Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

After releasing two albums to general indifference, Jarvis Cocker abandoned Sheffield and made for the big smoke, where a place at Saint Martins College awaited him. There he befriended bassist Steve Mackey and the two threw themselves into all the affordable nightlife London had to offer. Separations is the result of that--caught square between the strange Brechtian pop of early Pulp and the ecstasy culture that had gripped the capital. Is it any good though? Well, that depends on who you ask. Embittered by memories of a restrictive record deal, Jarvis eventually disowned Separations; in truth though, it's more than a hint of future glories. Admirers of the more melodramatic extremes of 1995's Different Class will love the sinister synthpop of "Death II" and "Love Is Blind", not to mention genius shag-epic "My Legendary Girlfriend". --Peter Paphides

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 19 Mar 2003
Format:Audio CD
To really see where Pulp's defining 'Different Class' era sound began, Separations is where to go. Death II shines beautifully while My Legendary Girlfriend, Don't You Want Me Anymore, and Countdown showcase themselves wonderfully. Any Pulp fan would be mad to not have this album - as you can fully appreciate Pulp's transition from obscure to popular in listening to them grow on this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Pulp starting to form 30 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Now don't be mislead by the title of this review, I like the old Pulp, a lot, a hell of a lot. And I also like the new Pulp too - it's nice to see a band develop over such a long time. But this album is staggering, there are tracks on it that are simply stunning - Death II and the album version of Countdown (don't be put of by the bouncy Countdown compilation version). This album is great, and it's nearly at His and Hers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a chart album and proud: (Princess LaLa) 7 April 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Filled with dark tales of death, abandonment, regret and distained worth this is by far the best and darkest Pulp album available, and is essential for any fan of the group's darker sides.
The distant wailing of the opening track 'Love Is Blind' leads into one of Jarvis' most expressive vocals; soaring through a huge range of needful sounds describing the mundane spirit of love.
The unmistakable keyboard stamp intro, combined with a fantastic lyric opens the wire doors to 'Don't You Want Me Anymore' the first of a two-part story about the risks of leaving love and home; a simply beautiful track.
The haunting violin intro of 'Separations' with the desperate, godly vocal are utterly capturing. The sound then dramatically changes; bouncing musically into a jiggy, swirling, bumble-bee melody, with a bird's-eye-view narrative; thus creating a fantastic 2nd part to 'Don't You Want Me Anymore.'
There are NO poor tracks on this album!
My only regret is that the inlay sheet contains no lyrics; this is a real sore point for me personally.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to evenings in the Leadmill with Pulp 27 May 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you want to understand where Pulp originally came from and how they sounded when Jarvis Cocker was a pretentious 23 year old nob strutting around Sheffield circa 1987/88 then buy this album. To put it into three words, it is brilliant. Pulp had been around a long time before finding popular success and for me, this album captures them at their very best, how they sounded when I was a 21 yr old nob strutting around Sheffield. Live Pulp were amazing and listening to this record shows you just how good they were. Personally I don't think Pulp have made a bad album but for me this is their best by a long long chalk.
