Even though it encompasses only one disc, BEST OF INXS is a fairly comprehensive, 21-track offering that hits on virtually all of the group's well known high points and visits some more obscure material as well. In light of singer Michael Hutchence's tragic suicide, it's tempting to look on the Australian band's oeuvre through a gray mist, but that would be to deny everything Hutchence, the Farriss brothers, and the rest of the INXS boys were about. As this disc shows, they were a high-energy party band with one foot in Stones-influenced rock (Hutchence's strutting stage presence gave Mick Jagger a run for his money) and frothy, new wave-flavored dance-pop. From the darkly majestic early hit "The One Thing" through the heartfelt romanticism of "This Time" and the pumping, danceable "Listen Like Thieves" and "Devil Inside" INXS placed entertainment value above all else. BEST OF INXS is an effective showcase for the canny popcraft of a band whose career was stalled too soon.
