Takes movie soundtracks to a new level!!!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Music From And Inspired By Spider-Man (Audio CD)
From the classic old-school "Spiderman" theme tune to the new, heavier version by ageing rockers, Aerosmith this CD just keeps getting more and more listenable.
Nickelbacks recent success has completed a meteoric rise to rock stardom and this new-found status is truly justified when you listen to the magnificent Chad Kroeger on the movies blockbuster song, "Hero". A mellow, but intensely inspiring track is made all the better with the combination of Kroegers gritty tones and the supplementation of the higher, whining voice of Saliva's Josey Scott.
Sum 41 provide the other major track on the album with their unparalleled rock-hop style, giving us "What We're All About", a tune that just oozes jump appeal.
The CD also contains significant input from Alien Ant Farm, The Strokes, The Hives and an awesome Macy Gray track re-mixed by Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello.
But, perhaps the most outstanding contribution is that of Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor. If you think you're used to the screaming and shouting of this guy, then think again. I could'nt believe it when I first heard it, but astoundingly, Taylor sings a melodic, moody ballad with "Bother." This guy can really sing and has an awesome voice. If you don't like anything else on this CD then buy it for this track alone cos it is truly amazing!!!
Probably the most listened to CD in my collection at the moment and it serves only to intensify the excitement over the upcoming release of the movie. BUY IT!!!
