We recently heard Mitch Malloy on the recent Kaato album. Now he reappears with his latest solo CD 'Making Noise'. The Nashville native has certainly been busy, but you have to these days to make a living. It certainly doesn't get any easier. Having recently reviewed one of Malloy's earlier albums ('Ceilings And Walls') it was a happy coincidence to have 'Making Noise' released so soon, and also in a rather busy mid-late summer period when so many other good albums are out.

The Songs
Mitch does the 'one-man-plays-all' on this 38 min and 13 sec album. These days with so much music to get through and not much time, 38 minutes is about right for me! When I heard the opener 'Rock n Roll' I thought this was going to be a cover of the chestnut 'Love The One You're With'. The vibe is similar yes, but obviously the song isn't. Is this a scene setter? No it isn't.. phew.. 'My Therapy' is next, some of you will have seen the promo video for this in our Forum. This is about where I envisaged Mitch to land musically, and he delivers like the Milkman! 'One Way' slows the tempo, but churns it out in a classic rock style. 'Speak Of The Devil' is a notch or two down on the metronome yet again, but is quite a groove-laden rocker with an organ backdrop as a friend. 'Shook' gets things back to normal transmission. Fluid bass lines, rawk vocals and that ever-present organ are song highlights.

Being a Nashville lad, Mitch throws in a melancholy ballad with 'It's Just A Word'. It's not quite country-crossover, but more British pop. Once you listen to it, you'll hopefully get the picture. With a track such as 'Alone', this is where Malloy comes into his element. A fiesty rocker, it's tracks like these which will get the crowds going on his forthcoming 'Making Noise' World Tour. 'I Was Wrong' is a kinda glossy reflective tune, maybe a bit Bon Jovi-ish, and a little bit Nashville in style. The penultimate track 'Life Has Just Begun' comes with big guitar riffs and thick vocal choruses, this should appeal to many. To complete the album, the title track 'Making Noise' finishes in true melodic hard rock fashion. Sort of like Cheap Trick on steroids!

In Summary
'Making Noise' is a happy sounding album, a typical summer affair for the beach, barbie or flip-top convertible. Mitch is travelling all over the place supporting this CD (USA, England, Greece, Spain, Sweden and a few others), so get out and catch him where you can.
