5.0 out of 5 stars Heard the New Spider-Man CD Yet? August 11, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have. Technically, it's not a new CD, it's the 25th anniversary re-issue of "Spider-Man: Rock Reflections on a Superhero," complete with the obligatory narration by Stan Lee.
My copy arrived yesterday, and I've been playing it over and over. It is pure, thorough, unapologetic 1970s cheese, but it's almost too much fun. Imagine "Schoolhouse Rock" filtered through "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" and you have a pretty clear idea of what this CD is like. It hearkens back to a time when comics were fun to read. Sigh.
Oh, one last thing. The back of the CD shows a bunch of Marvel characters playing on musical instruments: Luke Cage on bass, the Hulk on drums, Captain America on tambourine, Black Panther on electric guitar, and so on. The image of "Conan and the Barbarians on Strings" (Conan playing cello) alone is worth the cost of the CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A blast from my past. February 26, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I can't tell you how thrilled I was to see this album re-released on CD. I grew up with this album, which may be dated now, but is still great fun. It's loaded with catchy, sing along songs, and although a few are decidely cheesey, most are an honest attempt to catch the depth and emotion of the character done in the style of the times. Great stuff! J. Blues Rocks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very seventies, but fun May 17, 2002
By M.
Format:Audio CD
If you like (early) seventies music *and* Spider-Man, what's not to like? It's no great work of art, but it's good fun and most of the music isn't half-bad.
The CD is presented in a narrative story format by Stan Lee, telling a sort of "day in the life of Spider-Man" tale, with the song tracks filling in the action between the spoken story-telling. The music carries the balance of the CD and the effect comes off pretty well. Most of the songs aren't all that thrilling, but there's a couple catchy ones to hold your interest for the occasional repeated listing. And it's just a cool item to have for your average Spider-Man fan.
'Nuff said!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent on so many levels July 10, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This was probably one of the first "rock" albums I ever owned as a kid (purchsed at a neighborhood grocery store WAY back when they sold albums!), so my recollection of it is tainted by nostalgia--I fell like an eleven year old every time I hear it.
Unfortanately, Amazon only allows for the first several songs for sampling. IMHO, the best songs are #5, #9 and #10. Some truly fun music (and some sad ones...who can resist the hearbreak of "A Soldier Starts to Bleed" as Stan Lee descibes the fateful death of Gwen Stacy at the hands of the Green Goblin?)
Think of Partridge Family Pop, Some 70's Earth Wind & Fire Soul, and some Jim Croce-esque ballads. A wonderful, experiment of an album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must For Superhero Fans September 29, 2006
Format:Audio CD
What more could you ask for than seventies rock anthems telling the story of Peter Parker/Spiderman complete with narration by Stan Lee. I would spend an evening listening to this, than watching either of the recent movies. Just don't make me choose between the 70's live action show and this. That my friends would be a tough call.

Two of my favorite tracks are "New Point of View," about Peter discovering his new powers and abilities, and "No One's Got A Crush On Peter," about the struggles of the superhero who still struggles with the problems of teenage life.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's like fighting both sides of a mirror... May 26, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I remember seeing ads for this album in Marvel Comics back when I was a kid. Never got it back then, but now I have it on CD. It tells the story of Spider-Man through music plus narration by Stan Lee. The music is in a myriad of musical styles including pop rock, doo wop, swing and even the Alice Cooper-like "Dr. Octopus Part 2". Not a great album, but it is fun. At least it's probably better than the Broadway show!

Back in the 70's I got this album in the mail from the old Heroes World catalog, and within 6 months, had worn it out. My Mom knew how much I loved this record, she ordered another one for me when she heard how much the first one was skipping and popping. When the second one came in, my Dad copied it onto 8-Track (!) for me using his good equipment. Well here I am 47 years old, and I STILL LOVE THIS RECORD. My wife laughs hysterically when she hears me singing along in my (Bat)man-cave. Like fine aged cheddar, this is some awesome cheese! For fans of Spidey, the 70's, and novelty records. Don't be a SQUARE BOY, walk the HIGH WIRE and get this CD!

4.0 out of 5 stars A perspective from a Spider-Fan under 40! June 3, 2008
Format:Audio CD
A truly unique piece of Spider-Man history, Peter Parker's first rock and roll musical adventure, soon to be joined by the broadway musical.

As a child of the 80's raised on "Spider-Man & His Amazing friends", this is not a piece of nostalgia to me (I bought it in a comic store for the first time upon it's re-release), but a window into a decade I'll never know or understand. But it is fascinating nontheless.

While not radio hits by any means, these songs are definitely more sophisticated that the usual Hanna-Barbera cartoon band nonsense.

Ranging from synth-laded prog-rock ("High Wire"), to psychadelic intropection ("Peter Stays and Spider-Man Goes") to 1950's Frankie Valle style ballads ("Gwendolyn") this album shows great range.

While there a few too many "I'm Spider-Man" themed songs, the stand out track is "Peter Stays and Spider-Man Goes" which is really the centerpiece of the album describing Peter's concerns over his dual identity.

Following close behind is the tracks Dr. Octopus parts 1 & 2 which are way out there musically, but really are brought to life by the vocalist who goes on a tirade at the end of part 2 challenging everyone from the Fantastic 4 to the Avengers claiming he will destroy them. Funny stuff!

If nothing more than to satisfy your curiosity, buy it. It's being offered extremely cheap here on Amazon, I paid $25.00 for my copy, but it was well worth it.

Stan Lee's narration was surprisingly subdued. But the music is amazingly good considering that most people would believe this to be a project made for children. Read more
