Give Up...your money and buy it.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Give Up (Audio CD)
When a friend first told me about this I was so curious I just had to hear it, and it doesnt disappoint. Give Up is what happens when you mix beautiful electronica, lo-fi atmospherics and emo tendencies. As soon as the backing vocals come in on 'The District Sleeps Alone Tonight'(at about 10 seconds) you know your listening to a great record.It is very hard to find fault here, even 'Nothing Better' which at times sounds like Human League playing GameBoys is wonderfully tender and sweet - like Yoshimi-era Flaming Lips at their poppiest. Don't be surprised if the Flips' sound isnt a million miles away from this on their next album. Put simply - the Postal Service certainly delivers.
