2.0 out of 5 stars I can't think of a worse way to sum up superman 6 April 2007
Format:Audio CD
All the Superman movies were fantastic and atmospheric. Alot of the praise should go to the scores that were written, which played a brilliant part in bringing superman to life. This spin-off album, however, pretty much falls on its face.

It looks as if the people compiling this album gradually began to miss the point of what they were doing. Most of the tracks are pure rock, something that is already very difficult to caputer the essense of a hero like superman with. To add to this, it isn't even particularly good rock. In contrast, a track like Chad Kroeger's hero for the spiderman movie would've worked wonders in this album, however the songs that did make it into this are pretty much very bad covers of what were quite nice melodies.

The first track, a cover of I Am Superman orginally by REM, sounds like it should work pretty well. The Academy Is... was the band chosen to do the cover, and this has to be pretty much the worst song these guys have ever done. It's bland, boring and nothing like REM's version.

Having said that there are at least three songs that work and are worthy of their place in a superman album. These are American Hard Fi's The Rescue, Paramore's Acoustic version of My Hero (originally by the Foo Fighters), and You're Never Gone by Sara Routh. If the rest of the songs had been like thise, I expect the album would have worked wonders.

As it stands, the album is a waste of an idea and has become another one of those dreary non-sensical compilations that falls flat on its face.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ehh 22 Jun 2009
By Jared McClain - Published on
Format:Audio CD
If it weren't for the Paramore cover of the Foo Fighters and the great original track by The Receiving End Of Sirens I think this CD could very easily only get 2 stars. There's a decent song by the Spill Canvas and maybe one or two others at best. But I can't say I was too disappointed since I only bought this album for the TREOS song because in a way it was the last song they made as a band before their new line up. So if you like The Receiving End.. or just really have a thing for superman, then it's well worth the few bucks you can buy it for used.

I was looking for something that had the various themes of Superman in TV & movies. This was not what I thought it was.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection Of Superman Inspired Songs 25 Nov 2013
By Eddie - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A very entertaining collection of tracks that have some connection to the great comic book character Superman. Although the vast majority of the tracks are fun to listen to, my personal favorite is "It's So Easy" by the Plain White T's. Great album, highly recommended.

There are stronger songs then others but overall this cd has some very strong hits. My Favorite is Saved by The Spill Canvas. This song alone made me consider buying this bands new album.
5.0 out of 5 stars I give 5 stars because 7 July 2006

"Save Me" is an awesome song. In fact, its my favorite on this CD. Maxeen is a great band whom I think have immense talent. You should definitely check out there CD! It's awesome. [...] I think the people who decided to put Maxeen on the Sounds of Superman are very smart. They are a powerfully talented band like Superman!
