Bobby Fuller Died For Your Sins is a classic-sounding rock album and utterly self-conscious about it. Slinging a twangy, reverb-stained ’64 Stratocaster, Chuck Prophet meditates on the death of David Bowie (“Bad Year for Rock and Roll”), as well as the visionary genius of the late Bobby “I Fought the Law” Fuller on the propulsive title track. But while the album certainly has one foot planted in rock nostalgia, Prophet also turns an eye toward current events. “Alex Nieto” is a piano-pounding protest anthem that chronicles the controversial death of the San Francisco resident who was gunned down by city police. This is rock at it’s most intensely honest.
