As "Razzamatazz" proves, "Babies" was the beginning of Pulp's streak of genuinely terrific singles. A darker song than "Babies," "Razzamatazz" is slowly simmering song with a steadily pulsating beat and a great, left-field hook. The B-side, while not as immediately memorable, was nearly as good. "Inside Susan," a three-song cycle about a girl and her relationships, was ambitious but level-headed, buoyed by some cutting lyrics, as well as a few killer hooks. All of the songs were collected on PulpIntro and "Razzamatazz" was included as a bonus track on the US edition of His N Hers.
