The Postal Service

I've heard many good things, but haven't liked anything I've heard by them. Can anyone tell me their thoughts on this band and the CD "Give Up" ??

Thanks!

I'm feeling too sleepy to be articulate (loooooong story), but I have fallen head over heels in love with this album. Great lyrics, super catchy songs, a retro-ish sound.

I The District Sleeps Alone Tonight but I don't know if I'd like a whole record or not. Great lyrics, though.

FANTASTIC album.

Seriously, just get it. It's a modern classic in my book.

The beats, the lyrics, the vocals, the atmosphere........all perfect.

I think it's good stuff--kind of like IDM meets indie rock. a lot of it is sweet and romantic.

The US Postal Service actually sued the band, and in the settlement the band agreed to play at USPS events in exchange for being able to keep their name. hahaha

If you like this band, check out "Neon Golden" by The Notwist.

I adore this album. I bought it last spring and still listen to it regularly--just listened to it several times the other day, as a matter of fact. I'd highly recommend buying Give Up, but be warned. If you buy Give Up, you may end up needing to buy lots of Death Cab for Cutie albums too (the singer's other band). They're fantastic as well.

I love the postal service, can't wait for the new cd in 2005... Ben Gibbard is a genius, and i agree with the above about Death Cab -- they are amazing.

All-Time Quarterback is Ben's solo project, and is good too

and another fun fact: the lady singer in The Postal Service is Jenny Lewis, lead singer of Rilo Kiley (if you haven't heard of them check out the album Execution of All Things)

I was looking for this today at Border's, but I'll just have to buy it from Amazon instead.
