Context YMMV / Daughters

Go To

1* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Just about all of it, but especially their SelfTitledAlbum and ''You Won't Get What You Want''.* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The unnervingly quiet outro to "I Slept With Daughters And All I Got Was This Lousy Song Written About Me", which comes right the hell out of nowhere. * EpicRiff: "The Hit", "The Theater Goer", "The Unattractive Portable Head", "The Reason They Hate Me", and "Ocean Song" all provide excellent examples.* EndingFatigue: Not an extreme example, but the outro to "Ocean Song" goes on a bit long. * EvenBetterSequel: General consensus is that each album is better than the one before it. * FaceOfTheBand: Alexis S.F. Marshall is naturally this as the band's vocalist, but doubly qualifies due to his Music/GGAllin-tier antics in the band's early days. * FriendlyFandoms: With Music/{{Swans}}, due to the strong similarities between their respective styles. The fact that they've both gotten 10s from Anthony Fantano just seals the deal. ** Also with Music/{{Slint}}, due to their similar lyrical themes and DarkerAndEdgier takes on the math rock genre. In particular, fans like to draw comparisons between "The Virgin" and "Don Aman", as well as "Guest House" with "Good Morning, Captain". * SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: [[ This]] live video from 2006 (Warning: NSFW), wherein a [[AlcoholInducedIdiocy visibly drunk Lex]] is about to play the last song, has a non-conversation with an audience member and abruptly leaves when he's told the cops were arresting him for indecent exposure.** There's just something hilarious about the band's first ever recorded song being called "Hello Assholes". Other funny titles include "Room Full of Hard-ons and Nowhere to Sit Down", "My Stereo Has Mono and So Does My Girlfriend", "I Don't Give a Shit About Wood, I'm Not a Chemist", "Pants, Meet Shit", "Crotch Buffet", and "The Fuck Whisperer".* GrowingTheBeard: ''Hell Songs'' is where they really established themselves as a unique musical entity. They've grown the beard more with every subsequent album.* HarsherInHindsight: "The Virgin" comes across as an uncannily prescient prediction of the "incel" phenomenon that would become common among certain sections of young men on the internet in the mid-2010's, even ending with the implication that the protagonist's SelfInflictedHell drives them to commit a mass shooting; uncomfortably similar to incidents like the Isla Vista shootings or the Toronto van attack. * MemeticMutation: "LET ME IN!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Lyrics in "Guest House". Often paired with [[Series/TheEricAndreShow the Eric Andre]] "LET ME IN" meme[[/labelnote]]* NarmCharm: Lex's vocals on ''Hell Songs'', which have frequently been compared to a drunk cowboy, or Music/ElvisPresley being tortured. While his singing should by all rights be ridiculous and hilarious, it fits the music so well that it makes the album even ''more'' disconcerting and abrasive than it would be with regular HarshVocals. * NewbieBoom: ''You Won't Get What You Want'' caused a huge influx of new fans, especially after WebVideo/TheNeedleDrop gave it a perfect 10. * NightmareFuel: ''You Won't Get What You Want'', in spades is full of this. From the heavily abrasive sound to the lyrical themes that can be summed up as a slow, degrading SanitySlippage that goes into what seems like a StableTimeLoop with "Guest House" featuring the protagonist screaming "LET ME IN!!" and pounding on a door, implying to be the same pounding beat from "City Song".** Few albums are as accurately titled as ''Hell Songs''. The whole thing is ''so'' dissonant and abrasive it's almost uncomfortable to listen to. Special mention goes to the [[NothingIsScarier unnervingly quiet]] last two minutes of "Cheers Pricks" and Lex's heavy breathing in the background of "The Fuck Whisperer". * SignatureSong: "Satan in the Wait" for being their first new single in 8 years.** "Guest House" as well, for those who love quoting the MemeticMutation line "LET ME IN".* TearJerker: ** "Guest House" is mostly NightmareFuel, but the last minute of the song is so utterly despairing that it also counts as this.** "Cheers Pricks" is a song from the perspective of a self-loathing drug addict who is so far gone into near catatonia that all he can do is beg for a MercyKill from anyone who will listen. * TheWoobie: It's really hard to not feel sorry for Paul in "Ocean Song". Even moreso if you consider him to be the same character in "The Virgin", "The Flammable Man", "City Song", and "Guest House".
