Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (5/13/99, p.64) - Included in Rolling Stone's "Essential Recordings of the 90's."

Rolling Stone (4/4/96, pp.61-62) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...a brilliant, eccentric, irresistible pop album about fucking and fucking up..."

Spin (9/99, p.140) - Ranked #1 in Spin Magazine's "90 Greatest Albums of the '90s."

Spin (1/97, p.58) - Ranked #3 on Spin's list of the "20 Best Albums Of '96."

Spin (3/96, p.108) - 9 (out of 10) - "...Jarvis Cocker [is] the most observant, quotable British lyricist since Morrissey and Neil Tennant....Pulp elevate themselves to a level...supportive of Cocker's minutely detailed narratives and excessively theatrical delivery. The new-wave arrangements stay focused..."

Q (p.116) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n album that deserved its huge success. It defined the mood of the day."

Q (p.129) - Ranked #4 in Q Magazine's "10 Essential Reissues Of 2006."

Q (10/01, p.67) - Ranked #23 in Q's "Best 50 Albums of Q's Lifetime"

Q (12/99, p.84) - Included in Q Magazine's "90 Best Albums Of The 1990s."

Q (2/96, p.67) - Included in Q's 50 Best Albums of 1995.

Q (6/00, p.70) - Ranked #46 in Q's "100 Greatest British Albums"

Q (12/95, p.142) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...the range of DIFFERENT CLASS is impressive: `Live Bed Show' is the sort of brooding ballad Nick Cave might favour...tracks such as this and `Feelings Called Love,' render more redundant than ever the view of Pulp as kitsch..."

Uncut (p.98) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "Middle-class snobbery, the beauty and banality of rave and the endless cycle of hedonistic desperation are all grist to the tragicomic mill."

Option (1-2/96, p.110) - "...a vivacious extravaganza of mod, melodramatic fun..."

Melody Maker (12/23-30/95, pp.66-67) - Tied for #1 on Melody Maker's list of 1995's `Albums Of The Year.'

Melody Maker (10/28/95, p.37) - Bloody Essential - " once richly evocative of a quintessentially English pop past and yet as irreducible, idiosyncratic and NOW! as...The Smiths in their heyday. Pulp, in fact, are The Smiths if they hadn't been so appallingly disco-phobic..."

Village Voice (2/25/97) - Ranked #10 in the Village Voice's 1996 Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll.

Mojo (Publisher) (p.62) - Ranked #39 in Mojo's "100 Modern Classics" -- "[T]his was a bigger and brighter work, with brilliantly drawn, era-defining vignettes..."

NME (Magazine) (12/23-30/95, pp.22-23) - Ranked #7 in NME's `Top 50 Albums Of The Year' for 1995 - "...A call to arms for the misfits and the misunderstood..."

Pitchfork (Website) - "The genius of "Common People" is the way its fist-punch chorus and frantic surge rouses unity and release even as its socially acerbic lyric speaks of division and tension."
