    This stylish set quantum leaps from the title track's ethereal doom disco to the acid-damaged dreampop of Tokyo Wonderland via robo-glam rave-up Party Boy, and deserves to find these most playful of veterans a wider audience. [Aug. 2011, p. 92]

    Because Heavy Rocks can't seem to figure out what it wants to be, it falls short of other Boris albums.

    Heavy Rocks does the things you expect a Boris album to do.

    It's not completely pants, but not great either. [Jul 2011, p.44]
  5. At least in name, Heavy Rocks seems to promise a return to form for Boris. It isn't. It certainly manages a return to sludgy riffed-based heaviness, but the spirit of the record's orange prequel is nowhere to be found.
