Not to Disappear received generally positive reviews from critics. Allmusic remarked the band's spontaneaous recording process wrote that the album avoided monotony while relying on dark tones and delay.[8] The reviewer for The A.V. Club found similarities to The Cure, PJ Harvey and Beach House but noted that Daughter was using these influences to enter "into new territory".[9] Awarding 2.5 out of 5 stars, the Rolling Stone mentioned singer Tonra's monotonous voice was complemented by the minimal instrumentation.[12] In a joint review, the Sonic Seducer staff found that the album combined elements of bands like London Grammar and Massive Attack in a dynamic sound that mixed indie pop, dark folk and shoegazing.[2]
