|The first nine songs are great. #10 & 11 are a little weak but this album is worth every penny you sink into it. I can't believe I still listen to this cd today after first picking it up in 1992. A lot of people missed it the first time around, dont miss it anymore!!!

|Great album, way underrated, almost every song is a potencial single
||Date: May 21, 2002 at 1:25|
|Pretty decent cd. Track 1 is my favorite on this cd, but the rest are good too.
||Date: July 12, 2002 at 12:01|
|A great singer, Mitch rocks and soothes, I love his songwriting style, I have his single 'I still believe in you' which is outstanding.
||Date: July 14, 2002 at 9:34|
|Mitch's voice can do amazing things and sometimes he even reminds me of Freddy Curci. James was right about this one not catching everyone's radar back when it was released. I was one of those people who missed out only to re-discover it for its countless AOR merits. If you like David Cassidy's s/t from 1990 or Michael O'Brien or Freddy Curci 'Dreamer's Road', I would recommend Mitch Malloy.

|Great production, vibe, and songwriting make this an absolute gem of an album. My only gripe is it would be perfect with the exclusion of track 4. But that's just me.

|I love this cd!!!! His vocie reminds me of Joey Tempest esp in the first song! 9/10

|Holy shit! I remember this one. 'Anything At All' was a rather minor hit back in the early summer of '92, as I recall. Used to really dig that song, never bought it, and found the song on a blank tape I recorded back then, just the other week. Not a bad song either, if a little lighter than my normal fare.

|Rock-AOR de sonido americano 100%.Tipicos temas que te entran rapidamente,por lo tanto seguramente gustará a mucha gente,buena producción y en general disco de BUEN NIVEL.
||Date: January 2, 2003 at 19:33|
|An absolute jewel! No entiendo como algo de este nivel no está más valorado. Este disco es fundamental para entender el hard rock melódico.

|Does anyone have the new cd Malloy 88??? if it is as good as this I need to get it.
||Date: July 22, 2003 at 19:00|
|James, its not as good as this one, the style is quite different - its still above average hair metal on most of the tracks, but it doesn't touch this gem.
||Date: August 8, 2003 at 0:23|
|James, the Malloy 88 cd is brilliant, I like it the best, great songs, melodies and Mitch malloys voice never sounded so good. I can't stop listening to it, it's so upbeat. jay from Australia.

|Mitch Malloy rules!!!! I have every cd of his and I am always in the mood to listen to him!!! Why he does'nt get more exposure is anybody's guess!! I am an 80's Glam/Sleaze metal fan and I think his music stacks up with some of the classic albums within the genre if only to say it is a little more on the Pop side but thats ok with me!!! Keep rockin' Mitch!!!!!!
||Date: November 16, 2003 at 11:04|
|what about ceiling and walls his second album? Don't you like it hh owner or is it too soft to be part of heavy harmonies? I really like Mitch Malloy but I think his latest album Mitch 88 is not as good as the first two albums and it will never be that would be imposible guys. By the way check out ceilings and walls his second release it's another gem eventhough it's not hard/rock aor or whatever you wanna call it but it's totally worth a spin. later guys.
||Date: November 16, 2003 at 14:19|
|aormilwaukee, I just got that CD a few weeks ago. It is a very soft mellow CD, but the production is great. The songs are written well and the musicians sound very tight. My sister-in-law loves the soft Journey, so I gave it to her and she really loves Mitch's voice. I'll stick to his self titled

|Look the fisrt comment... Is Track 10 weak??? R U drunk? By the way... if I was drunk, I'd be listening to '#10-Forever' drivin' on the streets with some girls... What a gem!

|Can someone please submit 'Ceiling And Walls'? Thanksyou.
|From: AOR freaky
||Date: May 18, 2004 at 7:55|
|Why submit 'Ceiling And Walls' ? This here is the only great Mitch Malloy CD ! CAW is a bad, boring and very soft/alternative CD ! This is the real Malloy !
||Date: May 22, 2004 at 1:25|
|Essential in every aor collection, absolut late 80's masterpiece. Songs 3 and 6 are unmatchables. Outstanding.

|Hey Arnold- Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and lets talk some Mitch Malloy. He is a North Dakota rocker. I am a Minnesota Rocker.
||Date: June 15, 2004 at 10:17|
|I totally disagree with you AOR freaky. I think Ceiling And Walls is Mitch's best album. Top notch songwriting that is rarly matched!
|From: TIM (2)
||Date: June 25, 2004 at 5:59|
|I quite liked 'Ceilings and Walls' too, had an awesome track 'Ready to Go Home'. Had too many ballads on though. This was his best album, and is available so cheaply now you'd be a fool not to get it. Powerful vocals, crystal-clear production, barely a filler in sight. Just listen to him sing those ballads... awesome.
||Date: July 16, 2004 at 0:27|
| I loved this guy in the early 90's and the songs 'Anything at All', 'I still believe in you' among others, I never bought his album and I should have cause I want to hear those songs again, I never understood why he wasn't more popular!...he's not bad looking either! lol ...anyone want to talk about him and his music? :-)
||Date: August 22, 2004 at 5:41|
|'Nobody wins in this war' is by far my pick of this album, and probably of his whole career - truly spectacular ballad, but 'Stranded' and the wonderful 'Forever' (Though I probably prefer the '88 version) are killer tracks too. Really good voice, great sound and a good solid melodic rock / commercial rock album!
||Date: September 10, 2004 at 3:26|
|Holy crap. I've had this CD for 3 years now and I never thought anything here was good except for the opener, Anything At All. As I type this I'm rediscovering the album and you're right Geoff, 'Nobody Wins...' is awesome!! How did I miss that song?! I'm in serious need of self punishment. *bangs head on desk*
||Date: September 10, 2004 at 3:33|
|WTF?! This is great! Just got done listening to 'Stranded' and it sounds like something left off of Kane Roberts' Saints & Sinners CD. I obviously didn't give this a proper listen because none of these songs sound familiar. Anyway, thx for the review Geoff. I had a feeling if you loved it I would too, especially since I couldn't seem to remember any of the hooks. It took 3 years, but I'm listening to it for the first time now. Looks like I have something to listen to while I wait for your CDs

|Most people don't know this, but Mitch Malloy was supposed to join Van Halen before Gary Cherone was ever picked. He even did a few demo's with them, but pulled out. He didn't feel as if his voice fit the band. Read Here: http://www.melodicrock.com/interviews/mitchmalloy.html
||Date: September 11, 2004 at 1:16|
|Very good melodic rock. I too missed this back in the day only to rediscover it thanks to this site. Anything at All, Nobody Wins, Cowboy and the Ballerina all are standout tracks. Only song that I skip is Mirror, Mirror. A weak ballad. Mitch's voice is great. Pick this one up. You will not be disappointed.
||Date: November 5, 2004 at 7:02|
|Wonderful CD! When I picked up this one I didn't expect very much, but at the first listen I was blown away! Great melodies, fantastic choruses and hooks: my favourite song is 'Stranded in the middle of nowhere'. Buy it!
||Date: December 20, 2004 at 19:06|
|This guy is the best rock singer alive!!!... This is one of the best cd's in my collection... 10/10
||Date: December 20, 2004 at 20:49|
|GREAT WORDS HOWE!!!ONE OF THE BEST RELEASE(AND VOICES)OUT IN THIS 20 YEARS!!BUT THERE'S PEOPLE WHO SAYS THAT R.TEPPER/no easy way out IS A MASTERPIECE!!AH AH AH!!!EXCEPT THE TITLE TRACK IN ONE OF THE MOST GREAT DELUSION EVER HEARD!!(IN MY OPINION)...W MITCH MALLOY/S.T.!!!!
||Date: January 31, 2005 at 3:17|
|Absolute highlight of the genre!! Well, everything that has Desmond Child as producer is bound to become classic material! If you like bands like Giant, Torben Schmidt, Europe (Prisoners era) you won't go wrong here!!

|one word only to describe this album....WWOOOOWWWW !!!!!!!!!
||Date: March 14, 2005 at 21:14|
|Just bought this on CD because i missed listening to the first track which i have on tape. It's bloody brilliant. High quality and well produced melodic rock. If you haven't got this then buy it now because in 2005 it sounds great! Anything at all is so much better on CD than on tape, sounds like a different song - crystal clear. There is nothing better than finding a gem from the 'hair' days which you've never heard, and then enjoying it 12/13 years later! Quality 8/10.
||Date: April 5, 2005 at 8:28|
|Mitch Malloy - great voice/great tunes. 'Stranded.....' is an absolute classic ! Agree with comments here that this is his best work. A huge melodic release with a good mix of rockers and ballads.
||Date: April 22, 2005 at 19:30|
|Desmond child, huh? I thought as much, the songwriting is very strong. The music is as cool as Mitch's hair, big time and over the top, awesome stuff. This is a classic stuff ladies and gents, a shiver down the spine and a tear in the eye; the nostalgia will hit you! What's Mitch doing now, anyone?
||Date: April 22, 2005 at 19:38|
|...and to answer my own question in case anyone is interested - he's now the singer in 'Fluidsol' (2004 release).

|Great music from a great musican. I love this CD. This is great AOR. I like that stuff.

|Love this album Mitch has an AWESOME voice great songs total AOR...KEEP ROCKIN ALL!!!

|I love the super ballad ''Our love will never die''.
|From: Rob Rocker
||Date: January 23, 2007 at 11:22|
|What stands out to me is that on top of having an amazing voice, he gives 1100n performance. You can here the passion and energy on every song. My favorite tracks are, 'Anything at All' and 'Over the Water'. The only song I don't care for is the ultra sappy 'Mirror, Mirror', it sounds like something from a Disney movie soundtrack or teeny bopper movie.
||Date: August 9, 2007 at 9:50|
|'Nobody Wins in this War' is the best one here. Couple other good tunes but all in all this album was a major disappointment..
||Date: August 9, 2007 at 10:56|
|Oops, sorry. 'Stranded in the Middle of Nowhere' is the best, 'Nobody Wins in this War' is a close 2nd.
||Date: June 1, 2008 at 12:07|
|HUGE CD 93/100 / MELODIC ROCK/AOR at it's best agree with some comments about the fact that's his best work so far his masterpiece The voice is remembering MARK BOALS(RISING FORCE/BILLIONAIRES BOYS CLUB/RING OF FIRE) a lot......SO VERY GOOD POINT The prod is HUGE
||Date: August 24, 2008 at 18:45|
|The song "Nobody Wins in this War" is probably one of my favorite songs of all time. I remember picking this up back in 1992. The only other songs I like on this album are "Problem Child" and "Stranded in the Middle of Nowhere".

||Date: January 17, 2009 at 16:10|
|Yeah! Great Melodic or commercial Rock or as i call simply AOR! "Nobody Wins in this War" "Stranded in the Middle of Nowhere" or the commercial "Anything at All" my faves... Definately A must Have. 8.8/10
|From: Doghouse Reilly
||Date: August 9, 2010 at 9:34|
|I found "Anything At All" the other day on an old cassette tape I'd recorded off the radio back in '92. I guess this was what you might call a minor hit, but it seemed to be only top-40 stations that played it, not AOR or rock stations. Even at the time, this sounded a little bit out-of-place, like maybe it belonged in the mid-'80's. And I'm not just talking about the grunge thing either: just about all forms of hard rock had toughened up by '92, enough so Malloy's music sounded anachronistic. Good songs are good songs, I guess, even if Desmond CHild had his mitts all over it, and even if Mitch does sound kinda like a male Cher.

|After having a very nice chat with Mr Mitch Malloy himself through the facebook,i decided to add a more complete review about this album (i did a brief comment back in 2005,at that time i didn't use the signs "vzla")anyway talking about an album has to be under very accurate circunstances,why?,well mainly because you deal with many other reviewers that might find "exagerations" in adjectives or don't find too much attractiveness in the album and so on...(it doesn't seem 2 be a problem in this album at all as you can see,all comments are very good ones! )...listening to songs such as the opener "Anything At All","Nobody Wins In This War","Stranded In The Middle Of Nowhere" & "Mirror Mirror" just to name a few,transports you to not just top notch songs but also to great composition stardom..anyway for those who does not know about this talented singer/composer,buy this album and face the fantastic side of music....95/100
||Date: February 6, 2011 at 14:35|
|I don't typically enjoy the AOR stuff, but this album is so well-written and sung with such heartfelt emotion, that listening to it invokes more pleasure than tossing kittens into a shark tank. Allying himself with mega-producer/songwriter Desmond Child was a very smart move and resulted in some super-catchy melodic rock gems backed by crystal clear production. It's unfortunate this CD made such a miniscule dent back in its day, because all the ingredients were there for commercial success, and nothing Mitch has done since has even come close to touching it. This can be picked up pretty cheap, but even if it was way more expensive, it would be worth its weight in gold.

|excellent debut by MITCH MALLOY back in 92 when hard rock music ruled the planet.Sir Arthur Payson produces perfectly and the musicians included are very good and accurate.the songwriting is of the highest level and Mitch shows his fantastic voice !highlights are "anything at all","stranded in the middle of nowhere","nobody wins in this war" and "cowboy and the ballerina".i have the feeling that this one should have been a big seller!
||Date: September 10, 2011 at 21:09|
|Mitchs best album ever!!!
||Date: October 16, 2021 at 20:51|
|What is there left to say? Mitch's voice is top notch. songs are tight. Killer cd! I mean, C'MON WHO else could sing a song about a "cowboy and a ballerina" and make it sound THAT GOOD??!!! Keep Rockin' Y'All
