Worked with legendary producer Chris Thomas, adding keys, programming and arranging over several months in 1997/1998 for the making of Pulp's follow up to Different Class, the much darker This Is Hardcore. The album was included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die and was very well received in the States with the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, all awarding the album three and a half stars out of four. In 2014, US LGBT magazine Metro Weekly placed the album at number 46 in its list of the "50 Best Alternative Albums of the '90s." In 2017, Pitchfork listed the album at number seven in its list "The 50 Best Britpop Albums".
