INXS (Listen Like Thieves) 1985






Listen Like Thieves has their monster hit What You Need which exploded the band into the stratosphere and became an MTV staple for years to come. As good as the song is, and it is a great song, it's not my favorite on the album. The album starts off solid with the first 3 songs: What You Need, Listen Like Thieves and Kiss the Dirt (Falling Down the Mountain). It was actually the Title Track that got me into the album because of the video and the song just sounded so cool, especially when it gets to the Chorus. Kiss The Dirt is another great song too.

But this isn't a perfect album in large part because I think even though Three Sisters is a decent instrumental, it doesn't belong here and it kind of throws the album off track a bit. Really not sure why it's even on there to begin with. But even with this slight misstep, the album definitely should be given a shot, especially if you want to hear what I think are the best songs here.

The best song here for me has always been Same Direction. The beat just get's me pumped to where I wanna dance....or bang my head. Great melody which showcases everyone perfectly. Great vocals too. Instant earworm for days. The other great song is This Time. I guess you can technically say it's a Ballad, but it doesn't sound like a typical ballad though. Shine Like It Does is another great song as well. There are a couple of fillers here, but even they sound pretty damn cool, especially One X One with Kirk Pengilly's Sax all over it.

Face Songs: What You Need, Listen Like Thieves, Kiss the Dirt, Shine Like It Does, Good & Bad Times, This Time and Same Direction which gets the album MVP award.

Sucks that no one has the videos for Listen Like Thieves and Kiss The Dirt on YouTube. Will dig around and post here if I can find any.
