The stars of Paramount
take their fandom to red alert in creating some of the most
entertaining music heard this side of the Alpha Quadrant.
Boldly go where no soundtrack has gone before with Trek-inspired
music from rock gods Warp 11, Klingon metal warriors Stovokor,
"filk" (science fiction folk) innovator Leslie Fish,
filk teenagers Angelica and Athrylis Sather Hodgetts, punk
rock savans No Kill I and their spawn No Kill I: Deep Space
Nine and No Kill I: The Next Generation...
official soundtrack to Trekkies 2 is an odd release.
It showcases a wide variety of music from the death metal
screechings of Klingon band Stovokor, to the Trek folk
songs (filk) of Leslie Fish.
majority of songs on this collection are very tongue in cheek
and there is something rather entertaining about listening
to Klingons performing death metal tracks and Warp 11 singing
about William Shatner.
was actually the filk tracks that I was most disturbed by.
You could almost imaging (horror of horrors) the singers closing
their eyes, in that way that somehow makes you feel physically
ill, while they sing. I've
seen religious groups where the members behaved exactly like
the filk fans on Christian weekends. The Expendable Guy
track I held in the same regard as I would a song written
and performed by a small boy with no real talent, but a critical
medical condition - it was pants, but everyone politely applauds
it. In fact anyone could get up on stage and rant any old
crap and they'd probably whoop and cheer.
stick to Stovokor and you won't go wrong - that is the spirit
amusing sound bites between each music track help to keep
this CD from taking itself too seriously and they do manage
to link the tracks together pretty well.
don't really know who this collection will really appeal to,
other than the extreme members of Trek fandom. But
there is something hypnotically attractive about it.
