INXS - Listen Like Thieves - 1985
Mind you , some people will disagree with me and point to earlier work as definitive. That's fine, there's no factual basis here, just my opinion on what I saw while growing up and reflecting back. In my personal opinion, in fact, everything that came before this album, pretty much sucked. I mean, the Swing?! What a turd.
Anyway, I stuck around for X and flinched.... Then I got Welcome To Wherever You Are and said "alright, now. that's enough..." and that was it. I heard Elegantly Wasted on the radio and wasn't even interested.
It's unfortunate that Michael is gone. It's always sad to immortal artists go before their time. Seems to be the nature of the business.
Played her straight here. Album, b-sides and a few extended mixes to fill up the 80 minutes. I am rather pleased with myself on that cover, though. Totally different feel to it. Let me know what you think
Let it shine, Mike...
