Pulp - the jewel of Britpop,
This review is from: Different Class / Deluxe Edition (Audio CD)
Are there really people who do not know this album? Every track could have been a single. It's brilliant. I had it when it first came out - with 12 different covers. When I first heard "Mis-shapes" I thought, "the revolution has arrived". My Jarvis Cocker impressions were famed at school.
I always thought it a shame that the B-sides were hidden away. There's a certain weirdness in a 14 year old getting excited at "PTA", which is about a teacher wanting an affair with a student.
For me this album defines an era, and I can't put my feelings into words. I think it is fresh-sounding, well-crafted, strong and vibrant, and Pulp's most commercial sounding album.
