Hardcore Daughters lovers will probably have plenty of bones to pick with this album. For everyone else, Daughters is a feast to be savored.

Daughters ended their career (until further notice) with a self-titled record that was partially disheartening, as their songwriting only marginally improved because it was countered by a sonic dissonance that never allowed for any significant dynamics. But that’s what Daughters wanted; an album recorded as max volume to be played at max volume.
Alternative Press

The drums and bass on their new, self-titled album create a punishing bedrock for the songs to set in, there's a semblance of melody in some parts, and when the band's trademark guitar stings pierce through Alexis Marshall's Danzig-esque howl, they're well paced and plotted.

Now far removed from their grindcore past, Daughters are all the better for it on their third album.
The Needle Drop
Daughters' self-titled album is one of the best punishments I've had all year. In terms of being noisy and aggressive as hell, it's almost up there with that Little Women album I reviewed, but I could see this LP coming across as being a lot more accessible than that one.
Metal Injection
The experimental band is out in full force with “Daughters,” arguably creating their most finely crafted effort to date.

Daughters have been described as everything from mathcore or math metal to alternative metal to grindcore, but noise rock is the term that best captures Daughters in 2010 -- and make no mistake: this is an extremely noisy album.

Under The Radar
There's no giant compromise here: it's still a huge wreck of noise, ruthlessly delivering the Providence staples of dueling dissonant guitars and frantic bombast.
As insane and off the wall as their previous albums, but with a much groovier, fun, accessible and demented attitude that works wonders for the bands sound. The production has is exquisite here, perfectly capturing Daughters chaotic sound, and by god is it chaotic. It's almost idiotic how good, catchy and accessible this album sounds despite how crazy and off the wall this album gets, with each track delivers something new and interesting, all while still maintaining the almost scary riffs and ... read more
Daughters’ self-titled album is a more accessible and catchy, yet more head-crushing and groovier beast than its predecessors. The scary guitar riffs, great writing and noise rock sound make this a greatly cohesive record for its short runtime.

Fav Tracks: Our Queens (One Is Many, Many Are One); The Hit; Sweet Georgia Brown; The Virgin; The Unattractive, Portable Head; The Theatre Goer

Least Fav Track: Idk... yeah nah

Is it weird that I enjoyed this more than You Wont Get What You Want?
Daughters delivers the level of aggressiveness that many metal bands wish they had. Even despite the aggressiveness of Daughters, this might be the record easiest on the ears, with more focus on delivering a consistent project worth listening to.
BANG CRASH BOOM!!! Here are some of the sounds off of Daughters' self-titled album, with its short runtime it for sure packs a supermassive punch.

Now as many of you know I adore You Won't Get What You Want, the newest LP from Daughters, I haven't listened to much of Daughters' back catalogue until now. Daughters' S/T is a phenomenal release and I adored every second of it, while it is a sparse release it feels so full of energy and so explosive that it never fails to impress me and never ... read more
