A little disappointed,
This review is from: Spider-Man: Original Motion Picture Score (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.
