Twentieth Century is the sixth studio album by Australian rock band Cold Chisel, originally released in April 1984 via WEA / Warner.

Cold Chisel's final studio album (for the next 14 years) was a scorching send-off for a band that in ten years had elevated itself into the national psyche as its best and best-loved act.

Although the passion was waning, the songs here carry Chisel's inimitable brand: the searing roughhouse rock of "Hold Me Tight", "Painted Doll", "Twentieth Century" and "Ghost Town", as well as the dull red-light roar of "Saturday Night" and "Flame Trees".

Twentieth Century is honest in its aspirations: full tilt boogie, the solicitous torch songs, the kiss-offs, the less successful double-upped workouts. Cold Chisel are like no other band. And this record isn't like their other records.

The single “Saturday Night” just missed out on the Australian top 10, the title track only just got into the top 100 and even the Prestwich/Walker co-write “Flame Trees” – one of their finest ballads which Barnes delivers with feeling and the neatly judged “Who needs this sentimental bullshit anyway” aside – only made 26 on the charts, although went on to become a staple at radio.

There seemed an appreciable tailing off of interest and the band was pulling itself apart after a decade of relentless touring.

It would be their last studio album for 14 years, some members refusing to record with others, sessions taken on the fly, and they called it a halt with a concert/film The Last Stand in December '83 – until of course the spark reignited, perhaps from the ongoing demand, culminating in the reunion in 1998.

Check out the tracks: “Hold Me Tight; “No Sense”; “Saturday Night”; “Twentieth Century” and “Flame Trees”.

This 2016 remastered LP on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl, with reproduced original artwork is pressed in Australia.
