Elegantly Wasted

A

Finally, a reason to cheer the ’80s revival! INXS’ latest, Elegantly Wasted, recalls the kick of their pre-alterna-rock prime. The Jaggeresque vocal yowl of Michael Hutchence, matched to the spiky James Brown funk of the Farriss brothers, gives their new melodies swing and tone. The band indulges in more ballads than usual, not to mention some forced world-beat twists. But the end result should still give early fans what they need. A
