A great display of rock at its australian-best
on 10 November 2001
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.
