"Nina Gordon's solo debut Tonight And The Rest Of My Life has the former Veruca Salt member distancing herself from the band's catchy indie-rock to a more slickly-produced, mellower sound with Lilith Fair-type confessional lyrics. The entire album is all style with very little substance, but then again, Gordon's output in Veruca Salt, which includes the killer singles 'Seether' and 'Volcano Girls', was never that deep to begin with. What Gordon does possess, though, is a real gift for writing songs with a hook. That's most evident in the soaring title track, which is one of the more memorable songs I've heard this year. Gordon adopts the same songwriting style in other songs like '2003', 'Horses In The City', 'Got Me Down', 'Fade To Black' and 'Hold On To Me'. It's when Gordon chooses to rock out like she used to do in her old band that the album really picks up: 'Now I Can Die', 'Badway', 'New Years Eve', and especially 'Number One Camera' are terrific powerpop songs. At times Bob Rock's heavyhanded production gets in the way, especially in the last three songs on the album: 'Slow To Ride' is a failed attempt at a country-tinged ballad, 'Hate Your Way' is a slow, uninteresting, whiney song, and the nauseating cover of 'The End Of The World' seems to be preparing Gordon for a new career of singing cheesy Disney movie songs. As long as Gordon remembers to stay in the pop rock mold and not have her head in the clouds so much, she'll continue prove she's a genuine talent. After listening to Tonight And The Rest Of My Life and Veruca Salt's bitter, very disappointing new album, it's clear where the real talent in Veruca Salt lied, and it's a good thing that Nina Gordon left the band when she did."
Exceptional solo debut from former Veruca Salt member

"When musicians break away from bands to pursue solo acts, the result can either be a good one or a bad one. The transition for Nina Gordon to go from her previous band, Veruca Salt, to a solo career is an example of such good results. With her solo debut, Nina Gordon displays her strong vocal talents, as well as an ability to write songs that can go from mellow ("Tonight and the Rest of My Life," "2003") to lovesick ("New Year's Eve") to aggressive ("Badway," "Hate Your Way"). Nina sings about various subjects, such as discovering the meaning of love ("Now I Can Die"), the feeling of being out of place ("Horses in the City"), the emptiness of seeing an ex-boyfriend at a party [sample lyric: "I'm here/ The party's all around me/ You're there, indifference has found me"] ("New Years Eve"), and more about falling in and out of love. She also does a fine job with her own rendition of the classic song "The End of the World" [not the R.E.M. version] This is the type of album where you don't feel like skipping over particular songs, because there aren't any songs to skip over; the whole album is worth listening to. From the rock-out guitar riffs to Nina's airy yet strong voice, you can't help but want to sing along. Nina is no longer in Veruca Salt, but with this album, she tells us she still knows how to rock...and then some."
