O.K. kiddies. It's been 8 long years since INXS put out a record, but the wait is finally over. Switch, their first release with new lead singer J.D. Fortune is in stores tomorrow. If you're unsure if you wanna buy the record, you can listen to it today in its entirety on VH1.com. I've made no secret of the fact that my pick on Rockstar: INXS would have been Marty Casey, he was a perfect way for the band to come back with a whole new twist and possibly reignite them after the loss of Michael Hutchence. But instead, INXS thought that going with J.D. Fortune would be a better and needless to say, "safe" pick. As heard on "Switch," Fortune has the ability to do a brilliant job of sounding like Hutchence, the only problem is, we know it's not good 'ol Michael (may he RIP). Nevertheless, if you can block that little fact out of your mind, Fortune succeeds as the new lead singer of INXS. There are some great little tunes on the new CD, not to mention, yah, that J.D. is kinda a hunk.
Tunes to check out: Pretty Vegas, Devils Party, Hot Girls.
