    At the risk of offending classicists, the Donnas are the great girl-punk group the Runaways were meant to be some 25 years earlier. Smartly, they avoid the codified copycat punk moves of the post-Green Day set and instead focus on the mid-'70s sound typified by the likes of the Ramones, the Dictators, and yes, the aforementioned rebel chicks. Accordingly, they manage the neat trick of beating the Strokes, Vines, etc. at their own game without even trying. As on their previous four (!) albums, the still-young Donnas provide a non-stop barrage of heavy guitar riffs, catchy-but-raw hooks, and plenty of pure punk energy. The fact that their pure punk/hard-rock sound never sounds contrived is a testament to the spirit and vitality that's lasted the group in such good stead throughout its existence.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (11/14/02, p.89) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Their indomitable search for fun puts out all kinds of sassy, impatient, trash-talking tentacles..."
    Entertainment Weekly (2/14/03, pp.70-71) - "...Kicky, intentionally coarse tunes with titles that say it all....their music is closer to power-pop metal than to '70s skinny-tie rock..." - Rating: B
    Uncut (5/03, p.94) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Five albums on, The Donnas miraculously remain a great idea..."
    CMJ (11/04/02, p.8) - "...The band's modern-day blend of the Ramones' punk rock and 1980s pop-metal literally drips with sass and sugary hooks so sweet it could pass for rock candy..."
    Mojo (Publisher) (5/03, p.106) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...[With] Donna R's grease-gliding guitar riffs and diesel-huffing solos, Donna C's incessant cowbell, and Donna A's wicked deflation of this kinda rock's typical machismo, out-rocking the boys without ever losing her effortless cool..."
