William Shatner – Has Been

Canada, 2004, spoken word / rock

This is a well-produced and put-together spoken word album. Whenever I spin this, I feel like I’m just hanging out with the Shat. He’s got tracks with a lot of energy like his cover of “Common People” or his duet with Henry Rollins, “I Can’t Get Behind That”, in which they both rant about all the shit that pisses them off in daily life. But he’s also got some rather touching songs about an absent father meeting his adult daughters as well as what it means to be a famous person but think of yourself as just a normal dude.
