3 stars This album is definitely rockin' from beginning to end and nice to listen as background music. But I would not agree to that it sounds much like PLATYPUS apart from the vocals of course. This album must be great for fans of Stoner Rock, Grunge, Alternative... and for fans of KING'S X. To me it does not offer too much, I prefer much more PLATYPUS' two albums because they offer more diversity and complexity ( that I'm missing here at all). I like the variety in both of them given by the mixture of vocal and instrumental tracks. Like KING'S X THE JELLY JAM could be categorized rather as alt.rock than as prog, I think. Still a good album though and for sure better than most of stoner and alternative rock ones. Best tracks are definitely the title track and "The King's Dance" not because they're instrumental, but pretty much dfferent from the rest and remind very much to finest 70's progressive blues rock. Just for these tracks I'm giving half a star extra. I think 3 stars is a adequate rating. I can't explain why, but somehow Ty Tabor's voice is transmitting all the time a more "alternative rock feeling" to me, I noticed this already on KING'S X' records, as well as in the vocal tracks on PLATYPUS' albums. But still well done alternative rock I would say.
