Pure is a 1989 studio album by the British band The Primitives, released as the follow-up to their debut, Lovely. The line-up changed slightly over the course of the previous year: Steve Dullaghan was replaced on the bass guitar by Paul Sampson, who also shared the production duties with Wayne Morris.

The first U.S. single from Pure was "Sick of It", which reached #24 in the UK. Pure also features "Way Behind Me", a single which was actually released shortly after the debut album (rising to #36 on the UK charts in 1988) and added to all future editions of Lovely. "Secrets" was also released as a single; however it stalled just inside the Top 50 (#49 UK). "I'll Be Your Mirror" is a cover of a Velvet Underground song from 1967.
