Here's my original review of the album. My 2015 opinion varies little other than to say 'Such Great Heights' is a fabulous song, the others less so. However this was a zeitgeisty album that hit a certain breed of folks at just the right time.

Here's my original review of the album. My 2015 opinion varies little other than to say 'Such Great Heights' is a fabulous song, the others less so. However this was a zeitgeisty album that hit a certain breed of folks at just the right time. Ben Gibbard's heartfelt vocals over Jimmy Tamborello's electronics hit the mark for an awful lot of people.  

Sometimes we're at the mercy of our distributors. I was convinced The Postal Service recent album was already out but Pip kept saying "No, no no our distributor would surely tell us if it was out - don't worry your pretty little head about things like that". Anyway its been out for two months and today we recieve our copies. So, as you'll know by now its a collaboration between the Dntel fella and the singer from the marvellous Death Cab For Cutie. Although I'm a fan of both bands I'm finding this difficult to judge on first listen. It is a bit like a cheesy electro-pop version of Death Cab For Cutie - plenty tuneful but maybe lacks depth and emotion. Maybe would appeal more to fans of Figurine. Hmmm... I dunno give me a couple of months before I Give Up on it.... gerrit?
