It isn’t every day you think to yourself “There should definitely be more music based on Star Trek.” And it isn’t every two days after that that a friend says “Hey look, here’s a band that’s doing a song for every episode of The Original Series.” And it isn’t every three months later you still haven’t listened to anything else since you downloaded said band’s albums. You with me? This may be less of a “review” than a gushy recommendation or whole hearted endorsement.
Five Year Mission is five guys that thought The Original Series “rocks so hard” that every episode deserves it’s own tribute song. I tend to agree, but as a full blown music snob, I must admit I was skeptical. Or, at least I figured it would just be the kind of thing you hear once and enjoy a laugh because you get the Trek references. Then you move along, scurrying on back to your obscure post-punk bands no one’s ever heard of. But I soon figured out these guys are much more than just a couple of geeks with a Casio and a Macbook.
The first 5YM song I heard was “The Naked Time” from their first album, Year One. I dare say it’s more than just a cute song about Mister Spock losing his Vulcan cool, but a brilliant pop song, and perhaps… TO READ THE REST, GO TO: Everything Is Star Trek And Nothing Hurts.
