I'm noticing that all of the reviews for this soundtrack were written before the film came out. If you actually watch the film, every song has a cogent meaning for the film and works in concert with the storyline.

I would say this is definitely my favorite soundtrack from a Marvel film. The dubstep is so aappropriate for Electro and all of the pop music made me laugh and/or feel. Zero complaints from me.

No doubt about it, "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is one of the finer Zimmer scores in recent memory. You can tell that Zimmer and his "super group" really got the creative juices flowing. The Electro material in "My Enemy" and "Still Crazy" won over my skeptical self (as one who hates dubstep) with its intelligent and energizing blend of electronica, baroque and spoken-word/chanting. Electro's material is truly electrifying, and also gets into your head. But Spider-man also gets some great material: his main theme is a cocky, swaggering trumpet piece first performed in "I'm Spiderman" which receives a tender, understated performance in "Ground Rules" and makes its best and most powerful appearance towards the end of "You're That Spider Guy", as well as being worked in throughout the score.

Zimmer also composes a truly tender and moving love theme, and perhaps the best cue of the score is "We're Best Friends", where it is performed with lush strings and fluttering woodwinds. A true piece of beauty that touches the heart. "I Need To Know" also infuses the listener with a thrilled sense of anticipation, mixing electronics and strings in a classic Zimmer build-up construct. Also notable is "There He Is", with a fluttering electronic and guitar arpeggio piece that conjures up images of creeping, crawling spiders. Truly a brilliant conceptual piece.

Unfortunately, the material for Green Goblin is decidedly less inspired. "I'm Goblin" really is just cacophony, though definitely energized cacophony with some frantic string work, but the appearance of the horn of doom just isn't all that engaging.

Hans Zimmer sure does get all the love these days when it comes to physical releases of his movie scores. Remember the "good ole days" when nearly all movie score CDs were released about a week before the movie came out? Yeah...I know you can get the digital copies pretty early, but if you like to "really own" your collection...you have to wait. Zimmer's CDs get all the package glory. Like Superman Man of Steel, this package comes with some great extras. I was shocked when I opened up the package from the mail and seen the sheer size of this thing. It comes in an oversized paper tri-fold with an art book that contains pictures from the movie and the recording session. There is also some great liner notes as well. I honestly hate paper tri-folds. I know they are more environmental friendly but they can be terrible for CDs. You have to slide them in and out of the paper pockets and your bound to scuff up the disk a little by doing so. Just transfer your stuff digitally and maybe you'll only ever need to slide them out once. There are two discs here with the first disc which focuses on the score. The "non deluxe" version has 20 tracks that are a mix of songs inspired by the movie and a few score cues thrown in. The deluxe version here has more score cues added. Compare the track numbers from the two versions and you can see that the better deal is with the deluxe edition. More bonuses follow on disc two. It contains extra bits of music from the film, remixes, and original songs from contemporary artist. I don't really care for this type of music but I do appreciate having the 5 other bonus score tracks/remixes.
This is a great score and you have to appreciate Zimmer's desire to collaborate with artist to create these soundtracks.

Amazing score--one of the best music purchases I made in 2014! Love this album--the combination of electronica with orchestra is masterfully done!

The soundtrack for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is one that I enjoyed listening to. However, it's not particularly a memorable score and I don't see myself returning to it very often.

I should admit right now that I am a huge Hans Zimmer fan. I think his scores for the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies as well as his work on The Dark Knight trilogy is some of the best work in modern film. At this point in his career, I love that Zimmer is still experimenting and doing some unique work. But the thing about experimentation is that sometimes it works out great; other times not so much. "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is a nice soundtrack with quality moments, but it doesn't come anywhere near the greatness of scores like Gladiator, The Last Samurai, or The Dark Knight.

My first impression of the soundtrack is that there are some tracks I like very much, but overall the soundtrack seemed more bland and repetitive than I would have liked. It should be noted that I am simply discussing the isolated listening experience of hearing the soundtrack (music often functions better when placed in the context of the movie). Zimmer's frequent use of electronics is always fascinating to me, but sometimes I wish he would compose something more old-fashioned every now and then.

The most important piece is the main theme for Spider-Man. In the first "Amazing Spider-Man" film, composer James Horner had a grand theme that I liked very much. It was subtle for most of the film, but continued to build (and can be heard in its full glory near the end of the movie and on the final track titled "Promises" on the soundtrack). That previous theme is not reused or referenced at all in the second film's album (which is a shame, but not surprising given the change in composers).
