Product Description

Product Description

THE DONNAS Spend The Night (2003 UK 14-track CD album of insanely catchy punk-pop from the perpetually teenaged rock n roll queens complete with full colour fold-put picture sleeve with lyrics to all songs)

Amazon.co.uk

For 2003, the Donnas invite us to Spend the Night. "It's on the Rocks" opens the evening on an anthemic note. The stoner paean "Pass It Around" appears just past midpoint and "5 O'Clock in the Morning" closes the event. What's in between? Straight-ahead drumbeats, snarling guitars and sassy vocals are the band's calling cards and they're all very much in evidence here. Songs like "Take It Off" and "Please Don't Tease" are built upon bouncing melodies that are revved by choppy pop-punk guitar and simple rhymes ("tease" and "knees," for example). The Donnas' party--"Take Me to the Backseat" included--doesn't rage so much as it embraces a kind of post-punk free love that swaggers like the Ramones circa "Rockaway Beach". Earlier episodes in the development of the Donnas came in 1999 when they reached the age where they could Get Skintight and in 2001 when the racy foursome went on to Turn 21. Now they offer us a whopper of a night. --Andrew Bartlett

I bought this album this summer while I was in Los Angeles, because The Donnas did the music for the MTV show 'Surf Girls' that I was watching (now showing here in the UK too), and it provided a great soundtrack to a killer summer. I came to Amazon UK to look up the tracknames as iTunes hadn't imported my CD properly, and as I went through all the track names I realised I could remember the chorus from EVERY single song, just from the song title. This surprised me since I'd considered all of the songs to 'sound the same', but on reflection, they're all extremely catchy and have unique hooks. The lyrics are clear, easy to remember, and totally 'feel good'. So, I felt driven to write a review, considering my opinion of the album just shot up within a few minutes.
The Donnas have been releasing albums for five years now (I think this is their fourth) but this is the first album to ride the waves over the UK in any big way. But the Donnas are not just about the music, it's the whole image of the 'chick rock' band. They're not too dissimilar from British chick punk band Kenickie (fronted by Lauren Laverne), except that The Donnas are still going, and have a much bigger Californian/surf rock influence. This album screams 'West Coast'. This is no British influence punk, it's convertibles, palm trees, and hammering down the freeway to Santa Monica. That's the whole mood of this album, and if you're stuck in a bedsit in rainy Barnet hopefully this will rub off.
There's no point in reviewing individual tracks. They're all uptempo riff-driven surf-pop-rock tracks that you can head bang to. No particularly strong tracks, no particularly weak ones, it's just a solid disc to throw in to evoke California.. much like anything by Smash Mouth, Goldfinger, or Weezer (at a push).

I first heard the Donnas shortly after the release of Take it Off in the US when I was watching Kerrang! I was impressed and immediately went and ordered the album on import. I wasn't disapointed.
From the moment you put the CD in your player, it hits you with fast rock and guitar and the pace never slows once. There are NO bad tracks on this album, and you'll soon be singing along with them.
The lyrics may not be complicated, they may not be about some higher meaning - but at the end of the day who cares when you've got fantastic tunes like these? Not me. I'll spend a night with the Donnas any day.

Awesome, the 'Lady Ramones' truly come of age, hook after hook after MF'ing hook. 14 songs, all catchy as hell, all about chasing boys (and occasionally, putting them down! ('Who invited You' 'Dirty Denim')hit Single 'Take It Off' class tuen as it is, is just another song alongside the others, such is the high Quality throughout.
The easy going lyrics of 'Take Me To The Backseat' ('Do you need a map?, Let's skip the night cap, I'll make it sticky sweet, Just take me to the backseat' 'Too Bad About you Girl' may worry their parents, but will have the lads flocking to the shows Hoping they live up to those words!.
Classic, pnky, catchy, and FUN, in a time of over political musicians, a breath of fresh (well, maybe alcohol scented) air.

This is the perfect party soundtrack for any night of the week! This is the best punk, glam rock since Bret Micheals asked you to talk to him. Yes its that good! Its oozes out fun from every song,and if your not in the mood by the time you have reached "All messed up" then I'd check your pulse.If the girls had as much fun recording it as You'll have listening to it I'm surprised they finished it. Remember to pack your lipstick, glitter and cheap cider so you can Spend the Night!

From the first riff the album careers into action, and keeps the pace for a remarkable 14 tracks. Their most mature and polished offering yet, this is a Donnas record with class. Some of the lyrics make me cringe, alot make me laugh out loud, but you can be sure there will be plenty of great riffs tunes and guitar solos galore. The Donnas are accomplished rock musicians now and their songwriting has improved as well. Enjoy.

spend the night is the donnas most complete album to date. all the tracks are great and for a major label debut it rules. donnas fans should be satisfied as its the same formula as everything else they have done. big on guitars riffs and much better production than before make this album shine the most. but it could do with 2 more slow songs to even the album out. i`m sure the donnas could write some fab funny slow songs. but this is still a high octance kick ass album that needs to be turned up loud for the full crazy effect. brett`s voice is better than ever this time plus u get a dvd with a really good "making of..." filmed on camcorder by the donnas!! its quite funny.
buy it, its the most happiest colurful album this year!

Right up alongside ZZ Top's Eliminator, Van Halen I and Appetite For Destruction. This album is flawless. Not one weak track on the whole album - every song could stand up as as a single release. Songwriting is superb, cheap and catchy with top class production bringing the guitars to the forefront, without being overbearing. It is the Donna's finest album to date, unfortunately not equalled by it's successor Gold Medal.
