Based on rating 4.5

Noise-rock luminaries Daughters have a somewhat choppy history. While musically they've always delivered, along the way there have been personal bust-ups between members that essentially broke up the band. Prior to their dissolution, they had completed their third record (which was released post-breakup in 2010) and that well received self-titled release, to all intents and purposes, should have been the last we heard of them.

Consequence of Sound - 86
Based on rating A-

The Lowdown: Eight years after their last release, post-hardcore experimentalists Daughters return with an LP that deconstructs their sound and reanimates it into a whole new sonic monster. Building off the groove and melody that informed their self-titled 2010 album, the four-piece expands and darkens the tonality, utilizing guitar effects and keyboards that sound even more alien than before. Groove remains a common element, but many tracks eclipse five minutes with moderate tempos, minimalist industrial instrumentation, and punishing drum work.

Pitchfork - 80
Based on rating 8.0/10

You know how life goes: One day you're making songs like "The Fuck Whisperer," selling hideous yellow shirts with a vagina-bat flying above your band's name, and sleeping on your ex-girlfriend's couch just to spite her current boyfriend. Years go by, and suddenly everyone's getting married and having kids; after all the actual blood, piss, and sweat that went into mocking indie culture and convention, your friends have somehow become craft brewers and commercial-music writers. Rhode Island hardcore misanthropes Daughters never seemed the sort of band compatible with the demands of adulthood.

The 405 - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Don't take it personally, but Daughters really want you to hurt. Eight years after the Rhode Island outfit's self-titled album appeared to be the end of an impressive but relatively brief career that started in grindcore and concluded in Jesus Lizard-worship noise rock, Daughters are back and they're not going through the motions; they're going through a lot. The title alone of their vicious assault of a comeback album, You Won't Get What You Want, sends a sharp warning to fans: They aren't here to appease you.
