Me: "A decent band during the 80's, but are now pretty much a boy band that sucks."
Later, the band fell out of favor with the rise of the grunge movement and changing tastes. Their 1992 album, Welcome to Wherever You Are, was brilliant and diverse, and ultimately one of their best, but sold poorly. Full Moon, Dirty Hearts in 1993 did not do well in sales or among critics. They released one more album before Michael Hutchence's death in 1997, Elegantly Wasted, which is a disappointment overall. Michael's death had a profound and lasting effect on the band.
They kept playing into the early 2000s with guest singers, and finally decided on a new singer, JD Fortune, through the show Rock Star INXS. His voice is similar in many ways to Hutchence but no one can replace Hutch's singing and songwriting talent, sexiness, or immeasurable charisma.
ps: wtf were the members of inxs thinking with that atrocious reality show? They should be ashamed of themselves.
guy 1: "what the fuck is this shit"
guy 2: "i believe it's inxs"
guy 1: " well change the station before i neck myself"
