"Prophet On The Barstool"
by Michael C Smith
"Prophet On The Barstool" begins with a foot-stomping ramble of political and social unrest with it's lead track "90 & 9" and ends with a prayer screamed from the deepest depths of despair with album closer "Laid to Rest". The 8 tracks in between range from love songs to confessionals, each one uniquely individual yet, hauntingly universal. It's an album designed to be heard from start to finish. An album that invites its listener to journey, to participate, to love, to fight and when finished; to reflect & repeat. A beautifully constructed slice of Americana, Roots and acoustic rock.
