This is a review of "This Is An Emergency" recorded by The Pigeon Detectives. The review was written by Shane Spencer in 2008.

Following on from the success of debut album "Wait For Me", The Pigeon Detectives are back with their first single and title track off the tricky second album. "This Is An Emergency" stays faithful to the formula that has made their previous releases so popular; musically they've shown some progression but haven't departed significantly from their trademark sound so as to not alienate fans. It's got a simplistic, catchy chorus that makes the song instantly memorable and whereas it may not win over anyone who dislikes their previous material I'm sure it's bound to be very popular.
