"El caso de este cuarteto californiano liderado por la dulce voz de Jenny Lewis guarda bastantes similitudes con la trayectoria de Death Cab For Cutie. Como en el caso de Gibbard y compañía, Barsuk fue la primera compañía en darse cuenta del tremendo potencial de las composiciones de Rilo Kiley. El sello de Seattle se encargó de tutelar la ascendente trayectoria de la banda en sus inicios hasta que los cantos de sirena de una multinacional (Warner para más señas) acabaron seduciendo irremediablemente al grupo, que publicó a través la poderosa corporación su último álbum, More Adventurous, el pasado año.

Rilo Kiley is on of the recent big things to hit the indie scene, but this was from their early days, this particular CD being released on Rilo Records originally (They only ever released one other thing on this label-- their EP which underwent several changes in title and was released three times, all with slight variances). Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie, The Postal Service, All-Time Quarterback) somehow managed to get a hold of this and, impressed, somehow got Rilo Kiley signed to Barsuk (The label to which Death Cab for Cutie is signed to), which brings us up to this record, featuring Rilo as the four-piece outfit of Jenny Lewis (Keyboardist, Guitarist, and Vocalist), Blake Sennet (Guitarist and Vocalist), Dave Rock (Drummer, later replaced by Jason Boesel after an apparent falling-out with the other members) and Pierre de Reeder (Bassist).
This album is a romp through a variety of musical genres, ranging from slow ballad-ish songs such as Small Figures in a Vast Expanse, a song about changing and often failing at it, to almost upbeat songs such as the carry-over song (it's a very modified version of an EP song) Always, a song about nogoodnic boys who always lie. Between the two there is a sprawling land of stylistic variance, with one underlying concept genre. Some of the standout songs on this particular album are Plane Crash in C, Science Vs. Romance, and Pictures of Success, though I couldn't say I didn't enjoy every song for some reason. Below is just a bit of information on the songs I mentioned above.
Plane Crash in C: A song that's actually rather catchy and lovely despite it's sort of slow-pace. A rather interesting trumpet line, too.
Science Vs. Romance: This is, without a doubt, some of the finest work Rilo Kiley has ever done. Though not ridiculous in it's pacing, this offering has a very popish feel to it, with Jenny singing on giving up beliefs in some of her finest pre-The Execution of All Things work.
Pictures of Success: The song that many, including this author, consider to be the crowning achievement on Take Off's and Landings. It's fairly slow for a tiny bit, but then picking up the pace, which only digresses back down to the pace it began at. One of the loveliest songs on this album, and quite possibly of their career (though their new stuff sounds pleasing as well), it contains geniuses lyrics, quite often leaving the listener lost amongst them.
This said, I feel that you should, however, make your own decision and not just rely on one reviewer in the end.
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.
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!
