More Adventurous is the brand-new album from Rilo Kiley. It is simultaneously bold and understated, bombastic and intimate, tragic and triumphant. It's an album full of uplifting songs of heartbreak, traditional pop from the future, country music from the city, and other manners of oxymoronic perfection.

"Are they alternative-country rockers or alternative rock crooners? That was the conundrum following Rilo Kiley's 2002 release, The Execution of Things, and with More Adventurous, the band's first record with major label support, we have our answer. Jolted by the divinely pure vocals of Jenny Lewis and Blake Sennett's howling guitar on prospective indie anthems such as "Portions for Foxes," the Los Angeles foursome has two fists through the earth in their quest to depart the underground. It's obvious from the opening smack-talk sing-a-long "It's a Hit" that Lewis is the centerpiece of this 11-song pop consignment (leaving the capable Sennett to sing only the acoustic low-fi "Ripchord"), and the unabashed charisma that is her trademark infiltrates throughout-from rockers ("Love and War") to ballads ("Absence of God") to pop ("Accidntel Deth") to Dusty Springfield soul ("I Never"). And while the production is polished to radio-friendly, it fails to dull the charming accessibility of a band that wears progression as a badge." Scott Holter, Amazon.com
