Age of Reason

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jonathan Lewis
John Farnham followed up his huge hit Whispering Jack with more of the same, in the form of Age of Reason.

Despite this, "Age of Reason" was still the best track on the album. Both it and "Two Strong Hearts" became Australian hits. The rest of the disc is simply bland, commercial pop, culminating in a misguided cover of AC/DC's "It's a Long Way to the Top If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll."
