Chuck Prophet… never heard of the guy before but with a name like that you’ve got my interest. It’s like a mix of Chuck Norris and Jesus rolled into one. Big names to throw around, right? Absolutely, except that they have nothing to do with the music which makes them absolutely pointless in this review. Which is something that can probably be said about the rest of my reviews as well. But here goes…

“Soap And Water” is Chuck Prophet’s eight solo-album and before that he already had a career with Green On Red. Quite the discography if all put together yet somehow I have missed out on all of those releases. Listening to “Soap And Water”, I think I can live with it though because while Prophet knows how to write some pretty good songs, it’s not very memorable. This mix of singer-songwriter, country, rock and a little bit of electronica is actually something I’ve heard being done before by The Ike Reilly Assassination and honestly, I liked it better then because Reilly had witty lyrics along with everything else.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
