For easy classification and filing purposes, you could place Disappointment Inc. into the Janes Addiction white-boy funk metal trip. But that's not entirely accurate or fair to the band. On this four song live Ep, the band plays four numbers that show some Violent Femmes influence as well as the early 90's Janes/Chili Peppers thing. It is lively and energetic. Chances are, their live show is a good time as well. There is just enough of a good time here to not dislike the band. At the same time, it's not the type of thing where I hoot and holler about how wonderful they are, either. It is better than the whiny-boy college rock that you hear so much of these days, but lacks the definitive edge of their influences.
