Under the Blacklight is the fourth and final studio album by Rilo Kiley. It was released on 2007-08-20 on CD. It is mostly indie pop music, even more pop than their previous albums. The themes heard in the songs on this album include relationships, breakups, and drug use. Fitting to the title of the album, the CD jewel case used a purple UV sensitive plastic which glows under a blacklight. From what I've read, Jenny Lewis and Blake Sennett were fighting quite a bit at this time which prevented them from putting as much time into the songs to polish them properly. Sennett shows up as the writer of only two songs, and sings only one.
With the large gap in time since More Adventurous, I was eager to hear more Rilo Kiley, but this album didn't impress me all that much. Some of the songs are great, but most of them were just adequate, however, I saw the band like twice while they were promoting this album, though I wasn't as impressed. Ultimately, this is my least favorite studio album from the band primarily because the songs feature too much repetition and a generic production sound.
I own this album on CD.
This is the order in which I enjoy the songs from this album, and their individual song ratings.
|2||Under the Blacklight||7|
|3||The Angels Hung Around||7|
|7||Give a Little Love||5|
The album's total score is 366.
