12/30/18, Decent review:
I don't think this album is as mind-blowing as people are hyping it up to be, but it's not that bad. The instrumentation/production on this album is good, but, I just don't find it to be THAT special. I found their previous album to be pretty good, better than this one in my opinion, and a comparison of production may be a pretty big reason why I feel this way. On that album the sounds were a lot crisper, stickier, and layered with complexity, while on here it's a lot mushier and toned-down, to my ears. When the noise on a noise-rock album is not that noisy, I'm stuck focusing more on the vocals/lyrics, and on this album, the vocal-performances seem particularly lousy, with them not adding that much to the album, almost always understated by the instrumentation/production. Alexis has done better before. 'You Won't Get What You Want' is also a bit of a mess to me, and when I mean mess, I mean that the ideas presented on here don't really come together by the end, with some tracks just ending with no signs that it was going to happen, and some tracks that just start with no real good transition or intro. I noted how this album is a bit messy, but this album really doesn't work best unless it's heard front to back as a whole, so maybe I'm just counteracting my own argument here. When searching for substance other than noise, spectacular noises albeit, is not that easy; and it's just overall, a sadly uneventful album that over stays it's welcome just a little bit. Again, I'm cool with this album, but it's nothing near "the best album of this decade" or "the best noise-rock album of all-time (or, "of this decade")."

as someone who was a daughters fan before the album and didn't just get into them because *FANTANO 10/10* a big appeal to their music was how messy and disjointed things were - at least, for me. imo it makes the album as a whole feel very chaotic and almost kind of fun, and this trait extends to their entire discography, especially albums like Hell Songs and Canada Songs

that being said anyone who says this is the best noise rock album of all time has prob not listened to noise rock before
