Jarvis Cocker - Further Complications

Biography

Jarvis Cocker has been making music for two-thirds of his life. Two dozen of these years (1978 – 2002) were spent in Pulp, a group with whom he enjoyed most of the experiences you can have as the singer in a band. First feted by John Peel and then ignored during the long Dole Years, the group eventually became the slowest overnight sensation during a heady period book-ended by ...

Editorial Reviews

Jarvis Cocker's new album is full of alt-pop ballads that are sure to keep your neck bouncing to it's great guitar riffs and rhythms. The best example of such a mesmerizing ballad is the brilliant single, "Don't Let Him Waste Your Time." But don't let the single's success fool you into thinking this is just another shot from the hip, one hit wonder album. It's loaded with spirited ballads that will truly make you feel your money was well spent. Look for another great single, "Running the World," on the underground hit film The Children of Men's soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jarvis Won't Waste Your Time April 18, 2007
By Charles
Format:Audio CD
I'm probably one of the few people around who thought Pulp's '98 album This Is Hardcore was Jarvis Cocker's crowning achievement. Yes, Different Class is a masterpiece in it's own right, however, the brooding, intense Hardcore had an emotional pull that still haunts me whenever I hear it. I remember buying Hardcore upon its release and being so overwhelmed by the maturity of the material. I honestly thought it would be an even bigger hit than Class. Sadly, this did not happen. It would go down as a critical darling but didn't have the Pop appeal to snag the casual fans who purchased Class in droves (in England and Europe at least). Their subsequent album We Love Life ended up being a bit of a reactionary album to regain momentum they had lost with the public at large. Although a great album it lacked the hunger of Class and the realism of Hardcore. It didn't suprise me one bit that they went on (possibly permanent) haitus after its release. All this is my opinion of course, only the band members themselves know what their motivations were.

Which brings us to Jarvis. Mr. Cocker's first full album of material since the days of Pulp. I wasn't hesitant to buy it as soon as it became available domestically in the States simply because of the amount of time I was sure he had put into it. My only wish was that he would be an artist of 43 and put out an album that reflects his age and songcraft up to this point yet not try to recapture the the mood or tempo of Class in some sad attempt to please a mass market. I wasn't disappointed at all. Quite simply put, this is a disc that any artist could release one day then get hit by a train the next with the knowledge that his or her vision and talents had been fully realized.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is something to live with. April 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD
On first hearing, the album is a downer, but this is something to live with and be sucked in by.

Originally written for Nancy Sinatra, "Don't Let Him Waste Your Time" is terrific, borrowing its tremendous, brassy riff from an obscure Phil Spector production.

There are ageless twangings and dramatic chord changes throughout, which elevate the soul, but with an all-eclipsing undertow of worry about age and death.

The funereal "Disney Time" equates the portrayal of family life in kids' movies with pornography. "I Will Kill Again", with terrifying ambivalence, seems to be written from the point of view of a genuine murderer.
"Fat Children" is un-PC, unreasonable, unfathomable.

Jarvis is not the stuff of pop comebacks. Its maker transparently revels in the idea of standing apart from the times, floating off in a self-created bubble as did Scott Walker at the end of the '60s.

As such, it's something of a dark masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jarvis is back and sharper than ever May 18, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Love it! With maturity and age, so many social critics become more resigned to accepting things as they are, more inclined toward polite disagreement. Not Jarvis Cocker. He's been away for a while watching, sharpening his pen, and perfecting the art of the musical withering sneer. Every song on this release combines an underlying world-weary heartache with intelligent moral outrage and thought-provoking juxtapositions. Who else can get away with referencing Auschwitz and Frigidaires in a pop song to which you can't help singing along? It's unfortunate, though, that the song that most succinctly sums up the state of things ("Running the World")is the hidden bonus track on the US release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving It! August 14, 2009
By Verve
Format:Audio CD
Loving it, in particular, though not only: tracks 6 & 7, the Disney track and the hidden track at the very end (though wish it didn't run on with nothing before getting to that track...). Full of Jarvis humour, and a whole lot of fun. Can't go wrong with this to be honest. Check it out. Then check out this one:

Format:Audio CD
i, like many folks, really, really, REALLY, miss pulp. pulp was style AND substance, pomp and grandeur, literate and accessible, melodic and challenging, and jarvis cocker was its ringleader. after back-to-back-to-back-to-back (his 'n hers, different class, this is hardcore, we love life), pulp just kind of disappeared without any real fanfare and we, the fans, have been clamoring for new pulp stuff ever since (i still hold secret hopes we will one day get a new pulp album).

so, in lieu of a proper pulp album, we are lucky enough to get a jarvis cocker solo album, which, truth be told, isn't that far from a proper pulp album. if i had 'jarvis' without the benefit of knowing it was a solo album, i would've sworn it was a new pulp album. this is both a blessing and a curse. a blessing because it reiterates how blindingly good jarvis cocker is as a songerwriter, performer, and frontman. he's second to no one in lyrical ability. really, dood's tremendous. he touches those subjects no one will walk within a mile of. he's not afraid to skewer anyone and everyone. but he's also not above making himself vulnerable and speak to matters of the heart. it's a curse (though not in the purest sense of the word) too, because as good as 'jarvis' is, i get the feeling jarvis is much better served when he's standing in front the sizable musical talents of candida doyle, mark webber, nick mackey, and nick banks. i get the impression jarvis works best in the band setting--when he has people to lead, to guide, and to provide the backdrop for his scathing, witty, humorous, and aticulate lyrics. the songs are great, but they drama and tension inherent to so many of pulp's best songs. could it be age has mellowed jarvis cocker, even just a bit? maybe. probably. i don't know.
