Full credit to Mitch Malloy for creating 'Making Noise' as it comes across as a musician's labour of love.

Possessing arguably the most lustrous locks in Rock, Malloy Malloy – possibly best known for being Van Halen's "nearly front-man" in the mid-nineties – has, on 'Making Noise', followed in the footsteps of Richie Kotzen in the significant undertaking of handling writing duties, all instrumentation, production and, of course, vocals by himself at his studio, Malloy Master Tracks in Nashville.

Calling a song 'Rocknroll' and beginning it with a drum salvo is certainly brave... Happily it happens to be an enjoyable, succinct (at just two and a half-minutes) and effervescent opener, while 'My Therapy' is a mid-tempo contemporary Rocker with a chorus that brings to mind Aerosmith's 'Dream On', especially on its run-out.

'I Was Wrong' is a reflective ballad that betrays Malloy's Nashville location which is fair enough because, unlike the plethora of recent Rock relocators, he's been there for decades. It's a decent example of a Rock/Country crossover and stays on the right side of sentimentality. 'Life Has Just Begun' possesses a stalking guitar riff under laid by a muscular bass line, add a strong vocal performance and deft keys and you have the album's high point.

Not everything works; 'One Way' has an off-kilter guitar motif that isn't pleasant to these ears while – Giant-like intro aside – Malloy's usual inherent melody goes adrift on 'Alone'.

Full credit to Mitch Malloy for creating 'Making Noise' as it comes across as a musician's labour of love, and when he's undoubtedly able to earn far more behind the mixing desk at his studio than releasing his own material, that's especially admirable.
