Switch [Tour Edition]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
There are a couple of ways to approach Switch -- either as the latest disc to emerge from the reality show universe or as a new chapter in the tale of a band that bowed out sooner than they needed to. On either front, the album -- the first full-fledged INXS release since the 1997 suicide of frontman Michael Hutchence -- works pretty well. Yes, it's got its fair share of cheesy moments (new frontman J. D. Fortune was, after all, an Elvis impersonator in his past life), but there's something uncannily sincere about the way he and his new bandmates chug through both mid-tempo rockers like "Pretty Vegas" and lighter-igniting power ballads like "Afterglow," probably ...

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
There are a couple of ways to approach Switch -- either as the latest disc to emerge from the reality show universe or as a new chapter in the tale of a band that bowed out sooner than they needed to. On either front, the album -- the first full-fledged INXS release since the 1997 suicide of frontman Michael Hutchence -- works pretty well. Yes, it's got its fair share of cheesy moments (new frontman J. D. Fortune was, after all, an Elvis impersonator in his past life), but there's something uncannily sincere about the way he and his new bandmates chug through both mid-tempo rockers like "Pretty Vegas" and lighter-igniting power ballads like "Afterglow," probably the closest song, in spirit, if not sound, to the band's halcyon days. Occasionally, the original members do try a bit too hard to replicate those bygone moments -- "Devil's Party," for instance, resurrects the melody line of "Original Sin" -- but for the most part, they manage to update the vibe successfully. Andrew Farriss, who was responsible for writing the music for most of the band's best-known material, reprises that role here, turning out tunes that alternately swing (the bass-driven "Like It or Not," for example) and tease, such as "Never Let You Go," which cross-breeds reggae and cerebral new wave to good effect. There's no attempt to disguise the made-for-TV origins of Switch -- Rock Star runners-up Suzie McNeil and Deanna Johnston crop up on "God's Top Ten" -- but judging by the evidence in the grooves, INXS have more to offer than just reruns.
