INXS: The Swing (1984)
I became an admirer of INXS when this record came out, but that admiration never really stuck. My enthusiasm just died upon subsequent releases. I will make this bold statement: INXS has released only one good record, The Swing. The rest is forgettable. I know, lots of people will disagree with me. I think I still have a copy of this on CD as well.
My LP is a US pressing. with a "Special Limited Edition Album Cover." I have never been able to determine what is special about it, other than the fact that it is a gatefold and some others were not. The centrepiece on the record is Original Sin, but music fans might know I Send a Message, and Burn for You.
