Album Review

Such Great Heights is a single by Sub Pop electro-poppers Postal Service with a great idea behind it. Listeners get the best song from the full-length record, "Such Great Heights"; a strong non-album track, "There's Never Enough Time"; and two bands playing covers of Postal Service songs. The Shins sparkle on their version of "We Will Become Silhouettes" and Iron and Wine plays a positively stunning rendition of "Such Great Heights." Both bands strip away Postal Service's new wave electronics and play the songs straight, the Shins with their typical ramshackle verve and Iron and Wine with Sam Beam's haunting vocals and British folk-style guitars. A worthy purchase for fans of the three bands and for all indie kids.

Customer Reviews

The Perfect EP

This is an absolutely perfect EP. The two Postal Service songs are excellent. Iron and Wine contributes with a mellow cover of "Such Great Heights" *(as heard on the M and Ms commercial) that is pretty much perfection. The Shins round it out with an upbeat, acoustic-guitar driven cover of "We Will Become Silhouettes". At only $3.96, really, how can you not buy this?

These Two Songs Will Take You To Such Great Heights...

This is a wonderful record. The lyrics and Ben Gibbard's voice make the song a great hit. I am not usually a fan of the electronic sound, but for this I can make and exception. However, I was not impressed with " There's Never Enough Time". Way too electronic. Sam Beam's rendition of Such Great Heights is SPECTACULAR with his acoustic guitar. The lyrics for this song are on the romantic side, and he tackles that perfectly. He has that smooth voice that just makes the song a must-have. I am usually a great fan of The Shins, but I was not that impressed with this song. Overall, stick with the purpose of this album-Such Great Heights

Sam Beam's Amazing Voice

Sub Pop records has consistently been at the forefront of what is new and amazing in the music industry for at least the last 15 years. This album is no exception, and it includes amazing singles from The Postal Service, Iron & Wine, and The Shins. Sam Beam's voice is as delicate as moonlight on still water in the exceptional "Such Great Heights". This is the song from the M&M's commercial for which I searched far and wide. Discovering the other great artists on this EP was totally the icing on the cake!

Years Active: '00s

Named for the courier service that allowed them to trade song ideas while living in different locales, the Postal Service were a short-lived supergroup featuring Jimmy Tamborello (leader of the electronica bands Dntel and Figurine) and Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard. Adding to the project's star status were Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis and former Tattle Tale member Jen Wood, both of whom contributed backing vocals to the band's mix of bubbling electronica and indie pop. Tamborello and Gibbard first...
