This by far is the best of the greatest hits put out by INXS.
STPfan
Just know as a huge fan of INXS, even if you have that Greatest Hits from '94, you should still buy this.
J. Humphreville
I am a big fan of 60's and 70's classic rock, and INXS is one of the few 80's era bands that I like.

"Inxs - Shine Like it Does: The Anthology (1979-1997)" is the most comprehensive compilation of Inxs' portfolio of music that is available in a single package. Inxs is a band that rose to international stardom in the 1980s - producing some outstanding creative work. Although Inxs doesn't have a true "boxed set", this two disc compilation provides 42 tracks of Inxs music complete with rare tracks and a 60 page booklet that provides a wealth of information of the band.

One fact that I find amazing about Inxs is that this six member band stuck together from their formation in the late 1970s through Michael Hutchence's untimely death in 1997. During this period, the band would release 10 studio albums, 1 Greatest Hits album, and 1 Live album. This has allowed the band to meld together and grow professionally. Much of this is due to the fact that three band members are brothers: Andrew Farriss (Keyboards), Jon Farriss (Drums), and Tim Farriss (Guitar). The other three members also stuck tightly with the band the whole way. These members include: Michael Hutchence (Lead Vocals), Garry Gary Beers (Bass), and Kirk Pengilly (Guitar and Sax). Hutchence - known for his long hair and theatrical performances in concert often gets the most publicity. But the remaining five members all make major contributions from a musicianship standpoint. In addition, Hutchence is not just eye candy - he plays a key role in the songwriting. The 60-page booklet provides a terrific insight into the history and dynamics of the band and how they endured during this time.

I think Inxs' musical style can be considered an offshoot of the Punk and New-Wave movements of the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Ok, so I just reviewed the new Best of Compilation and thought I would include a quick review of this anthology because it really is better than the Best Of. You definitely get more for your money with this two disc set. It includes a nice booklet with some comments by the surviving band members. It also includes a couple of great oldies which are good for laughs like Simple Simon and We Are the Vegetables. They are by no means classics, but they give a good spot to reflect on the group then and the group at their end. As I've mentioned in the Best of Review, the lone setback is the missing Mediate. I always thought of Need You Tonight and Mediate as a Medley of Sorts, and it is a shame they are missing. However, compared to the original greatest hits, this is wonderful. It includes songs I felt were missing such as Disappear, Not Enough Time, Don't Change while adding some songs that give an interesting perspective, like Please (with Ray Charles). It also includes songs from their last album (Elegantly Wasted) which makes this album a nice perspective of INXS's complete career. I would definitely consider this album before either of the other single disc hits collections.

I've been an INXS fan for 20 years; from their humble beginnings on the pub/rock circuit in Sydney to their world domination in the late 80's - early 90's. I'm especially fond of the albums that stretched through the mid 80's: Shabooh Shoobah (1982); The Swing (1984) and Listen Like Thieves (1986).

Having experienced INXS first-hand live in concert a number of times and living through their albums, I simply recommend this package of INXS greatest songs over the other two: 'Greatest Hits' and 'The Best of INXS'.

This anthology contains all the tracks from their first two albums that are considered important; especially "Just Keep Walking" and "The Loved One" (which was later redone on the album Kick), which weren't included on the Greatest Hits CD. This is the equivalent of leaving off, say, "I Will Follow" on a U2's greatest hits album. I find that this CD covers the early 'New Wave' period of INXS much better than other compilations along with the period of the above-mentioned albums. For example, the Greatest Hits only begins from the album Shabooh Shoobah and also doesn't include INXS' best and most well-known song "Don't Change" from this album, whereas this anthology contains 5 tracks from Shabooh Shoobah. Also, 'The Swing' and 'Listen Like Thieves' are very well represented on this anthology; having no notable omissions.

The later albums are also covered well on this anthology with the only omissions being the single from 'X' "By My Side" and the second single from 'Welcome to Wherever You Are' "Baby Don't Cry". These two songs are not on the 'Greatest Hits' CD but 'The Best Of INXS' CD has "By My Side". Another possible inclusion could have been "Mediate" from 'Kick'.

To summarise:

From the album 'INXS': Just Keep Walking.

INXS released a greatest hits collection in 1994, but it failed to cover all of their albums. This collection is perfect for any INXS fan. It has at least one song from each album or EP and even includes some single and soundtrack releases. The two CD's show how the band changed with the music trends and the order of the songs serve as a timeline for popular music from the early 80's to the late 90's.
Their hits are of course included, but the lesser known songs really show how great this band was. As the first CD plays on you hear the band getting it together and into a good groove throughout the songs. The material made after Kick really stands out and proves that it was such a shame that people stop paying attention to the band in the 90's because they always made terrific music. You can feel overwhelmed and spoiled by all of the material.
The booklet is an added bonus that gives a history of the band and explains each song on the collection. By reading this you get a greater appreciation for the band. Overall this is one of the best collections of a band ever made and a fitting tribute to a great or way too often underrated band.
