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.

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.

Rilo Kiley is all about Jenny Lewis, the fashionable, cool chick who frounts this band. Both Lewis and Blake Sennet, Rilo Kiley's guitar player, were former actors. Lewis appeared in movies such as Troop Beverly Hills and Pleasantville. Sennet was on the classic Nickelodean tv show Salute Your Shorts, which is one of my ALL TIME favorites. When they and a few other great musicians came together to form Rilo Kiley in 1999 they became, in my opinion, one of the greatest bands of our times. The Execution Of All things is their first record on Saddle Creek Records in Omaha, home to greats such as Bright Eyes, Cursive and The Faint. This is definatly an Omaha record, as compared to their last album Take Offs and Landings, which I like, but this one is definatly saddle creek material. The first song on the record is one of the best. All The Good That Wont Come out has a really catchy melody. Lewis's voice sounds almost enchanting in it. With Arms Outstretched is also a great one. It's featured on the Saddle Creek 50 compelation album which has songs from all the artist on saddle creek. Towards the end there is a chior of voices that includes Conor Oberst (bright eyes) and then... CLAPING! I love claping in songs. I give the execution of all things five stars because its just a good rock album. And ever since the spice girls went under bands with girl singers have been overlooked. Jenny Lewis is no spice girl (although she does have an air of "girl power"). Shes a rock star. NOt in a sence of Mick Jagger, but an approachable girl with a great sence of fashion and an awesome band. The album is genius.

Take a couple talented songwriters (Jenny Lewis and Blake Sennett), a sweet yet powerful female lead singer (Lewis), throw in a variety of instruments and even a boy choir (with Bright Eyes singer Conner Oberst), and you've got this wonderful album. Rilo Kiley's music can be described as country-inspired garage rock. Their originality makes it difficult to compare their style to more recognizable bands, but if you had to, you could say there are hints of the Breeders, Liz Phair and Bettie Serveert, supplemented with twang. Though that description may sound strange, most of their songs are very catchy. Rilo Kiley is certainly not one of those "grow-on-you" kinds of acts. And at the same time, there are some exceptional things going on in their music. As for the lyrics, they are powerfully written and emotionally charged. There are even some curse words there, but minimally and well placed. Anger is eminently present in these songs, however with anticipated redemption. And Jenny Lewis has one of the best female voices I've heard in any genre. Here's a gem of an album to add to your collection and pass on to your friends.
