Album Review

One of the true ultimates in so-bad-it's-sublime listening. This collection culls the most interesting results of the famously bad recording careers of Star Trek's Kirk and Spock, both of whom recorded albums in the late 1960s. William Shatner's seven cuts all stem from his notorious album The Transformed Man, which the liner notes here aptly describe as "a bewildering collision of Dylan, Shakespeare, and the Beatles, narrated over a strangely disconnected free-for-all." Leonard Nimoy, meanwhile, gets considerably more attention, owing to his having recorded five (!) albums of "musical" material — mostly covers of folk-rock contemporary tunes. He turns in no genuinely good material, but his unsteady attempts at carrying a tune are worth more than a few laughs, whether in his struggles to keep the meter in "Put a Little Love in Your Heart" or his attempts to channel the "spirit" of Spock in "Highly Illogical" and "Spock Thoughts" (the latter of which is actually "Desiderata"). Although a high rating seems inappropriate for a collection such as this, Spaced Out is actually a must-have for ironists who wish to impress their friends with pop culture detritus.

Laugh yourself silly

My friends and I were on a road trip when someone played this cd in the car. We laughed and had a great time making fun of all of the tracks.

Really guys?! Really?!

Fail. Though Nimoy was actually significantly better than I had expected.

Biography

Genre: Sci-Fi & Fantasy

On the surface, it seems Leonard Nimoy succeeded at whatever task he tackled. He acted in films, television, and theater, and most likely will be linked forever to his memorable portrayal of Star Trek's Mr. Spock. He was an author of poetry and other works, as well as a director and a producer. He even recorded almost a dozen albums, and there, unfortunately, is where Nimoy finally faltered. One recording, Mr. Spock's Music from Outer Space, is particularly campy. Featured numbers included "Highly...
