Über 30 Millionen Platten weltweit haben die Australier verkauft, sie spielten nahezu 5000 Shows vor Millionen von Fans in über 40 Ländern. Ihr Katalog beinhaltet eine Vielzahl an weltweiten Hits.
Die 10 Studio-Alben (bis 1997) dieses wunderbaren Backkataloges, der lange Zeit nicht verfügbar war, wurde nun soundtechnisch neu aufgearbeitet und wird zu einem besonders guten Preis angeboten.
Für alle Fans, die sofort das komplette Paket wollen, gibt es das hochwertige Collectors Boxset mit allen 10 Alben.
Für die, die von den Australiern bis jetzt nur eine best of compi haben und mehr wollen, allemal ein Schnäppchen. Die 5-Sterne Bewertung ist hier für das Preis/Leistunsg Verhältnis zu verstehen...
Seit dem frühen Tod des Lead-Sängers sind sozusagen auch die angeblich "schwächeren" Alben längst rehabilitiert, weil man einfach erkennen muss, welches Frontmann- und Gesangs-Kaliber hier einen, ja sozusagen für die Szene nicht ganz "untypischen", frühen "Rockstar-Abgang" gemacht hat.
Das Remastering ist meines Erachtens nach hervorragend und ein wahrer Hörgenuss! Ein wirklich gelungenes Paket für INXS- und überhaupt für Musik-Fans würde ich sagen.
Mit gutem Klang hat das rein gar nichts mehr zu tun. Mein Tipp, um seine Inxs Sammlung zu komplettieren, einfach die alten CDs gebraucht kaufen. Da gibt es auch keine Bonus-Tracks (wie hier) und der Klang ist deutlich besser!
Schade, hatte mich sehr auf die Box gefreut. Der eine Stern ist für das beschriebene "Remaster". Die Musik liegt zwischen 4-10 Sternen.

This collection to my understanding was released in Australia, their home turf, and not widely released or available otherwise. For anyone who likes INXS's older stuff, and even their more recent studio albums, you can't go wrong with this awesome set. I had to go to Amazon UK to even find out what was contained in this set. Doing further price comparison, I found better prices elsewhere in Europe and ended up buying from Amazon Spain for around $7.00 USD per CD when it was all said and done, so a relative bargain.
This set is providing many hours of enjoyable listening. You won't go wrong by indulging in this set if you like INXS at all.
What extras are there? None. This box set is a straight catalogue re-release. No bonus tracks and no special editions of the classic albums. I must admit to being a bit hesitant to purchase this set due to the lack of extra content of which there is plenty to be found. The band's first two albums, INXS and Underneath The Colours were remastered in 2002 and compiled for Australia in the awesome double cd set "Stay Young 1979 -1982 (Deluxe) [Australian Import]". This collection is worth owning for any serious fan as it contains an entire cd of early live tracks, demos, b-sides and four 1992 re-recordings from the "Full Moon Dirty Hearts" sessions. These two early albums sound much the same in this new box set as they did in 2002 and that's not a bad thing. All good so far.
It was the lure of hearing my favourite albums, 1982's "Shabooh Shoobah", 1984's "The Swing" and the before the storm stomper that was 1985's "Listen Like Thieves" that led me to relenting and purchasing the box. I'm so glad I did. These three albums have not been touched since first being transferred to digital master for cd in the late 80's and were long overdue for a tweak. They sound amazing in this set and are almost worth the price of the box (which is much cheaper in my part of the world).
Next up is "Kick" which first went deluxe here "Kick" in 2004. It is now available as a 25th Anniversary "Kick 25 (Deluxe Edition)" two cd package with a whole disc of extra tracks or as a four disc box set "Kick 25 [Super Deluxe Edition]" which contains a third audio disc and a dvd. If you love this album I thoroughly recommend the 2 disc deluxe. The Super Deluxe is strictly for hard core fans and is not as complete as it should be. Kick was also part of a three album remaster series compiled by Rhino Music USA in 2002, for that edition click here "Kick". That reissue series also included "X" & "Welcome to Wherever You Are". They were great remasters all with bonus tracks and good quality booklets. Those remasters are not included in this set as the INXS catalogue is now distributed through Universal Music world wide (Rhino is part of Warner Music). These three albums were huge all over the world, especially in the UK and Europe and are essential chapters in 80's & 90's pop music. Unlike the USA, the rest of the world stayed on board after Kick with X and Welcome To Wherever You Are. All three have been remastered again in 2011 but unfortunately minus all the bonus tracks.
The last two albums in this box "Full Moon Dirty Hearts" and "Elegantly Wasted" have also been given a nice overall boost. Full Moon always sounded muddy and overproduced when it was originally released in 1993. It's a forgotten album in their catalogue and was largely ignored in a world dominated at the time by dance music and Seattle grunge. The new master has scraped away some of the mud and let a good album rise to the surface. There's some great tunes here. The in your face guitar driven angst of "The Gift". The funk stomper "Please (You Got That..)" with Ray Charles joining Hutch on the microphone followed by the swampy blues of the title track "Full Moon,Dirty Hearts" featuring Chrissie Hynde from The Pretenders as guest vocalist.
Finally there's "Elegantly Wasted". I know the title track sounds like they're trying to re-write/capture the feeling of "Need You Tonight" but I think it's a distinct sound this band pioneered and that track is always going to be in their dna so why not. If given a listen you'll be pleasantly surprised as to how good this album is. Other standout tracks here are "Don't Lose Your Head', "Everything" and "Searching".
I'm mostly glad in this instant download world we now live in that these remasters have been given a physical release. I know I sound old fashioned but I like reading the who's who behind the mixing desk, who wrote the words etc not to mention having the lyrics in front of me as I sing along. All albums are presented in plastic jewel cases and have faithful reproductions of their original booklets and artwork. Even the disc labels are vintage 80's. All in all Giovanni Scatola has done a nice job on these remasters and apart from the lack of bonus content I am suitably impressed. I'm sure Hutch is looking down smiling knowing that we still hear his songs on the radio, the tv, in the car, your home hi-fi, spinning out of a DJs speakers etc etc etc.....
