GO BUY… “Jarvis” by Jarvis Cocker (CD)

Posted by americandust on January 30, 2007

GO BUY… “Jarvis”, the solo album by former Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker.  In his solo debute, Cocker covers all the bases that Pulp covered and does so in an easy-to-listen-to style.  The oddity and curiousities of Pulp are present, but not overpowering.  Highlights include “Don’t Let Him Waste Your Time” which is a fun, rollicking track.  “Black Magic” builds into a good song despite the obvious nicking of the “Crimson and Clover” riff (although you have to admit that riff makes that old unbearable song worth listening too).  The secret track “C*nts are still running the world” is fun too (any song that oppens with a line like that one does is worth putting on your IPod). 

I’ll give it a 10/10 and make it my favorite album released last year (in the UK only, the US release is forthcomming).

 So…

GO BUY IT!
