    On her debut full-length Dev goes (slightly) deeper. [30 Mar 2012, p.75]

    The Night the Sun Came Up is a track-by-track success, offering readily accessible bits of dance-pop sass or dance-pop bliss whenever they're desired.

    California club pop chirper Dev's debut is as stark as it is sweet.

    The Night the Sun Came Up fails to back up her claim that she's more than just a Ke$ha clone.

    Very impressive pop album, especially considering only three people made it. The songs are all different from each other, and have a variety of styles. The best songs are Take Her From You, Lightspeed, Dancing Shoes, Shadows and Killer. The only negative thing I would say about the album is that Dev's rapping isn't so great... she's an awesome singer though.

    Great debut. 9/10
