4.0 out of 5 stars Well Executed October 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Before there was the awe inspiring "More Advendturous", there was . . . the awe inspiring "The Execution Of All Things". The indie pop/rock/country band, headed by Jenny Lewis, struck a cord in 2002 but it's only til recently that listeners are heading back and exploring how the band progressed to the popular status to which they hold now. It's no mistake that these guys (and girl) just woke up one day with talent. They've had it all along. "The Execution Of All Things" is proof. It's an entertaining and some times overwhelming collection of songs that range from differnt genres.

1. The Good That Won't Come Out (8/10) Possesses a calm and constant flow for about three minutes and thirty nine seconds. Then Jason Boesel "bells" in with his drums that turn electric.
2. Paint's Peeling (7/10) Solid song with clarity that gets distorted towards the end.
3. The Execution Of All Things (10/10) Great intro (sounds like they're getting ready to play at Madion Square Park) Blake Sennett's guitar play shines throughout. Killer song!
4. So Long (10/10) Excellent mellow song, reminecent of The Shins. Sennett showcases his soothing vocal style. The music is somber yet hopeful.
5. Capuring Moods (10/10) Just beautiful. Lewis' voice is so gorgeous and clean. Great soundscape.
6. A Better Son/Daughter (9/10) Extremely relatable and catchy. It begins soft with excellent marching drums that soon become bombastic like watching a fireworks show. Sennett plays a quirky patriotic sounding solo.
7. Hail To Whatever You Found in the Sunlight That Surrounds You
(5/10) Repeatitive Country based diddy. Good but not the best, quite possibly their weakest song on the album.
8. My Slumbering Heart (8/10) Begins like "Accedental Deth" but quickly becomes poppy and bouncy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Good That DID Come Out October 4, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm going to try my best to keep my excited ramblings and nonsense to a minimum. Simply put, this album is completely solid. Not to mention having the album for over a year, but to love every song just as much as the first time I heard it -- especially after the heavy rotation it's been getting in my cd player as of late -- is remarkable.

Honestly, I can say that I've never been able to listen to one album as much as I do this one. After about the one-hundredth time I swear death to the CD and from there it collects a good load of dust-age on the CD racks.

But there is something about Rilo Kiley's beats, their sometimes eery, always melodious guitars -- and there is DEFINITELY something about jenny lewis' voice -- something that sounds just as beautiful screaming as it does crooning.

I have all three Rilo Kiley albums, and if you're a poor college student such as I, and even the price of $10 on Amazon freaks you out, and you can only afford one delicious Rilo Kiley album -- then I suggest this one. In MY opinion, after listening to all of their songs, this album seems to have the most amount of my absolute, have-to-listen-to-over-a-hundred-times, amazing songs on it. Stocked-full and ready to go for your listening pleasure.

5 stars, hands down, this shouldn't even be a topic of debate.

5.0 out of 5 stars i'm in awe October 25, 2005
By Kelso
Format:Audio CD
I'm avid music listener particulary in the 'indie rock' genre. However, Rilo Kiley had never, until recently, graced my extensive collection. Anyway, a friend of mine asked if he could borrow one of my Rilo Kiley cd's, assuming i ownded it, and I merely looked at him and told him i would get one and have been listening to RK ever since.

This particular cd of theirs just happens to be my favorite. It has a somewhat different feel than the other 2 which most people do, unfortunately, not prefer. The music has the capacity to make me feel, dare i say, warm and snuggley?, it is quite hard to explain but is certainly not the typical feeling i get from music and certainly not the type of feeling that i would ever want to go without. I love every track on this album; even if it is just one big experiment.

I spent too many years not having Rilo Kiley in my collection and i am urging you to not do the same. Just browse the tracks- i guarantee you'll be swept off your feet!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Belief June 11, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This might be the best record since 'Figure 8' by Elliott Smith, and is definitely the first time in a long time that I felt like I was listening to a band trying to tell me something that mattered. I've gotten a few of their other recordings (Jenny's solo, too) but I'm almost afraid to listen to anything else by them, I want to always love them as much as I do right now, un-jaded and awestruck.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rilo Kiley at their best May 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I think that this is Rilo Kiley's best album to date. "Take Off and Landings" was a great debut album and if you are interested in this band, check out that album first. I find that "More Adventurous" (their newest album) is their weakest effort to date but as a Rilo Kiley fan I can tolerate it. This album on the other hand is brilliant and deserves to be recognized. This is Rilo Kiley at its most mature in terms of musical craftsmanship. Great pop-rock tunes with catchy powerful lyrics which is exactly what should be expected from this talented band. Jenny Lewis is an awesome performing artist and has never sounded better than on this album. Her voice is beautiful you can tell that she poured her heart and soul into each song. Just have a listen to the title track and see for yourself. You need to be a very cynical and jaded person not to be moved by her. This album is well worth your time and its one that needs to be listened to frequently in order to appreciate its beauty.
