CRITIC REVIEWS

90
AllMusic

We Love Life is warm and embracing, even when it delves into darkness, never nearly as despairing as Hardcore, and nearly as affirming as Different Class.

90
Spin

Preposterous and sensational, We Love Life grapples with nothing less then how best to prove you're alive.

82
Pitchfork

On their seventh album, Pulp have pulled off yet another remarkable reinvention of their sound and outlook, while simultaneously making their most organic album since their full-length debut, It, was released almost two decades ago.

80
Drowned in Sound

‘We Love Life‘ is, if anything, a continuation of what came before, namely the angry swirl of dark hues that was ‘This Is Hardcore‘.

70
NME

'We Love Life' is a grandiose, symphonic affair buoyed by succinct orchestration and white-light choral interludes. At times, the music really sparkles as it soars above Cocker's bleakly-intoned spoken-word meditations.

60
Rolling Stone

Few songwriters articulate underachievement from the overeducated with Cocker's flair, a quality We Love Life both chronicles and embodies.
