  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.
  3. Atop the stinging double-stop guitar licks of the Bottle Rockets’ no-frills latest, optimism and good intentions knock heads with the reality of human imperfection.
  4. Uncut
    Lean Forward occasionally falters toward generic Southern rock, but contains its share of gems. [Nov 2009, p.81]

    Maybe it's fitting that in the same year Wilco found a sense of humor, the glass of chief Bottle Rocket Brian Henneman is finally half-full.
