  1. His most winsomely loveless lyrics yet. [Oct 2002, p.92]
  2. 90
    Preposterous and sensational, We Love Life grapples with nothing less than how best to prove you're alive. [Oct 2002, p.116]
  3. An emotional and musical breakthrough.
  4. 80
    Musically, it's the richest record of Pulp's career.... We Love Life isn't perfect, but it is vital. [Nov 2001, p.96]
  5. At its best, 'We Love Life' features some of the finest British rock music of recent years.
  6. We Love Life is an album that trades the group's tongue-in-cheek gimmicks and satirical savvy for a mode of pensive moderation and subtle telling.

    I am so disappointed that this was their last record. Sometimes I wish they had stopped after This Is Hardcore which is truely my favourite. This album just sounds horribly... vague. Expand
