  1. The ultimate effect is engaging and generally impressive, although you wonder if the Postmarks are targeting the wrong audience. [Oct 2009, p.114]
  2. Memoirs at the End of the World, as ambitious as it seems, never seems to overstate it’s welcome.

    If the next James Bond film needs a soundtrack, those in charge should look to the latest from Florida-based trio The Postmarks. [Fall 2009, p.106]
  4. Yehezkely, with her limited range and slightly detached delivery, effectively bridges that gap between the music's indulgent/escapist tendencies and our desire to connect with it despite that distance.
  5. Even though the album may be enough of a stretch that it could chase away many of the band's fans, if you give it a chance, Memoirs at the End of the World is a completely successful melding of the Postmarks' autumnal sweetness with the elevated drama and epic nature of film scores.
  6. The Postmarks have created epic, cinematic, multi-instrumental pop that meets every lofty ambition of its authors while remaining accessible enough to translate to the masses with its beautiful melodies and alluring soundscapes.
  7. Much of Memoirs seems familiar even on first listen; it’s all been done better before.

    Cinematic music well performed and expertly weaving the vocals using the perfect voice of the lead singer. The only disappointment is that the band seems to have been rather silent lately. Another album at least on a par with this one would be most welcome. Expand
