Excellent collection!

"This is the second Dave Mallett CD that I've added to my collection. After hearing "This Town," released in 1993, I had my hopes up for something fantastic when this one hit the shelves. I wasn't disappointed! This crafty songwriter has done it again. The theme of sadness, loss, and lonliness runs the duration of the CD. It almost seems like Mallett was in a dark place himself, when he wrote these songs; the theme matches the title, "...In The Falling Dark." "It Wasn't Supposed To Be Like That," co-written with Hal Ketchum, is a beautiful ballad and probably one of the best songs on the CD. Other cuts worth noting are "Closer To Truth," "That Was The One," "Here We Go," "Come Out Of The Blue," and "Daddy's Oldsmobile," also co-written by Hal Ketchum. Also, the lyrics are included on the insert. Buy it before it's too late!!"

"I can't stop loving Mallett's music!!! This album again contains some masterpieces. It's full of beautiful melodies, poetic & thinkful songtexts and Malletts warm bariton voice. Listen to the lyrics of "Hungry for love" and "Daddy's Oldsmobile"!!! These are my favorite songs. What's more to be said is that he co-wrote "Daddy's Oldsmobile" and "It wasn't supposed to be like this" with Hal Ketchum."
Great Writing + Performing

"Dave Mallett first came to my attention as a writer on a John Denver album with the song "Ballad of St Anne's Reel". I know why Denver (quite a songwriter in his own right) would tap the talents of an outside source like Mallett. "In The Falling Dark" came into my life just when I needed it's warm inspiration and perspective on life. All the songs are good, especially outstanding are "Closer to Truth" (a truly haunting and meaning-filled song which could have been written about 9/11--was actually written sveral years earlier) and "Hungry for Love"--about the universal and overlooked need for love by all. Thanks David, you remind us that there's always "hope for one and all.""
