AllMusic Review by

Former Slave drummer and vocalist Steve Arrington enjoyed some success in the 1980s with a group that mirrored the Slave style -- uptempo funk with a steady, driving backbeat and earnestly sung lead vocals. Arrington had pretty much exhausted his creativity by the time they issued Jam Packed; the arrangements sound stagnant and his vocals lack the energy and punch of earlier sessions. Only a couple of decent funk tracks keep this from being a total disaster.
