Editorial Reviews

Product Description

This Aussie band of MTV darlings broke through in the U.S. during the mid-'80s, and haven't stopped since! This album collects 17 of their best, including (the song line-up is "tentative") The Devil Inside; Need You Tonight; What You Need; New Sensation; Never Tear Us Apart; Suicide Blonde , and more, with two new tunes!

Amazon.com

In the wake of Michael Hutchence's tragic death, INXS's Greatest Hits seems sadly ironic in that it is, in part, a fitting eulogy and biography. No doubt about it, Hutchence gave the band its charisma, its sensuality, and also its funk appeal. So what if he couldn't dance? His phrasing and sense of timing were more than half of the rhythm behind "Need You Tonight," "What You Need," and "New Sensation." He even gave Mick Jagger a run for his money with "Devil Inside" and "Suicide Blonde." As a band, INXS were a finely honed machine, even from the beginning new-wave horns of "The One Thing" to the more orchestral "Never Tear Us Apart." The collection also contains two unreleased tracks, but, interestingly enough, the transcending and powerful "Don't Change" is nowhere to be found. --Steve Gdula

4.0 out of 5 stars Their third best collection. April 15, 2003
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
First of all, everybody needs some INXS in their collection, and unless your a fanatic, a "Hits" album will probably due. However, the newer "Best of INXS" is far superior to this one. It has 21 tracks remastered, still on one disc, and includes "This Time", "Bitter Tears", "The Gift", "Not Enough Time", and "Dont Change", all of which are missing from this U.S. greatest hits. Plus others. It also drops the few tracks that didn't need to be on this one. Of course, what IS on the "Greatest Hits" cd is all good stuff. If you really need an INXS fix, look at the 2-cd "Anthology". That has everything on it. More money though. Whichever set you chose, you need something to stick between your "U2" and "Cure" cd's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't do them justice May 16, 2001
By Jesse R
Format:Audio CD
When I see a review here saying that they were overrated, that's what happens when people just buy a 'greatest hits' package and judge them on that, and in this case it works against the band, this greatest hits doesn't do INXS justice. Sure most of the hits are here, but the true classic INXS songs are not. Songs that are missing from this are I send a message/Don't change/Burn for you/This time/Not enough time. If these songs were here instead of some of the weaker tracks, this would be a 5 star compilation.
Other songs that an INXS fan should check out are Good times (from the lost boys soundtrack - this song is a cover version, it's an awesome track) and Stay Young - one of my fav INXS songs. Some of the solo work from Hutchence that stands out is the effort from 'dogs in space' where he does a song called "rooms for the memory" - this is a haunting song, and one of my favs, also from batman forever he did a version of 'passenger'.
This is a CD for a casual fan, (has all their US hits from Kick, X etc) but there is so much more INXS out there, so don't think the best songs are all here and do them justice. I've heard the release of the compilation 'shine like it does' will be released later this year which will most likely be a good follow up to this package.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good start for... February 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This CD is a good place to start if you just started to listen to INXS (you're either just entering high school, or lived on mars for a while if this is the case). Sure, "Not Enough Time" "Don't Change" and a slew of other GREAT songs aren't on this album, but the rest of the songs totally make up for that. the 2 "new" tracks on the album are good too. they totally sum up inxs' sound, that there's no better place but a greatest hits album to put them on. don't forget to check out Michael Hutchence's solo album that just came out! it will blow you away. too bad he died so soon. he really was the driving force behind INXS.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for the casual fan June 18, 2000
Format:Audio CD
INXS is basically a pumped-up pub band, and this collection of their best-known hits shows it. If you ever heard it on the radio, you'll find it on here, from the catchy "The One Thing" to the funky "Need You Tonight" and the pounding "What You Need." The sadly departed Michael Hutchence does have a Jagger-like charisma, which often trancends the three-chords-and-a-beat tunes and sometimes treacly lyrics. I was pleased to see that "Disappear," the best song off the otherwise forgettable "X", is here as well. Diehard fans nitpick at the song selection, but casual fans like myself enjoy this immensely.

The band INXS as we know it pretty much ended with Michael Hutchence's death. This band was a powerhouse in the 80's with the stellar albums What You Need and Kick. Thier style was a unique mixture of rock, new wave and even a little bit of punk. I Need You Tonight, New Sensation, Suicide Blond..there are all here in thier original splendid form.
There are two great things about this album. It's mostly in chronological order from when it was relesed and the music stil sounds great today. Two, unless you are a hardcore INXS fan this will really be enough for you. I have this CD is my regular rotation of about 200 CD's and its always welcome when its number is called. The CD concludes with Beutiful Girl and then looses some steam with the last two songs but the hour preceding that is evenly strong.
Bottom Line: This is great album that most of the pre 20's crowd will find completely foreign. Trivia question: which band won best music video (MTV) of 1987....INXS - Need You Tonight.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a fitting greatest hits June 7, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Anyone who's followed INXS through the years should see right away that there are some huge holes in the song selection here. From the woefully represented "Welcome to Wherever You Are" album, the tracks Not Enough Time and Taste It are missing. And from the old days, the retro classic Don't Change isn't here either ! Is this a joke ? There are way too many easily forgettable tracks here in their place. Songs like Heaven Sent and The Stairs are hardly greatest hits worthy.Also the two "extra" songs on here are horrible and were probably collecting dust in someone's closet before being pulled out to fill up some cd space. This subpar collection was either put together with a blindfold, darts and a list of past songs, or the Atlantic records intern who got the job suffered a head injury shortly before.
