Nowadays, Malloy is back in business with his brand new release entitled "The Last Song". Once again, Mitch is undertaking an album solely by himself from start to finish – songwriting, producing, instruments, mixing and mastering. Mitch reveals, “For this record, I have really taken my time. In the past, I’ve usually been on deadlines..With this album, there was so much material in my head from a few years of not having a true creative outlet, so it was a lot to process. I’m thankful that I have been in a position to not rush my creativity. I’ve been tucked away in my zen zone writing and recording…and amassing lots of new gear! Ha!”
The first couple of songs that kick-off "The Last Song", "I'm Living In Paradise" and "One Of A Kind", are both classic and classy Malloy songs. Both include big riffs, passionate vocals and some killer harmonies. The 'moodier' "My Pleasure" is just great while in "I'll Find A Way" we have one more highlight out of the new album. An amazing up-tempo melodic rock song which sounds like it jumped out from Malloy's debut! The pop-rocker "Sometimes Love" and "You're The Brightest Star" are both perfect!!!
Overall Mitch Malloy 's newest effort "The Last Song" is a perfectly well-balanced record that has it's moments! And some of these moments are huge in my ears!
