AllMusic Review by

Iron Butterfly's 1968 debut album, Heavy, established the band's trademark sound, relying on plodding, heavy guitar riffs and thundering drums. Most of the album was not particularly well written -- the riffs were the songs, not their foundation -- but the band's overwhelmingly loud sonic attack occasionally made up for the weakness in the material.
