On the CD, the tracks are incorrectly listed in the same order as on the 12" version, when they are in fact reversed. This has led to the extended eight minute version of Countdown often being mislabelled as the radio edit.


Iestyn George in the NME, 7th September 1991:

Pulp are infinitely superior to the rest of the 'we are weird' clan. For a start they seem genuinely bonkers, particularly singer Jarvis who looks like one of the good Lord's genetic mishaps. The last single 'My Legendary Girlfriend' was a minor classic. 'Countdown' however, can be described as nothing other than a disco record skating the thin ice between pop irony and aural torture. I like it, but then I'm a sick man.
