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.

Customer Reviews

Bilbo Baggins

At least download Leonard Nimoy's "Ballad of Bilbo Baggins". You'll be hooked after the tuba solo.

Spock and the Cap are down wit it!

Spock's got the smooth, soulful, Barry White voice and the Cap is just effervescent, using his acting skills to speak his way through the songs. This is a "must have" album 'cause it'll be one you burn for sure to pass down to the kids, and it's the album to be queued when you're on the train and ya swap buds with other dudes to see what they got buzzin'. LSD is a classic and I do believe the Cap was trippin' on some Venusian 'shrooms when he hit the mic. 5 stars just ain't enough but I gotta say I'd love to hear Bilbo remixed by a down DJ.

Spock and Kirk

This album is awsome, but anyone who buys this record for acctual music is an idiot. William Shatner is so cool! Why? He's so goofy. it's a cool album.

Biography

Genre: Sci-Fi & Fantasy

On the surface, it seems Leonard Nimoy succeeds at whatever task he tackles. He has acted in films, television, and theater, and most likely will be linked forever to his memorable portrayal of Star Trek's Mr. Spock. He is 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....
