DELAYED, THE: Losing My Mind: CDEP

I’m not sure what to make of this one. There are moments during this five-song EP that remind me of early ‘80s bands like Hoodoo Gurus and The Smithereens. But then there are other moments, when they sound more like later ‘80s hair bands like Poison and Ratt. I think the problem is that the lead guitarist sounds like he wants to be in a pop-metal band, while the rest of the band want to be in a ‘77-era punk band. The songs are mediocre, but if they can clear up this confusion about who they want to sound like, I think they’ll be a lot more enjoyable.
