More Adventurous is the third full-length album released by Los Angeles based band Rilo Kiley. The album, released on August 17, 2004, marks a significant change in the band's sound with the goal of being "more adventurous" than their previous music. The effort paid off by increasing the group's audience and garnering critical praise; noted rock critic Robert Christgau, initially naming the album the fifth best release of 2004, included it in his recap of the greatest albums of the 2000-2009 decade, placing it at the twenty-fourth spot. Christgau also declared "It's a Hit" song of the year for 2004, subsequently declaring it the eighth best song of the decade. The album eventually placed at the fourteenth spot in the Pazz & Jop ballot for 2004.
Two versions of the album were released: the regular store-sold version in a normal jewel case and a limited edition digipak version (1,000 copies) sold at the album's release party and concert.
"More Adventurous" alludes to a line from Frank O'Hara's Meditations in an Emergency. "Each time my heart is broken it makes me feel more adventurous (and how the same names keep recurring on that interminable list!), but one of these days there’ll be nothing left with which to venture forth."
