No Other Love (2021 Reissue)
No Other Love is maverick genre-bending in the manner of Beck and Jim White, and the stylistic variety suits Prophet’s compositions, peopled by crazed desperados and beautiful losers.
The songs run the gamut from the raunchy horn- driven swagger of ‘That’s How Much I Need Your Love’ to the stinging, pleading ‘Elouise’, where his ever-inventive guitar vies with Farfisa organ.
Prophet enjoys spicing songs with pop culture references, but his wry humour is counterbalanced by a strong moral undertow in ‘I Bow Down and Pray to Every Woman I See’ and the beautiful ‘Summertime Thing’. This is a Prophet with plenty of honour.
