When My Heart Felt Volcanic Review



The all-female rock band called the Aces have released their full-length debut album, that is thirteen tracks of pop and Alternative Rock mastery. The tunes have substance, the songwriting is replete with determination, the singing and harmonies confident and the pacing and styles are controlled and fashioned with care.

The Aces are: vocalist and guitarist Cristal Ramirez, her sister, Alisa, on drums, guitarist Katie Henderson and bassist McKenna Petty. All native to Utah, the band has been releasing multiple-inspired singles and a previously released EP, I Don’t Like Being Honest the summer of 2017.  When My Heart Felt Volcanic marks the band’s first full-length album. The Alternative Rock feel of the tracks have strong melodies, big full harmonies and layers of counterpoint with catchy guitar figures, which give each track a popish sensibility. Superb production, catchy upbeat compositions and genuinely emotional and cohesive lyrics fill all thirteen tracks.

The Aces are all ace. Their vocal harmonies are well-characterized by the melodies with edgy lyrics about love, life and the eternal human condition. Each tune offers catchy melodies and stellar performances. Cristal Ramirez has a memorable vocal quality and her fellow bandmates are equally talented, Henderson is especially a highlight to hear. Highly recommended.

About The Author
Shannon Smith
A fan of music my entire life. Should that be enough, well it is for me. Who buys music, the fans. Who listens to music, the fans. Like me, there are many like-minded individuals that daily search for meaningful and new music to add to their playlist, their soundtrack of life. A life without music would Bb. Yes, I have seen that saying floating around for years, and truth is, its #truth. So, may I introduce you to Shannon Smith (me). I am the editor. A music junkie that can’t get enough music in my life. A nerd (proudly), with some mad love for technology and design. It is that desire that sparked Sound in Review. Life is busy, the reviews are meant to ultimately introduce and briefly talk about the music. We have a section called SIR Quote: this is my way of saying thank you, to the countless artists making the world a place of expression. Show yours by rating each artists album, just as we have (collectively as writers), to show your support for your favorite artist.
