Freaks was Pulp's first full length album released way back in 1987. It is darker and more claustrophobic than their debut EP It and showcases the beginning of Jarvis Cocker's ability to spin a yarn over slowly building glam-pop. Strangely, there are three songs here he doesn't sing on but otherwise you can sort of hear a blueprint of what was to come. This double LP re-issue contains non-album singles and B sides.

You cannot be a big Pulp fan and not have at listened to this record. It's one of their early albums, it's a little raw and it's good fun. It's not as pop as Different class, it's darker, it's not so dance, but if you like Pulp of 90s you'll love this one as well. It's probably hard to get into for the person who is more into the poppier Pulp, but if you see beyond the dancing rhythm, you'll love this album as much as any later one. The best way to listen to this would be home alone with some headphones or a noisy party when people are least expecting it.
Pulp at their best before their commercial success
