Switch, the much anticipated return of the Aussie rock band, INXS, who rose to fame during the 1980s, is honestly a solid effort by the group. It combines their signature style with a new lead singer, JD Fortune, who clearly embodies many of the qualities of the original lead singer of the band, Michael Hutchence. Long time fans of the band should not be disappointed; unless of course you are one of those people who believe that Michael Hutchence was the heart and soul of the band, in that case I would not recommend this album to those people. However, I would recommend that they should listen to "God's Top Ten" from the album, which I believe could be a tribute to Michael Hutchence. It is an all around good well written song and quite unique to the album. The album really targets a more mature adult contemporary rock audience and would probably not interest the teen or pre-teen market, unless of course they were really into the Rockstar:INXS reality T.V show. The album is an excellent mix of upbeat rock songs and ballads. In my opinion the best songs on the album are: "Never Let You Go", "Us", and "God's Top Ten". However, all the songs on the album are excellent and I'm sure it will captivate the target audience within the first minute of listening. The band's sound is quite eclectic, which many of the fans probably already know, but for anyone who made the effort to look up this CD on the net you should give this album a try you might be pleasantly surprised. Most of all what you should take from this review, if any thing is that you should NOT discount this album as Reality T.V Garbage, there is more there then just perfectly marketed filler. This album reminds us, well, those who had heard of and listened to the band prior to the show why the band came to fame in the first place,the only difference is that there is just someone else carrying the torch.
