INXS (X) 1990





It was inevitable that X would fail to match that of their masterpiece in Kick in sales and accolades. But that's not to say that this is a bad album. Far from it. I think its an awesome album that has enough changes to not repeat themselves from Kick. It's gotta be very tempting for any band to want to just remake the same thing and cash in. They didn't. Getting the chance to revisit X again, I got to rediscover one of my all time favorite songs....by anyone. God, how I love Disappear. What a great  f u c k i n g  song!!! Great arrangement and amazing vocals. I started playing this album this morning, but the song has been playing over and over in my head. It happens everytime I listen to it. It's THAT good!

There are also a number of other stand out performances throughout the rest of the album Suicide Blonde is still and incredibly infectious song that holds up rather well all these years later. The Stairs is another great song that reminds me a lot of U2 musically. Even though Michael and Bono sound nothing alike, this could definitely be on any U2 album. Great melody. By My Side is ballad that doesn't sound like a typically ballad. It's a great showcase for Michael's range. Lately is a cool song and one I really like because if you know Billy Idol's vocal ticks and yelps that he adds to his own songs, then you know what you are getting here as  Michael does the same on this song. At times I think it's actually Billy doing a guest vocal on the track. Who Pays The Price is a really cool song that is anchored by a harmonica of all things. The chorus is pure sing-along. The same can be said for Know The Difference as well. On My Way has another great melody propelled by harmonica. Suddenly I need to learn how to play one. I think Hear That Sound is probably my runner up for Best Song on X.



Fave Songs: The Stairs, By My Side, Lately, Who Pays The Price, Know The Difference, Bitter Tears. On My Way, Hear That Sound and the MVP of course goes to Disappear. The album cover is okay. It lacks that originality of Kick for sure. I highly recommend X. I think it's hugely underrated by a lot of people and I just don't understand why. It's a great follow up, even if it doesn't quite reach the height of their last one. This is still a 5 Star album for me.
