    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. You Won't Get What You Want is Daughters finest moment and everything I’ve wanted.

    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.

    While 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.

    Daughters have provided a soundtrack to satisfy our ghoulish intrigue with a rare beast that is both thrilling and wholly singular. Yet, however darkly disturbing You Won’t Get What You Want is at times, its matchless quality elicits awe and wonder, and strangely, that brilliance provides a surprising and curious warmth.

    Daughters have never sounded so strong and they've never got it so right. [Dec 2018, p.86]

    Daughters’ 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.

    You Won’t Get What You Want is a slow build rather than a shrieking onslaught, but it still has an inherent sense of danger.

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

    Scary, 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

    You Won't Get What You Want is one of the most authentic and deep records I've ever heard in a while. When the album gets to you, it staysYou Won't Get What You Want is one of the most authentic and deep records I've ever heard in a while. When the album gets to you, it stays inside your head for days. This is one of the most effectively horrific and bizarre experiences I've ever had in an album ever. One of the reasons why Noise Rock is such a great music genre is that in its loudness, the listener gets drowned in the music and its waves of emotion. And in this case, I got captured by the loud ambiance of this album and feel the pain, sorrow, and terror of this record. I have no more words to say for this album, other than it's a captivating and terrifying masterpiece that shall be remembered for decades to come in music history. Even though, this type of album won't be something that I'd listen to very often, it's a flawless experience that gets to me every time I listen to it (I listened to the album twice). And although this record is not for everyone, I think you should give this LP a listen either ways.

    Favorite Tracks: Satan in the Wait, The Flammable Man, The Lords Song, Daughter, The Reason They Hate Me (standout), Ocean Song, and Guest House.

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
