Not to Disappear received generally positive reviews from critics.[7] Annie Zaleski of The A.V. Club found that Daughter's "brutal lyrical honesty" sets them apart from their musical influences, including The Cure, PJ Harvey and Beach House.[9] Sonic Seducer wrote that the band had created a dynamic mixture of indie pop, dark folk and shoegazing that reflected influences from bands such as London Grammar and Massive Attack.[2] Marcy Donelson of AllMusic wrote that despite its reliance on "sound-defining delay, a dark tone palette, and friable vocals", the album avoids monotony.[8] By contrast, Rolling Stone found that the minimal instrumentation emphasizes the monotony of Tonra's "gorgeous, but largely static" vocals.[15]
