An album for all occasions, 21 May 2006
When I thought of the postal service I believed they were some scr/emo band that everybody just loved for some reason. However I wanted to see what the fuss was about so I listened to them, being pleasently suprised. This band is phemonmenal; and clearly that sort of statement is not to be taken lightly. You can't lose really.. you can chill and unwind with them or you can get ready to boogie it up with them.
Their casual electronic sound is not one to be ignored. This wouldn't normally be the sort of music I would listen to, but loving anything like The Shins or Modest Mouse you won't go wrong giving these a chance.
This album is the first of their recordings I've listened to and its left me hungary for more. It's got a wide range of music for moods which really can't be desribed in a review as its more of an emotionally connection to the music- How it makes YOU feel inside.
Tracks from this album such as "Such Great Heights," "Natural Anthem" and "Nothing Better" are feel good rhymic tunes which if your in a bad mood can't fail to get rid of that black cloud. Whereas "Recycled Air" and "Sleeping In" are more sensual, relaxing tracks. Although saying that they can all be taken either way, depending on the volume you play them at!
All in all this is music that can't be missed, any doubts should be overcome and you will be justified when you have purchased it.
