Spiderman ~ Spider-Man: Music From And Insp

Amazon.ca

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

This collection of music from one of the summer of 2002's most anticipated blockbusters definitely has its moments. For the most part, it's a collection of great music, but it suffered from less-than-spectacular mixing. In fact, I think that my college roommate and I used to put more thought into the order of the songs on the plethora of mix tapes we used to make for our road trips.
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.

OK, so I forgot to send my order card back in time to a certain mail-order record club and I'm stuck with the "Spider-Man" Soundtrack. It's not so bad. As movie soundtracks go, it's a little tough for a collection of songs to resemble Spider-Man, but these teen-oriented, rock driven testements of the day are as fun and entertaining as your favorite second string Super Hero. Just try not to sing along to the vocal anthem joy of rock and roll in Sum 41's "What We're All About". The sensitive "Bother" by Corey Taylor reaches dramatic tuneful plateaus, and The Hive's "Hate To Say I Told You So" sounds like old recharged Kinks records with a 2003 mega production team. Infected"s "I-IV-V" is a diamond in the rough and tough modern rock sound asking the unlikely question, "What's your favorite color?", and standing out like a whiz kid in a classroom of degenerates, and Jerry Cantrell's "She Was My Girl". the album's best track, is as rock and roll monumental as say, Blue Oyster Cult's "Don't Fear The Reaper". Almost everything else sounds like Stone Temple Pilots or Pearl Jam to me, but so does most of rock radio. The movie themes by Danny Elfman are like clouds in search of a celestial melody and it takes forever for them to roll by. The final song, Aerosmith's "Theme From Spider Man" is a bit uninspired in the midst of these teen beat rock records and it's like pulling up a chair for Grandpa who commands both respect and boredom.

In no way am I dissing these bands or Spider-Man. =)>
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!!!

I suppose it's not the fault of the "Spider-Man" guys that this soundtrack will inevitably be compared to the music used in movies like Richard Donner's "Superman," but knowing that, you'd think they would have put forth the effort to do a better job. I'll be honest. We comic book fans are spoiled. John Williams composed what, in my mind, is the greatest theatrical score in history for that 1978 film. We now crave a good, distinctive score for each superhero, and that's not what we're getting here.
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.
