Chuck Prophet: Bobby Fuller Died for Your Sins


Bobby Fuller Died for Your Sins marks ex-Green on Red member Chuck Prophet’s latest release, following under three years after his previous album. Pop/Rock singer  Prophet has released a host of albums during a career spanning over 25 years, with recent albums such as ‘Night Surfer’ and ‘Temple Beautiful’ giving his latest release something to live up to.

Chuck Prophet’s fourth album released on the label Yep Roc records is his best thus far, possessing the track consistency which previous releases lacked. ‘Rider or the Train’ is the standout non-single on the album, with the three selected singles: ‘Open Up Your Heart’, ‘Bobby Fuller Died for Your Sins’ and ‘Bad Year for Rock and Roll’ all matching it in terms of strength. With the 13-track album containing a few ‘fillers’ – such as ‘Killing Machine’, I would give the album a strong four stars.
