Wenn man dedenkt wie populaer insgesamt die songs einer LP im radio sind, sprechen wir ueber das am meisten gespielte musik album aller zeiten in Hellenischen radio.
Mit All Time Classics wie Never tear us apart & Need you tonight und mit top hits wie Devil inside, Mystify & New Sensation koennte es auch nicht anders sein.
Welche die anderen 9 LP klassiker im Hellenischen radio,
so fern es den air-play ihrer songs betrifft sind?

In alphabetischer reihe:

Brothers in arms-DIRE STRAITS / 1985
(Brothers in arms, Money for nothing, So far away, Walk of life, Why worry)

Fly like an eagle-STEVE MILLER BAND / 1976
(Fly like an eagle, Rock’n me, Serenade, Take the money & run)

Joshua tree-U2 / 1987
(I still haven’t found what I’m looking for, Where the street have no name, With or without you)

Let’s dance-DAVID BOWIE / 1983
(China girl, Cat People (Putting out fires), Let’s dance, Modern love)

Out of time-REM / 1991
(Losing my religion, Low, Near wild heaven, Radio song, Shinny happy people, Texarcana)

Rumours-FLEETWOOD MAC / 1977
(Chain, Dreams, Go your own way, Oh Daddy)

Reckless-BRYAN ADAMS / 1985
(Heaven, Run to you, Somebody, Summer of ’69)

Slippery when wet-BON JOVI / 1986

und ausenseiter

Born in the USA-BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN / 1984
(Born in the USA, Cover me, Dancing in the dark, I’m on fire, My hometown)

genial
*****
Wohl insgesamt das stärkste INXS-Album, aber für die Höchstnote müsste das Album ohne Fehl und Tadel sein. Davon kann keine Rede sein! "The Loved One", "Wild Life", "Mystify", "Kick", "Calling All Nations" und "Tiny Daggers" sind lediglich ordentliche Album-Tracks (obwohl "Mystify" unerklärlicherweise als letzte Single ausgekoppelt wurde) und allenfalls gehobener Durchschnitt. Dem gegenüber stehen natürlich der gelungene, rockige Opener "Guns In The Sky", das fetzige "New Sensation", das vor allem in den Strophen zu überzeugen weiss, das nette "Devil Inside", die geniale, nahtlos ineinander übergehende Doppelpackung "Need You Tonight/Mediate" und das schlichtweg phänomenale "Never Tear Us Apart". Reicht für eine knappe 5.
*****
4.5 plus. Ihr Welterfolg, ihr bestes.

Ich hatte mir mehr erwartet!
Zum einen sind da wahrlich richtige Kracher/Superhits drauf, aber doch auch etliche Füller, deshalb nur 4 Sterne: die Hälfte der Songs verdient 5-6, die andere leider nur 2-3. Naja, vielleicht editier ich das nochmel irgendwann.
******
wohl das beste inxs album...ganz klar eine 6...nur "kick" selbst fällt meiner meinung nach ab...alles andere sind kracher!!!
*****
Da bin ich geteilter Meinung. Auf keinen Fall die Bestnote da doch einige Füller drauf sind imho. Höhepunkte für mich: "Never Tear Us Apart", "Mystify" und "Tiny Daggers". Ganz knappe 5*.
****
Mhhhh.. durchzogen. Zu Beginn schon eher schwach, ab 'Never Tear Us Apart' kommen dann die starken Songs.
*****
Jeder Song auf diesem Album rockt. "Guns In The Sky" ist das ideale Intro für dieses Album. "Need You Tonight" ist der wahrscheinlich bekannteste Titel der Gruppe INXS, aber mein persönlicher Favorit ist dann der darauffolgende Track namens "Mediate". Auch die Ballade "Never Tear Us Apart" weiss zu überzeugen. Ein paar der Songs sind dennoch mehr Albumfüller als hitverdächtig.
******
Excelente album pop. Las mejores canciones de INXS están incluidas en él.
******
Mijn eerste kennismaking met INXS in 1987, het geboortejaar van mijn zoon.
Een pleiade aan hits en geweldige songs.
Dit is een dijk van een plaat!
*****
ein nahezu exzellentes album

kein song ist schwach ausgefallen

die songs haben in der zwischenzeit kaum an klasse eingebüsst

neben need you tonight und new sensation finden sich auch andere klassiker

kult

Whether or not this is INXS's finest hour is one to be debated. It does seem to be the definitive one if anything though. Commercial success is somewhat of a major factor to this; impressively the first 4 singles all went top 10 in the US. But at the same time, there's a level of accessibility to this that makes it more approachable. They could perhaps be accused of having a bit much filler at times, and it's true here too, but it's not as detrimental to the final product in this case.

The album is of course buoyed by the hit singles which have become well amongst the most recognised in INXS's catalogue. Really it's hard to say no to the album that houses "Never Tear Us Apart", "Need You Tonight", "Devil Inside" and "New Sensation". It was the first album of theirs I ever was exposed to from front to back, so I do have some bias, but this would be an obvious starting point for going into their discography. For the most part, the energy from the album is hard to deny. 4.8

5 stars
*****
Alles unter 5 Sternen wäre ein Hohn.
******
This is the big one...the group's tour de force...everything in the bands catalogue is measured up to this album. It is sheer 80's pop brilliance, near perfect song writing, musicianship, production...everything...the stars aligned for this one.

The entire album is catchy, memorable and branded with indelible hooks. Songs such as "New Sensation", "Never Tear Us Apart", "Devil Inside" "Need You Tonight" and "Mystify" are so deeply ingrained in our consciousness that sometimes we forget how brilliant they are. Even their remake of their own cover "The Loved Ones" stands up with the original 60's track.

This outing also displayed the groups diversity in musical styles; shifting through pop/rock, rock & roll, funk, dance-pop and dance-rock with undeniable ease, as if it was second nature too them.

And on a lesser note, this was a commercial smash hit worldwide....and sent the group into the stratosphere of fame and fortune, massive stadium gigs and eventually self indulgence.

Without doubt this is INXS' opus, they would never again re-capture the dizzying heights that this album reached musically. A true Australian masterpiece and an absolute classic of the 1980's on a world scale. If your only going to purchase one album by this group, then this is the one.

A lot believe this is their holy grail in terms of albums but to me it falls pretty short of the expectations it's got after the amazing peak that is 'Never Tear Us Apart.
Production wise it's a masterpiece of Australian rock/pop and will ultimately be remembered as INXS at their best.

51/72
*****
...sehr gut...
*****
It's fair to say that this is one of the most popular and well-known Australian albums of all time. Featuring some of their biggest hits, 'Kick' also contains a number of more obscure tracks that I'm not so familiar with surprisingly. Nothing here below par though and it's really great overall. 4.5
*****
A very strong album with plenty of standout singles and some cool album tracks as well.
****
War in meiner spät-Teenie Zeit mal eins meiner Lieblingsalben, heute
sind mir leider etliche der Songs ein wenig verleidet.Rein objektiv
betrachtet sicher eine knappe 5 wert, aber für mich aus heutiger Sicht
nur noch eine gefühlte....

4 ++
****
I enjoyed this quite a bit. This contains most of INXS's most iconic and enjoyable tracks and it's easy to see why this was such a big hit. Need You Tonight and New Sensation are both fantastic pop/rock tracks, while Never Tear Us Apart is a soaring ballad and my favourite of their singles. There are a couple of duds on the album, but I liked the majority of it and found it to be a nice, easy listen. 4.1/6.
