    They've delivered highly re-playable 13 song study in the G blues chord's progression, spanning '50s hillbilly rock, '60s garage and '70s glam and punk. [Sep/Oct 2007, p.129]

    Overall, Going Way Out is much like Heavy Trash’s self-titled 2005 debut, as the duo continues to find ample inspiration from the past.
  3. The album has a smooth flow, using careful production and consistent guitar tones to blend the different musical influences and varied performances into a piece.
  4. It’s too much, for sure, but sometimes too much is just about right.
  5. At points it gets too much, but Heavy Trash's steel-toed pillaging of the past still makes them a punk-rock Time Team.
  6. Like his fellow goth-punk godfather Nick Cave, Spencer is a master of the offhandedly irreverent blues move, turning riffs like 'Crazy Pritty Baby' into prime perversion.
  7. Spencer and Matt Verta-Ray go even farther into chugging rockabilly riffs and hiccupping Elvis poses they explored on their 2006 debut. [Summer 2007, p.90]
