The Jelly Jam – PROFIT – CD Review

The Jelly Jam – PROFIT – CD Review

28th May 2016 1 By John Deaux

It’s been 5 years since the progressive rock trio of Rod Morgenstein, Ty Tabor & John Myung have released new material & 2016 will also see The Jelly Jam embark on their 1st world tour.

The Jelly Jam started out in 2002 as a bit of a side project but has been succesful in its own right. Featuring members of The Dixie Dreggs/Winger, Kings X & Dream Theater, this is the trios 4th album & Profit is probably the most accessible album to date. It’s also their most diverse.

The opener Care, for example is as heavy as the album gets  

The whole album contains elements of grunge on tracks such as Mr Man

through to tracks like Permament Hold which shows The Jelly Jams more experimental side

Profit is this bands strongest album to date. It was always going to be hard to try & surpass & progress from their 1st album but this proves that when these 3 guys get in a room to write together that they can still create magic.

Ty Tabor is one of the most underrated vocalists of all time, Rod Morgensteins key strokes are masterful & as for John Myungs bass work on this opus, shows what the man is capable of when not confined to Dream Theater

Water is such a beautiful song & my eargasm moment that caused me to have an attack of frisson.

This opus is a huge melting pot of styles & is ridiculously addictive.

Crack cocaine for the ears.
