24 Hours a Day

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Bottle Rockets' first two albums were two of the most influential and popular records of the alternative country movement, setting the stage for their third album, 24 Hours a Day, to be a popular breakthrough upon its 1997 release.
