Oct 25, 2018Whatever voodoo made their unapproachable sound so damn fun and cathartic is completely gone. In its place is a something altogether darker and uglier, but ultimately more brilliant and enrapturing than ever before. You Won't Get What You Want is Daughters finest moment and everything I’ve wanted.
Oct 25, 2018Fans hoping for a repeat of the accessibility and groove of the self-titled album or the spasticity and rawness of earlier albums might be disappointed, but You Won’t Get What You Want is a brave and excellent addition to Daughters’ discography.
Oct 25, 2018While aspects of the band's creative vision have been altered and their sound has further evolved, the core elements remain intact. The asphyxiating sound has been augmented with the inclusion of longer, heavier sludge influenced moments. ... They truly deliver.
Dec 4, 2018It is just such a cut above everything they’ve done that it warrants a listen from anyone into fearless and challenging, yet still melodic, experimental rock. It's their finest work, and probably this year's best rock album.
Nov 9, 2018Daughters’ accessibility is directly proportional to their uncompromising compositional choices—hypnotic dissonance, martial drums cranked to incapacitating volumes, scathing vocal repetition, all rendered through impossibly vivid production. This is not music interesting in growing on you: it consumes and dominates.
Dec 7, 2018In looking to capture the ugliness of humanity and parse through the despair that slithers malevolently in its wake, Daughters have crafted their most vital outing to date.
Nov 1, 2018You Won’t Get What You Want is a slow build rather than a shrieking onslaught, but it still has an inherent sense of danger.

Oct 26, 2018Scary, dark, disturbing, weird, hypnotic, and euphoric. Those are the best words to describe this album. From the opener til the end, thisScary, dark, disturbing, weird, hypnotic, and euphoric. Those are the best words to describe this album. From the opener til the end, this beast does not let up. It is a perfect album for this time of year, with Halloween just around the corner. It's not quite perfect because the opener could've used a little more something, but outside of that I can't really find a flaw. The synths and drums drip dread and uneasiness at every moment throughout the entirety of the album. Definitely check this record out if you want something original and strange.… Expand

Oct 26, 2018It's like Daughters never disappeared for 8 years. This is one of those albums that comes along every decade or so, and changes the landscapeIt's like Daughters never disappeared for 8 years. This is one of those albums that comes along every decade or so, and changes the landscape of music. It is a work of controlled, passionate anger and emotion, that progresses like a suspenseful horror film. While it is much different than Daughters' previous releases, it is still propelled by insane instrumentation, sudden turns, and sadistic vocals. There is something for every kind of Daughters' fan here, and that is an achievement in of itself. This is their masterpiece and most likely my favorite album of the year.… Expand
Nov 3, 2018A **** show of a record, in the best way to put it. It kind of pisses me off the fact that many people won't appreciate it because of theA **** show of a record, in the best way to put it. It kind of pisses me off the fact that many people won't appreciate it because of the limited scope this genre has, and when an outstanding record as this comes out and even though it receives critical acclaim and such, it still walks unnoticed by many. But somehow, Daughters and You Won't Get What You Want represent a true form of cult music which is not interested in or made to be in the spotlight. We might not have the latest Swans line-up anymore, but 2018 gave us this, and in a friendly comparison, I'd say I'm horrifiedly glad I've given myself a chance to dig into this album. It's a nightmare; one that makes you feel like a psycho every time you seem to enjoy it.… Expand
