iTunes Review

Captain Kirk lives! With an eclectic set of songs about space, William Shatner continues his hilarious, touching, inspired, and insane approach to music. Since he isn’t really a singer, he surrounds himself with folks like Brad Paisley, Sheryl Crow, and Lyle Lovett to help with the heavy lifting. But the fact is, this album wouldn’t be half as enjoyable without Shatner yelling “Come on!” throughout Deep Purple’s “Space Truckin’,” featuring a guitar solo from Texas bluesman Johnny Winter. Just as Shatner’s 1968 album (The Transformed Man) and his 2004 comeback (Has Been) featured unexpected covers, Seeking Major Tom includes a compelling list of tunes. The Police’s “Walking on the Moon,” with Toots Hibbert, is passionately bizarre. Thomas Dolby’s “She Blinded Me with Science” is the perfect joke for the former commander of the USS Enterprise. Still, the choices are informed. Hawkwind’s classic “Silver Machine,” The Byrds’ “Mr. Spaceman,” Steve Miller’s “Space Cowboy,” and Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man” are all rendered in the most Shatnered of tones. An absolute joy and perfect for parties.

Customer Reviews

What's wrong with you?

It's SUPPOSED to be stupid, morons! What are you - - 20 years old? See there was this mysterious time once - - called the time before you were born where other things happened that didn't involve your tiny little existence. Shatner made some hilariously horrible records during that mysterious time (famously covering LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS, for example) and has embraced the idea that he had no business making records or covering songs - - which is exactly what this is about. Why do you think all of these famous musicians agreed to do it? Get a freaking clue and a sense of humor. Just go back to your Evanescence CDs and taking yourself way too seriously.

best.. camp...ever!

For those of us who have a sense of humor and don't spend our days on iTunes trying to sound like a music elitist, this is one of the most amusing albums you could own. It's great music with ridiculous vocal renditions by Shatner. It's camp, take it for what it is. As evident by their appearances, many of the original artists loved the idea, and so did I.

Better than Lou Reed

These songs are a little funny, like they are meant to be. Shatner pretty much just "talk sings" these songs. Isn't that what Lou Reed does, off key? Maybe Metallica should have done an album with TJ Hooker instead.


Genre: Sci-Fi & Fantasy

The crew of the Starship Enterprise no longer soars through the galaxy under the command of Captain James T. Kirk, but they continue to inhabit the airwaves on a number of pop and rock recordings. The Vulcan Mr. Spock, aka Leonard Nimoy, Lieutenant Uhura, aka Nichelle Nichols, and several others from the series' next generation of actors have released albums, and Kirk -- actually his alter ego, William Shatner -- is still commander of the pack. His spoken word recordings of "Lucy in the Sky with...
