  1. More Adventurous sometimes gets too precious, but at its best it achieves a kind of cinematic grace.

    A glossy production makes for ear candy, but it's bereft of edge. [Feb 2005, p.102]
  3. A staggeringly uneven salad of powerpop alt-country and even R&B that succeeds as often as it fails.
  4. The rest of More Adventurous is mostly what you would have expected from Rilo Kiley before the album's bracing beginning, only now it carries the stench of promise unfulfilled.
  5. With pluses so few and far between, it’s a struggle to make it through these 11 tracks without feeling nauseous from all the sickly pop filler.

    Jenny lewis can sell every track on this album with her amazing vocals. Some of the songs were even a bit folkish for my taste, but given the Jenny lewis can sell every track on this album with her amazing vocals. Some of the songs were even a bit folkish for my taste, but given the way Jenny and the band present them, I couldn't help but fall in love with the entire thing. Full Review »

    Good but not great. A couple of so-so songs really hurt the total album for me.
