Its their band, and at the end of the day, U2, INXS, Pearl Jam, REM, Metallica, Radiohead are all involved in the MUSIC BUSINESS.

That does not make it any less cheesy (at best) or repulsive (closer to the correct description).

Well after all that - it went to the only guy that actually seemed to be an INXS fan - so as much as I loathed JD, good on him. After seeing Mig play Angel (as an understaudy admittedly) in 'Rent' there was no way I was buying him as a rock star.

Now the hottest rumour - there has been rumblings of PopStar N'Sync - JC, Chris, Joey and Lance seek a replacement for Justin. Justin has made it clear his NSync days are over - but the million plus sales of the new Backstreet Boys album shows there is money to be made...

I know Mig is from Australia, but that fact should not influence people's vote for him. Its about who is the best singer for INXS and JD was a better singer than Mig and had more experience I believe when it comes to rock music. Mig had no previous experience in being in a rock band.

I look forward to the new album and tour.
hmmm, thanks for quoting my post and not actually replying to anything i said! and also twisting everything i said around to the point where your reply bears little resemblance to what i actually said. i don't recall stating that i preferred mig because he was from australia. i just happen to prefer mig over jd and marty.

i liked his singing style better. i liked his songwriting better than the other two, jd had an unfair advantage with "pretty vegas" as andrew wrote the music. not exactly an original piece. i suppose the writing on the wall for who would win this thing was visible longer than one might think. but that doesn't mean i have to continue to buy their music if i don't like their new lead singer.

Could you articulate why it's repulsive?

I lean more to the cheesey side.

I think JD was the better choice. I could tell by the final two performances. Marty seemed to be doing his thing over a backing band, any backing band. JD seemed to be a part of INXS. To me, that finally made up my mind.

Now, hopefully he won't piss the band off too much.

Soooo.... who's gonna buy the album?


I don't have any of their others, so I doubt I'll start now. Still it would be interesting to hear how the new work compares.

I don't know if I am interested in the album or not (only have the Greatest Hits) but Pretty Vegas will be available on iTunes on October 4. Definitely worth 99 cents.

How the band could actually use a "reality" show to find their new vocalist is beyond me !!
I will stick to my past Inxs albums for "listening pleasure"
As for the new Inxs ... I will NOT buy any of their future albums !!
And the reason is simple ... there was only ONE Inxs and Michael Hutchence was it !!
THE BEST EVER !!

Just when I thought this whole scenario couldn't get even more craptacular than it already was, I read this:

Quote:
The band plans to hit the studio immediately with producer Guy Chambers (Robbie Williams) to record "Switch."

INXS don't have much in the way of new musical ideas.
I would have thought they'd pick the guy who actually can write music for a song. If they follow the vibe of "Pretty Vegas" and the other song that they were tracking with the various singers, it is doomed. The new song with JD wasn't anything to get excited about either.

It's just a shame all around. Poor pool of talent to choose from, poorly chosen musical ideas. And then you toss in the whole idea and all of it's baggage and it gets worse.

They had a few different routes to go. Female singer, at least it's a different idea. An actual soul singer, instead of writing faux soul music and having some suburban white guy singing it. A frontman with actual rock chops, who can play and write his own music.

But they chose the guy who polished their ass the best. Not really all that surprising. Tim is a knob that needs to be polished.

It was probably the best way they could have gone at it commercially but silly me still beleives in the old fashioned way of letting the music do the talking and reap your own reward, good or bad.
