Well, it’s been nearly two years since Sub Pop released the monumentally successful Postal Service album Give Up which brought together Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello, aka Dntel. The album has scanned over 350,000 copies and is currently enjoying sales that are consistently better than any other period during its release.

I've had the CD version of this album for a long time, and today I bought the vinyl. The one I got wasn't the limited edition red vinyl; it was just a standard black LP. However, my copy was actually very low-noise. For those of you who haven't heard it, this album is simply a supurb electro-indie-pop album, and a very fun listen. There are some outstanding tracks like "Such Great Heights," "We Will Become Silhouettes," and "This Place is a Prison." A few are only pretty good, but the quality never dips below "very enjoyable." This is a must-have for fans of Death Cab for Cutie or Dntel. The bonus disc basically includes the first two EP's, with great covers by The Shins and Iron & Wine, and a cover of The Flaming Lips' "Suddenly Everything Has Changed." I highly recommend this release.

The music contained in these two discs are unlike anything I've heard before. Quite a band! It's unfortunate that this will probably be the first and last album by The Postal Service. I would recommend this to anyone!

As far as the vinyl goes, it's sub-par quality. Yes, it's 180 gram, but there's quite a bit of noise on first play (as compared to the average vinyl first play). Also, the bass is lacking from this version. A direct comparison to cd shows much more bass in the cd version. I'm not sure what happened here, but the cd version wins out in sound quality. Normally, I much prefer vinyl over cd.

At this point, I would have given only 3 stars, but the packaging is excellent. You get 2 clear red vinyls, a large lyric booklet, and a foldout poster (twice the size of the record) with some artwork on it. Plus, you get 6 bonus tracks!

For the price, this is the best deal I've seen for a vinyl. Get it now, but get the CD version too.
