We gave it a C-

Give INXS this: At times, this needlessly reconstituted band sounds uncannily like its old self, with new hire J.D. Fortune mimicking Michael Hutchence’s stud-muffin leer and the surviving members churning out riffy half-songs just as they always did. Recycled as they may be, such moments are infinitely preferable to the strip-joint sleaze rock they also try. But in the end, secondhand INXS is all Switch is.
