5.0 out of 5 stars Iconic 28 Dec 2007
By Youlsey
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the great rock albums and should have propelled Spear of Destiny to huge international success on par with their 80s contemporaries, U2. This never happened which is probably due to Kirk Brandon's refusal to conform to the musical status quo of the time and his fractious relationship with the entertainment media. A shame because at his peak, Kirk was a songwriting genius. On One Eyed Jacks you get the full Brandon repertoire from the rousing, melodic anthems of Rainmaker, Young Men, Liberator and Playground of the Rich, through to the infectious and innovative Attica and Everything You Ever Wanted. And the album signs off beautifully with the haunting These Days Are Gone, propelled along by a great saxophone arrangement, which epitomised the classic Spear of Destiny sound. Truly unique and inspiring.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums of the 80s! 19 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
Fantastic news that this is now at long last getting a CD release - something I've been waiting for since the mid 90s at least!

This is by far the best Spear of Destiny album. As a mere 16 year old in 1984 I literally wore this out on my record player. Liberator is the standout track and anyone who remembers alternative nights down the local youth club in the 80s will have fond memories of "wrecking" around the dancefloor to it. I remember my Dad at the time saying the album sounded like The Glitter Band if they had been influenced by punk. To be honest - he wasn't far wrong.

One of my favourite albums of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally...... 3 Dec 2010
By 11thru7
Format:MP3 Download
Finally Sony have released this in its original state & not taken it from vinyl!
One Eyed Jacks for me is the Album that took SOD into the realms of music history, it pretty much had everything that had come before it & so much more. Near perfect, but still raw & so much energy.
The tour for this album was amazing, everywhere you went the staff at the venues had no idea who they were & every venue was sold out. The Hammersmith Palais is still one of the best shows ever.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rip-off 15 April 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The people responsible for putting this out should be shot. As already mentioned this has been 'mastered' from vinyl but even so the sound quality is appalling ! Great album but avoid buying this rip-off at all costs.
This deserved a much better destiny!

5.0 out of 5 stars One eyed Jacks - at last..... 25 Jan 2008
By L. Cope
Format:Audio CD
its taken a while but its finally here. Upon first listen the sound is superb, but upon hearing this through the mp3 player it's pretty obvious that it has been transferred through vinyl as the little hisses and crackles are evident (but only if you listen for them) I myself personally remastered my own version several years ago but using the cassette version and i have to say that my result easily exceeded this version. The sleeve notes and lyrics are are really great addition (as is the fact that the disc is a real CD and not a cheap CDR like the one the "Unofficial" release was by the SOD HQ a while back and also at least a 3rd of the price they were charging at shows and online at KB.com.
I only wish that someone could find the full live Poland tape and release the full Gdansk Ice rink show on CD, fingers crossed.....Top Release!
