About this deal

Thomas knew the album was done when he heard the recordings, and organised the last portion of the album's production to be carried out at the Studio De La Grande Armee in Paris. The band had just come off a really successful tour of the US on the back of Listen Like Thieves, which really broke them there and they were on fire".

Hutchence's knowing, Jaggeresque vocal swagger turned 'Devil Inside,' 'Never Tear Us Apart' and the mighty 'Mystify' into something beyond what INXS had done before and what they would do again. Following the release of Kick, INXS embarked on a sixteen-month global tour playing arenas and stadiums in major cities across North America, Europe, Japan and Australia. AllMusic's Steve Huey retrospectively described the album as "an impeccably crafted pop tour de force, the band succeeding at everything they try". According to INXS: The Official Inside Story of a Band on the Road, Andrew said, "Prior to the Kick tour I'd never written on the road – mainly because I didn't have time I guess.The album achieved the same ranking on ABC's (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) list of 100 Best Australian Albums, a compendium compiled by Australian journalists John O’Donnell, Toby Creswell and Craig Mathieson. Kick remains the band's best-selling album in Canada, earning a diamond certification from the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA), for shipments of one million copies.

In the UK, Kick was the band's first album to attain a platinum certification by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), achieving this designation in July 1988. It was an upbeat, confident album that yielded four Top 10 US singles, "New Sensation", "Never Tear Us Apart", "Devil Inside" and the No. According to the band's official autobiography, the album sold nearly 10 million units internationally only two years after its release. A very wide soundstage has been created here by hard panning rhythm guitar and individual percussion elements to the extreme edges. This four-disc Kick 30 set comes in DVD-sized ‘fan-deluxe’ which includes a 48-page booklet with interviews, essays and rare photos.The US record label first rejected the album, feeling that the funk and dance elements would alienate the band's traditional rock following. In October 2017, Universal Music Group announced that Kick would be re-issued in various formats to celebrate the album's 30th anniversary, which features a 3CD+Blu-ray, 2LP Vinyl Edition (half-speed mastered and pressed at 45RPM) and digital version.
