Album Review

Singer/songwriter and cracking guitarist Chuck Prophet breaks the Americana mold on his fifth solo recording, and pops turntablism and noisy Tom Waits-style clanks into his formal songs as an experiment. It works: there's the bouncy Farfisa-toned title song, and "Lucky" is an absolute hit single right in the minimalist pocket with its guitar, drums, Hammond organ, and falsetto vocals (all certainly atypical on a Prophet-style production). "God's Arms" has a melodious Eastern hymn spin thanks to swirling Mellotron and mando guitar subbing for sitar. Though Homemade Blood was his high-water mark, new listeners may want to connect with this so-called departure before digging deeper into Prophet's wealthy storehouse of songcraft.

Customer Reviews

Great Album (but minor iTunes missteps)

I'm new to Chuck's catalog and I think I like this period the best, every song so far has a great vibe and overall is a lot of fun. But what's up iTunes? You misspell the title (it's "Business" not "Buisness") and the artwork is all wrong. But that doesn't take away from this great album in the slightest.

Listen to this album and you will Prophet.

Excellent artist who has consistently put out good albums. It Won't Be Long and Dyin' All Young are two slower tempo songs with Dyin' All Young being an outstanding track. Skatehouse (Burning In The Rain) great song with a very catchy repeating keyboard riff. The Hurting Business has a Fortune Of Wayne pop song feel to it and is fun to listen to. Rise, Apology, It Won't Be Long, Gods Arms, and I Couldn't Be Happier are all strong tracks of various styles. Bottom line is this album is an enjoyable listen and is worth supporting.

Chuck Prophet hit the road straight out of high school in the '80s with the psychedelic roots band Green on Red, and he never looked back. In addition to working as a singer/songwriter, guitarist, bandleader, and collaborator with artists as diverse as Cake, Kim Carnes, Solomon Burke, and Alejandro Escovedo, Prophet's deepening solo catalog of self-produced "sideways" roots rock has steadily become his calling card. Born in the Southern California suburb of Whittier, the San Francisco-based Prophet...
