Give Up is the only studio album by American indie band The Postal Service, released on February 19, 2003 through Sub Pop Records. The band began as a side project between electronic music artist Jimmy Tamborello and Death Cab for Cutie's vocalist Ben Gibbard. The two had previously worked together for a track on Dntel's album Life Is Full of Possibilities.

Listen free to The Postal Service – Give Up (The District Sleeps Alone Tonight, Such Great Heights and more). Already assured a place on the best of 2003 cd list, The Postal Service’s first album ‘Give Up’, and the group themselves, have experienced a sudden almost startling rising success. They’ve deftly shaken-up America like a gentle, buzzing electrical storm, sending out wonderfully harmonic, wake up world tones from seemingly everyone’s stereos.

Coming off their work on Dntel's beautiful This Is the Dream of Evan and Chan, Jimmy Tamborello and Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard team up again for their full-length debut as Postal Service, Give Up. Instead of covering that EP's territory again, with this album the duo crafts a poppier, new wave-inflected sound that recalls Tamborello's work with Figurine more than Dntel's lovely subtlety.

First, the bad news: Give Up doesn't offer 45 solid minutes of the same wholesale excellence that appeared in condensed form on "(This Is) The Dream of Evan and Chan"; if anything, the album's occasional missteps serve to elucidate what exactly made the first collaboration between Tamborello and Gibbard so effective. Still, the core tension between Tamborello's intricate production and Gibbard's cutting voice makes Give Up a pretty damned strong record, and one with enough transcendent moments to forgive it its few substandard tracks and ungodly lyrical blunders.

It’s the second single from The Postal Service’s only album Give Up, and probably their most popular song. Iron & Wine notably covered the song. com/watch?v tCYWymG9fSs.

As an album, Give Up may not eclipse either of the members' full time projects. However, most of the songs on the record are some of the best ever written by either member. Certainly one of the best releases of 2003, many fans will find the sound of Give Up preferable to Dntel or Death Cab For Cutie, even if the songwriting isn't quite on the same level. Pros Incredible sound, great chemistry between Gibbard and Tamborello Excellent songwriting Beautiful melodies, catchy synths and cool drum loops.
