First rate melodic rock album

"Man, this is an amazing melodic rock album that came just a few years too late. Mitch Malloy is an incredible vocalist with a set of pipes that are just perfect for arena rock. The only problem is that by the time he released his 1992 self-titled debut, arena rock was already being shown the door by Nirvana and company.
That, of course, doesn't change the fact that this is a first rate AOR/melodic rock album along the same lines as the Brian Howe Bad Company albums, Alias, and Signal. You know the kind of soaring emotional love songs and upbeat rockers that seemed everywhere as the 80's were drawing to a close. Malloy could belt out those songs with the best of `em (he reminds me a lot of Europe's Joey Tempest) and he was a first class songwriter too. "Anything at All" and "Mirror, Mirror" are incredible singles, and the rest of the album is of a similar quality.
If you're an AOR fan, Mitch Malloy's debut is an absolute must-have album. The sad fact is, they just don't make `em like this anymore."

"Mitch has an amazing voice! He just recently played at Firefest in England and apparently still has it. Why he didn't make it big is beyond me. Strong voice and a big range. Great writing! Buy this now if you like melodic rock."
Lovely album with a bang and a big swing

"Bought this album after hearing "Anything at all" at Rock City, the #1 rock venue in the UK. It's a top-notch recording with a bang, a big swing and lots of fun, sung with spirit, flair & passion. No wonder Eddie van Halen was impressed and wanted Mitch as their lead singer in 1996. I'd not be surprised if Eddie and Alex joined him on his next album to make good. "Cowboy and the Ballerina" is a 15-second melody box tune turned into a track that waters the mouths of Bob Seger, John Cougar Mellencamp and Southside Johnny. Like Mellencamp, Mitch Malloy should be played loud; using Mark Levinson or similar high-quality amps greatly increases the fun."
