Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Call it the great transitional album, spanning the gap between Pulp's self-consciously arty past and the commercial acceptance of 'Different Class.' 'His 'N' Hers' wasn't quite sure what it wanted to be, but spawned some good songs, most notably "Do You Remember the First Time?" Finally, it seemed, the band was coming into its own, even if the 'own' on this record did appear to be appropriated from '80s Brit band Furniture. Still, there was already no doubt that Jarvis was a star, with his unique style, and that bigger things were on the horizon. A Polaroid of a band on the road to success. Chris Nickson

5.0 out of 5 stars Pulp's real debut. July 19, 1999
Format:Audio CD
While the older Pulp albums are okay in their own little way, "His 'n' Hers" is where Pulp's music really solidified. While the earlier albums are dark and grey (indicative of the "Dark Period" the band was going through), this one is much more solid and upbeat. Jarvis Cocker's vocals on "Acrylic Afternoons" and "Happy Endings" have a way of getting under your skin, good stories coming from a good storyteller. The best moments on the album come curtosey of "Babies", "Do You Remember The First Time?" and "She's A Lady", which are both energetic and inspiring.
All the Pulp albums come with the liner note "NB. Please do not read the lyrics whilst listening to the recording", a plea you'll inevitably break when you go rushing for the lyric book half way through the first song. Fans who were exposed to Pulp through "Different Class" might need a little time to let this album fully sink in (it takes about 4 or 5 listenings). But there is no excuse for owning "Different Class" and not this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stellar re-issue of Pulp's first step into the limelight September 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD
After 10 years of living on the fringe of the Sheffield music scene, "His `n' Hers" is the first album that put Pulp on the radar. While their earlier releases were patchy as best, "His `n' Hers" was a leap forward in terms of songwriting and solidifying their sound. The new "deluxe" edition pulls together the original album, plus an extra disc of goodies that make this the definitive version of this excellent, but largely forgotten album.

You can easily categorize 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 `n' 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" (as the band would have put it.) Lyrically, "His `n' Hers" is not as full of dry wit and cynicism as the albums that came afterward, rather it is more of a storytelling album. While it is an excellent album, there are a few tracks that are forgettable and I often skip over them. "David's Last Summer", "Someone like the Moon," and "Have You Seen Here Lately?" are the weak links on the album, but having said that, they are hardly bad songs.

The new 2 CD re-issue is full of quality extras, which should please the die-hard fans as well as people buying the album for the first time. Many of the b-sides here have been previously released on various imports, but they are all here.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best from Pulp... December 24, 2001
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion this album was released during Pulp's most creative period. There is a really nice 'lo-fi' feel to it that seems to have dissapeared since the release of Common People.
I first came across Pulp after seeing them perform live on a UK late night music show in the very early 90's and they were performing tracks from this album as well as some of the 'b-sides' of Babies & Do you remember the first time singles. I was captivated straight away by Jarvis's performance and by fact that of the honesty of the lyrics and gimmicky electronica content.
I bought His n Hers the very next day and it remains one of my favourite ablums to this day. It has managed to stay fresh and somehow seems to throw up new emotions each time I listen to it.
Joyriders (the opening track) was never a favourite on the album, I have always thought it seemed out of place on the record. It seems like it belongs on an album that has never been released... Strange really!
Every track after Joyriders is superb, the obvious highlights are Babies and Do you remember the first time for first timers, but I bet, like me, they won't be your favourite tracks after a few listens... The way David's last summer builds and builds like an autumn storm until it reaches it's climax still sends little shivers down my spine to this day! For me, Acrylic Afternoons is another superb track that just seems to take your imagination for a ride each time you hear it, it's difficult to put into words,but I know that some people out there will know exactly what I mean.
The best advice I can give you would be to go out and buy this album, it is an absolute classic and along with the 'Pulp - Intro' album it will become intwined into your life.
I just wish Pulp could re-discover that element that made them so great at the time of the release of His n Hers. They are still a great band, but they used to be fantastic.
BUY IT... But don't read the lyrics whilst listening to the music!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pulp's compelling tragedy February 5, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Though Different Class, with its instant pop singles is perhaps more immediate, fans of Pulp will find the appeal of His 'n' Hers will be deeper and more emotionally reaching.
For this is classic Pulp. Sad, tragic and often seedy stories of shallow relationships, dependence on others and wasted lives - of poverty stricken slums where people have nothing to live for except sex.
Forget the cheap thrills of titles such as "Do you remember the first time" or "Joyriders". The stories contained within the album as a whole will move you, as they did me, almost to tears.
The songs speak for themselves:
"And now you feel such a fool for laughing at bad jokes and putting up with all of his friends, and kissing in public. What are they gonna say, when they run into you again?" - Lipgloss.
"No don't go round and see him tonight. He's already made such a mess of your life." - Have you seen her lately.
"I know you won't believe it's true, I only went with her 'cause she looks like you."
Quite superb.
