"Freaks stands as Pulp’s second full length, but Jarvis Cocker’s voice sounds as if it’s discovering itself throughout the gothic gloom.

"...Pulp’s sophomore album Freaks was reportedly produced in a week on a budget of £600-800 and Jarvis Cocker told Mojo that “it sounds crap.” On opener “Fairground”, Freaks immediately stands out from the Pulp of any other era.

The claustrophobic paranoia of “Master of the Universe” infers an overwhelming sense of powerlessness, but unfortunately goes a little too far with the post-punk stylings, with Cocker’s voice giving its best Ian Curtis impression. Nevertheless, it’s still a more thrilling Joy Division tribute than what most of the genre’s recent revivalists have offered..." (https://consequenceofsound.net)
