  1. Now Pollock has rediscovered her former band’s grandiose esoterica and stark, scratchy danger.
  2. Whereas Pollock’s 4AD debut was fairly charming and instant but a little slight, The Law of Large Numbers is the total opposite; a wonderfully simple, clever and loveable record initially masquerading as a complex and awkward one.
  3. The numerous instruments, varied influences and genre-hopping arrangements on The Law Of Large Numbers, along with Pollock’s own musical talents, results in some emotive indie-rock whose repeated plays will be justified and rewarded.
  4. Pollack's released her second solo album, The Law Of Large Numbers, which is dramatically removed stylistically from Fireworks, yet outstrips it in pure songwriting acumen. [Spring 2010, p.70]
  5. Although a little inconsistent in its layout, The Law of Large Numbers packs that same precise bite that brought the Delgados to public knowledge, scaled down/expanded to suit its creator, who before writing songs was a physicist.
  6. The Law of Large Numbers is a smartly sequenced record.
  7. Few tracks are any way immediate. [Apr 2010, p.116]
