Having enjoyed "Bellybutton" so much, this release was eagerly anticipated, and did not disappoint in the least. Sort of a 90's update of "Sergeant Pepper," the band covers a lot of musical ground in a dream concept. Beginning with the gentle, Queen-like a-capella "Hush" to the overblown, hallucinogenic carnival sounds of "Brighter Day," from the feedback roar of "All Is Forgiven" flowing into the peaceful acoustic "Russian Hill," I never fail to be impressed by the craft of the whole effort. The instrumentation runs a bizarre gamut of guitars, harpsichord, organs, banjo, brass...the vocal harmonies echoing Queen (of course), the Beach Boys, the Beatles and the Association. Hard songs, mellow songs, even a polka thrown in for good measure. This is one of those disks that I can listen to for days on end without tiring. Irresistably cheerful and upbeat and always amazing. Perhaps best of all, the disc ends where it begins, so I can go right back to track 1 for another listen. All of the songs are standouts. The music world should be mourning the breakup of Jellyfish, one of the truly great bands to emerge from the decade. I was lucky enough to see them twice on the "Spilt Milk" tour, and I was shocked at how much they were able to duplicate the incredible production on the album in a live setting. With brilliant songwriting, production and musicianship, "Spilt Milk" most definitely gets my 5 stars. It is truly a pop classic.

I am not that easily persuaded into giving albums 5 star ratings. Which means that I consider the second and final album from Jellyfish to be of importance to the music world at large. It didn't even break the top 100 when it was released in 1993, but when you listen to the leap from their dazzling power-pop "Bellybutton" debut and the conceptual undertaking of this, you will begin to wish Jellyfish had held together long enough to expand on this brilliant album.

At the radio paper I was editing in 1993, I listed "Spilt Milk" as one of the 10 best albums of the year. They mixed all the best elements of the seventies (you'll hear Queen, ELO, Supertramp, Raspberries) with the zippy pop of the sixties (Beatles, Beach Boys, Badfinger) to stunning effect. The overall sound of "Spilt Milk," however, is pure Jellyfish. Some 15 years later I can still take this CD out and listen to it from start to finish without growing tired of it. Jellyfish covered the ground from dreamy echo of Led Zepplin on "Russian Hill" to the pun-filled clever ode to self-love in "My Best Friend." There's even a pseudo-polka in "Bye Bye Bye."

But Jellyfish's forte remains their power-pop. On "Bellybutton," that was the irresistible "Baby's Coming Back," here it's "The Ghost At Number One" and "Joining A Fan Club." A glut of instruments appear, banjos. tubas, none of them synthesized (shades of early Queen!) that tickle the ears and only once pummel (the feedback laden "All Is Forgiven"). The production is meticulous and worthy of George Martin, and holds up after all these years. This is ear-candy of the highest order.

Okay, how many cds do you own that you can say this about: I remember the very first time i heard this cd about 4 years ago. I remember sitting on my bed after i pressed play, and this huge grin just spreading across my face. I was in love at first listen! These guys are amazing! The perfect production, strong vocals, and varied music styles from the classical strings on "Hush" to the guitar rock on "Joining a Fan Club" to the polka style of "Bye Bye Bye", achieve masterpiece status. The lyrics tell some interesting stories as well. I love that 70's groove they invoke on "New Mistake." Complete with sound effects and atmospheric arrangements, they've thought of everything to round out this album to its keeper status. The fact that the band broke up is a shame, and i have only heard Jason Falkner's solo efforts, both of which are good but do not touch this greatness. I will admit, Jellyfish had given themselves a sort of silly image with their wierd hippie/costume clothing, but the music is far from silly. The Queen references can't be ignored, but there's so much more here. This is another one of those desert island discs, and always will be, ever since the time i bought it for a few bucks in a used cd store. Makes you wonder what kind of person would give it away.

It is only a matter of time before the grungy, negative haze that was 90s rock and has morphed in to Nu-Metal falls out of fashion and people realize that in the angst driven fuzz of Nirvana and the minions of Nirvanawannabes, a truly brilliant American band was overlooked. The band was Jellyfish and their two albums of pop bliss will one day reach a level of cult respectibility not seen since Big Star, the early 70s power-pop group lead by Alex Chilton and Chris Bell, that thankfully was re-discovered in the late-80s and finally given some respect.
Jellyfish never enjoyed large crowds at their shows. They never had a hit song (although they came close with "Baby's Coming Back," and "The King Is Half Undressed," which had some video play on MTV). They didn't have a gold record, or even sell enough records to get half way to gold.
But they did record 2 albums worth of pop gems, meticulously crafted to the point where they were too good for their own good. The music was far too polished and happy for the grunge wave that hit just as they were getting started. Jellyfish was definitely a band in the right musical place at the wrong time. Thankfully these albums are still in print (for now) and folks who hear "Spilt Milk" for the first time can still experience the initial chills up the spine when they hear "New Mistake," and wonder what "My Best Friend" is all about, before it finally clicks ("A-Ha! I get it now. It's about. . .). "Bellybutton" and "Spilt Milk" are beautiful albums, with the latter enjoying a few more production tricks.
