5.0 out of 5 stars Best album of the Britpop movement, 25 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Different Class (Audio CD)
If you consider how badly dated many of the albums that surfaced around the Britpop era of the '90s were, you'd come to albums like this with an unsettling aura of 'those memories' etc. or just because you want to hear an album by Pulp, for instance. However, this is the album that really encompassed Britpop. Pulp always were considered outsiders, which was probably reflected by their Smiths influences (see Blur and Suede). The essense of Britpop, however, was to encompass the Englishness of that influential band as well as reacting to the American domination of the early 90s (Guns 'N' Roses, Nirvana et al.) The final track is the most endearing track of the whole Britpop era. Witty tales of longing love and a shotgun towards Cocker's repressed lifestyle, it is here that you know that Pulp really made it - with an album of such quality. Everyone's heard 'Common People' and, probably, 'Mis-Shapes' by now so buying this album is a really good option.
