INXS (Kick) 1987

Every single song on Kick.....kicks ass! This album is so damn good and so diversified across the board. There are no songs on here that repeat themselves and yet as a whole the album flows seamlessly from one song to the next. This is an album that I definitely didn't have a problem double dipping on back in 2002. I know that they released this one again as a Deluxe Edition a couple years after that which I definitely want to pick up for myself.

As great as the initial release of Kick is, the 4 "new" songs that are basically demo's and alternate version are insanely good. They don't even sound like demo's at all. They are so good that they should have been released during the first pressing of the album. The album Kicks off with 3 awesome songs in Guns In The Sky, New Sensation and Devil Inside. Three songs that couldn't more different from one another in tone and execution, which is sign of things to come in how different all the songs are.

Guns In The Sky is awesome with its heavy reliance on the drums to propel the song. Hard rocking political song.

New Sensation is a brilliant Pop song that has a great groove. The riff itself belongs in the Hall Of Fame!! One of the best party songs ever!

Devil Inside is a very moody song that slowly builds up over time that you yourself end up singing along too because its just a great release.

Need You Tonight/Mediate couldn't be further apart from each other both sonically and lyrically and yet they both work increbily well together.

The Loved One is a great cover version of The Loved Ones. Good rock song anchored by Andrew Ferris on Piano/Keyboards.

Wild Life is probably the most overlooked song on the album. Probably could be considered a filler track, but one that I always listen too.

Never Tear Us Apart is just an amazing song from start to finish just in the arrangement itself where the Violins pretty much drive the riff, the vocals by Michael Hutchence is simply brilliant. A shot straight to the gut and the Sax Solo by Kirk Pengilly is just awesome for how short it is.

Mystify is another fantastic song with a great melody that hooks you in for days. Earworm.
Kick is definitely a straight ahead rocker that tends to play it by the book. Nothing too groundbreaking but one that's sure to get your feet moving.

Calling All Nations has a great riff with the song once again being carried by the drumming of Jon Farriss. Insanely addictive.

Tiny Daggers is kind of a departure in sound and execution and is very reminiscent of a lot of early Bon Jovi songs with respect to the vocals. Great song.

Move On (Guitar Version) is just one of the coolest, most atmospheric songs on the album. When they say it's the "Guitar Version", that's exactly what it is with it's feeback that envelopes the song. A+

Jesus Is A Man is definitely a song that departs from the rest of the album.  I think Michael's vocals here is super cool with the subtle use of acoustic guitars that just builds and builds by the end of the song. Great track and one of my faves here.

Fave Songs: All of 'em!! I don't even know how to even pick an MVP here because each song is damn memorable and leaves me wanting to play each one over and over. But lets see if I can actually come up with 5 MVP's just for the sake of making me work here.  New Sensation. Devil Inside. Need You Tonight/Mediate.Never Tear Us Apart. Mystify. Move On (Guitar Version). Jesus Was A Man. Okay, that's more than 5.

Very cool Album cover, front and back that gives everyone in the band it's own spotlight. It's creative and original. Also, if you are one of the few that never really watched any of their videos, you're doing yourself a huge disservice by not watching them. You owe it to yourself to check out some of the most original, creative and groundbreaking music videos (at the time). There videos are over 25 years old and they STILL kick pretty much every single "new" video's ass that's currently on the air. You have all the video links below so you have no excuses not to check them out.
