Album Stream: The Super-Indie Spider-Man 3 Soundtrack

Lately, I've been almost as excited about the Spider-Man 3 soundtrack as I am about the accompanying summer blockbuster. The movie, of course, comes out out on Friday, but the soundtrack hits stores tomorrow, and you can listen to the entire album online now at AOL Music.

It really is a pretty daring soundtrack for a big summer movie. The contributions from bands like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Jet are edgy but also fit nicely into the superhero-movie mold. My favorite tracks are probably the Walkmen song, "Red River," and Black Mountain's "Stay Free" — both of which are pretty interesting departures from each band's sound. However, Snow Patrol's "Signal Fire" is a bit maudlin and movie-soundtracky for my taste. Anyway, give the CD a listen and let me know what you think.

Very nice! I effing love Black Mountain and was one of the 30 people who actually payed attention to 'em when they opened for Coldplay at the Shoreline Amph. in Mountain View. They're an excellent live band, and their album is so fun to listen to. Especially on a short road trip out of town! If Wayne Coyne says they're awesome, than they're worth a listen!
