Gangly proto-Brit-poppers Pulp had been lurching around the scene for quite some time when they released 'His 'n' Hers'. Thankfully the album finally rid them of the tag of 'nearly people' that had been following them around and they finally found some crossover success. Tracks like 'Do You Remember the First Time?' and 'Lipgloss' set the scene for what would come next... the number one smash 'Different Class'.

You can categorise Pulp's albums by theme. Different Class is the party album, full of sex, drugs, and the underdogs prevailing in life. This is Hardcore is their seedy, comedown-from-fame album. His & Hers is their most sexually charged record, with young people experimenting in sex being a prevailing theme throughout the 12 album tracks. Songs like "Acrylic Afternoons," the standout track "Do You Remember the First Time?" and "Pink Glove" all delve into this, while more mature songs like "Babies" and "Happy Endings" explore relationships and longing for something more than a "quick shag"

Pulp's His & Hers is the first 'classic era' Pulp album and definitely one of their best. Jarvis Cocker is firing on all cylinders here with his trademark lyrical wit and backed by some of Pulp's catchiest tunes.
Joyriders, Lipgloss, Babies and Do You Remember the First Time all on one album, that's incredible. Makes Oasis look like a bunch of wankers.
