Spiderman ~ Spider-Man: Music From And Insp
The boys will be so pleased. Radio-friendly stadium rock is back in a big way, and Music from and Inspired by Spider-Man makes capital use of the trend. Like the blockbuster film itself, there's an attempt to provide something enjoyably disposable for everyone--resulting in "anthemic" songs you nod along to, and then forget the second they're done. Bands and artists you probably don't know (Bleu, Black Lab, Greenwheel) add the Everyman feel Spider-Man's character is said to approximate, while heroes Aerosmith provide an appropriately cartoonish cover of the original "Spider-Man Theme" (but nice to hear them hammily rocking, rather than wringing it ballad style). And if Kid Rock shouted the chorus on a Beastie Boys joint, and their studio guitarist stole the riff from "Devil Went down to Georgia" and used it for an intro, you'd have Sum 41's latest effort ("What We're All About"). Throw in Danny Elfman, some buzz from the Hives ("Hate to Say I Told You So") and the Strokes ("When It Started"), add the token Mary Jane (Macy Gray's "My Nutmeg Phantasy"), and the soundtrack does what it should--provides rock-solid support for the film, and then fades out. --Laura Etling

After opening with the Spider-Man theme from days gone by, the album jumps into "Hero" -- the it-was-good-the-first-100,000-times single that you can't help but hear on the radio at least five times a day (though I'll admit it -- I still like the song). The Canadian boys from Sum 41 follow up with "What We're All About." And then it pretty much lost me in a sea of guitars and drums. For a while, the album just feels like one endless rock song. It gets a little sickening.
Corey Taylor breaks up the monotony with "Bother," a slower song with tons of feeling. And then the songs start to vary a little bit. A little bit. But not too much.
There are a lot of great songs on this album, but, in listening to it, I learned that you can, in fact, get too much of a good thing. Listening to this album is something like eating nothing but pizza for a month. I love that edgy rock sound, but the Spider-Man soundtrack opened my eyes to the fact that today's edgy rock bands pretty much all sound the same.
I gave the album 2 stars because most of it is horrible. The songs are horrible, they don't really stick out like real music would. There just...there I guess. Now, I'm gonna back this soundtrack up though because there is some GREAT music on here. But its too bad only a few songs on what should be a wonderful soundtrack.
Chad Kroeger featuring Josey Scott - Hero
This song is dope! I really, really love this track. This song was ALWAYS playing on radio and MTV and I loved it which is one of the reasons why i bought it.
Alien Ant Farm - Bug Bytes
This song is awesome if you like AAF. Its just really cool, although not amazing or anything.
Corey Taylor - Bother
The REAL reason why I bought this soundtrack. I saw his name and expected something extreme and heavy, but I got melodic and beautiful instead. This track is dark and dreary but put into a lovely song.
While I don't have much to say about this soundtrack, it was worth my [money]. Listen to Nickelback, Jerry Cantrell, Stone Sour, and/or Alien Ant Farm's albums too!!!
This album has two tracks from Danny Elfman's score on it, and while it's not a BAD score, there's nothing special about it. 20 years from now, no one will hear a snippet of this music and think "Spider-Man!" the way they do Williams' Superman score or even Elfman's own "Batman" from 1989. It feels very generic.
The rest of the disc is just so-so. It opens with the theme from the Spider-Man cartoon from the 70s and closes with a cover of the same song done by Aerosmith in a version infinitely inferior to the one done by the Ramones a few years ago. In-between are a sampling of songs, some good, some bad. The only ones that really stand out are Chad Kroeger's "Hero" (which is a good song, although we've all heard it 17,000 times by now), and the surprisingly good "Somebody Else" by Bleu, which I think really sums up the Peter Parker character very well. Those two tracks I can listen to over and over again. The rest of the disc -- I can take it or leave it.

I am a big fan of spider-man since the tender age of 6 years old. I wanted to buy the cd of music from spider-man and I went on amazon.ca to buy it there right on the spot. Read morePublished on Oct. 29 2009 by Patrick Richard
This CD sucks. It doesn't contain good music; it only contains crap. The only exceptional tracks are the "Main Title" and "Farewell," both of which are by Danny... Read morePublished on July 12 2004 by Redeemer
If one of you was trying to figure out the name of the song in the 2nd Spiderman trailer it's called Hell Above Water by Curve.Published on July 12 2004

I love the music on this CD...I hate the fact that the song "Bother" by "Corey Taylor" was editted to delete a slightly vulgar word. Read morePublished on Nov. 4 2003 by Jennifer
The only reason why i give this 5 stars is because of the Pete Yorn song, "undercover". I really love this song.
The rest of the songs are "vintage rock" or nu-metal. Read more
