Barstool Prophets


What is a Barstool Prophet? Somebody who spends his whole life sitting around and telling you stuff you already know, but swears that before he came along you didn't know it. That's a pretty good way to describe the band. Another way to sum up "Crank" by the Barstool Prophets is that it's about as imaginative as the picture under the CD in the case: faces pressed against glass. This CD offers nothing, musically speaking. It's a thrash of guitars and drums, and it appears they didn't even try to coordinate their instruments into an organized set of successive tones and sounds (a.k.a. "music").
