Rilo Kiley stands out in the crowded world of contemporary rock music. As true artists, they perform the kind of music that only they could possibly create. "Take Offs & Landings" conveys their unique band sound, great songwriting, and playful lyrics. The song "Pictures of Success" is destined to become a classic. Melodic, dynamic, organic, and best of all, timeless, Rilo Kiley deserves to be heard.

Bands like Rilo Kiley depress me. I mean, here is a band that has so much going for them, yet you just have to wonder where their place is in a music scene dominated by 15-year-old debutants, corporatized gangsta rappers and second generation Pearl Jam ripoffs. I love this band more than I can convey in words and yet I gotta ask what is in it for them? A couple indie releases and then what?
Having said that, there is no reason why you shouldn't order this album immediately. This is one of the few CDs that has totally impressed me in ages. These guys are already at the top of their game, and seeing them live recently just reinforced my admiration for all they have accomplished. They are truly rock stars in their own right, and it is just a darn shame that they are selling out the Troubadour when they should be selling out the Hollywood Bowl.
How Jenny and Blake remain optimistic enough to produce such beautiful and unaffected music is a testament to their talent and intelligence. Let's hope they receive some encouragement with their next release, because music like this deserves to be celebrated.

got the album about 2 months ago. can't stop listening to it. just saw them for the first time at the knitting factory LA. they blew me away. from quiet acustic whispers to roaring fuzz, sometimes in the same song, this band exemplifies the sound and spirit of the indie rock movement that came to the fore in the early 90's. but it's no rehash. it's all new, exiting, and fresh. call it superchunk meets uncle tupelo meets liz phair meets tortoise meets pell mell meets throwing muses. in a world dominated by pre-packaged teen sensations and weak metal/rap hybrids with no musical ability and nothing to say, rilo kiley is a breath of fresh air and then some. quirky lyrics, infectious melodies, and the ability to pack an emotional punch make this one of the freshest, most interesting recordings to come down my musical pike in a while. buy it and enjoy

I'm not a big indie fan, or a big anything fan for that matter. I'll like a band or song here and there, but generally I shift through 'phases,' if you will, ranging from punk to rap to k-pop and opera. But I've absolutely adored Rilo Kiley since I first heard them about a year ago.
The vocals are amazing, with sort of an innocent sincerity, they're somehow absolutely profound. Coupled with relevant lyrics that either address new issues or put twists on cliche topics (lust, break ups, etc), the album's replay level is oddly high. I've whored it innumerable times and haven't even neared getting sick of it. Song structure also helps in making Rilo Kiley's sound distinguised and unique.
buy it! really!

I saw Rilo Kiley live, playing with the beautiful Ozma. I wasn't particularly enthusiastic about their show, but I liked a few of the songs I heard, so I bought the CD. From the merch table, because I like indie bands and merch is a happy thing. Bored, waiting for a ride home, I opened the CD up and was amazed by how adorable the art was, and how much of a concept album it seemed to be. SEEMED being the key word, because although the whole thing is built around an airplane, most of the songs are love songs, as it should be.
It's a beautiful album, wonderful to sleep to. Whether you're in love, as I am, or have just broken up with someone, it will soothe you. Which is rare for a bunch of love songs.

Take-offs and Landings is the epitome of excellent. Carefully sculpted songs sung with fervor by Jenny Lewis and Blake Sennet. With simple lyrics that convey raw emotions and talented vocals this cd is perfect for any day or night. Highlights include the tracks "Science vs. Romance" and "Pictures of Success." They mix pop-folk, with indie-pop effortlessly. When Jenny sings "and sometimes planes they smash up in the sky and sometimes lonely hearts they just get lonelier" You believe her and you want to assure her. This is indie music at it's finest.

After randomly hearing one Rilo Kiley song, I decided to buy the CD to check them out. I have to say that this is by far one of the best albums of 2001! Much of the music that is being produced lately all sounds the same, so it is nice to have something fresh. The melodies work well with the twisting lyrics, and Jenny and Blake's voices are so passionate, that you can't help but become wrapped up in it all. I only wish I can catch their live show now.
