JELLYFISH / Spilt Milk (1993)

The sound on Jellyfish's second album is a lot fuller than on their previous release. The band filled the spaces in their songs with so much dreamy, melodic pop that it threatens to turn your ears to candy. It's one of the reasons I prefer the d├ębut album. I liked the spaces. There's almost too much going on here. The regular shift from pop assault to saccharine lullabies is a jarring experience on first listen, but after a while it becomes easier to pick out the good bits, which is about 90% of it. If the Beach Boys joined a circus band, they might sound something like Spilt Milk.
