Now if one talks about how Nimoy's ego led him astray, you are almost obligated to then discuss the many songs of William Shatner and wonder what on earth the man was thinking. Not I. I actually like a lot of his musical work, including "Mr Tambourine Man". I have a suspicion that 1968's The Transformed Man will be what future generations remember about William Shatner (if they remember him at all) and they will wonder why he wasn't appreciated in his own time. Ok, that may be a bit of a stretch, but he is worth listening to with an open mind.
It must be good, because "spoken word" usually means "pretentious crap" as far as I'm concerned.
