I can't get that main theme or the music for The Ganali Device out of my head! Brilliant! So great to come out of the pictures of a modern film humming a few themes!

Love the rendition of the main theme on the unreleased cue for the scene of Peter sneaking into Oscorp Tower:

It's kind of crazy how such a high-mark score like this just gets entirely released out on the internet like that... Did heads roll for such a thing?

But it's not like Horner scores gets expanded treatment.

I'd imagine... but then, there's not a great deal on the recording sessions that wasn't on the soundtrack. Mostly just short, redundant cues.

It's one of the complete scores that we're leaked in shortest time.

I have finally seen this film and must say: FANTASTIC!

It seems to me that its release date between THE AVENGERS and THE DARK KNIGHT RISES unfairly made it suffer. No way it could have matched THE AVENGERS´ box office, and no way it could have gotten the pre-release respect audiences and critics had for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is neither the all-out-wink-wink-fun fest as THE AVENGERS, nor is it as dark and serious as THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.

It goes along its own way, being fun and serious, in wonderfully measured balance.

While I have a soft spot for Raimi´s "Spiderman 2" the other parts of his trilogy were disappointing to me.

And although Webb has to cover lots of familiar ground he does it in such a fresh, unfussy, and surprisingly emotionally satisfying way that I was blown away by this film.

Of course, Andrew Garfield is one of the major reasons why this succeeds. He is the perfect Spiderman, so much better than Maguire, so much more true to the comics, so much more interesting to watch (sorry, Mr. Maguire - your talents are better suited to other material).

And last but not least - the movie works also BECAUSE of James Horner´s magnificent score which IMO is one of his all time best and definitely on my top ten list this year.

I agree Horner's score was excellent. The best superhero score of the year, imo.

A small feature about the score (the first five minutes of the video):

Is it just me, or at 1'40 into the track The Briefcase, does Horner actually quote Elfman's Spidey theme?

It sound a bit like it. But it's a small motif used in the score, as a motif for Doctor Connors. You can hear it in Peter's Suspicions.

Hey, maybe you should do a few things before your next review.

1. Listen to Elfman's scores.
2. See the movie.



lol!!!!!!!

You mean he won't actually become Spider-Man until mid-way through the album now? What a gyp! The order of the tracks made it seem like he would become Spider-Man immediately after the Main Titles were over, and NOW you're telling me that we have to get through 8 or 9 other tracks before we'll actually get to the part where he becomes Spider-Man?

well, if you listen to MY sequence, you can get to SPIDERMAN right away!!!!!

A recent purchase and a big surprise!!!

I would confess I wasn't expecting anything since I didn't remember the score in the film.

But after listening the cd I can say it's a great score!!!! Right now it becomes one of my favorites by James Horner !!!!!!

I've been listening to this a bit today, and while I still don't think it's very good, the strings from 1:10-1:48 in "Metamorphosis" are probably the best work in the whole score. Hair-raising.

At four minutes into the video there's a shot of several pianists playing. Was that three pianists or fourr?
