The sixteen-song CD and double vinyl is complimented by artwork lovingly designed by the band with a rich mix of personal photos, collages, and hand written lyrics. RKives will be available in multiple formats including a special deluxe bundle personally curated by Rilo Kiley.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful April 7, 2013
By Syriat
Format:Audio CD
The story of Rilo Kiley is not an unfamiliar one. Indie band gain cult following, slowly growing and their music gets put on shows like The OC etc and they get signed to a major label, release one album aimed at the mainstream, which fails and then they cease to be. This is their archive (get it?) material..17 tracks (one hidden) most unreleased. Most of it is very good indeed. They span their entire career and hangs together very well indeed.

Rilo Kiley are a slightly quirky indie band with Jenny Lewis' voice being an absolute marvel at every turn. Songs like It'll Get You There, A Town Called Luckey, Patiently and The Frug are as good as anything they have released. They are rocky indie pop songs with the occasional nod to a country twang. Lewis' often portrays characters in post breakup mould and there are a lot of songs here that you could feel yourself loving if you were trying to come to terms with that situation.

As a compilation is a great one. Equal to any of the albums (certainly better than Under The BlackLight). Does it have its weak tracks? Yes - the remix of Dejalo is not very good and American Wife a bit too twee. But overall this doesn't detract from a great set of songs and a band that was loved deeply by its fan base and is missed.

3.0 out of 5 stars lackluster compliation April 12, 2013
By FRANCO
Format:Audio CD
I love Rilo Kiley dearly, and it pains me that they've been apart for so long. This collection of bsides doesnt show what they are or were capable of. Yes you get some great Jenny Lewis vocals- but at the cost of bad song lyrics or uninspiring music. Yes i know b-sides dont usually carry a theme, but this collection doesnt even show progression throughout their career. Its a mish mash of rehashed (frug), forgettable (all the drugs), or down right stupid (dejalo remix?! really?!)tracks. This shows me that they have no strong desire to get back together.
Despite the rant, they're some good songs on here ('well, you left' & ' i remember you')- yet majority I already have. For RK fans only.

4.0 out of 5 stars A stellar reminder of what we've been missing April 9, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Rilo Kiley's best songs have always revealed themselves on repeated listenings, and the material on RKIVES is no exception. Most fans are already familiar with some of these tunes--the fine choice of a single "Let Me Back In" (previously the frequent show-closer "I Love LA") is presented here in a subtly orchestrated version and adorned by a typically drop-dead performance by the resplendent Ms Lewis, but a handful of others known primarily from heaven-sent YouTube uploads--the irresistibly propulsive "Patiently", the hard-edged "Emotional", the hyper-dramatic "Town Called Lucky" and "The Frug", one of the two great bratty-girl anthems that typify early Jenny along with the (maybe not so) curiously absent "Glendora". (There are glaring omissions enough to fill an RKIVES VOL.2--"Big Break", "Someone Else's Clothes", "Dead Cat", "85", "Xmas Cake"...c'mon, guys..)
The real pleasure comes with the previously unheard tracks which after a few times through seem to fit snugly in the RK canon. Hints of things to come abound, as with Jenny's languorous "Draggin' Around", which seems to foretell ACID TONGUE's "Sing A Song For Them", and the enchanting "About The Moon", abetted by the Watson Twins, predicts RFC's "Happy". Even the pedal-steel embellished "Bury, Bury, Bury Another" could be heard as a lightweight "More Adventurous". My favorite track might be "I Remember You", Jenny's duet with Benji Hughes, which reminds me of nothing so much as her delightful live star turn with Belle and Sebastian on "Lazy Line Painter Jane". What's most remarkable is how fresh yet familiar this all seems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album of 2013 December 3, 2013
By Toonoot
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is my favorite record of 2013. Rilo Kiley had a run as one of the great bands of the 2000s and this could be the best thing they ever did. It's hard to believe that songs like "Runnin' Around" and "It'll Get You There" were outtakes. They're better than most bands greatest hits.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Superior CD April 17, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow, this is archival material? It's a shame that this band has not recorded and issued an album of new material since Under The Blacklight. This CD is flat out fantastic! If you liked Rilo Kiley in the past and you're sitting on the fence about purchasing this CD you have nothing to fear. RKives is a compilation of superior songs and amazing musicianship. Don't delay and pick up this CD. You won't regret it.

I've been waiting to hear Let Me Back In on a record for the past 6 years! I also didn't think Dejalo could get any worse but it did.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best records of '13 April 15, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
On the first listen I liked this record, and probably would have given it three stars. But the more I listen to it - and I've listened to it almost every day since its release - I've come to realize that the material that has been sitting in Rilo Kiley's archive is superior to most bands' best efforts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great material with a few fillers May 27, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Let Me Back In, Patiently, Well You Left, American Wife, and Laura (and a few others) are magnificent. Just a few fillers like Dejalo remix--what's up with that?

I thought this was a new album but I guess it's a best of because it had a lot of old / rehashed songs that weren't very good and a little grating.
