Well… I’m a little late finding out about this little concept album, but wow! For those who haven’t heard of this, I’d say just pop over to Spotify or YouTube and give this a listen, or read on and decide for yourself.
TL;DR: Rock artists contribute Spider-Man-inspired songs inspired by his greatest moments and characters, and Stan Lee shows up to narrate it.
I’m a fan of good old-fashioned rock n roll. Buddy Holly. Chuck Berry. All that stuff. I’m a Beatlemaniac and more, so learning that an album such as this existed was astounding. I’m still shocked I wasn’t aware of this!
The songs range from character pieces to theme songs, from Gwen Stacy to Doc Ock to the first and best of them all: “High Wire.” Seriously, if you don’t want to devote much time listening to the whole album, at least listen to the first couple tracks to get the gist of it.
For me, I’m also surprised these songs (namely High Wire) hasn’t made a drop into any of the movies yet, or most other pop culture surrounding the web-head. Mayhap it’s only a matter of time.
So if you’re looking for a nice gem from the ages of rock n roll, give Spider-Man: Rock Reflections of a Superhero a go.
TL;DR Score: I’m a man! I’m a Spiiii-der-MAAAAAAAN!
