Take Offs and Landings
Take Offs and Landings is the first full-length studio album by Rilo Kiley. It was self-produced and self-published on 2001-07-31 on CD, but shortly after its release, it was professionally published by Barsuk Records. The album has an indie pop rock sound and most of the songs deal with depressing topics like breakups and relationship incompatibilities.
I first heard the songs Science Vs. Romance and Waves and Wires from the Rilo Kiley web site, and, after getting and loving, The Execution of All Things, I bought this album. The first time I listened to it, I didn't care much for the opener Go Ahead, but I liked most of the tracks on the album. Go Ahead has since grown on me. This is my second favorite Rilo Kiley album, and one of my favorite albums over all.
I own this album on CD and have it signed by Jenny Lewis, Blake Sennett, Pierre de Reeder, and Jason Boesel.
Tracks 8 and 15 do not exist on the self-published release. All songs are composed by Jenny Lewis and Blake Sennett.
