    The second half of the record (this is Garwood’s fifth solo album) sees him abandon the more accessible melodies for a sprawling, stripped-back sound that can be just as foreboding as track titles such as Hawaiian Death Song suggest.

    There is a new and penetrating heat haze to these reverberating songs.

    Garwood sounds like he's found whatever he's been blindly searching for. [Apr 2015, p.99]

    Heavy Love is a supremely self-confident record. [Mar 2015, p.85]

    It's a journey worth taking with him. [Mar 2014, p.95]

    This music has an antique heart and, instead of having lots of modern crap plastered on top of it, it has been lovingly restored.

    Garwood's gruff whisper can't touch Lanegan's death rattle, but it lets him slip in the odd love song without sounding like he's sketching a suicide pact. [Mar 2015, p.106]
