Shatner entered strange new worlds on Star Trek and on one of the all-time cult-classic albums, 1968's The Transformed Man . Now, he merges those two galaxies-outer space and music-as he aims his iconic "speak-sing" delivery at a host of rock classics and other space-themed songs. The guest list alone will make this one of the most talked-about releases of the year (Sheryl Crow, Ritchie Blackmore, Lyle Lovett, Steve Miller, Peter Frampton, members of the Strokes, Kinks, Yes, Deep Purple, MC5 and more), but it's Bill who's at the center of this universe, putting his own warped (warp-speed?) spin on Major Tom; Space Oddity; Space Cowboy; Space Truckin'; She Blinded Me with Science; Spirit in the Sky; Iron Man; Twilight Zone , and more on 2 CDs or three vinyl LPs!

Seeking Major Tom is not as good as Has Been. I want to make that clear right off. Has Been is a classic album, one of the best I've ever heard (check out my review if you don't believe me), containing a cover or two but mostly original, thought-provoking, enjoyable material you won't soon forget.
Seeking Major Tom is a collection of covers -- brilliant, inspired covers, but covers nonetheless. As much as I enjoyed the double set, this fact did cost the album a star in my rating. Case in point, I find the lone original song, Struggle, to be the best of the 20 offerings here.
The album is no slouch though. Boasting an array of high-calibre talent, including Sheryl Crow, Ritchie Blackmore, Lyle Lovett, Peter Frampton, Steve Miller, Ernie Watts, Dave Davies and others, there is a wealth of musical talent.
The concept is simple: songs about Major Tom or exploring what he may have gone through while lost in space and the album is a feast for the ears when listened to in its entirety. This is due to the eclectic array of songs from Space Oddity (of course) to Space Truckin' (a standout), Shatner's immortal Rocket Man (subdued here but still captivating),She Blinded Me With Science (a hoot), Walkin' On The Moon, Spirit In The Sky (another standout), Lost In The Stars (excellent), Mr.Read more ›
