The debut Emma Pollock CD 'Watch The Fireworks' is in and the more I hear of her solo stuff the more I'm charmed by it. It's hard to not think of the The Delgados but she's a great songwriter and that stands out. Quality as you'd normally expect from 4AD.... CD only for some stupid fucking reason.

8/10 Penrith Steve 20th February 2015

It would seem that Emma Pollock had a few good songs gathering here and there toward the end of The Delgados after all. Rather than using them on the last couple of Delgados albums, she kept them for her solo album "Watch The Fireworks". It's mostly upbeat indie-pop which, in places is reminiscent of Juliana Hatfield. "Acid Test" is great with a memorable hook. "Paper and Glue" is the most beautiful sounding song on here and may rival the Delgados brilliant "Pull The Wires From The Wall". "Adrenaline" and "Here Comes The Heartbreak" stand out too, but it's a consistent album.
