I'm noticing that all of the reviews for this soundtrack were written before the film came out. If you actually watch the film, every song has a cogent meaning for the film and works in concert with the storyline.

I would say this is definitely my favorite soundtrack from a Marvel film. The dubstep is so aappropriate for Electro and all of the pop music made me laugh and/or feel. Zero complaints from me.

Hans Zimmer sure does get all the love these days when it comes to physical releases of his movie scores. Remember the "good ole days" when nearly all movie score CDs were released about a week before the movie came out? Yeah...I know you can get the digital copies pretty early, but if you like to "really own" your collection...you have to wait. Zimmer's CDs get all the package glory. Like Superman Man of Steel, this package comes with some great extras. I was shocked when I opened up the package from the mail and seen the sheer size of this thing. It comes in an oversized paper tri-fold with an art book that contains pictures from the movie and the recording session. There is also some great liner notes as well. I honestly hate paper tri-folds. I know they are more environmental friendly but they can be terrible for CDs. You have to slide them in and out of the paper pockets and your bound to scuff up the disk a little by doing so. Just transfer your stuff digitally and maybe you'll only ever need to slide them out once. There are two discs here with the first disc which focuses on the score. The "non deluxe" version has 20 tracks that are a mix of songs inspired by the movie and a few score cues thrown in. The deluxe version here has more score cues added. Compare the track numbers from the two versions and you can see that the better deal is with the deluxe edition. More bonuses follow on disc two. It contains extra bits of music from the film, remixes, and original songs from contemporary artist. I don't really care for this type of music but I do appreciate having the 5 other bonus score tracks/remixes.
This is a great score and you have to appreciate Zimmer's desire to collaborate with artist to create these soundtracks.

No doubt about it, "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is one of the finer Zimmer scores in recent memory. You can tell that Zimmer and his "super group" really got the creative juices flowing. The Electro material in "My Enemy" and "Still Crazy" won over my skeptical self (as one who hates dubstep) with its intelligent and energizing blend of electronica, baroque and spoken-word/chanting. Electro's material is truly electrifying, and also gets into your head. But Spider-man also gets some great material: his main theme is a cocky, swaggering trumpet piece first performed in "I'm Spiderman" which receives a tender, understated performance in "Ground Rules" and makes its best and most powerful appearance towards the end of "You're That Spider Guy", as well as being worked in throughout the score.

Zimmer also composes a truly tender and moving love theme, and perhaps the best cue of the score is "We're Best Friends", where it is performed with lush strings and fluttering woodwinds. A true piece of beauty that touches the heart. "I Need To Know" also infuses the listener with a thrilled sense of anticipation, mixing electronics and strings in a classic Zimmer build-up construct. Also notable is "There He Is", with a fluttering electronic and guitar arpeggio piece that conjures up images of creeping, crawling spiders. Truly a brilliant conceptual piece.

Unfortunately, the material for Green Goblin is decidedly less inspired. "I'm Goblin" really is just cacophony, though definitely energized cacophony with some frantic string work, but the appearance of the horn of doom just isn't all that engaging.

Spider-Man is one of those superheros who had a nice streak with Danny Elfman. Elfman’s music wasn’t pushy or showy, but somehow seemed to fit exactly right. In the two movies he scored, the music was really fleshing out the character. After a falling out with director Sam Raimi it was Christopher Young who stepped in, and he did an admirable job for a mostly dumpster worthy movie. The studio hit the reset button and we were given one of James Horner’s freshest scores in years. Now it seems like Hans Zimmer was always director Marc Webb’s first choice, and with a gap in his schedule he was now able to commit. Hans has always been an innovator and has always been the most influential composer in in the industry. He’s a driving force for genres and drives other composers crazy when editors flock to his music to temp track every movie in development. And that’s probably the most admirable thing about the post 2005 Hans Zimmer, is his desire to evolve. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 gave him an opportunity to flock some of his most cherished friends and collaborators together. They were dubbed The Magnificent Six and include Pharrell Williams, Johnny Marr, Michael Einziger, Junkie XL, Andrew Kawczynski and Steve Mazzaro. So how did this band experiment work out? Extremely well surprisingly, but not without a little bumps along the way.

Hans Zimmer is known for working through collaboration, and this isn’t the first time he’s co-composed with a group of people in band form. One of his most underrated scores is Barry Levinson’s An Everlasting Piece, which was composed by Hans Zimmer & The Jigs (a band comprised of frequent collaborators and named for the film). For Black Hawk Down they were simply referred to as the “BHD Band”. So this isn’t a new idea, but the talent involved here makes it one.
