Mitch Malloy is a well known name for fans of melodic rock. Here’s the talent’s third album, “Shine”, which follows up his self-titled debut and “Ceilings & Walls” – records that both included top 20 hit singles. Mitch does nothing wrong. He still delivers brilliant rock and emotional melodies, proving that you don’t have to have a depressed approach or hip hop to be successful. If you were able to turn back the time 12-15 years and release an album like this – Mitch’s name would be as familiar as Jon Bon Jovi. The opener “You Lift Me” is brilliant, the next “It’s about Love” is likewise, and I believe that – if the record companies one day decide to go with AOR with a radio friendly approach again – Mitch is the guy in lead. Seriously, I don’t think I have heard an album this brilliant in this genre since Michael Sweet from Stryper released his first solo album. Why did I miss Mitch’s first two? Well, I’ve just added two more CD’s to my “need to get”-list. Did you by the way know that Mitch for a while was considered the replacement for Sammy Hagar in Van Halen? I tell you; that was because of his talent – not his blond curls…
