INXS: Original Sin

Really want to hear Ben on this, Tricky as well. INXS was an amazing band, live as well as in the studio. I encourage folks to give them a listen.

WOW! This is really a terrible album compared to the greatness of the originals. It seems like they tracked Ben's vocals to a different instrumental track.

I used to be a big INXS fan in the late 80's/early 90's. I was fortunate enough to see them live on at least 3 occassions all with Hutchence. If this is their tribute to Michael Hutchence consider it an epic failure. Not the best choice for songs (where is Need You Tonight, or Suicide Blonde, or even the One Thing?) but the inerpretations are piss poor. Tricky doing Mediate was alright, and Ben Harper doing Never Tear Us Apart were tolerable at best. I usually dig a decent tribute album but this is just awful. Don't waste time even listening much less buying. Hearing those tracks honestly made me sad.

Listen to Beck's Record Club version of Kick. It is much better.
