world faced the heartbreaking tragedy of the death of Michael Hutchence. It has shown to be a devistating blow for the group top to bottom. While they've tried to soldier on with J.D. Fortune with 2005's Switch, it still felt like it was missing heart. That has shown too for INXS, trying to soldier on with Michael's passing, and unfortunately they have been suffering. Instead of making new music, they've made the decision to pay tribute to their classic success with the 2011 album Original Sin. Yet the idea does seem to be interesting with the performances, including Beautiful Girl with Pat Monahan from Train, and Ben Harper doing the classic Never Tear Us Apart. The album sadly doesn't shine the way INXS chose to re-work their classics. Not only that, but there could've been more of their classics they could've made like Suicide Blonde from X, and the classic Need You Tonight. All in all, the feeling of the songs just doesn't feel like it shines, and that is sadly something INXS has accepted. If you're new to INXS, I would definitely recommend passing this up and instead buy INXS's greatest hits instead. Original Sin is worth tearing apart.

I can understand why Atco ultimately chose not to give this album a wide release here in the States...who would be buying it? Not counting 2005's SWITCH (and you SHOULD count's excellent!), INXS has pretty much been flying under the radar for almost a decade and a half. Younger audiences would think of them as a band their parents listened to. Much of their older audience had a problem with the addition of J.D. they were going to have to accept numerous artists taking on their favorite tunes?!? I don't think so!
However, for me, ORIGINAL SIN succeeds on a number of levels, simply by reminding me of a couple of things. First, a really great song can stand up to just about anything. Second, INXS is a really, really good BAND, no matter who's singing with them...Michael Hutchence, J.D. Fortune, Tom Jones or Madonna (O.K., those last two have yet to happen!). In fact, I think they've just gotten better with age!
The album opens with Jon Farriss' instrumental "Drum Opera." Crisp, clean and energetic, it's a nice way to "Kick" things off.
Sadly, it's at this point that the disc takes a dip, resulting in a four-song low point. "Mediate", with Tricky on lead vocals, has none of the hypnotic, magic!...of the original. Now it's just a bunch of rhyming words strung together with a heavier beat. O.K., but not great.
The same goes for "Original Sin", with Rob Thomas. At his best, Thomas can be his worst, he can be exceedingly over the top. Unfortunately, we get the latter here. Nor do the heavy dance rhythms help (Note to the've always been a rock band that you could frequently dance to, vs. a dance band who rocked!). DJ Yaleidys' rap and the uncredited trumpet are nice, though.
