Inxs

Here's the deal.

I've always known I liked INXS, and I've always known they were pretty good, but I never bought any records, if that makes sense.

But, last night I watched this special on VH1 Classic that showed a bunch of live clips from all over their career.

I practically fell in love with this band in the course of an hour. So, I'm just asking any of you INXS fans out there to lead me in the right direction with their work. Where should I start? What's their best work? Any great DVD's? Live albums? What should I AVOID for now?


Any advice would be great. Thanks.

Wow what a question.
Having grown up in their homeland you just bought every LP/CD.

But for me you can not go wrong with the following (just my music taste)

Kick
Welcome To Wherever You Are
Full Moon, Dirty Hearts
X
Elegantly Wasted

For DVD Im Only Looking*The Best Of

if you want to limit those down to just one or two, i'd say that that relating it to u2's career,
Kick is their Joshua Tree
Best of is their Best of
Elegantly Wasted is their Achtung Baby/Pop

decide from their what you'd like. 'Best of' is always a safe purchese

Thanks for the tips. I'll go and start checking out your suggestions and see where to go form there.

I watched that last night as well. I loved that band and I am disappointed they are replacing Michael Hutchence through reality tv No matter how they try they will never be the same. They should've atleast changed their name from INXS to something else. Anyway back to your question I recommened the best of album it has everything, especially track 12 the stairs

Another vote for Kick and X.

Full Moon Dirty Hearts was a bit ordinary in comparison from what I remember, although maybe I should give it another try after all these years. Haven't heard much of the others, only the singles airplay.

Buying one of the Greatest Hits albums is tempting as they have heaps of great songs spread across many albums.. so, why not buy them all?

But for starters go with what MsMofoGone recommended and you won't be disappointed. To fill in the best of the rest check out the Shine Like It Does 2 CD Anthology.

Have fun!

Get the UK import of The Best of. Has more tracks. Their 2 best are Welcome to Wherever You Are (their AB) and Kick (their JT). Also recommended are Shabooh Shoobah, The Swing and Listen Like Thieves. The other LPs are good but patchy IMO. BTW Michael Hutchence's eponymously titled LP has him duetting with Bono on the track Slide Away. It was a half finished track that Bono added vocals and lyrics/music to later after MH's death.

Enjoy!!!

listen like thieves!!!!!!!!! it's my favourite of theirs. i didn't know if that came off in my previous post or not.

my second favourite of theirs is underneath the colours but it's rather hard to come by BUT...if you can find a 2 disc compilation set called "stay young" BY ALL MEANS...pick it up!!!! it's awesome

It's still in print - it's an Australian import. It covers 1979-82. I can get/give more details if needed
