Why are they getting Americans to replace Hutchy?

I agree with Khanada in saying that they should have changed their name. That is all I would've asked for. That is my major gripe about the whole JD Fortune saga (who I thought was a pretty good frontman, and I reckon Afterglow and Pretty Vegas are very cracking tunes).

To sensationalise this new series, they'll probably replace Hutchy with a black person or a female, would garner some extra publicity.

hahaha, i laughed when i read this article. inxs got pwned for picking such a jerk. maybe next time they'll pick a replacement using more traditional means or just hang it up and call it a day. i'm thinking the latter might be the better option because as much as i loved inxs, and still love their hutchence-era material, it seems to be a revolving door of lead singers.

Haha back to the drawing board! I kinda liked Afterglow although it was a bit too soft rock-ish. lol.

And I don't understand why "Kick" gets the most recognition. I listened to it again recently after ages and ended up skipping some tracks. "Welcome..." is their best album IMO.

Quite simply, because Kick was their biggest selling album, with their biggest hits on there. And it's a very solid album.

Pretty obvious.

I guess it's just me. Kick bores me now, especially stuff like New Sensation and Need You Tonight. Welcome To Wherever You Are was almost like their Achtung Baby in sound and so much more interesting.

I'm still think, and always will, The Swing and Listen Like Thieves are their best efforts. Those albums are just INXS to me. Those albums have the sound I identify with INXS. Plus, they're just fantastic albums!

Welcome To Wherever You Are is good, but spotty; there's a lot of hit-and-miss on that album.

i like their earlier stuff. i'd probably say underneath the colours is my favourite, wif shabooh shoobah in second. for their later stuff, i like x. though they don't have a bad album...other than afterglow (which i've never even listened to and just hate it out of obligation).

Yes.

I can't fault INXS for wanting to continue after Michael's death, but the Rock star: inxs thing really turned me off.
