All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Bad Girls marked the high-water mark in Donna Summer's career, spending six weeks at Number One, going double platinum, and spinning off four Top 40 singles, including the chart-topping title song and "Hot Stuff," which sold two million copies each, and the million-selling, Number Two hit "Dim All the Lights."

The result was the artistic and commercial peak of her career and, arguably, of disco itself.
