This Is Hardcore Deluxe Edition (2 CD )
Released: Mar 1998
Label: Island Records
This criminally neglected album contains many of Pulp's best songs. "Dishes" is true kitchen sink drama, while "Help the Aged" uses '70s Glam Rock to illustrate our hopeless obsession with fleeting youth. Best of all is "A Little Soul," a heartfelt narrative from a failed father and husband to a son entering adulthood.
