Fans have long hailed INXS for the soulful intensity of its live shows, but the rap on the Australian sextet has been that it makes uninteresting, one- dimensional studio albums. Recently, the group has aimed for complex studio creations in the style of U2's Zooropa or Achtung Baby, and the result has been uninteresting but multi-dimensional. It's a minor improvement, and though Full Moon, Dirty Hearts is better than many of the group's recordings, it isn't as good as the weirder 1992 release, Welcome to Wherever You Are. Ambitious, bizarre productions can't mask the fact that INXS has been riding the same groove since 1981, and it's more than a little bit tired. --Jim DeRogatis

I wouldn't say that this is INXS' best album, because there's Kick. But strangely, when at times when I long to hear their music, this is the album I miss most of all.
At the time where U2 had seemingly thrown out their rock sound and reinvented themselves, INXS to a certain extent did the same with Welcome to Wherever You Are. I thought that was a strange album. Without having gone through Kick and X, it would be a hard album to swallow. But as a fan who is more likely to give it a second listen, I found it to be a fantastic album.
This album came along, and their popularity plummeted. They became labelled 'has-been'. But I listened to it consistently, and found it to be the most touching of all their albums. For me, this was probably the most soul baring of all the other records. The edgy greasy sound was a probably their response to the grunge rage, but worked perfectly. The stripped down production also made the songs as they were meant to be: just songs.
Sometimes fans don't ever want their bands to grow. People dismissed Pop (U2). People will dismiss Full Moon, Dirty Hearts (well, see how many reviews this got), but I think this would probably be one album Michael Hutchence held close to his heart.

By C.S.
"Full Moon, Dirty Hearts" represents INXS's second outing since the monster success of "Kick" in 1988. The success of the campaign of that record was built by a steady progression of airplay and new fan base that increased and co- opted with the loyal die- hards.
Oddly enough, the bus emptied quickly upon the following release,"Welcome To Wherever You Are" and one would be hard pressed at this juncture to find knowledge and interest in 'Full Moon"

Upon dissecting this collection of songs, the whittled down approach taken is nothing new or earth -shattering as evidenced on "Days Of Rust" or "Time, but any chance of boring continuity setting in is quickly eliminated on the U2 meets Aussie power -funk rhythm of "The Gift". With it's heavy drum sound and crunchy,fuzzy toned riff,this qiuckly ascends up the INXS list as one of their better moments,accentuated by Hutchence's lounge chair- rock star delivery
The almost too riffy vocal run- on of "Make Your Peace" is saved by a nice beat and Hutchence's un- canny ability on more than one occasion to make something out of nothing which he pulls off once again, with the aid of some decent guitar work.
Sometimes a weapon can be over-used,and upon taking in the first few bars of "I'm Only Looking",it sounds like a repeat of "Kick" rhythm - guitar wise, but takes a turn for the better as a soaring synth swoops in a the end of each verse - punctuating the lyrical points being made.
Then the old school meets new Aussie funk swagger as blues/ soul legend Ray Charles drops in to combine efforts. Both he and Hutchence are comical and entertaining with the line, Hutchence chiming in with the line "Please..

Okay why does this album deserves a five star rating? Every song on this album really does rock. The Gift is one of the best alternative rock songs ever. Give it a listen to and I'm sure you'll agree. Make your Peace has great gutiar and some great lyrics. Then Time has a driving beat with a universal message. Cut your Roses down has a nice pop beat that reminds me of Elegatly Wasted. I thought this was a great album to follow Welcome. This is a classic INXS album just as good as Kick, just not quite as commercial. But who cares about that. It's a short album that you can just throw in and rock to from track 1 through 12. The video for The Gift was excellent as well. With lyrics like "The gift you gave is going to last forever" is very fitting when, in the video, they show Jesus Christ being curcified. His sacrifice for all of mankind is still and forever giving. Just ask him into your heart today for salvation. That's the best gift one could ever recieve.

A Glimmer of INXS' full potential June 22 2005
By Erik J. Malvick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was recently blessed to have rediscovered this CD in my collection. I think many people shun this CD and almost anything post X, but this really shows a glimpse of a side of INXS that had never come out, and unfortunately wouldn't come out again.

Straight up, this was INXS attempt at moving into the alternative/grunge sound of the 90's. While it didn't fully succeed, and it was sadly overlooked, this is a great album. In it, we see a lot of experimentation and creativity from the group in one big jump. They blended a lot of the popular sounds of the era into their own and created an album that was all their own.

This is not an album to buy if you are just getting into INXS based on their hits. You won't find any true hits here. People were accustomed to what had become the standard INXS sound, and this album was shunned... even by me. However, there are some fantastic songs here.

If one can look at this album as something that is not INXS they will find an album full of excellent lyrics, music, and vocals. The album isn't very coherent, but I find that I don't have to skip any tracks to enjoy it. The music ranges from a hard rock beat in songs like Time, The Gift, and Make Your Peace to ballad like tempos with Full Moon Dirty Hearts and Freedom Deep. Freedom Deep is great because it builds to a nice climax with a slow crescendo that grows in fullness and loudness. The title track previously mentioned includes a great duet between Michael Hutchence and Crissy Hynde, and Please is a duet with the great Ray Charles.

If you like INXS, and you don't mind something that is quite a bit different from anything you're used to, put yourself to the challenge of Full Moon, Dirty Hearts.... Just be sure you give it a chance and don't give up on it too easy. I regret that it took be 10 years to rediscover its greatness.

INXS GET FUNKY AND IT WORKS! July 22 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a brave and daring album from one of Australia's premier rock bands.It is as good if not better than their successful "Kick" album. This is a vibrant foray that covers all spectrums of music.It is funky, moody and rock n roll. The album showcases the musical maturity of the band along with the power,passion and versatility of Michael Hutchence. There are many standout tracks including the duet with Ray Charles on'Please',the down and dirty 'Full Moon'and the funky 'Make your Peace'to name a few. It is an album that should be in any INXS collection.

Running on empty. March 30 2010
By Lord Aäkon Këëtrëh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Before I go on. I consider myself to be an INXS fanboy since 1985. So I feel like I came into the band as they hit their peak that year all the way up to 1992. Everything the band did during that period was their nothing short of great. I remember hearing Suicide Blonde on the radio and seeing the video on MTV before the cd came out in September 1990. I was floored by how great that song was and still is! I still recall how much I was anticipating that album (X). People bought it and it did well, but not in the same way that Kick did. That was sort of expected. So the fairweather fanbase left and in 1992 INXS released their best album 'Welcome To Wherever You Are'. But in 1991, grunge music came in style and totally changed the music scene and pretty much made almost anything 80's related obsolete. Michael Jackson if he were still alive and had any sense in his head would attest to that.

Bands like Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Dinosaur Jr.,Jesus Jones, EMF (I hate mentioning the last two) & Shoegaze music were all what people listened to back then, especially the younger generation bored with 80's excess and big hair. Unfortunately X wasn't a good enough album for people to care about Welcome To Wherever You Are afterwards. INXS reinvented themselves and made their best album about a year too late in the music industry. How that album went unnoticed is TRULY a crime in itself. A real unjustice.

Then comes 1993 and grunge is running no longer the new thing, but more a constant norm on MTV and radio. INXS rush released 'Full Moon, Dirty Hearts' less than a year after 'Welcome To Wherever You Are' and after absolutely enjoying every single minute of WTWYA and then I see 'The Gift' on MTV to say I was eagerly anticipating the next album was an understatement. Back in 1993, I had no reason to believe this album would disappoint me in ways that I still can't shake off to this very day. I had 'Listen Like Thieves, Kick, X, Welcome To Whevever You Are' all on cassette initially and bought them all over again on cd because times were changing and they were all worthy of re-purchase.

So riding on the momentum of the best album in their discography as a whole and THEN hearing the harder, rougher and totally kick ass 'The Gift' I was foaming at the mouth at how good 'Full Moon, Dirty Hearts' would be. INXS so far have not disappointed in any form or level to me, they were a band that could not possibly stink or be average. Then I got Full Moon, Dirty Hearts and I still remember my level of disappointment after hearing the whole thing. I was initially in denial and I listened to it over and over and over till I was practically memorizing the words. Somehow, INXS let me down. I recall thinking and asking myself why didn't they take more time to make this album? It came out so quickly that I think it affected the quality of the songs and album as a whole. But at this point I guess they felt that they needed to recover their lost popularity. But this album only exacerbated the problem and INXS never recovered from it. I won't slag this album completely, songs like Days Of Rust and Time are pretty good. They clearly changed their style to adjust to the harder edged music industry and it just seems to be a bit rushed. But most definitely disappointing. Perhaps the well was running on empty.

Unfocused June 26 2009
By H. Jin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
INXS really dug themselves a huge hole in the early 90's. The followed up their smash 'Kick' with 'X': a slick, calculated album designed for instant commercial success. It didn't sell as well as expected, and by the time they made the more interesting 'Welcome....' the mainstream had started to pass them by.

So the calculated grab for the pop charts didn't work, but the artistic experiment didn't sell well either, leaving INXS at a bit of a loss of where to go next. This uncertainty is evident in 'Full Moon...', one of their least consistent albums. On one hand, they seem to be going for a more stripped-down, rawer rock sound similar to 'Listen Like Thieves'. There are duets with Chrissie Hynde and Ray Charles, and INXS started touring smaller pubs and clubs, suggesting the band was taking a "back to basics" approach. However, the album also contains the sort of heavy production and experimentation seen on 'Welcome...', which doesn't fit, and only makes the band seem indecisive and unfocused.

Take 'The Gift': built around a raw, stomping rock riff, heavier than anything they've done since 'Kick'....but it's shrouded in an overbearing production that robs the song of its grunt. And that's the problem; instead of rocking, the production tends to make the songs plodding and stiff, which might be why some people claim it's influenced by grunge and alt-rock (it's not). It doesn't help that the songs themselves aren't quite as strong as before.

Either way, this certainly wasn't the comeback INXS were looking for, and sad to say it was no surprise the album flopped. There are a couple of good songs here (the opening two tracks plus the two duets), and a cleaner production would have helped, but this is arguably INXS' weakest album.
