Anyone considering buying this latest offering from William Shatner should realize that his "singing" is an acquired taste. Hunt up some samples or listen to a few tracks online to see if this is for you. That said, if you "get" what Shatner and company are up to here, then you are in for a real treat!

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.

I begin by stating "I am a BIG fan of William Shatner". I continue by saying that his previous album ("Has Been") was a triumph - for him and the others involved in it, including the music, the lyrics and the delivery, ALL of which were original, surprising, touching and - just plain excellent. I conclude by admitting that I am actually hugely disappointed in his album "Seeking Major Tom", from all the aspects just mentioned. I sincerely regret that this is so.

This is my first William Shatner CD and I loved it. He ties all the songs together with small snippets of his theme song that has the most haunting background music and singers. I smiled everytime I realized what song he was singing(sorry,talking). The bad part is I liked it so much that I purchased his first CD. "The Transformed Man" was a big letdown. Anyone who finds William Shatner funny will enjoy "Seeking Major Tom".

Fans of William Shatner may argue that no one else delivers a line so well, or at least in quite the same way. Such people will find particular delight in this collection of songs, all with a space theme. A side benefit of Mr. Shatner's unique interpretive talent is that lyrics which may have been impossible to understand in all earlier renditions are now presented with crystal clarity, more poignant and imbued with more meaning than they have ever been before.
