Jarvis Cocker - Further ComplicationsHe’s been hailed for his observational wit ever since Pulp’s “Common People,” his caustic view of class slumming, became a Britpop anthem in the ’90s. Jarvis’ second solo album is ripe with droll lyrics. “I met her in the Museum of Paleontology and make no bones about it,” he sings on “Leftovers.” On “I Never Said I Was Deep,” he proclaims “my lack of knowledge is vast, my horizons are narrow.” Sonically, the recently divorced Jarvis summons a heavier rock sound, especially on the tellingly titled “Homewrecker.”
