when i first listened to this album i didn't think much too it back in the 90s. But when i pulled it out of my draw and listened to it i was amazed. simply because it is brillient. this album is britpop at it's best!!!!! people say oasis and blur were the best britpop bands of all time. i say bull.this album reached number 1 in the charts and was there for about a month above oasis aand blur at the time. this album proves that you should never count out the underdog. on this album jarvis cocker (genius) put across to the fans of pulp his two obsession. class and sex and he and pulp did this to perfection. you will only understand when you listen to it. so buy it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it is one of the best albums of all time, album of the year 1996. this album takes you back to the glorydays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pulp's 5th studio album is nothing short of a masterpiece of performance pop. It rrepresents in my opinion the culmination of over 10yrs of honing their sound to create something that is all at once innovative, original and unmistakebly northern. The breathy delivery of I Spy, the atmospheric build up of FEELING CALLED LOVE and the pure, honest pop of Something Changed lend it an air of peaceful unease and contrasting optimism. As ever Jarvis is lyrically sharp and the band provide an epic backdrop for his wry tales and dark confessions. There isn't a weak track on this record and it has more than stood the test of time since it's release now 12 years ago (seriously?). It is titled correctly.
I've loved this album since 1995, it has the songs people are going to be familiar with such as Common People and Disco 2000. You can't go wrong with it, its a great album, I love Jarvis' voice and style such as using emphasis where it isn't needed and his story telling is just fantastic.
