  • Summary: American's favorite high school rockers have graduated and grown up, resulting in this, their fifth (and most mature) album to date.

  1. A great party record, pop-metal to a splendid degree. [Jan 2003, p.84]
  2. It's full-on, one-dimensional and perfect. It ain't clever, but it could be very big.
  3. As ballsy as anything you'll hear all year.
  4. Their songs, which at best have the dumb-fun appeal of a Joan Jett hit and at worst are forgettably rote, aren't laments or tirades but empowered commands.

    Spend The Night emerges as the dumb-riffed album Courtney Love tried to make with Celebrity Skin. [May 2003, p.94]
  6. If this disc has a weakness, it's in the somewhat "samey" feel of a couple of the songs, but at just under 40 minutes it's no biggie.
  7. Make no mistake, Spend the Night defies any post-liberation role reversal debate: The album, both musically and lyrically, is so one-dimensional, it would be equally vapid at the hands of either sex.

    The Donnas keep getting better and better. They now sound like a true 70's rock band. More Kiss than The Ramones.
