For those of you self-professed long-time Rilo Kiley fans who have panned this release--get over yourselves! This is a solid effort by a solid group. It may not be as "indie" as More Adventurous or Execution, but then again, it just might be. At first, Under the Blacklight sounds very polished, with a couple seemingly radio-ready singles, such as "The Moneymaker" or "Silver Lining" ("Dreamworld," even) and maybe that is the Warner Bros. major-label debut influence. (It would do radio well to put RK into regular rotation.) But listen a few more times and you will begin to hear what you always loved about this band: the cagey, risque, tounge-in-check lyrics ("15," "Close Call" or "Smoke Detector"), the always interesting guitar stylings of Blake Sennett, the freshest female vocals (sonically and stylistically) in the business these days, and some driving drum and bass lines keeping it all together. Even more, the band shows its versatility by expertly delivering tunes in a wide range of muscial styles which keeps things interesting. There is something here for all true fans of Rilo Kiley. Musicians and their music must grow and evolve, and this latest effort shows Rilo Kiley to be doing just that. Better they do that than simply rehashing ground already covered so as to become boring, predictable and irrelevent. Good job Rilo Kiley! Don't be deterred by the naysayers.
