Best and most interesting band of the britpop era
Jarvis is a good lad
From the best city in the country
Should bump it up from a 4 to a 5 for this really;
Never really got the hype but Disco 2000, the opening 3 tracks on We Love Life and This Is Hardcore (the album) are good.
Not really my thing. Liked a couple of singles but have no inclination to delve into any of their albums.
Think they will score very highly here.
2 (two) out of five (5).
One of the easiest 5s so far. Always better than their Britpop peers, a long run of incredible singles and Different Class is the best album ever made (don’t @ me).
An easy, easy 5. Muting the thread before all the Kerrang! readers pile on, I’m feeling far too sensitive this morning
Mostly left me completely cold, but a couple of decent tracks. 2/5
Actually, this is hardcore is really good isnt it. Upped to 3.
When they were good, they were very very good, but overall it’s a 3.
Thought Jarvis Cocker was a prat in the 90s and still think he’s a prat now.
Kerrang! is so watered down these days that Pulp would probably be in it!
A generous 3. Some decent singles that I wouldn’t turn off if they came on the radio, but I don’t think I’ve ever consciously chosen to listen to a Pulp album .
A far more interesting band than most of the Britpop pap than they were often lumped in with. A great singles band with lots of interesting stuff to be found hidden away on B-Sides and in the corners of their albums. Voted His n Hers as best album (because it is) but We Love Life is a bit of a lost classic in my eyes and overdue a critical reassessment.
A good band slightly short of true greatness. 3.5 for me, but I couldn’t round it up to 4 because that would have meant scoring them higher than Dylan got, which is absurd. 3.
I’m pretty sure you say that almost every time.
I wouldn’t describe Pulp as “watered down”
