    Jarvis manages to cover the entire spectrum of human emotion in 13 tracks of pure genius. The brilliance of his lyrical wizardry knows no bounds whatsoever. Beautiful, a modern masterpiece.

    A strong solo effort from the Pulp frontman. More than half of it is top quality. The lyrical cleverness Jarvis is loved for is present throughout and it's full of melody. There are a couple of tracks that we could have done without that seem to miss the touch of other band members, but these are rare enough. Don't let him waste your time,Heavy Weather,Tonight, Black Magic all rank up with Pulps better moments, The most annoying thing is the the 25 minute gap to get to the hidden track, the brilliant Running the World.

  1. The lyrics are often sublime, of course, but there are big, stupid choruses too.
  2. This is the record Pulp could/should have made as a sequel to the seminal Different Class.
  3. Beautifully sequenced, Jarvis makes the case for albums as opposed to downloads.
