NME

Almost unbearably catchy, The Aces’ debut is nothing less than bloody brilliant.

The 405

Solid pop production enhances their traditional rock band set up, universal twenty-something angst, beguiling. Emotions aren’t coddled, but there is warmth that permeates throughout the record.

Clash

It seems The Aces have achieved their goal however, to escape the indie clichés attached to pop bands using guitars, and have created a fully-fledged pop scorcher.

The Line of Best Fit

In all, When My Heart Felt Volcanic is a breezy, fun debut, but The Aces hardly stray from the road well-travelled.

If Carly Rae Jepsen and Haim had a baby.

Great debut album from the Aces. I love the youthful energy of the songs that fits the subject explored in the album. The album has no dull moment and each song feels like a lead single and I love that. I like that they didn't try to do too much on the album in terms of their sound because the cohesiveness is great. Definitely a fan now. The weakest track for me was Hurricane but even that had great build up. Hope they get the recognition they deserve.

It never quite reaches its potential, but it provides great promise for their future. A hidden gem called “Stay” was a standout for me. It almost feels a little like Paramore’s latest album but without the extra zing.

I am a sucker for pop girl groups. But The Aces really proved that i can love a band too, their music is nothing but brilliant. I adore this album and production as a whole, this may have been one of the best debuts of all time?
