So, i bought the songs single and loved the two b-sides that came with the song, finally i bought the album and was blown away. The songs on it are all amazing and i love Jenny Lewis' voice, paints peeling, a better son/daughter, with arms outstreched are all some of my favourites, but every song has it's own place.
The lyrics for each are all incredibly deep and clever, the tunes are equally as amazing.
All in all this album is one of the best in my ever-growing collection, it is VASTLY underrated. Buy it now and open your eyes.
Hail to whatever you found in the sunlight that surrounds you.
On it was "With Arms Outstretched" which hit me as a beautiful song and also "Jenny, You're Barely Alive" which shocked me as a woman like Jenny Lewis has such a beautiful voice but can deliver the most snarling lyrics with complete honesty.
I immediately sought out their albums and was suitably pleased and impressed.
Every song is excellent and Blake and Jenny have a definite knack for writing catchy pop hooks over angular, edgy guitars and melodious keyboards.
The songs that stand out for me are the opening track "The Good That Won't Come Out", "My Slumbering Heart" (with it's chorus to die for) and the album closer "Spectacular Views". These three songs really show the contrast that the album contains.
My only criticism lies with the 'special' track, "That's How I Choose To Remember It", which appears in snippets after various other tracks. Because it is only an excerpt it really cuts the album up and stops the flow of the songs.
Apart from that, this is one album that is never far from my CD player!
The album isn't all perfect moments, of course. When guitarist Blake Sennett takes over vocal duties, the tracks sound like hastily-written filler, and the accusations of overt tweeness levelled at the band occasionally feel justified (see 'Capturing Moods'). But Rilo Kiley are much, much more than friends of Conor Oberst, or just another Saddle Creek band.Read more ›
I first heard and liked "Execution of All Things itself but I now get the most out of "A Better Son/Daughter" and "The Good That Won't Come Out".
Supposed to be indie-and-country or garage/country, but what do I know? This is an excellent band and I urge you to buy the CD and listen again and again.
Jenny's vocals are brilliant throughout and it is most definitley an album that you won't want to end.
Catch 'em live!
Manchesters gig on Thursday 24.6.04 showcased their immense talent. Move over Conor!!!
at first i didtn like it - to be fair i didnt give it much time - i didnt find any catchy hooks or gnarly guitars immediately on the 1st 2 songs and i think it must have been tucked away for some 2 years - then last november i had to do some long trips across the uk for work.
I stuck this on as i thought the journey from birmingham to carlisle on the M6 would be a good chance for me to get to know it a little better - my word i'm so glad i did.
as many a music fan will agree - you have these moments every now and again when a piece of music yanks something inside of you and it just clicks - you can almost always remember where you where when it sunk in to your soul and you knew this was something good - well it happened in the outside lane of the M6 just by wigan.
this album surprised me so much - i thought it was pap - but oh no its turned out be a new favourite.
basically it is indie/alt/rock, guitars, female singers, catchy hooks - usual type of stuff - done with a 90's alternative scene influence. similar bands would be tegan and sara, florence and the machine, sally crewe, magnapop, breeders, belly and i hate to say it but its a bit Placebo-ey too(but better!).
ok - what makes this different to faux goth approach of Placebo, or the angst of Nirvana is that the music is so constantly inventive, unpredicatable and ultimately satisfying! Jenny lewis's voice sways between rock goddess and impish sickly sweet child with grace and panache . she is emotive and powerful and it fits very well to there style.
the songs as mentioned in the other reviews blend quiet bass lines and whispered vocals with sliced riffs and needle sharp hooks.Read more ›

I just can't stop listening to this. I can't imagine there will ever be a week in my life where I don't play it.
By far the best Rilo Kiley album. Read more
if bob dylan played them twice in a month on his theme time radio hour, it must have something going for it.Published on 15 Jun. 2009 by Mr. K. Green
