5.0 out of 5 stars For All You Spidey Movie Fans..., June 9, 2002
This review is from: Spider-Man: Original Motion Picture Score (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.
