5.0 out of 5 stars Elfman shows his spider sense August 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The original motion picture score to "Spider-Man" is a great CD. The score is composed by sci-fi/fantasy favorite Danny Elfman and conducted by Pete Anthony. On this disc, they achieve an effective blend of Wagnerian bombast and a contemporary, high-tech sound.
The CD gets off to a solid start with the exciting, energetic "Main Title." "Transformations" has some ominous, eerie moments. One of the best tracks is "Costume Montage": it has a fresh, funky energy. "Revenge," featuring some really driving percussion, is probably the best action music on the CD, although "Parade Attack" has a memorable buildup of suspense. Also solid are the quieter moments on the CD: "Alone" has a nice introspective sound, and "Revelation" has a tenderly emotional feel.
Overall, this CD effectively evokes the excitement and wonder as Peter Parker discovers and explores his spider-like powers. But the CD also touches effectively on the hero's inner emotional journey. The music also evokes the fast pace of Spider-Man's urban environment. Overall, another solid achievement for Elfman: this is a CD which is enjoyable as a piece of music on its own, but which also makes you want to see the movie again.

5.0 out of 5 stars For All You Spidey Movie Fans... June 9, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I saw the Spider-Man movie not too long ago, and now my hubster is wondering if his real wife has been abducted by some weird Spider-Man freak. :) You name it, I've been getting it, from video games to books to comics. So, naturally, I decided to invest in the movie's score and soundtrack.
The soundtrack was a real snooze. The only two songs on it which had anything to do with Spidey were the two renditions of the Spider-Man theme. However, I love the Spider-Man score. Danny Elfman is brilliant in capturing the feel and the mood of the movie in the music, and in transporting you back into the movie as you replay the scenes in your mind. The dark (yet not too dark) and brooding (yet exciting) ambiance captures the character of Peter Parker, the reluctant hero who is thrust into his calling by a genetically-alerted spider and a sense of duty. Great power, and great responsibility... :)
I highly recommend this score just for the sheer listening experience. Make sure to crank the speakers, especially in the Main Titles. There is a consistent sound to the tracks without being redundant, but the ones which stick out most to me are the Montages and the Main.
I think Danny Elfman's creativity and musical brilliance in this score earn every one of the 5 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointed June 5, 2002
By Leanna
Format:Audio CD
I was very excited when I found out that the actual soundtrack for "Spider-Man" was being released, so excited that I went out and bought it the first day. I've listened to it five or so times already, and I've been somewhat disappointed. Somehow, I remember it being much better when I was actually watching the movie.
First of all, it is only about 45 minutes long, so if you were hoping for one of those hour-long soundtracks, then this isn't the one for you. Second, I found a lot of the songs to be "quieter" than I expected. Certainly not car CD player fare.
However, Danny Elfman's score has it's redeeming moments. "Main Title," "Costume Montage," and "City Montage" are the tracks that standout the most to me.
Bottom Line: Only buy this if you really have a thing for Spider-Man or are a big Danny Elfman fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular SPIDER-MAN Score! September 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
When I first saw the "Spider-Man" film, not only was I in awe of the impressive visuals that were appearing before me,but also as much with the spectacular score that the genius Danny Elfman had composed.
This is one potent,powerful and memorable Motion Picture Score that enhances the quality of this film. From the very first notes of the "Main Title",I knew this score was going to be something special - and it is! It has so much going for it.

The "Main Title" and other compositions throughout the score make great use of the choir,whether it be for fast paced action sequences or personal,emotional scenes that occur every so often.
The track "Costume Montage" also is a beautiful combination of score and guitar,and the two compliment each other well.It being one of my favourite tracks on the album.
The track "Revenge",this is another pure delight from the score. It firstly commences in great style with orchestra,then as the pace and emotion gradually picks up, the forces of orchestra, choir and synthesizer combine,to produce another memorable piece.

If I were asked to mention a few of my favourite tracks from this admirable score they would have to be the following - the "Main Title","Costume Montage","Revenge","Revelation" and "Final Confrontation".
This score would have to be one of the best that Danny Elfman has composed thus far in his long and illustrious career. A bold statement, but a true one nonetheless - to my way of thinking anyway!

3.0 out of 5 stars Holy wrong tone, Batman! August 23, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I don't know why or how this soundtrack is getting so many 5 star ratings. It is strictly average material -- a lot of horns blowing in an extended homage to the infinitely superior Batman soundtrack. I'll forgive a little self-borrowing -- after all, I am a John Williams fan -- but only in moderation.
In this case, the somber tone that served the Batman soundtrack so well poorly suits a more light-hearted character like Spider-Man. The Batman-esque tones work well with the pieces associated with the dark, conflicted Green Goblin, like "Parade Attack," "Transformations," and even "Final Confrontation." But the non-Goblin parts of the movie called for a different tone, yet the soundtrack doesn't deliver.
I guess what I wanted was music that initially sounded carefree, but upon further listening, revealed the tragic underpinnings of Spider-Man's character. This soundtrack delivers a lot of the second, but little of the first.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great theme; not much else
I think the Spider-Man theme is one of the best pieces of superhero music ever written. The album as a whole, however, is fairly short and just didn't grab my attention. Read more
