To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The purchase was worthwhile, especially as the disc contains the very welcome and most well known of John Farnham's hits, "You're the Voice". Still, the whole disc represents excellent value for money containing, as it does, some well known songs in the John Farnham style - easy sounding, good vocals and professional backing, and always well sung in the inimitable manner of this long-standing Aussie favourite. The disc may not be a popular as the all-time best selling Aussie album by Farnham, "Whispering Jack" - again focusing on "You're the Voice", but in many ways it is a preferable disc to have. The music has a way of growing on the listener with repeated listening, recognising that the lyrics have a depth not easily seen first time around. John (formerly "Johnny") Farnham has been around for a long time now (it seems like ages), but he is still a welcome voice in this expatriate's household.
John Farnham, `You`re The Voice`, featured on the recent Commonwealth games Intro prompting purchase of JF CD. `Greatest Hits`, excellent, strong, powerful, meaningful lyrics and harmonies, might visit Oz sometime an travel that great country in a Camper Van listening to National Anthem `You`re The Voice`, `Freedom` !!
John Farnham at his best. Contrarians some of my favourites ' A Touch of Paradise' and 'Keep The Pressure Down' for example. It has stood the test of time and still holds its own with the later Farnham albums.
