Album Review: "The Viral Hits" By Mia X Ally (8/10)

 MXA Records 

Producers: Various 

Albany-based Mia Asano (electric violin) and Ally the Piper have gone viral time and again for their unique reimaginations of hard rockin’ songs. Their TikToks—including “5 Metallica Songs You Didn’t Know Could Bagpipe” and “Through the Fire and Flames”—have caught the attention and approval of the original players. The Viral Hits are just that, well-produced renditions of their popular covers. “Free Bird” and “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” are standouts, verging on novelty over utility, but Mia x Ally’s musicianship is undeniable!
