Format: CD

Overall Rating: 7.0
Music: 7.0
Production: 8.0


The second Jelly Jam album titled simplistically as "2" disappointed me a little. Although the line-up consists of many renowned musicians, this album isn't as good as one might expect. Ty Tabor (King's X), John Myung (Dream Theater) and Rod Morgenstein (Dixie Dregs) didn't use their skills entirely on this album (I expected better compositions).

One could say the songs are somewhat diverse, although there is some repetition. Actually I'm not so fond of their compositions, which aren't interesting enough to keep me intrigued (few listens and the songs start to bore). However, some of the songs were better than others (tracks 4, 5, 6, 8 & 9)... Stylistically I'd say that songs are pop rock with some progressive edge (there were also some other elements, but they weren't as regular as others).

Production is ok... There were some occasional distortion (for example, in the end of 'Angel or Devil'), which wasn't too pleasant. Also some slight errors could be heard (clips etc.), but fortunately nothing too grave. However, I expected better production from this album.

All in all, I'm disappointed with The Jelly Jam 2... The quality of songs wasn't great, and also the production needs improvement. However, this is only my opinion and yours may differ... So be sure to check out samples or listen the whole album before buying.
