There’s eclectic. And then there’s all over the shop. Chuck Prophet veers dangerously towards the latter on his seventh solo album. The opener is a dirty low-down blues. The title song is all harps and windchimes. “You Did” is a cross between hip hop and doo wop. “Smallest Man In The World” is a Lee Hazlewood-style ballad. And that’s just the first four tracks. Prophet admits he hit a wall halfway through and called in the Magic Band’s Eric Drew Feldman to refocus the album from the producer’s chair. But there are still rather too many strands left unravelled.
