Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

You know you're dealing with a real blockbuster when the soundtrack is made up not only of rocking tracks, but of rocking tracks that were recorded specifically for the movie instead of being fished out of various preexisting albums. (Okay, except for Chubby Checker's "The Twist"--that one’s not hot off the presses.) Such is the power of Spidey that he inspired the likes of Snow Patrol, the Killers, Jet, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Wolfmother--and of course you just have to look at the title of "The Supreme Being Teaches Spider-Man How to Be in Love" to know the song is by the Flaming Lips. The overall mood is less heavy than on the previous soundtrack, with the selection hitting pretty close to an alt-rock bull's eye. Highlights include "Sealings," a return to form for Yeah Yeah Yeahs; the Walkmen's evocative "Red River"; and Jet's "Falling Star," a muscular piece of retro-balladry. Among the oddities are Coconut Records, the new project of actor (and former Phantom Planet member) Jason Schwartzman; its contribution, the lovely "Summer Day," features backup vocals by Kirsten "Mary Jane" Dunst. Still, sometimes a big name is not needed: One of the best tracks, the anthemic "Portrait of a Summer Thief," is by the unsigned (as of this writing) Austin band Sounds Under Radio. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

1.0 out of 5 stars Why not a score?? July 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I am so tired of soundtracks only for movies, and not scores. You would expect a movie like this would have even one track of score on the soundtrack. Or even a separate score CD. This is something I will look forward to if it ever happens!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best so Far May 6, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The Spider-Man series has a history of notable soundtracks. The first one featured...umm...well, it had "Hero", a very good song by two less than mediocre artists. That's actually all I remember of the first one.

The second was a huge step in the right direction. The songs by Dashboard, Yellowcard, and Jimmy Gnecco w/ Brain May were stellar, although the rest fell quite short.

With the soundtrack to Spider-Man 3, they finally got it right. There's hardly a bad song in the bunch, and the ones that are good are GOOD. The Killer's song is better than 3/4 of their last album. Snow Patrol contributes a truly awesome song, which I expected. Jet more than makes up for their Spider-Man 2 effort "Hold On" with one of the best songs on this CD. Wolfmother, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and the Flaming Lips all give very noteworthy performances, as well.

However, I think the strength of this soundtrack lies in songs from lesser-known artists. Coconut Records, Sounds Under Radio and Black Mountain offer some pretty amazing songs, while Simon Dawes' "Scared of Myself" may be my favorite song on the record.

This CD is well worth a buy. If you like the big artists who are on here, you won't be disappointed. And if you like finding new bands who are awesome, you won't be disappointed either.

5.0 out of 5 stars new ground... for once May 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I was anticipating the release of the movie into theaters, when it occured to me. What's the sountrack going to be like? Around that time, I found the dirt on the Spider-Man 3 soundtrack. I was floored when the web page opened with an interestingly new sound for things to come. I sampled the songs available (3) in their entirety. The music was very different from what was on the previous soundtracks (spider-man; spider-man 2). Each song from begining to end I found to be very solid and catchy but with very few elements of what was "Inspired" by the movie. It is a soundtrack that if listened to with a opened mind, not open-ended questions about the content, can grow on you with each listening experience. The idea behind each soundtrack from those movies, is to appeal to the youth of their generation. They promote some very promising new bands that they feel wouldn't make it otherwise. But in this case, there is music that the more mature music fans can appreciate and understand. The continuity and the editing are very well done in not only the placement of each track, it maintains a certain eclectic mood throughout.The soundtrack is very "kid friendly" for those of you who are worried about any negative elements in content. It is a little more sophisticated than the previous releases, though at times can be a little bleak in the melody of certain songs. The begining of the soundtrack is a rip roar of musical energy from "Snow Patrol" and "The Killers", to the "Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs" and "Wolfmother". Midway through the soundtrack is a little bittersweet, silly and then melancholy with tracks from "Black Mountain", "The Flaming Lips", and "Simon Dawes". The latter half of the compilation kicks off with "Chubby Checker" in his most famous song "The Twist". Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars I need you to guide me to safety May 15, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I don't know who chooses the soundtracks for movies, or how they select appropriate music. Not every film can have a Zach Braff.

But whoever did it for the megablockbuster "Spiderman 3," they have some GREAT taste in music. Rather than scrabbling for some MTV hits, the soundtrack is graced with some genuinely wonderful music -- blazing blurry hard-rockers, lush Britpop, and mellow balladry. It's more a clever rock mixtape than a soundtrack.

It kicks off with Snow Patrol's "Signal Fire," a blend of blazing guitar and lushly swirling instrumentation. The Scotrockers really shine in this one, straddling the line between Britpop and energetic rock'n'roll. "In the confusion and the aftermath/You are my signal fire/The only resolution and the only joy/Is the faint spark of forgiveness in your eyes..."

It's followed up by some hard-rocking stuff -- the Killers have a high-octane "Move Away," the Yeah Yeah Yeahs provide the sizzling "Sealings," and the glorious Wolfmother takes the hard-rock thing even further with the deliciously sludgy "Pleased to Meet You," which is a great introduction to the band.

Then with a epic grimy rocker by the Walkmen (complete with yowling), we segue into some softer material -- Black Mountain provides a beautifully sweeping folksy-rock ballad, Jet's bluesy rocker, Simon Dawes wails that he is "Scared of Myself," Rogue Wave strolls through shimmering indiepop, and Sounds Under Radio turns on the swirling, cycling electric guitars in a soaring ballad.

And with a title like "The Supreme Being Teaches Spider-Man How To Be In Love," it's pretty obvious that the Flaming Lips are involved. Their song is really lovely, with a "Soft Bulletin" softness and beauty.

4.0 out of 5 stars get this track for Wolfmother, Snow Patrol, and Jet
Okay, so maybe indie rock isn't really my scene; I'm more metal than anything. That's probably why I didn't really like this CD that much. So then why am I giving it four stars? Read more

Song Mary Jane is singing at the end in the bar?
The song is called, "I'm Through with Love", and it was sung by Marilyn Monroe in the movie Some Like it Hot. That's the only movie I know of that it's been played on (besides S-M3), but I like the song a lot!

I hope that helps!

Me Being nice
What O.S. Saboor failed to mention about his "being nice" is that when you download the album for free, the downloads are ".tar" files and cannot be opened on your computer like ".mp3" files. Not exactly doing a favor for anybody!
