Pretty good, but not the Satelllites' best
Docendo Discimus | Vita scholae | 07/05/2004

"The Georgia Satellites' debut album was a surprise hit, rising to the top 5 and spawning the Billboard #2 single "Keep Your Hands To Yourself", but this 1988 follow-up went largely uinnoticed, peaking at #77 before sinking like a stone.
And that's a shame, because there is some real feel-good rock n' roll here...raw, gritty hard rock a la Stones, and highlighted by the sleazy boogie of "Mon Cheri", and a tremendous high-octane cover of Ringo Starr's "Don't Pass Me By".
But it must be said that "Open All Night" doesn't match the Satellites' debut album...most of the 11 songs are good, but too few of them are great. Dedicated Satellites fans will want it anyway, and it is certainly not a bad record, but more casual listeners will be much better served by the excellent career overview "Let It Rock - Best Of The Georgia Satellites".
3 1/4 stars for this one. Good enough, but not a necessary purchase when such a fine compilation is available."
The Georgia Satellites' Sophmore Album Is Great

"OPEN ALL NIGHT, the second album by the Georgia Satellites, is just as great as the first, and shows them loosening up their lyrical approach a little. Whereas the first one showed them praising a monogamous lifestyle, this one shows a band willing to fool around and cheat with other women on the title cut and "Mon Cheri." This CD and the other two are important purchases for anyone who thought that Southern rock's last golden moment was the Outlaws' 1980 hit "Ghost Riders In The Sky.""
