- IGN Music's Spence D. has delivered his verdict on William Shatner's new album, Has Been. Although the actor's singing efforts have often met with derision, Spence found much of value in the album: "On the surface it's easy to dismiss Has Been as a lark, a desperate exercise in self-effacing camp. Yet if you really listen to the words Shatner is reciting, it's at times an incredibly poignant and heartfelt examination of a man who has—as clichéd as it sounds—seen and done it all."
