The Execution of All Things

pxdenevan

Thank You TOMIJE for a small bit of perspective. Anyone ever see the video where the escalator stops and people stand/sit for over an hour waiting for a repairman? As for the album, it's representative of RK for certain with all the same reasons to get or not get it. I got it, with 11 clicks.

Great

Ever since I listened to bright eyes 2002 album, lifted or..., i've been wondering who this lady hes obsessed with was and i'm pretty convinced its jenny here. Its pretty odd that for both of them, 2002, was their breakout cds, its like they were both eachothers first love. Either way this cds great

One credit for 4 secs is a jerkoff

madformusic

I like the album but charging people for a few seconds of crap is bull. I think Mayer Hawthorne's album had a 20 sec intro I got nailed for too. Bah! I like Rilo Kiley and Jenny Lewis a lot but paying for short burst of nonsense stinks

Stupid Babies Need the Most Attention

It is a well-reviewed album, and for good reason. A lot of EMusic reviewers, all of them brilliant, with well-thought out ideas, have complained that it costs 12 credits, and that the 12th track is essentially 4 seconds of outro. Somehow, they have missed that you can download the first 11 tracks for 11 credits. No harm, no foul. Except that you have to click on your mouse 11 times instead of once. OH, THE HUMANITY!

Rilo Kiley

What a ripoff. 1 credit for 4 seconds of nothing. Should be 11 credits not complete my album for 4 seconds of nothing. Bad job emusic.

Should be 11 credits...

RK's best album

purkolator

Lovely melodies, wry lyrics... great record and well worth the downloads.

Stellar

LOVE IT. "Paint's peeling" has some wise words for that person who is just not treating you like they should! "The good that won't come out" captures for me, the insecurities we all feel from time to time. "Hail to whatever..." is simply beautiful. You just gotta download the whole thing. Rilo Kiley rocks.

I need to

Favorite Album Ever

Caspar2

This is my favorite album and The Good That Won't Come Out is my favorite song. Pretty much every song in here is amazing (though skip downloading the outro... it's just four seconds of silence). I've never ever identified with music this much before, and this album really got me hooked on all things Jenny Lewis. Other than TGTWCO, try My Slumbering Heart and Spectacular Views.

Six Degrees of The Postal Service’s Give Up

By Jon Dolan, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Are they an indie rock band inspired by country, or a country band influenced by indie rock? Whichever the case may be, The Execution of All Things finds Rilo Kiley establishing a wonderful balance of beautiful indie rock and subtle country. Several guests are on such instruments as French horn, cello, flute, and accordion, while there’s also a “boy choir” that includes Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes. It all adds brilliantly to Rilo Kiley’s passionate and powerful songwriting. “With Arms Outstretched” evokes a country feel in its lyrics, yet has all the sensibility of indie pop. “It’s 16 miles to the promised land and I promise you I’m doing the best I can,” Jenny Lewis sings. “I visit these mountains with frequency and I stand here with my arms up.” You may want to watch out for the unexpected, though infrequent, foul language, but otherwise this strong follow-up to Take-Offs & Landings fits right in with the already respected Saddle Creek roster. – Kenyon Hopkin
