4.0 out of 5 stars The Brooklyn Side October 27, 2003
By Train
This lp is what many say is The Bottle Rockets finest disc. It may be, but 24 hrs a day is my personal favorite. If you like that, I think you will like this also. All that aside, this is a great country rock disc. This is the first exposure Ive had to the Bottle Rockets after reading much about them, and they exceded my expectations. They sort of remind me of Neil Young and the Jayhawks combined, but they also have a wicked sense of humor to some of their songs. The song "1000 dollar car", any one who has ever bought a used piece of junk can relate to this hard rockin song. Any fan of alt-country mixed with the best of classic rock will like this album

5.0 out of 5 stars You have to hear it to believe it January 20, 2005
Really, get this. These guys are something special. I bought this album back in ninety-something when they had a few songs on the radio. I liked it enough, but put it away with the rest of my cd's. I pulled this out two years ago and haven't been able to shake it since. There's something witty, sad, decent, and profound about every song on this album. I expanded my BRox collection and got the rest of the albums and I haven't heard a thing that wasn't near perfection.

This album, on Atlantic, was probably their biggest seller, it comes after a collection of songs that Brian did solo on the first bottle rockets album. (five star rating on that album as well.) Brian and the boys got some serious airplay out of Brooklyn and probably made enough to buy a trailer off the royalty checks alone. I don't know what's better, the driving, rockabilly, kick you neighbors cat beat, or the very simple and ultra-insightful lyrics to the songs. I really can't begin to tell you what's good or bad, but the gang (Brian and all that contributed lyric and music) got it right on this one. If you only buy one Brox album, go for this one and then expand if you like, and of course you will. I met the guys in Minneapolis in 2004. It was an unreal show they put on at the Fine Line Music Cafe, so go see them live if you can.

Finally, I'll leave you with this from Gravity Fails. "Maybe it's something in my genes/maybe it's something in my jeans..." Throw down your twelve bucks and don't look back. Tommy Bracket

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best release to Date by a great American Band August 21, 2003
This Hard to find gem is worth every penny. Somewhere between Neil Young and Crazy horse and C.C.R. the Bottle Rockets can Rock out, listen to "1000 dollar car" or put out ballads, ala "Pot of Gold". This is a great witty rock and roll album. Well played and great cutting lyrics. If you have'nt picked this one up yet- you need to before it's not possible anymore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy moly January 14, 2006
This CD was in storage for a while, and just got on the CD again after a decade... it's great! Gravity Fails is one of those mindblowingly good songs that sticks in your head, and keeps you happy all day long. I'm a total sucker for songs like that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Find it November 13, 2004

Go to Insound.com. They have it for under 10 bucks. Not that the album isn't worth three times as much - you just shouldn't have to pay it.
