Chuck Prophet never runs out of gas. He released eight albums as the frontman of Green on Red, then delivered 14 solo albums in 22 years; the most recent being this year's excellent record, Temple Beautiful.

And no one has been able to capture that sort of raw energy in music noir since Lou Reed. Prophet can still do it.
