CD REVIEW: PROFIT by The Jelly Jam

PROFIT by The Jelly Jam
(Music Theories)

The trio of Ty Tabor on guitar (King's X), John Myung on bass (Dream Theater), & Rod Morgenstein on drums (Dixie Dregs) are back with their latest release as The Jelly Jam with, 'The Profit'. I've been a fan of The Jelly Jam since their 2002 self titled debut and this new release does not disappoint. If you have heard the band's debut, this recording is much more rockin, heavier, and just bigger and fuller sounding. As you might very well imagine with Ty Tabor handling the vocals there is that King's X vibe to the album. The songs are mysterious, catchy, a little progressive and experimental but not ever over shadowing the big rocking riffs and delicate moments.  The highlights so far for me are, "Care", "Water", "Memphis","Ghost Town" and "Fallen". 'Profit', is everything you would expect; excellent musicianship, infectious hooks, and deep lyrics, all splashed with a coating of psychedelia. You can tell that Ty Tabor, John Myung and Rod Morgenstein loved every minute of creating this stellar recording. A very impressive, very enjoyable modern rock album indeed.  Highly Recommended
