Product Description

Welcome To Wherever You Are is the band's eighth album and was released in 1992. It boasts the singles Heaven Sent, Taste It, Baby Don't Cry and Beautiful Girl. Of course - it was a time grunge and alternative breaking into the mainstream, INXS tried to establish a new direction for itself, la U2 and Achtung Baby incorporating sitars, a 60-piece orchestra, and a much more "raw" sound to their music. In its four star review of the album, Q called it "...a far more engaging and heartfelt collection than anything the group has put out in recent memory... It rocks," and listed it as one of the 50 Best Albums of 1992.

3.0 out of 5 stars Right out of the Vaults June 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
Cut in 1992 this one qualifies as a vault recording, it isn't timeless, it isn't destined to be a classic. INXS, from Australia, hit all the right buttons in the late 80's and petered and fizzled out into the 90's.
The album packaging did prove that over the years the band did learn how to all dress like each other in snazzy matching outfits for photo shoots.
"Welcome to Wherever You Are," was the Fixx making "Ink," the Cars making "Door to Door," Van Halen doing "Van Halen III," you know...the beginning of the end. "Welcome to Wherever You Are," granted has enough listenable material that you won't immediately go out running to your local Hastings to try to sell it dirt cheap or stick it in the pile of garage sale recordings right next to worn copies of Air Supply, Barry Manilow, and Bread. INXS became commercial...they were tainted by success. Maybe that was more than lead singer Michael Hutchence bargained for. Fame can be a daunting thing. Commercialism alone doesn't make a band start to pump out uninspired drivel but if heads aren't on right it can lead to it. Though the collective musicians of INXS seem to be talented enough that "Welcome To Wherever You Are," doesn't delve to the drivel level. Nevertheless the band members picked up the road signs, mapped it out on Mapquest, and yep with this CD they were heading to drivel city, USA.
The album starts out interestingly enough with a Sitar-singed, "Questions." Follows it up with some hit top-40 radio play ditties in "Heaven Sent," "Taste It," and "Not Enough Time." But by the time they reach the big horns bouncy, "Baby Don't Cry," all inspiration has ran dry.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute masterpiece! Jan. 18 2004
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This album is a classic, a set of songs of amazing variety and great melodic depth. I love the sitars and tabla on Questions and the raucous rock of Heaven Sent. Communication is a catchy slice of pop-rock with a driving beat, Taste It sounds like one the Stones' funky ballads with its jerky rollicking rhythm, whilst Not Enough Time is a soulful love song with beautiful vocals and gripping chorus.
All Around is a powerful up-tempo rock gem and the tuneful Baby Don't Cry with its sixties flavour and uplifting harmonies is irresistible. One of the highlights of this great album is the poignant Beautiful Girl, where great lyrics, vocals and playing gel into a pop masterpiece. Back On Line, Strange Desire and Men and Women are great too.
There are no duds on Welcome To Wherever You Are. It is one of those rare albums where every track offers something special. Inxs' s mastery of such a variety of styles is impressive. This is probably one of the very best, and most underappreciated, rock albums of the 1990s.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS THE BEST ALBUM EVER MADE Oct. 19 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was looking for something else, and saw my favorite album of all time listed with only 4 1/2 stars! This deserves 5. It has been my favorite album since I heard it when it first was released. It is absolutely amazing and I listen to it very often, even after this many years. Their other albums are great, but I hate the fact that most people think of them only by their more popular 80's singles, which I think are very good, but very different; this is not "New Sensation". This album is a masterpeice and I consider it the best album ever made. It took me a few listens to really get a handle on it, but I knew from the first listen that it was going to be my favorite album. Another reviewer said this album has a "timeless quality" and I couldn't agree more. It doesn't sound like anything else, even one of their own albums. None of the songs are boring or ever get old. Not only are the songs incredible, but the way in which the album was made is also incredible: the order of the songs is carefully thought-out with incredible transitions like the sudden opening of Heaven Sent when Questions is still fading out. Even the artwork on the album seems to help set that strange, really facinating exotic tone. All the tracks are incredible, well-written and fresh (timeless) tunes, and have anywhere from a little to a lot of a strange kind of exotic sound, very different and exciting drum parts, many special effects and vocal processing, all done perfectly - unlike many albums I like, I wouldn't want anything at all changed, unless it was to add more tracks :) Questions is particularly exotic-sounding and different and sets the mood of the album. Heaven Sent is bright and strong and fairly guitar-driven, but definitely unique and tremendously musically interesting. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars INXS delivers under-rated package on "Welcome" June 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
By C.S.

Australian imports to North America these days is a consistent transaction of talent tht continues much more on the film front than musically as was the case in the 1980's
Spearheading the attack were INXS,an outfit sporting three of the Farris brothers on various instruments, saxophonist Kirk Penghilly on sax,and the the charismatic front- man serving the
arrangemets the vocal treatment needed, Michael Hutchence.
"Shabooh Shabaah" broke the group Stateside, "The Swing" soldified their status as a funk band on the rise and "Listen Like Thieves" established a bridge between the early approach combined with guitar-driven edge. All of these records loosened the lid before the kettle of fish got opened.
That kettle was the multi- platinum " Kick" a fish that escaped and made INXS big stars and on the charts from beginning to end with each single release. It was the $$$ money- making album .
Strangley enough though their next release "X" (thought by many to be "Kick II WITH WEAKER offerings) recieved airplay of the single "Suicide Blonde", the attention anoited to the band quickly disintegrated by the time this record "Welcome To Wherever You Are" hit the airwaves in 1992.
The single taken from the album "Not Enough Time" did not make the ripples domestically that the previous records had.
Did the public at large decide that "Kick" and some of what "X" had to offer was about as much as they could stand to hear?
Perhaps,but many missed some of the good work crafted on "Welcome". Though not a landmark disc like Frankie Goes To Hollywood's LP with the same first name "Welcome To The PleasureDome", this record contains the raw energy of "Kick" minus the repetitive rhythm guitar bits that dominated that effort and "X".
