by The Postal Service
There will be more on this as more time passes, but I have been working through a list of albums I compiled from various end of the decade lists. I intended to just use it as a guide to the last year or so of music that I had missed because I have been focused on school music, but I’ve been surprised by the number of early in the decade albums that I missed or never listened to all the way through.
One of these albums is The Postal Service’s Give Up. It’s amazing to me how ubiquitous their style has become. I can hear not only the freshness of the music, but the different threads that other artists picked up and ran with. No track is particularly “deep,” but each is in its way a masterpiece.
This is nothing new to anyone, but it’s my 2¢.
