First US vinyl pressing (2014) of this 90s Brit-Pop masterpiece. Rare in the import vinyl version (expect to pay around $70+ for original copies), this is the first time we've been able to offer it. This Plain Recordings pressing features quality 180g vinyl and exact reproduction of the iconic cover. As for the review, we ask Lab-alum and Pulp expert Roctakon for his thoughts:
"I think of the three big Pulp albums as a great 90s trilogy. This middle record is not actually my favorite, but it’s where you should start. It’s the one with the big numbers: the dace hit "Disco 2000" the quippy look back at the dawn of Rave "Sorted for E's & Wizz" and the very best song "Common People" to come out of the Britpop happening. The thing about Pulp is Jarvis is straight and he writes about women and relationships in a profound way that is completely missing—"Jeane" being the rare exception—from The Smiths DNA. Morrissey’s loneliness seems to exist in its very own universe, which is fine, but Jarvis sings about pussy and dildos and a different kind of longing. Besides being a really fucking great band, Pulp does this one thing you can’t get from the Smiths catalog better than anyone. Their 90s Trilogy (His and Hers, Different Class, This Is Hardcore) is a must own."
