We Love Life is the seventh and final studio album by English rock band Pulp, released on 22 October 2001 by Island Records. It reached number six on the UK Albums Chart, with a total chart stay of only three weeks. It was produced by Scott Walker, whose own album 'Til the Band Comes In is mocked in the lyrics of the song "Bad Cover Version". Cocker claims the lyric was written long before Walker became involved in the album's production.
We Love Life marches in with "Weeds" on top of Nick Banks' militaristic snare drum and unexpected layers of acoustic guitars. For his part, Cocker essentially addresses the double standards that exist in our lives, driving especially hard at the image-conscious upper class who "still come around to visit us when fancy booze and drugs. A brilliant string ostinato anchors the groove of "The Trees," in which Cocker laments a lost love, similarly coming to terms with the fact that trying to get it back just isn't a possibility. Might as well go and tell it to the trees," he sings, and it's at this point that you first realize that he seems to be seeking real emotional commitment far removed from the lascivious sportfucking that his older songs favored.

Pulp’s 2001 swan-song We Love Life drips with the exhaustion of a band that really had to rouse themselves for one more go. Considering how pained This is Hardcore sounded, this makes sense. That album concluded with frontman Jarvis Cocker bidding farewell. Tapers are over/Irony is over/Bye bye/Bye bye, he stated on The Day After the Revolution. It wouldn’t have been surprising if we never heard from Pulp again after that

We Love Life’ has been billed as a renaissance after Pulp. went wildly off the rails on their last album – 1998’s ‘This Is Hardcore’. The problem with that record wasn’t just that it was drab and largely tuneless, but that it was such a wretched cliché. A whole record about how VIP parties really get you down was the last thing anyone wanted to hear.
