5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Pulp!, 11 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Hits (Audio CD)
Of all the "british wave" bands out of the 90's, Pulp probably has the best chance of eternal liking. Their songs are essentially British tunes, catching the mood of mid to late 90's superbly and don't rely on coke fuelled whizz guitar riffs or whatever. (Somehow, their songs come back the most in comparison with other bands of thos years). All the main issues of the kis of the day - sex, relationships, E's, booze, dad's, boys in your room, frustration, booring moods, etc are covered.
Of their 3 albums the best songs are captured (all the singles except Mis-shapes) and one great bonus song is added: the "last days of the miner's strike". This is a great anthem about the mood in the early 80's, the defeat of the miners and the resulting mood in a Northern town. Brilliant lyrics by Jarvis Cocker, who as always gives the impression he knows what's it all about.
More so, the songs are nicely grouped together and put in their chronologic order. Thus, it depicts Pulp's development from bright young upstarts to mega-stars and dyed-in-the wool pop stars.
Great buy - especially for those like me are just starting to heed the call by Jarvis & consorts. Album never fails to be entertaining and more - invites to buy more of Pulp.
