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.
