The Review:

The Jelly Jam returns with their second release on InsideOut Music called 2. A you may or may not know this band was formed from the ashes of Platypus. On the first Jelly Jam disc, there was a departure from the progressive undertones that were on the two Platypus CDs. On 2, thereís a somewhat of a return but with a more guitar presence. Much like modern rock bands use today. Iím really enjoying the CD and I find itís a nice way for them to show that they can fit in with the mainstream world without falling into the cliches.

I sincerely hope that this band get proper marketing, because I can see them taking the world by storm. If you need a band to compare The Jelly Jam to, within the mainstream music, Iíd say theyíre very much in the vein of The Foo Fighters. This is a rocking good release. No frills. Very recommended for those that like to rock without the depressing vocals of the nu-metal scene
