REVIEWS
Average points: 4.54 (Reviews: 50)
*****
grosser us- und uk-erfolg der australischen band im jahre 1986. im kontinentalen europa komischerweise kaum beachtet. schön rockig.
*****
Starker Rock-Pop ... # 5 in den USA, # 51 in GB im Frühling 1986.
****
Die guten Bewertungen überraschen mich schon etwas. Für mich ist das kein überragendes Stück, die Melodie nicht wirklich speziell, das Arrangement zu wenig aus einem Guss und darum klar keine 5.
*****
cool
****
Höre ich immer wieder gerne !
***
knapp gut
****
Der Bass bollert ganz gut.
****
Solide Ware aus den frühesten INXS-Zeiten. Später lieferten sie allerdings überzeugendere Werke nach.

live ganz stark!
*****
Ein schöner Song, den ich noch nicht kannte. Die Bassline ist ziemlich cool. Der Song ist ähnlich funky wie "Need You Tonight". 4.5
***
langweiliger radiotitel...
******
ich finds weder chaotisch und das saxophon is auch stark...was haben die da gehört??? klasse!!!
*****
groovt wahnsinnig.
*****
Yesss! Schhhpitze!
*****
mir gefällts auch
**
schwach
****
gute Spartenmusik
******
Sehr Gut!
******
Einer meiner Favorites von INXS aus den früheren Jahren. Der hat doch was, Leute!
***
Schräge Robert Palmer Nummer - aber der konnte das besser
*****
Starker Opener des "Listen Like Thieves"-Album. Mit diesem Trademark-Sound wurden sie bekannt.
*****
Muy buena.
******
gerade wegen solcher Songs bin ich nach langer, langer Zeit INXS-Fan geworden
hat diesen gewissen Drive dass man kaum ruhig bleiben kann
****
Lekker nummer uit hun beginperiode.
Pas op latere leeftijd leren kennen. Stevige rocksong.
*****
Peaking at #2 in Australia, 1985.
****
Intro gefällt mir hier nicht – der Rest rockt gut vorwärts – 4+…
***
mag ich eher nicht
*****
Klassischer Inxs-Song.

24.05.17:
Ist mir im Zwischenteil zu sehr "vermixt", sonst gäbe es die Höchstwertung. 5 => 5.

Good song but not there greatest
****
Agree with Chris A.
****
gut
****
lekker uptempo rocknummer van INXS afkomstig van hun album "Listen like thieves" uit 1985. Werd geen hit in Nederland
*****
▒ Gave drum- en saxofoonmuziek op deze track uit 1988 van "INXS" !!! Voordeel van de twijfel: 5 sterren ☺!!!
****
alright
******
6 stars
****
Cool track.
****
Very cool, the second best song from "Listen Like Thieves".

Da tut sich bei mir nicht viel, kann auch mit Inxs, bis auf ganz wenige Songs, nicht viel anfangen! Mittelmass!
*****
sehr gelungen

CDN: #21, 1986
USA: #5, 1986
*****
If INXS didn't have "Original Sin", then they still wouldn't have missed a beat with this - and this time the world was listening as "What You Need" went all the way to the US Top 5. A tight electronic groove showed off all the usual INXS elements, sax solos, guitar hooks, Michael's irresistible vocals, and that brilliant electric bass line. Awesome!
*****
Gimme dat funk ... now!
*****
Killer track...it rocks and swaggers with a sexuality that only INXS would become synonymous with through the late 80's...brilliant track...
******
Klasse Teil. Einer ihrer besten Songs.
*****
Funkiger klang selten ein Stück von ihnen und dem Sax
kommt hier natürlich eine Schlüsselstellung zu....

Ganz knappe 5.

(4.75)
***

....gefällt mir weniger...
******
uitmuntend goed
****
ordentliche Produktion
*****
Nice one.
*****
Yes
******
warum kannte ich den song vorher nicht

guter Song

unverkennbar INXS und keine Band klang 1985 annähernd so wie sie. Gewagt aber dann doch wieder typisch Mitte 80er

USA#5
