The Needle Drop

Daughters return with the most effectively terrifying album I've heard all decade.


Whatever 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.

Consequence of Sound

Fans 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.


By far their most dynamic offering, Daughters have pulled off one of the great comeback albums and further cemented themselves as a band with such singular creativity that they're nearly peerless.


Considering the band's output so far, You Won't Get What You Want is the perfect return for Daughters. While aspects of the band's creative vision have been altered and their sound has further evolved, the core elements remain intact.

Records like this suggest rock has a long and illustrious future ahead of it, and that in some instances the creative well is far from dry. With Halloween on the horizon, Daughters have provided a soundtrack to satisfy our ghoulish intrigue with a rare beast that is both thrilling and wholly singular.

Even if Daughters are not a band you would normally gravitate towards, You Won’t Get What You Want deserves every ounce of praise that it gets and should be heard regardless and tastes. Not only is it one of the best (and rather unexpected) comeback albums in recent memory, it’s an album that is as genuinely terrifying as any piece of music or horror movie could ever hope to be.

The 405

Everything about You Won’t Get What You Want is carved out of sheer insert-synonym-for-unhappiness-here, from the guitars to the drums to the vocals, but there’s more than enough nuance and versatility to earn your respect, even if it’s not something you’re typically drawn towards.


These hardcore miscreants never seemed like a band suited for reunions, so their first album in eight years reimagines their prior intensity with blown-out, abstracted menace.

Northern Transmissions

It is a head-spinning disintegration trip, windows and walls crashing down around a frightened subject, narrated by an at times frantic, at times resigned, and at times poetically inclined author.

Rolling Stone
If heavy music is supposed to be scary, Daughters have elevated it to an invigorating new level.
Am I allowed to give 2 100's in a year? Cause like... wow... this is one of the best albums of the decade

I listened to each album from Daughters, and found a lot of quality in their discography... but this brought absolutely everything. I have a feeling that if you just leap into this album, the incredible pacing and atmosphere will instantly grab onto you, and drag you into the abyss that is this beast of an album. Trust me when I say this thing is a journey. It is the first Daughters album ... read more
I don't get it. It definitely had some interesting moments but I don't get the hype. Nothing about it stands out that much for me to greatly appreciate. Sounds like a typical bandcamp noise rock album.

Edit: watch the user score peak after that 10/10 from Fantano. Interesting how large his influence is, especially on this website.
Jesus, this is brutal in all the right ways. It's like Swans on speed.

Varied songs and even manages to have a well-paced arrangement, despite the seemingly relentless energy. Less Sex is a gem of a song and The Lords Song gets me so hyped.
This might be hype BUT HOLY HECK THIS ALBUM IS A 10/10. The atmosphere it builds, it just embraces you. From start to finish you get these different amazing instrumentals, the powerful vocals, the haunting lyrics and just a great experience. It's loud, it's powerful, it's eerie and it's absolutely fantastic.
It's like if Daughters made a bargain bin equivalent of "The Downward Spiral" B-Sides. This record is great musically and artistically like Iredencense from Brockhampton...but like Iredencense this record really lacks anything organic or an identity of it's own. Yeah, it sounds like MC Ride produced it or Swan sped up but what makes Daughters....Daughters? Not to mention I could listen to these other artists and gave a better overall experience. I feel like I've heard these sounds on ... read more
