This is the 2016 UK import version of Pulp's Different Class on black vinyl with printed inner sleeve. A firm 90s classic and probably the best Britpop LP from a band other than the big 2 (but quite possibly better than those, too). Lab-alum and Pulp expert Roctakon's review:
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 dance 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 girls, 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.
