PLAIN JANE: Perry Farrell leads Jane's Addiction reunion show

B-

Kettle Whistle

Genre: Rock; Lead Performer: Jane's Addiction; Producer (group): Warner Bros.

This patchwork of outtakes, demos, live tracks, and four new songs isn?t going to change anyone?s mind about Jane?s Addiction -? you either buy into Perry Farrell?s Robert Plant-does-Fagin shtick or you don’t. The new material’s updated ambient sheen turns them into a funkier Porno for Pyros, which makes you wonder: Why bother with a reunion?
