  1. Their music is solid, Southern-style meat-and-potatoes rock at its best; it's a formula they've mastered over the years, and Lean Forward shows it's still delivering soul-satisfying results more than a decade and a half on.
  2. Ultimately, Lean Forward is just another Bottle Rockets bar-rock album—but the bartender slings some stiff drinks and keeps a pretty decent jukebox in the corner.
