I own a couple thousand CDs or so but I have never been inspired to write a reviwe for Amazon before... until now. I just picked this album up yesterday and have been listening to it nonstop ever since. This is the first time in a few years that I've been this incredibly blown away by a first listen. It's so nice to be this excited about a new CD (something that hasn't happened to me in awhile).
I'm not familiar enough with the album yet to write a detailed review... but I can say that I like every single little detail about it. From the epic songwriting to the creative musicianship to the lovely tone of Jenny's voice... this album has it all. Definitely pick this up if you're looking to be pleasantly surprised by something refreshingly unique, yet at the same time obviously inspired by some of the greatest bands of our time.

I Don't remember how I heard about this CD in the first place; maybe I read a positive review about it on pitchfork.com, but I am eternally grateful to have "discovered" this amazing album. This is the kind of album I always hope for, but only occasionally get: an album on which every track is excellent. The music is sublime and very well produced, but the best part of the CD is brought out by Jenny's introspective lyrics that paint a sonic emotional picture that is unique to this band. I can honestly say that this CD affected me in a deep way, and when music can be this honest and brutal (in a good way) then I am in heaven. I don't remember a CD that I have purchased recently that is really in this league - I give this album SIX stars - anyone who appreciates music and art of any kind will love this album. I suggest you make it a priority to give this band your precious time. You will be richly rewarded. A++ !!!

Now here's why we need independent record stores: I first heard Rilo Kiley while trying to unload some weak used CD's (one good song, lots of filler) at Rhino Records in L.A. "Execution of All Things" was playing over the store speakers, and immediately I thought -- no, can it be? -- yes, alternative rock that's actually catchy! Most alternative rock albums are vast atonal blurs of auditory sameness. But Rilo Kiley's "Execution of All Things" dares to display different tones and colors, and generally defies description. Indeed, the closest I can come to describing their sound is "Nancy Griffith with an electric guitar filtered through a David Lynch soundtrack." And that's not even close. Do yourself a favor: listen to this album. Not the samples below, but the whole thing. You may find yourself asking the same thing: "How can someone (lead singer Jenny Lewis) sound so cute yet so dark at the same time?"
I can only pick out two downsides to the entire album. First, the cover is atrociously ugly -- yeah, go ahead artsy people, call me a Philistine with no appreciation for drab blue-and-brown sketches of homely people, but you gotta admit it's ugly, and does a disservice to the sound it makes no attempt to represent. Second, and this is strictly a personal preference, but I cannot listen to cowriter Blake Sennett sing -- unless I'm in dire need of a nap. I think a general rule most male vocalists should follow is to try to sound less feminine than your female partner. But that's just me. And other than his two tracks, the album is worth repeated listening. I won't be trying to unload it at Rhino Records anytime soon.

Stunned. While that is a rare first reponse for me, that is how I am feeling after hearing this cd. I have over 2000 cds and i get about 3 new ones a week. I bought this several weeks ago and I find myself reaching for it nearly every day. funny thing is I bought it completely on a whim. It came up as one of those "others who bought what you bought bought this" that Amazon tempts you with. I bought it unheard, or unknown simply because every single one of the 28 reviews were 5 stars (except for two or so, which were 4). Pretty good endorsement.
I cannot really determine what it is that I like so much about this. I am also at a loss when trying to think of bands/styles to compare them to. There is quite a bit of musical variety here. subtlety, beauty, bursts of controlled passion tinged with anger, vocals that soar, gorgeous melodies, irish marches, drake-esque moods, the beatles.....wow, I really love this disc.

I'm not even a huge emo fan. I'm really more into goth and metal. Having said that, I listen to this album on a regular basis. I really liked 'A better son/daughter' and 'paint's peeling' and all the other tracks are awesome too. The guitar riffs are awesome and the drums are nice and slicy. Definately an album I'm glad I got.

The lyrics are excellent (unlike most music these days, they actually make sense when read :-O!) Jenny's voice is just so .. pure, the overall sound is original pop-rock gold, and after listening to the album over and over again, I'm still captivated.
They're pretty hot live too :D

This album is home to my favorite song. Maybe I don't know a thing about sophisticated music, but I get squashy when With Arms Outstretched plays. I wish they'd come to the Southeast US cause I'll meet em halfway. It's all good here.
