All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Following a year after Rhino's double-disc set Shine Like It Does, Rhino's The Best of INXS trumps the 1994 set Greatest Hits in the single-disc sweepstakes, but just barely. Over the course of 21 tracks, this does have nearly all of the hits, plus many of the bigger album tracks.

The band would have been better-served by a straight chronological listing -- particularly because lousy tunes like "Taste It" arrive so early in the album -- but apart from that, this is en enjoyable overview, containing all the biggest hits on one disc.
