1990–1997: From X to Elegantly Wasted

In October 1990, INXS released X which was produced by Thomas again and it peaked at #3 in Australia,[5] #5 in the US,[8] #2 in the UK,[28] #5 in Switzerland and #10 in Sweden.[7][43] It followed in the same vein as Kick, and added harmonica to some songs. X scored hits with "Suicide Blonde" and "Disappear" (both Top 10 in the US),[6] "Suicide Blonde" peaked at #2 in Australia, #11 in the UK[28] and in Switzerland.[44] Other singles from X were "Bitter Tears" and "By My Side" but they had less chart success.[1]

Hutchence's romance with Australian pop singer, Kylie Minogue brought the group a new audience of fans.[1][45] INXS performed at Wembley Stadium on 13 July 1991, during their "Summer XS" tour stop in London to a sold out audience of 74,000 fans.[1] This performance was recorded and filmed to become the their live album Live Baby Live (a video version was also released under the same title), which was released in November 1991 and peaked in the Top 30 in both Australia and UK album charts,[5][28] but had less success on The Billboard 200.[8]

Welcome to Wherever You Are, produced by Mark Opitz and released in August 1992,[3] was an experimental album using sitars and a 60-piece orchestra while adding a much more "raw" sound to their music. It received good critical reviews and went #1 in the UK[28] and in Sweden;[46] #2 in Australia and Switzerland,[46] and #3 in Norway,[46] but had less chart success in the US peaking at #16.[8] Singles from the album included, "Taste It" and "Baby Don't Cry" which were Top 20 successes in UK but had less success in US or Australian markets.[5][6][28]
