This review is from: Hits (Audio CD)
pulp's greatest hits is really good!" The difficulty Jarvis and co have is the enormity of 'common people' and 'disco 2000' but this album reminds the ears how strong some of their other hits are.
Id liken Jarvis to be the first songwriter to have the wit and tell it as it is of Morrissey and this is proved time and time again through the album; 'sorted for e's and whizz' ("i seemed to have an important part of my brain, somewhere in a field in hampshire, alright!"), 'do you remember the first time'("i know your gonna let him bore your pants off again").
the strongest tracks are definately those lifted from the 'different class' period of their career but its difficult to neglect tracks as good as 'help the aged', 'babies' and 'this is hardcore'.
As far as britpop goes, pulp were a very important band. This hits collection reflects that. Shame 'mis-shapes' is ommitted but there is enough tracks to showcase what Pulp were about.
