The release of Listen Like Thieves brought the group international acclaim, as well as a long-awaited breakthrough in the US. According to guitarist and saxophonist Kirk Pengilly"We wanted an album where all the songs were possible singles".
At the band's request, fellow engineer David Nicholas was brought in to assist with the album's production. In the band's official autobiography, INXS: Story to StoryNicholas recalled: "There was a really good feeling in the studio that this was going to be something big. 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".
During production, management booked dates for the band's upcoming European tour. Thomas recalls, "They had an incredible momentum building and were gaining fans all the time. There was an audience waiting for the product, but I decided that they didn't have the right songs yet".
Certain songs that were recorded early in production remained close to their demo counterparts, while others were changed drastically. The demo of "Mediate" was also longer;  when Andrew first played its demo in the studio, "Need You Tonight" was playing in the background. We were very excited about the idea of overlaying two types of Guns In The Sky - INXS - Kick (CD and genres together.
The success of "What You Need" provided primary songwriters Hutchence and Andrew Farriss with the confidence and optimism to pen bigger material,   and with the rest of the band's blessing, Kick became the first INXS album written by the duo without input from the other members.
We wanted our songs to sound like the future". Like the band's previous albums, Hutchence exhibits a warm and nimble vocal delivery on Kickwhile extending his range in a breathy vocal register. From his opening grunts on "Guns in the Sky" to his intense shouting on "New Sensation" to his intimate whispers captured on "Need You Tonight", Kick displays the singer's wide-ranging vocal abilities. As Andrew Farriss recalls, "Hutchence's instrument was his voice; he couldn't explain what he was thinking in musical terms.
He would say things like, 'It needs to feel like this. Upon its release, Kick was noted for being in sync with the visual media of the late 80's, which is instantly evident in the album's opening track "Guns in the Sky"; the song described the state of the world and its obsession with arms. In the band's official autobiography. In the band's official autobiography, the band's manager Chris Murphy stated that upon completion of Kickhe immediately flew to New York to play the finished album for the top executives of Atlantic Records.

Murphy stated that his strategy had worked; Atlantic finally added Kick to their release schedule for October. Kick provided the band with worldwide popularity; it peaked at No. Within a year of its release, Kick had achieved gold and platinum status in many countries.

It is probably the only anti-war song that combines a heavy beat with sexy grunts.
