Yes, you can get too much of a good thing
This collection of music from one of the summer of 2002's most anticipated blockbusters definitely has its moments. For the most part, it's a collection of great music, but it suffered from less-than-spectacular mixing. In fact, I think that my college roommate and I used to put more thought into the order of the songs on the plethora of mix tapes we used to make for our road trips.

After opening with the Spider-Man theme from days gone by, the album jumps into "Hero" -- the it-was-good-the-first-100,000-times single that you can't help but hear on the radio at least five times a day (though I'll admit it -- I still like the song). The Canadian boys from Sum 41 follow up with "What We're All About." And then it pretty much lost me in a sea of guitars and drums. For a while, the album just feels like one endless rock song. It gets a little sickening.

Corey Taylor breaks up the monotony with "Bother," a slower song with tons of feeling. And then the songs start to vary a little bit. A little bit. But not too much.

There are a lot of great songs on this album, but, in listening to it, I learned that you can, in fact, get too much of a good thing. Listening to this album is something like eating nothing but pizza for a month. I love that edgy rock sound, but the Spider-Man soundtrack opened my eyes to the fact that today's edgy rock bands pretty much all sound the same.

Be Warned: Censored Music!
I love the music on this CD...I hate the fact that the song "Bother" by "Corey Taylor" was editted to delete a slightly vulgar word. I would suggest not buying this CD since you only get 99.99% of the CD due to the censorship. You won't see a sticker or warning anywhere else regarding this editting, but it's amazing what a difference in a song one word can make.

This album is not good.
The only reason why i give this 5 stars is because of the Pete Yorn song, "undercover". I really love this song.

The rest of the songs are "vintage rock" or nu-metal. We all know Nu-Metal [stinks]
