INXS (Full Moon, Dirty Hearts) 1993

A lot of fans point to Full Moon, Dirty Hearts as where the band began it's free fall. I think they are over exaggerating a bit. Sure, it's not in the same league of Kick and X. But it's not as bad as it's been made out to be. I will agree with the consensus that the hits are few and far between on this one. But I don't need or even crave radio friendly pop songs. I want interesting songs that go outside the box, something that pushes the band as well as the listener and we get that here.

One of the coolest tracks on here for me is Time. Why? It's basically INXS + Metal. Well, as close to Metal as you're gonna get from these guys. But it definitely is pushing them into a very Hard Rock mode and they pull it off very well. Love it. Now another Hard Rocking Song is Please (You Got That...), a duet with the one and only Ray Charles which is about the coolest pairing I've ever come across because of the song itself with Ray singing what doesn't really seem to be a song you'd expect him to be on. Both Ray and Michael OWN this hard rockin/swing song.

Close your eyes when you listen to Full Moon, Dirty Hearts and you'll immediately hear the influence of Pink Floyd. What makes this even more interesting is the fact that this is another duet with Chrissie Hynde.. I find nothing wrong with this song at all. Freedom Deep is definitely influenced by U2. There is no getting around it. It's straight in the vein of some of the biggest, most well known U2 anthems and it's way cool.

As you can tell by just the last 3 three songs I mentioned in how diverse the album is and I think that's why a lot of people have problems with it. Like I said, I've always liked the fact that INXS constantly reinvented themselves and this album is a good example of that.

Fave Songs: The Gift, Time, Please, (You Got That...), Full Moon Dirty Hearts, Freedom Deep and Kill The Pain. This album gets a Co-MVP award to Time and Please (You Got That....)
