I don't often write these online reviews for my purchases, but when I saw that pulps latest offering only has an average of 4.5 stars, I couldn't sit back and do nothing. After being a little apprehensive about getting this, as I thought pulp had gone all optimism crazed after the back-lash they recieved from 'this is hardcore', but I was most pleasantly surprised. This is an incredible, moving and heartfelt album. You can tell the band have really found their place and arecontent with life, and the experience is enriched because of this. Stand out tracks for me are 'the wickerman', an epic song of life contained within the boundaries of city life, and the beautiful 'roadkill'. Jarvis' lyrics are as witty as ever, and the tunes are equally good. Just as good as all previous efforts, you'll love life with 'we love life'.

After their last album, "This Is Hardcore", an often uncomfortable soundtrack to inner crisis and celebrity meltdown, many had written Pulp off and wondered if Jarvis had just lost the ability to write good pop songs.
"We Love Life" deserves to re-establish Pulp as one of the best bands produced in the UK within the last few years. Lyrically, there's the trademark Cocker humour ("The Night That Minnie Timperley Died") and references to places in Sheffield (the epic "Wickerman"), but there's also topical references (asylum seekers in "Weeds") and some gentle romantic sentiments too (especially the gorgeous 60s-style "The Birds In Your Garden" is a more than worthy successor to "Something Changed" on 1995's "Different Class" album).
One thing that really strikes you about this album is just how much the band have developed as musicians, I never realised before what a good guitarist Jarvis is. The production values of 60s icon Scott Walker have obviously encouraged the band to expand their range.
It's a different Pulp, but an improved one. More reflective, more mature and will certainly confound many people's expectations.
It's gorgeous.

While it doesn't compare to their last two albums (but then again, what does?!), We Love Life does present Pulp's more earnest and cerebral side. Songs such as "Trees", the vocally layered chorus-friendly single, and the upbeat "Weeds" take the prog rockers out to nature with splendid results. At its best, songs like "Bad Cover Version" (in my opinion, the album's prime cut) and the lovely grandness of "Birds In Your Garden" encapture the towering melodies prevalent in past songs such as "Sylvia" and "Fear." They also offer their songs of Pulpy prose (a la "I Spy"), in half spoken/half sung manners. The ambience of "The Weeds II" is slick and trippy while "Wickerman" moves along in its journey-like storytelling aura. I prefer the former type of Pulp songs, ones with soaring melodies and knock-out choruses, but at the end of the day there is something for every Pulp fan in We Love Life.

"I'm gonna fight to the death 'til they give me back my life" Jarvis Cocker screams for 'I Love Life' on Pulp's 9th long-player "We Love Life" produced by music legend Scott Walker. In "We Love Life" i have to admitted that the musicians and producers did a better job than the singer Jarvis Cocker. This is a album full of strings, orchestra, heavy drums, heavy bass, choir, thunder and the sound of nature.

When i first put it into my cheap mini hi-fi, the sounds are breaking like hell till i put my headphone on, here's the best piece of music i've heard this year. The opening track "Weeds" (The Velvet Underground style) and continuous "Weeds II (the origin of the species)" thought you about the good and bad of weeds. "someone gonna make a fortune one day, if only they can market this stuff right". The current single "The Trees" are about a lost love among the trees are full of orchestration and strings. "I Love Life" thought you to appreciate your own life and "The Birds In Your Garden" are to appreciate the person that you love. "if you wait till tomorrow, she'll no longer be there.../you know is now or never".

The most beautiful song of the album "Bad Cover Version" covered with Christmas Bell, orchestra, strings and beautiful choir sang about a bad cover version of love that'll never works. "It's like a later "Tom & Jerry" when the two of them could talk", he sang. There are a sad and melancholy in "Roadkill" with guitars plucking and electric cello delivered. The best track of the album, i would like to say is "Wickerman". An 8 minutes journey to a dark and polluted world. Also covered by lightning and thunder and strings.

Different Class was allegedly Pulp at their finest and most commercial, a very clever piece of work. This Is Hardcore was menacing and complex but a fete of genius in hard times. I have a strong suspicion that We Love Life surpasses them both. Musically they have grown up and I would defy anyone vaguely interested in Pulp not to find it the most simplistic and easy to listen to of all the albums to date. The 'nature' theme is an inspiration and certainly an alternative way of saying something.
Sit in a darkened room, close your eyes and get carried away firstly with the resounding intro of 'Weeds', a driving, pounding melody with references to outcasts, freaks and refugees, one of the standout tracks. The conclusion of the song hauntingly and electronically slides into 'Weeds II' (The Origin Of The Species)...shades of Seductive Barry without the melancholy of This Is Hardcore surrounding it and minus the emphasis on sex but just as sensual with its pace, a truly hypnotic song. 'The Night Minnie Timperley Died' is another gem - surely single status? Again a resonating and powerful rythym, possibly one of the most energetic - totally wonderful! Maybe this evolved from a news story somewhere but stories are good to listen to and of course it can make a difference who is narrating them. 'The Trees'...this one is one of those lush delights improved upon by the presence of the harmonious Swingle Singers and they have done true justice to other songs on the album too. I love the song, once I'd managed to convince myself that it did not sound like a Eurovision entry. Prepare to be transported with 'Wickerman'. It is the 'Deep Fried In Kelvin' that we never thought we'd hear again as Jarvis shifts the mood back to Sheffield.
