  • Summary: The seventh album for the California-based band.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 14
  2. Negative: 2 out of 14
  1. What keeps Bitchin' from being more fun than Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson's sex tape is Jay Ruston's production job. [Nov 2007, p.170]
  2. At times it's hilarious, especially the song openings, which evoke poodle-rock heroes in mock affection, but the tracks then go somewhere inconceivably cool, twisting, shimmering and generally rocking in drool-worthy style.
  3. 60
    It's business as usual. [Nov 2007, p.98]
  4. The Donnas get the ball into the red zone from time to time on Bitchin', but they never really score.
  5. The entire album sounds like a half-hearted compromise between what the group was and what the group wants to become.
  6. 40
    The Donnas have never seemed less enthused; none of the 14 tracks contains a melody as catchy or a beat as pumping as those on "Spend the Night" or "Gold Medal." [Oct 2007, p.99]
  7. Go on, drink whiskey from the bottle, see if I care. But when you’re done, don’t jump around like gracelessly ageing Bratz dolls playing late-era Kiss and think you’re a blistering she-Crue.
