This album was released only one year after i was born, and so i never realised INXS' potential as a great band until many years later. 'Kick' is a fantastically made and presented album and shows just how good their music is. The one flaw found on this album would be the length, it lasts only 40 minutes, but within those 40 minutes you are fed some brilliant rock songs with the exception of one superb ballad, 'never tear us apart'. One of the best songs on the album 'guns in the sky' is very short and should have been made longer since it is an excellent track. Every song on here is worth listening to, both 'new sensation' and 'need you tonight'(their two biggest hits) are excellent guitar-driven songs, as well as the brilliance of 'devil inside' which is a personal favourite of mine. Michael Hutchence's wonderful vocals and the rest of the bands brilliant instrumentals make it an album that will stay in a persons collection for many years to come. A great display of rock at its australian-best.

It is very sad that with the loss of Michael Hutchence, there is also another loss, the loss of a great band - INXS. With amazing songs such as "Guns in the sky", "New sensation", "Devil inside", "Need you tonight", "Mediate" and "Never tear us apart" on this album, it's no wonder it is such a smash hit. There is such a range of songs included on this album, yet they all have that magical INXS feel to them. This is such a gem to be added to anyone's music collection!

With a Rock attitude (and in lead singer Michael Hutchence a lifestyle and death to match), pop sensibilities and knowing lyrics; INXS took the world by stormed in the late Eighties and early Nineties.

This breakthrough album from 1987 reads a bit like a Greatest Hits CD; with five top 10 hits including the seminal 'Need you Tonight', raucous 'Devil Inside', and emotive Rock Ballad 'Never Tear Us Apart'.
With a swagger and an arrogance that was pure Aussie, the band filled stadiums and sold records by the bucketload, and Hutchence's sad demise in the public eye sealed their Rock-star status once and for all.

Catchy, powerful pop with an edge; this is a pretty damn good collection of songs - and on Amazon it's a decent price.

Some records stand the test of time and "Kick" is certainly one of those. It is an iconic late 1980's rock album full of well composed ,melodic, guitar-driven anthems and ballads. However it is Hutchence's vocals with their intensity and urgency that are the highlight for me. Every track is a winner ; excellent songs like New Sensation, Devil Inside, Never Tear Us Apart, Mystify, Kick and Need You Tonight are all on "Kick" and they still sound great nearly 20 years later. INXS never seemed to be able to reproduce the quality of "Kick" on later albums, but this record remains one of the high points of commercial rock music from the 1980's.

Music from the eighties suffers a bum deal far too often but sometimes people need reminding about the bonafide, undisputed classics that this decade thrust upon us. Albums like Thriller, Born In The USA, Reckless, Brothers In Arms and Hysteria proved in both sales figures and public enthusiasm that it was indeed a decade of the biggest of the big. Kick is another album to add to that list. Much like those aforementioned works it worked the singles market into a frenzy with almost half the tracks being not only singles but BIG singles! The album was huge. Who saw it coming? Well, 1985's Listen Like Thieves should have been an indication that the blue touchpaper had been lit and was ready to fire. Producer Chris Thomas tidied up the sound, took away the doodling and injected a grand ol' dose of stadium rock into the equation. Reprising this role on Kick with a bunch of short sharp no-filler tunes to play with it was beyond doubt that this was a classic. Like a snowball rolling down a hill it picked up speed and just seemed to keep on going. It seemed like the album would never go away and well into 1988 it was still ringing around the world. Clocking in at 3 seconds under 40 minutes its dozen songs are a perfect combination of those 80s stalwarts - the ballads and the punch-the-sky rockers. Made for stadiums and radio airplay, you couldn't get away from this no matter how you tried. And why would you want to. This was music made to be enjoyed. It didn't need to take its clothes off or autotune itself to death to get the public to buy it - it just came in shook you about and got out before you could complain. Even today, it doesn't sound dated like a lot of 80s albums do. The standards of production, musicianship and songwriting made sure this was an album built to last.Read more ›

INXS threatened to break globally for years before this album and 'Listen Like Thieves' almost did it for them.
Finally, this album hit it big, especially state-side. Surprizingly fresh and funky for its time, this album does last well.
Positive and fresh, they didn't match the quality of this album again until 'Welcome to Wherever you are'. Unfortunately, by then the bulk of their fanbase had noticeably diminished and it never recieved the 'Achtung Baby' status it deserved.
However, this is a pleasant reminder of how good they were. Worth a listen!
