This CD is Plain Brilliant"-John Burnett, Hawaii Tribune Herald

"One Blue Eye" by Jim Major; Stink Eye Records
Genre: Contemporary, pop.
Distinguishing notes: Major makes an auspicious debut with 12 new songs (all but one are from his pen) that mine contemporary pop elements. He writes and sings of loneliness, hope, love and other sentiments, tapping a bit of rock, a bit of blues, a bit of folk. "Under the Moon" reflects his upbeat, rock posture; "Bareass and Truthful" is a brooding ballad; "She Only" plays like a folk troubadour recalling a relationship. One of the best bets: a ballad,
"Angels Fall (Song for Jeff Buckley)," gentle on the ears, with personal eloquence.
The outlook: A welcome effort from someone of the pop genre; Jawaiian fanatics need to look elsewhere.
Our take: Could be a Major-domo with the right marketing.

"One Blue Eye"
Stink Eye Records
Jim Major appears to be speaking to the alienated and the lonely with this album of well-crafted, original guitar-oriented rock. He provides a clue to the story behind one song but leaves it completely up to the listener to decipher and assess the lyric images of the others. For instance, "NYC 5am" mentions the torment that can come when thinking of what might have been, but who are the "kids" mentioned, and does this matter?
"She Only" appears for a moment to be a variation of a country hit before moving in a completely different direction. Catchy guitar riffs and a strong lyric hook give this one pop-chart potential.
Clean somber arrangements -- some up-tempo hard rock, others soft and embellished with cello -- make the music interesting as well.
"Most CD's have one or two "singles" every song on this disc is a single, we have had more requests for this artist than most major recording artists we play."- Jay Stevens, Radio D.J.-101.5 KAOI FM 7-12 pm. Kona, Hawaii.
