Editorial Reviews

Import-only collection of solo tracks from Star Trek veterans Leonard Nimoy (Mr. Spock) and William Shatner (Captain Kirk) compiled together on one CD that goes where no man has gone before! Spaced Out is a collection of curiously compelling recordings that certainly made use of the actors' SciFi notoriety during their '60s heyday. Surreal soliloquies, mad monologues and peculiar parlance are all here! Hear Spock sing! Hear James T. Kirk 'rap'! Highly illogical, indeed. 24 tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where No Manure Has Gone Before April 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I used to think the funniest unintentionally funny thing I'd ever heard was Lorne Green, Dan Blocker and Michael Landon butchering the theme from "Bonanza." Then I got this album. The tone-deaf stars of "Bonanza" have nothing on "Star Trek's" William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, whose insatiable TV-star egos pushed them to record music and monologues that transcend mere mediocrity and ineptitude, constituting an alien art form that defies earthly description. Whatever it is, it's the best of it, or the worst, depending upon your point of view. You'll love it passionately, like I do, or you'll despise it with every fiber of your being, like my wife does. There's no middle ground here.
Shatner's contributions, dramatic monologues set to florid music and rock songs performed with straightjacket intensity, are all taken from his legendary album "The Transformed Man." No one is safe from the shame of Canada: The hallowed words of Shakespeare, Lennon-McCartney and Bob Dylan are trampled and tortured in Shatner's patented overripe acting style, turned up to eleven. Shatner's anguished cry of "Mr. Tambourine Man!!!!" at the end of that song is so unexpected and frightening, it would kill a strolling minstrel dead in his tracks. I must confess, I'm a sucker for Shatner's histrionics, and I admire the chutzpa it took to be a performance artist of such...uniqueness. "It Was a Very Good Year," with Shatner exercising restraint (for him), actually achieves a certain elegance. It's my favorite burst of Shatnerian flatulence.
Nimoy was much more ambitious than Shatner, churning out a mind-boggling five albums of folk, country-western and soft rock covers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mister tambourine man... MISTER TAMBOURINE MAN!!! September 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love so-bad-it's-good music, so obviously I had to have this CD. There's so much superlatively, deliciously, appallingly bad stuff on this CD it's hard to know where to begin. Most of the CD is taken up by Nimoy, but the few Shatner tracks scale heights of awfulness that few other artists have even approached (not even Bobby Goldsboro). "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and "Mr. Tambourine Man" prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that method acting and popular songs are not a marriage made in heaven. In fact, together they are possibly the worst songs ever recorded by anyone anywhere. I challenge you to listen to these two songs back-to-back and decide which is worse -- perhaps that's something man was never meant to know. The Nimoy tracks are not quite as spectacular, but there are many highlights there too: "Highly Illogical" is delightfully awful, and "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" is completely demented (it's a favorite on the Dr. Demento show). The rest of the songs are mostly just evidence of Mr. Nimoy's incredibly mediocre singing voice; some of them, like "Both Sides Now" should be included on a future compilation entitled "Good Songs Sung by Bad Singers". This CD is a treasure that you'll enjoy for years, although not for the reasons the artists intended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nearly flawless oddity March 1, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Has any recorded moment surpassed the intense dementia of Shatner's final scream in "Mr. Tambourine Man"? Do we really want to know?
This absurd CD opens the window to two cult favorites who found second careers as outlandishly kitsch performers. Much has been said of Nimoy's earnest, flat baritone; the reams of Shatner critiques could fill a large, easily combustible windmill -- but that would be too convenient, and a loss to people like me who occasionally need to be reminded why they (and others) actually listen to this stuff -- closely.
These recordings are either dizzying, hardcore, lovable dreck, or, to some, aural manure. History won't decide: you will, if you dare.
I have a complaint about this disk. Yes, just one, about two selections. One of the "Nimoy" tracks doesn't belong here for any reason, as it's nothing more than forgettable lounge muzak with zero artistic input from the Green One. "Music to Watch Space Girls By" sounds like a Herb Alpert outtake where he forgot his trumpet. Also, "Spock Thoughts" is just "Desiderata" recited blandly over third-rate background noise. I can do better, and so can you.
Instead, the compilers should have included "You Are Not Alone," a hideously warbled message of solidarity in this vast, impersonal universe (certainly a theme dear to Spock), and "Alien," a superior spoken dissertation on, well, alienation. They're featured on some other CD that costs nearly $60 used. I'll stick with my cut-out bin cassette for now.
The highlights of "Spaced Out" for me are the most famous offerings: the delirious Shatner takes on Dylan and the Beatles, plus the Nimoy novelty "Bilbo Baggins.

5.0 out of 5 stars "You never can find a parking space!" -Leonard Nimoy September 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
An unintentional comedy album that surprisingly doesn't grow tiring, Spaced Out is a collection of the "best" (if there is such a thing) of Star Trek's William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy. The album is infinitely quotable, and is an absolute joy to anyone who likes, loves, or hates Star Trek.

Shatner, who until this year only had one album under his belt, makes far less appearances on the album, but he makes up for it with the entertainment value of his songs. "King Henry" is Shatner at his best, emoting every syllable, and would be a great starting point for stand-up comedians who plan to roast his acting. The Sinatra classic "Very Good Year" comes off surprisingly sincere, I have nothing bad to say about it. But Shatner truly shines on "Lucy In The Sky", as he tries to convey the vibe of the Beatles' acid trip lyrics by groaning them like a cartoon ghost. It's as good as it sounds. His highlight is the now-legendary "Mr. Tambourine Man". The usual Shatner pauses are incredibly long, as he stumbles through the Bob Dylan classic. "In the.... JINGLE... jangle... mornin'...", and concludes with an inexplicable anguished cry of the song's title, which is completely jarring and a little scary the first time you hear it. The bizzare nature of it will have your friends talking and laughing about it for months.

Nimoy, however, actually tries to sing. It's not that he's a terrible singer, it's just that everything about Leonard Nimoy is just... strange (which is why he gained a role as a man from another planet in the first place). His attempts at sincere takes on classics like Johnny Cash's "I Walk The Line" and Glen Campbell's "Gentle On My Mind" only evoke the mental image of Spock with a guitar in his lap singing ole' country tunes.
