Time Out says
The potential pitfalls in documenting Heavy Load are self-evident – how to celebrate a group who make what could be described as an enthusiastic racket without becoming patronising? Rothwell does a superb job outlining the personalities within the band, and how much they conform, ironically, to well-worn rock-musician clichés, particularly drummer Michael – a one-man emotional rollercoaster with solo-career aspirations. But he shies away from showing us the band in all its atonal glory, preferring brief clips of shows and sessions, urging us not to view Heavy Load as a novelty act but refusing to let us make that decision for ourselves.
