Never judge a book....,
By A Customer
This review is from: Has Been (Audio CD)
Having heard the Shat's magnificant Transformed Man album I approached this expecting a bit of a laugh. While there are a couple of tongue in cheek tracks (Has Been, I Can't Behind That) they never stray into the ridiculous category (like his Mr.Tambourine Man/Lucy In The Sky/etc covers). Instead we have what actually turns out to be many heartfelt ballads (check out It Hasn't Happened Yet/That's Me Trying). Ben Folds', at times, beautiful piano accompaniment fits perfectly with Shatner's 'poetic' vocal style to create an album that'll have you gazing out the window thoughtfully one minute, and laughing along with the common people the next. Dismiss at your peril.
