Overview

No Other Love

Prophet's follow-up to The Hurting Business finds him in excellent form, still making American roots music but casting his net a little wider to bring in a few more influences. For example, "Elouise" kicks off with a rhythm straight out of the Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil" before evolving into something looser and less threatening, and "Summertime Thing" has the laid-back vibe of the Young Rascals' "Groovin'" welded to some funky wah-wah guitar influenced by the Isley Brothers. With a voice suggesting that he's training to be Tom Waits when he grows older and occasional lyrics (as in "Run Primo Run") inspired by the vintage Dylan songbook (the Farfisa organ that recurs in the album only furthers the connection), there's a strong romantic streak running through his work, most evident in "No Other Love" and even the growing-older wisdom of "Old Friends." His songwriting continues to grow and his guitar skills (which he tends to hide under a bushel a little), never flashy or grabbing the spotlight, have become mature and sophisticated, a long way from his days in Green on Red. One of America's great underground artists, Prophet's slowly blooming into a major figure.

I was really wasting away and in need of either a good shag or at least a peice of musical inspiration to get me by. I think that God has a funny way of telling me that I should keep my virginity for a little while longer. In the meantime I was randomly introduced to CHUCK PROPhETS, NO OTHER LOVE album. I appreciate and never completely understand my preference in music, but am confident that my flavour in music inspiration (like few things in life) somehow always seems to be a direct hit. So as I begin my journey into the first couple of tracks, I become aware of totally tuning into this cd. My body begins to bounce insync with the beats and Prophets love sick vocals. Somewhere around the middle of the album I stumbled upon NO OTHER LOVE. It made me miss my momma, and I almost had to take a jog to get rid of the amount of energy being depressed and day-dreaming it processed in me. Finally near the end was the song that made me fall in love all over again with life and its amusing non-confrontational aspects...THATS HOW MUCH I NEED YOUR LOVE. I am almost positive that this song was meant to be played while speeding away from your ex-lovers trailer, no longer in doubt about how much loves yearning and meaning will do to your self esteem.
