Fascinating . . . powerful
Elif Shafak, The Spectator
Heavy opens an ornate portal into a murky subculture, illuminating the marginalia as well as the big beasts
Victoria Segal, Sunday Times
A weighty discussion of metal, for both passionate fans and neophytes . . . Yet what elevates Heavy from being a simple love letter to metal is the way in which Franklin situates heaviness within the "iron-rich bloodline running through the bedrock of culture" . . . a book that pulls off the trick of offering something to both passionate fans and neophytes
Keith Kahn-Harris, Guardian
A wildly entertaining journey into the heart of musical darkness
Liam Cagney, Irish Times
