I like early Pulp a lot (love Freaks), but prime Pulp for me starts with the Gift singles. 1992-1994 Pulp rivals 1980-83 New Order for me as best era of a band I love - so many great a-sides and fantastic b-sides, and HNH is such a fab album.

Yeah, the Gift singles is when things really get good. Intro actually makes a really solid album with some of their most underrated songs (O.U, Stacks, Inside Susan). If I'm going to listen to Pulp these days, it's either that or the second disc of the His 'n' Hers reissue. The B-sides on there are almost Suede level of brilliant. The Sisters EP alone is one of the highlights of their career. Seconds is my favourite Pulp song.

Pink Glove really stood out for me on this album

Love Separations, warts and all. Why Fire Records sat on it for so long while they finally began to 'make waves' is baffling

Pink Glove was the first Pulp song I fell in love with, so gotta go with that.

finally listening to it again, and still leaning towards babies, though it doesn't have the sonic heft of 'first time' or 'pink glove,' it's probably the prettiest pulp song, which counts for something.

I ended up going for 'Acrylic Afternoons' in the end.

I can understand how those particular tracks with zero votes ended up in that position, but the album is remarkably light on filler really. I think I voted for "David's Last Summer", somewhat arbitrarily.

i think she's a lady is a bit underrated, great full bass sound. a dry run for i spy
