INXS: “Most exciting project since Kick”

Okay INXS, now you've really gone and done it.

A new album with guest vocalists, followed by a tour with vocalists TBA in the coming days, packaged with the following quote:

"We said early this year that Inxs was embarking on their most exciting project since Kick, and we're not here to disappoint," Petrol Electric creative director and founder CM Murphy said in a release. "2010 will be one of the most dynamic, creative and diverse projects the band has undertaken."

Most exciting project since Kick? Really?

    Those are brave words. I generally hate everything and even I loved “Kick”.
    Why don't they just grab that Jimmy Barnes dude who did those tracks with INXS from 'The Lost Boys' and call it a day?
    Good luck, gents.

    Exactly. Kick was awesome….and as someone that still listens to the album
    about once per year, it still holds up.

    Jimmy Barnes would be a good suggestion…they already did a bit of
    collaborating with him (and Jon Stevens and Terence Trent D'Arby)
    post-Hutchence, but apparently weren't happy with any of the combinations
    until they got to JD Fortune. I saw them live with Fortune at the State,
    and it was decent, but still nothing compared to the original lineup with
    Hutchence.

    I can't imagine what they're going to pull out, but I guess we'll find out
    soon enough.
