“Far Away” has been generally well received by critics. Writing for Spin, David Marchese reviewed the song thus:

“Get your lighters out! If “In the Morning” was power-ballad-as-psychedelic-rainbow, then “Far Away” is its prom-friendly cousin. Over an almost delicate music box melody played on, I think, electric piano, [Andrew] Stockdale, in a relatively subdued voice, sings about the one that got away: “I believe that love is gonna last forever / But it’s all within my mind.” An acoustic guitar gently pads things out. The drums play a laidback shuffle. The bass shadows the guitar chords. A melodic major key guitar solo swoops in to guide the listener to Valhalla.[3]”
English music magazine NME praised the song as “the only ‘progress’” on the album, describing it as “sound[ing] like it was expelled by Axl Rose during an enema in early sessions for ‘Chinese Democracy’.”[4] In revealing that the song would be released as the fourth single from Cosmic Egg, Australian news website Access All Areas described “Far Away” as “the hands aloft summit of Wolfmother’s colossal second album,” adding that it is “Wolfmother’s sitting on the porch torch song, an epic slice of melancholic keys and searing guitar that sounds like a big ole bag of all-time good times.”[5]
