Editors’ Notes

This 10th-anniversary edition of the only Postal Service album includes every note from that serendipitous time. The original 10-song album is remastered for improved fidelity, but the 15 bonus cuts—with b-sides, remixes, and outtakes—make this an essential commemorative edition for the million-plus fans who turned Give Up into the second best-selling album in the Sub Pop Records catalog (just behind Nirvana's debut, Bleach). Not bad for what was a side project for Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard and Figurine's Jimmy Tamborello. The duo added Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis and Tattle Tale's Jen Wood for cameos, and this modest electronic pop album connected with indie music fans who were mostly accustomed to guitars, not synths. Of the bonus material, the covers of Phil Collins' "Against All Odds" and John Lennon's "Grow Old with Me" best illustrate The Postal Service's talents. Gibbard brings all the heart with his melodic and guileless vocals, while Tamborello sketches out sparse, arty arrangements on the keyboards and computer.

Customer Reviews

"Everything looks perfect from far away."

Just look at this record, this is going to be great! I have faith that the unreleased Postal Service material is going to incredible. We're in dire need of non-autotune music, Ben and Jimmy - thanks for coming back. We missed you.

10 years later and better than ever

With two new songs sure to please new and old Postal Service fans, the remastered album is as catchy and relevant as it was ten years ago. The versatile music takes on a deeper tone than the groups original album 'Give Up,' and is better for it.

While, 'A Tattered Line of String,' is a pop melody that closely matches the tracks on the band's first album, 'Turn Around' is clearly an evolution of the band's lyrics. Easily one of the best song's on the album, 'Turn Around,' explores adult material that the bands previous light-pop tracks had yet to delve into. Like many of their fans, in the past ten years, the Postal Service has matured. With their new single they demonstrate a depth previously missed. It will easily leave you wanting more.

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...
