3.0 out of 5 stars Dated Slice of Rock from Another By-Gone Era, 29 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Spider Man - Music From And Inspired By (Audio CD)
Back in 2002, Spider Man became a major success for Sam Rami's film team, that it spawned two sequels. So in terms of music from the actual film, there are two pieces from Danny Elfman's entertaining score, and a few tracks from the likes of The Strokes and Sum 41, which are present in this soundtrack. There are also songs from the likes of Chad Kroeger and Macy Gray. There is also the theme tune to the infamous Saturday morning TV show from the 1970s as well, for nostalgia's sake. But the film also had tracks from the likes of Laibach and Oleander, which do not feature on this soundtrack.
So what was the purpose of shoehorning the likes of Alien Ant Farm, The Hives, and even a so-so cover of that TV theme song from Aerosmith into this? The results make the album- it does not deserve the title of soundtrack with all this filler! - A dated slice of rock from another by-gone era. Some tracks are enjoyable to revisit, such as The Hives' Hate to Say I Told You So, and there are even some standout gems, like Corey Taylor's Bother. But as the rest of the tracks are nearly forgettable, from the likes of Injected, Default, and Greenwheel, it just makes this album sound like generic background music to a student's bedroom back in the early 2000s.
So this Spider Man album makes an effort in providing actual music from the film, but the often-dreaded 'inspired by' tracks bog it down to make it an average rock compilation from this era.
