 Anchored by the sensual purr of vocalist Michael Hutchence and frisky drumming (recorded in analog) of Jon Farriss, INXS' 6x Platinum 1987 masterwork Kick taps into a hybrid style that freshly stays away from the era's plastic, manufactured sounds and narrow-minded, vacant aesthetic. A seamless fusion of dance beats, sleek rock riffs, soaring hooks, horn-fueled R&B, and string-laden accents, the 12-track set is an irresistibly catchy and liquidly fluid sonic miasma that contains every single element a classic contemporary pop work requires.

Above all, every song boasts a different feel and distinctive pace, characteristics that aren't forced but natural results of the collective's chemistry. The sexy, breathy pop-funk "Need You Tonight" clicks with interlocking arrangements and murmured vocals. The atmospheric, synth-drum-punctuated "Meditate" hallucinates with stream-of-conscious vocals and percolating grooves. Well-placed pauses, hypnotic flanged guitar passages, and so-funky-you'll-sweat saxophone breaks pepper the liberating rock smash "New Sensation."

INXS also kicks out upbeat dance-inflected jams on the brassy skirt-swaying title track, syncopated "Calling All Nations," and elsewhere, but doesn't forget the importance of a bleeding-heart ballad. Hence, the devastatingly moving "Never Tear Us Apart," the knifing strings and guitar twang proving dramatic, direct, and honest. The late 1980s produced a handful of more commercially successful pop records, but none is better than the timeless Kick.
