Can't remember if I have Bottle Rocket, but I am pretty sure that you won't be able to accuse Almost Home of "delving deep[er] into the alternative and grunge genre..." (Wiki quote). I don't necessarily mind music that does such a thing, and sometimes don't notice it when it does, but Almost Home sounds pretty melodic and metallic rather than alternative and grungy to me.

In fact there are probably more slower songs on this new one than many fans would like to hear? Some really beautiful moments.

I would give it a solid 4/5 or 79% based on the two listens I have had so far. I think that will increase rather than decrease as well. It's not (I don't think) going to set the world (or any subset thereof) on fire, but it could certainly gain the band a respectable contemporary following. I hope it does well enough for them to record more in the not tooooooo distant future.
