AllMusic Review by

Up All Night by Australian folk-pop group the Waifs is a sort of overly sensitive lite-folk fare, though it is not without its charm. The music is played well enough, with nice harmonies from sisters Vikki and Donna Simpson. The acoustic guitars are mixed with a bright shine, and the same might be said for many of the lyrics, which are filled with familiar imagery and clich├ęs. A few stand-out songs include the disc's opener, "Fisherman's Daughter," and one of the disc's several obligatory road songs, "London Still."
