alguien sabe explicarme quien es este magnifico interprete del aor? se agradecera

From: Mr. Vancouver Date: April 28, 2004 at 20:59
I wish I kept this CD. I like the AC/DC remake "It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)", "Two Strong Hearts", and the title "Age Of Reason".

From: Geoff Date: February 17, 2005 at 3:16
LOL... I'm still laughing Well, to be honest I'm not laughing, but I'm amused. My brother bought this on tape way back when it came out, but more as a joke than anything else. Again, if you look at the hits here in Australia, 'Two strong hearts' and 'Beyond the call', I hate to admit it but they're great songs!

From: David Gil Date: March 4, 2005 at 16:21
The cd have really 12 songs: "When the war is over" is the 11th song and the last song is the AC/DC cover "It´s a long way..." Plase correct this mistake.

From: ROBERT Date: April 20, 2006 at 12:57
Vaya tela con el tema titulo, esto es abrir un disco con clase, Esto es puro AUSSIE AOR!! No obstante me faltan aki varios discos d este Genio: UNCOVERED - 1980, CHAIN REACTION - 1990, ROMEO'S HEART - 1996, GREATEST HITS - 1997, THE LAST TIME - 2002, I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS YOUNG - 2002, FULL HOUSE - LIVE PERFOMANCES ?(en directo) Para mi uno d los mas grandes Solistas d A.O.R. Australianos. ¿q me deciis d TWO STRONG HEARTS? Pues para mi se a convertido en mi favorita d este Fabuloso Cantante... U

From: Lovedrive Date: May 30, 2006 at 15:57
No está mal, pero prefiero el siguiente disco "Chain Reaction", a ver si lo ponen..

From: HaremScarem Date: June 30, 2006 at 8:27
Estoy de acuerdo contigo Lovedrive, deberían poner el "Chain Reaction", para mí el mejor sin duda de este gran cantante, un auténtico discazo. Comienza con un temazo impresionante que es "Thats Freedom", luego tiene un baladón titulado "Burn for you" que es una maravilla y canciones buenísimas como "I can do anything", "Chain reaction", "In your hands" o "New day". Para mi se ha convertido en uno de mis discos preferidos de West Coast.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 2 Date: June 30, 2007 at 6:25
No estoy de acuerdo con Loverdrive (por cierto saludos machote ) y HaremScarem, a mi este me parece mucho mas completo que "Chain Reaction", pero bueno en todo caso sería debatible, lo que no ofrece discusión ninguna es que le da 40 patadas al anterior del 86' el cual sinceramente no me gusta demasiado. En este "Age Of Reason" hayamos tipicos temas enfocados a solista, la cosa está en que Juanito no es un cantante cualquiera, este tipo es un fuera de serie que interpreta como nadie...

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 2 Date: June 30, 2007 at 6:35
... y por lo tanto como sucede con otros cracks de semejante condición (Free, Brock,Gramm...) temas que en un principio o en voz de otro pudiesen resultar medianias este los convierte automaticamente en mas que decencias, para que hablar de los que de por si ya son realmente buenos... en fin para escucharlos miles de veces. "Listen To The Wind" para mi es el mejor corte del disco junto con "When The War Is Over" (lastima de coros femeninos...). RECOMENDADO.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: July 6, 2007 at 13:02
Lo de Gran cantante no hay discusion pero de que alla hecho un album redondo no lo tiene tanto este como el siguiente son muy buenos Lite/AOR/Westcoast es lo que hace no el AOR energetico que busco pero de que tiene clase y finura lo tiene, sobre sus mejores canciones en este album Jose das en el punto a los cuales tambien agrego Two Strong Hearts y la rockera It's a Long Way to the Top, del Chain Reaction "In Your Hands(temon el mejor del album), The First Step, That's Freedom" son lo mejorcito

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: July 6, 2007 at 13:10
ambos albums desde mi punto de vista casi al mismo nivel donde se nota mas maduro a diferencia del anterior que tambien es bueno y donde para mi tiene quiza su mejor tema(que nada tiene que ver con los OST donde de lejos a millones de eones estan sus mejores canciones) hablo de "Reasons" por estilo que tiene con esa atmosfera del 86 le da otro encanto y si "Let Me Out" fuera el 100% el estilo que tiene hasta el minuto 1:15 para mi seria la mejor cancion luchando con "Break The Ice" saludos.

From: Wachen Date: June 19, 2008 at 16:01
Love his voice and this album. It seems like some people has a problem admitting they like him because it's not "hip" enough. Lay that to rest, Farnham outsings every lead vocalist ever. Totally amazing! The title track and "Two strong hearts" are soft AOR at it's very best!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 18, 2010 at 18:26
Very nice and pleasent album from a singer that hasn't release any other albums recently..best tracks are "Blow By Blow","Listen To The Wind"(soft),"Beyond The Call" & "Don't Tell Me It Can be Done"..then for me the outsatnding ones are "The Fire" and "It's A Long Way To The Top"(this one is an excellent mid tempo ballad)..for the likes of Michael Bolton("The Hunger/Soul Provider" times).88/100
