We Are Only What We Feel
NoNoNo

Spiderman soundtracks are synonymous with good music. There’s Black Lab’s inclusion on the first soundtrack along with Chad Kroeger and Jose Scott. There’s Train’s song “Ordinary” on the second soundtrack along with Dashboard Confessional’s “Vindicated.” And the best song off of any soundtrack comes from Yellowcard with “Gifts and Curses.” So in marches a 3rd soundtrack with the release of the movie. While this is probably the weakest of the 3 soundtracks so far, there are some highlights. Snow Patrol’s “Signal Fire” goes into the annals as one of the great songs from the Spiderman soundtracks. As does the Killer’s “Move Away”, which actually pretty much outdoes anything from the band’s “Sam’s Town.” Another highlight on the disc is Wolfmother’s “Pleased to Meet You”, the song is jumpy and it rocks. The track that steals the show though is unsigned band Sounds Under Radio’s “Portrait of a Summer Thief.” These guys clearly have the best song on the album, and they shouldn’t be unsigned for very much longer. Other than those four tracks there’s not much left of note. There are some decent songs, but nothing that stands out as being that good. Like I said there’s not much here, and I don’t think it warrants buying the whole album, but the four songs that I mentioned are definitely worth buying. Nothing to rave about, but it’s a decent soundtrack.
