This review is from: Give Up (Audio CD)
A masterpiece. Considered as a coherent work the ambience and depth of meaning are unbeatable – which is strange considering that the genre is very different to what I would normally listen to (yes, it shouldn’t work but it does). Furthermore at least 8 of the songs are excellent in their own right – there’s no mediocrity to be found here. Great either for background listening or for… well, focussed meditation on how amazing it is. Though when I ask my friends what they think of “The Postal Service” they start ranting about how many days it takes for 1st class mail to arrive… why has nobody heard this strange, eerie and wistful phenomenon?
