For much of the Nineties, Missouri’s Bottle Rockets were the torchbearers for smart Southern-style rock. Here, they continue their recent return to form: Brian Henneman sings tenderly of dead soldiers (“Kid Next Door”) and bad marriages, and “Get On The Bus” is a killer blue-collar defense of the environment. – M.K.
