Album cover.

Different Class is the fifth studio album of Pulp, published on 1995-10-30, and published by Chris Thomas. The songs are a combination of Britpop, alternative rock, and art rock with themes spanning relationships, sex, breakups, class politics, and poverty. The album ended up selling very well and became the band's most popular album.

Personal

I don't remember where I first heard it, but my first experience with the album was from the song Common People in the mid-2000s. Shortly after that, I heard Disco 2000, and, after discovering they were both on the same album, I started listening to the album as a whole. I began exploring the rest of the band's catalog, but didn't find any other albums as appealing. Of the various covers, the one I think best represents the album is the restaurant scene, but my favorite is the bedroom scene.

Status

I don't own this album.

Media

The album had an interesting gimmick where the cover could be swapped out with one of six double-sided inserts, each with its own artwork, and a sticker invited the owner to choose their favorite album cover, however, the cover chosen by reprints was the wedding photograph. Each of the photos took various scenes with cardboard cutouts of the band members in the background. The original vinyl release, having more room to work with, displayed the logo and album title vertically, while CD releases displayed them horizontally. Later vinyl releases used the CD layout.
