Reviews coming from critics-
The Onion (A.V. Club): "The L.A. quartet has returned with an album that's teeming with creatively executed ideas, to the point where it almost feels like the band was just using its first three albums to warm up."
Billboard:"Ultimately, the change in direction will likely raise a few eyebrows among some diehard fans, which isn't to say the songs here aren't noteworthy in their own right."
Slant Magazine:"Some of these genre shifts work better than others, of course, but the record is so tightly constructed that nothing ever crashes and burns."
Rolling Stone:"It's yet more adventurous, a prosperous band's challenge to its comfortable cult."
Stylus Magazine:"The one thing you can't accuse Under the Blacklight of is being boring, but it abides by an either/or sort of mentality that presumes that a complete lack of substance is the only alternative to the kind of music Rilo Kiley and their pals made in 2002."
