"This is Hardcore" is much darker than anything before it and I love it, especially the opening track, "The Fear". If memory holds, Jarvis Cocker wrote it after he went a bit nuts after the success of "A Different Class." I'm kinda meh on "We Love Life" aside from "Bad Cover Version"--one of my absolute favorite Pulp songs and ranks up there with Jarvis' duet with Miki Berenyi of Lush on Lush's "Lovelife" album. That song is called "Ciao" and is one great kiss-off song.Originally Posted by Mantenna;3040540;
One word on buying "Hardcore"--it's worth it to shell out the bucks for the double CD "deluxe" version.
