Songs like "California" and "The End" have a very end of the day feel to them. The singer spits his lyrics hoarse, never really yelling, but sounding as if he has been. Low rock organ and dreamy surf guitar add a shade of color to their more ballad songs.
The EP does have some pretty strong drawbacks, in that that it sounds as if it was recorded at separate times in separate places- perhaps the band only had a studio budget for some of the tracks. The lack of production on some tracks is distracting (perfect example being "Whiskey"), especially when stood up side by side with tracks that sound wonderfully mixed and mastered, such as "Roulette" or "California". Also the drums sound very canned and repetitive throughout about half the songs- and mixing them loud doesn't help matters.
Altogether Blak Lyons is an EP that definitely has it's moments, and also has it's weak points.
