Nichelle Communicates A Winner!
"Out of This World" is a great album by underrated Nichelle Nichols. Nichelle is best know for playing the great Lt. Uhura on Star Trek. Few folks know she use to tour with Duke Ellington in the 1950's - - that's how good she is!! Nichelle jumps all over the musical map on this album: the wonderul and pensive ballad "Gene" will touch your heart. There are two versions here. The "Poetry" version is the best since it truly captures the emotion behind the song. "Uhura's Theme" is light and fluffy and skims along at a perfect pace. "Beyond Antares" features vocal thrills as Nichols makes use of her stunning upper register. "Star Rock" is pure pop, and lots of fun - - it could have been a B-52's song! "Ancestry" is a spellbinding rocker that should have found a home on alternative rock radio. Her delivery is almost punk-rock. Very refresting indeed! "Rock the World" chuggs along on a rock/dance/trance beat that will leave you breathless. The album ends with a great interview. This is a great album for all that appreciate good solid singing and good solid beats. I only wish she was still recording!
Not the "Beyond Antares" you expect
I expected "Beyond Antares" to be the original haunting melodic version sung on Star Trek. But the audio preview is misleading. The song does start out that way, but quickly switches to a completely different rock style similar to what you hear in the audio previews of the other songs on the album.
