List Rules This list includes studio albums only, so if you add an album make sure it's a proper studio release.

One of the biggest 80s bands, Australia's INXS is also considered one of the best bands of all time. Since they’re such an influential band, let’s rank the best INXS albums, with the help of your votes. INXS, fronted by lead singer Michael Hutchence, blended their synth-heavy dance tunes with the Stoney, sax-driven blues of their early years as a pub band. While early releases like Shabooh Shoobah (1982) and Listen Like Thieves (1985) put them on the alternative rock map, it wasn’t until Kick (1987) that the Aussie band became a household name.

This INXS discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top INXS albums can be found at the top of the list. To make it easy for you, we haven't included INXS singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest INXS album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves.This list of popular INXS CDs has been voted on by music fans around the world, so the order of this list isn't just one person's opinion. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite INXS album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.
